Thanks so much! I like your theory about the alien, the experience is really designed for players to try to figure out what's really going on (which definitely has a definitive answer if you're willing to look and listen carefully).

Thanks for the creative feedback, your point about the alien standing out is interesting and insightful. The game really is about tone and subtlety, so you're probably right! Also, thanks for the inspiring words, I am currently working on a VR project (for which a demo will be out soon) that I believe will be truly awesome.
Thanks for the bug report, I actually thought I had fixed that for the final release but it would seem that something slipped past my attention.
Again thanks for the comment and I hope you enjoyed the game.
One Last Night is a student project inspired by the cinematic platformer genre of the 90's. It is a 2-D narrative experience focused on visuals and story in a familiar setting. Éric Chahi's games (Another World and Heart of Darkness) greatly influenced the production and visuals of One Last Night. If you enjoyed Another World, Heart of Darkness, Flashback, or Oddworld and would like to see these style of games come back show support for the project by visiting the itch.io page.
As of now there is only one installment of One Last Night. If you play and enjoy the game, show support by giving your feedback and spreading the word. Reception of Act 1 will definitely influence the decision to continue the project by making an Act 2.
The main goals of the project were to learn how to make a basic 2-D game for PC, produce illustrations in photoshop, and create detailed rotoscope animations. All artwork in the game came from reference images and videos. Backgrounds and animations were made by drawing over still images and video frames.
