Such a great game!
Midnight Shift Remake
A downloadable game for Windows
Step back into the shoes of an unfortunate security guard who encounters strange things while simply leaving for the night. Expect 10 to 15 minutes of game play across both modes, each with a unique ending, and even more play time if you're looking to uncover the secret ending (Extended Scenario).
This was a one-person portfolio project. I initially started work on this project but I canceled it in favor of a different project called Urbex. After getting good reception on the original Midnight Shift, it was motivation enough to restart the project. Not only did I recreate the original game but I created an all-new scenario that is even more creepy.
Enjoy the remake and thanks for playing!

One thing I now know about myself thanks to Urbex and this game, is that I am afraid of mannequins. This game is unnerving and truly scary. Thanks for the heart attack. I did a playthrough of this game and I will link it below if you are interested in watching.
game was creepy and good.
it was cool. the combination of midnight shift to urbex was nice. but i have to say. the original midnight shift and urbex were more creepy and had an darker athmosphere. the new mannequins doesnt really look that scary. i really liked the original ones. but the idea of making them new and combine them was really nice.
The atmosphere was really well made; the noises, darkness, ambience and environment went together really, really well to make on great atmosphere throughout the game. It kept up the sense of ominousness and scariness throughout the whole game. (Video at the bottom if anyone wants to watch!)
The sense of something might be behind was really well made too; with the closed spaces and the moving mannequins, it just went really well together. The story was not bad too, the ending makes the player think if things are normal or whether something else other than what they experienced throughout the game might be happening.
The only thing I thought that was strange was the brown circular corridor at the end. I thought it broke the immersion because it was suddenly different from everything else. But other than that, the game was really well made!!
All in all, a pretty well made short horror game! Can't wait to play Urbex and also future games by you; you've seemed to nail down sounds and atmosphere!
had a good time playing, but I do wish there were more jump scares or scary moments.
Had a good time with one. I ended up playing both versions.
Here is my gameplay
very cool game i enjoyed playing it.
Thanks so much for making this game Phantom, sadly my nerves of steel could handle the jump scares, but still had fun playing it.
We're taking our real job and making it happen in real life! In Midnight Shift, we play as a security guard. Robin Williams might appear!
Fun game man so many loud noises had me jumping dude haha
Hello, I'm FRench.
Good job on it, thank you for the game !
I really liked it, the only thing I have to say is that it should be longer and have more stuff on the menu page.
really enjoyed this game. good job on it. bit of a cliff hanger on the extended. hope there is more to come :)
really nicely made game definately got a jump scare or two. good job with it :)
I only hear about mannequins .. mannequins don't frighten me in the least, about to check it out .. :) I hope mannequins aren't the only thing spooky about it ..
Before I heard markiplier complain about mannequins, I never heard anyone else talk about them .. now everyone seems to fear them
Ok.. I played it, it's quite short.. nothing really happens, I have NO clue why I was collecting keys.. visually it was nice but there was no story.. nothing scary about it at all to me..
Lots of potential since the environment is pretty well done, but it seems very much like it's unfinished and not fleshed out..
Throw in a story, extend the experience to other environments with some objectives and intrigue and I'd gladly buy it :) .. but the way is currently, it's just a time killer.. and it doesn't last long.
I recently made a video about this game, go check it out! :P
One of my worst fears is Mannequins so this game scared me real good! Here's the video I made on it.
Really an interesting experience, though I ended up playing the remake, original, and urbex all in one go~ Would love to see the project expanded into a larger story.
Hello everyone, Hope you all having a awesome day!
I've played\recorded this game and to be honest I liked it,
nice graphics and atmosphere but the mannequins, i think i like them better in the original version.
But i wanted to share my video/gameplay with you all so here it is :
Thank you for your time, have a nice day!

Very nice horror, enjoyed playing it!
Thanks so much had a blast playing this really well done!
I liked the environment in this one, having a little more to explore. However, I didn't like the mannequins. In the previous game they were creepy and even a little scary when they were watching. I found these new ones silly looking, and the game loses a lot of the creepy vibes because of it. It would be great to maybe combine the environment of this game with the mannequins from the first.
Hey, firstly, great game. I would suggest this to all fans of horror or anybody looking for an enterance to the horror game genre. This game is very spooky but manages to keep it to a level where it's not constant jumpscares. Very well made and very beautiful graphicularly.
I gotta say it was pretty darn cool with the mannequins. I played both and I actually ended up liking the first one more but good job nonetheless and I hope you have future content!
I think I like the original demo better. The mannequins are goofy-looking and not quite as scary. Not that this is bad, I just like the original better. Plus, the "original" and "extended" campaigns in this version don't seem to differ in length by anymore than at least one minute. I thought you would have added more content than that.
Pretty awesome! Wish it was a bit longer with some more spooks but great nonetheless!
I JUST played your original last week, and I thought that it was awesome. After playing this one, though, I was shaking!
Thank you :) Remake turned out really awesome! Let me know if you need anything :)
how do you open it?
