You’re a newly-hired security guard for a local franchise of the mostly defunct Dreddy’s Pizza Palace children’s entertainment chain. You used to come here all the time as a kid. Now as an adult, this place feels wrong... cursed. Ghosts of the past haunt you, the animatronics are stalking you, and reality is breaking around you. Still, you press on - rent is due soon and this is the only job you can get right now. Can you survive your memories of the past brought to life by a dying, haunted arcade?

One Night at Dreddy's is a solo game of economic horror, inspired by Five Nights at Freddy's and Silent Hill. It was written for the Wretched & Alone Jam. To play you'll need a deck of cards, some d6s, and a tumbling tower. It makes changes to conventional Wretched & Alone design so that the gameplay is still focused on journaling and survival horror, but there is a greater focus on hope and there are greater odds of making it out alive.

The COLOR edition comes with stylized background and text colors for aesthetics. The B&W edition sets text in black on white background for easier reading. The PRINTER edition replaces the front and back covers with plain text in black and white to be printer-friendly.

Content Warnings: fear, isolation, suspense, despair, violence, death, nostalgia, bullying, physical harm and/or death of children, body horror, economic hardship, capitalism, hallucination, guilt, and overwhelming obligations.

I absolutely love this game! Color Spray Games did an outstanding job. ❤ Would anyone be interested in reading if I post my character's journal on social media when it's finished?

This seems like a good idea. But I have camped for months and can't get a community copy

Unfortunately, community copies are only created when people purchase the game and sales for this game are low. I do hold sales on my games often (this game was 50% off for Halloween), so you may be able to budget for it then. If not, I hope someone buys a copy soon.
