How to play

You wake up in the middle of a spooky town trying to find your way back home. Help the citizens of this weird town and they will open paths for you.


The streets are swarming with spirits and if you let them, they will take you away. Shoot them down with your mysterious powers and win candy in return.

Spend your candy on vending machines across the town, and grow in power. Make sure to find them all as the night progresses, the spirits become spookier.


The Lost Night is a game made in PICO-8 by Mario Carballo and Joven Paul. It's our first attempt at an RPG and we enjoyed the process. Sadly we hit all the limits within PICO-8, so more content or improvements are would be too hard to implement. 

We appreciate your feedback. 

-Thanks for playing


If you Purchase "The Lost Night" for $2 bucks at Itch.io You'll be able to download the game for Mac, Pc and Linux.

We also included a Guide/Map that you can use to navigate our little world.

Really fun game, love the music, my only suggestion is adding an inventory so you can check on what items you have

Fun i'm just not sure what the story here is

A delightful game! I very much like the ability for multiple ghosts to attack at the same time; it adds an extra layer since you can opt to pick enemies off one by one or round them up and deal with them in one brawl. My only notes are the dog girl (“FIND MY DOG!”), and the mausoleum (“Save Us?”)I couldn’t tell if either of these were quests. If they were, I have no clue how to complete them.

I LOVED this game!! It's so fun to play, gave me a bit of annoyed moments but in the end its super cute and enjoyable. Love the style too <33

I have the dog, but when i go to the girl, she starts screaming, "FIND MY DOG!"
