Once every few centuries, a special night arrives: the Dead Moon.
Without fail, creatures from the Netherworld will attempt to travel to the world of the living
to carry out their nefarious plans under the moon's sinister glow.

Morten is one of such dark creatures.
However, the spell teleporting him is tampered with, and his body is torn to pieces, leaving only his head.
Luckily this does not kill him, since he’s a Lich (and basically a talking skeleton).

With only his head and a few tricks, he enlists the help of the tragically naïve nun who finds him and a newly raised zombie warrior to find the lost pieces of his body and his Grimoire, the source of his power, which was, tragically, also lost.

Meet spooky, interesting characters typical of Halloween season, each with their totally different combat style, and fight your way through the four dungeons in this quick, fun romp through haunted settings.

Morten is a lich and a necromancer who came from the Netherworld, but due to a casting accident has become body-less and unable to use the majority of his powers.

Mariah is a gentle, naïve, and rather dense nun. She finds Morten's head and offers her help, carrying Morten's head around.

Robin is an undead warrior risen by Morten in the graveyard to serve as a minion.

Other characters also help and join Morten on his search.

The game is an entry for the Halloween Contest here at RMN. It's meant to be a short, 4-dungeon game with quirky characters and a lighthearted, comedy mood.

Dead Moon Night takes places in the world of Arum.

Game completed!

So, after a couple of weeks of frenzied, crazied, deadline-looming omg-how-is-it-so-late-already developing stint, the game is finished and tested.

So, please play and leave us your comments! Really, really, please leave us something, even one liners like “I liked it”. We sank an unhealthy amount of time and tension on it.

With the feedback begging out of the way, that’s it! Enjoy the game!

I know the story is complete and all that, but I loved it so much! I was wondering if you were thinking of either a sequel or a prequel?
Thank you got through and finished the game - what a hoot!! loved the game's interaction
Yeah there's no levelling in this game. The vampire has 2000HP I think, I don't have a copy anymore of the version up for download. He only uses magic attacks, he uses stronger attacks when he is below 40%.

The dominant strategy is to use the Fur Tank mod dropped by the Willowisp in the village. If you didn't get one then I'd maximise mdf and your chosen attack stat. Good luck!
Okay how do I kill the vampire and do I always stay on level 1
Please do!

In terms of chronology "In Search of Freedom" is next but it's only at the demo stage. The next complete game chronologically (and in terms of dev) is The Grumpy Knight. Have fun!
How come I never played this cute game? O_O I had so much fun and the characters were hilarious! I need to check out all your games right now! :D
We do not condone harassing other members by PM.
ahh hello,been quite a while since i came to this site :3
finished this game and enjoyed it.
the characters were cute,i loved the drawings,and the ending :O...ill leave that to the players :3 but i loved it
if i were to say what i disliked... umm
the monsters which you could only do 1 damage too(particularly the scorpions because there was so many) bothered me
but other then that it was a great game

its not hard at all nor is there there much grinding(just fight some extra battles early game to build up supplys)
so if you want a challenge this is not for you(tho really most rpgs are ez if your able to train and gain power/gear)

i found it interesting how you did not use lvling up in the battle system as that's the 1st time ive seen it.

i also enjoyed the comedy in the game

would defiantly try more games made by this developer
full game playthru

I didn't care for the ending. I almost wanted to cry for Mariah, actually. She's self centered, bossy, rude, mean, etc., all in her own way. Sure she may not have been mean to the populace, but she used each and every one of the monsters. I hate people like that.
I really suprised when Mariah finally show her true identity when the game is about to end. :o
But interesting game anyway :)
I would love to more of things like this; a few dialogue issues but I loved it. <3
Really enjoyed the game. I was in awe of the mapping and the battles were fun.

The only problem I had with it would be the respawning enemies in maze like dungeons. It's so frustrating trying to find your way around while dealing with a constant stream of battles. Otherwise, a great game.
DMN is actually finished, it's in testing. If you want I can pass you a test copy and then just let us know if you find any bugs?

Hey I'd be up for some bug testing in exchange for early access..want me to PM you my email or something?

Eagerly awaiting the Remake...debating whether I should play this now or wait for it. (Already played Grumpy Knight and loved it)
Oh my God, this game... THIS GAME!!! SO HILARIOUS AND BADASS! AND MARIAHHHH!!! Seriously, I just adoooored Mariah from start to finish. When she was naive, and esp. how she renamed people, those situations were so hilarious. Then, slowly she started to disappear into background,
but all along, she was evil, intelligent and cunning and
THE BEST CHARACTER EVER! So adorable, awesome and just badass! xD I loooooved all the remaining characters as welll: Morten, Robin, Dahlia, Hilda, Vlad. Even the brides and Behemoth were awesome. Mariah is pretty much my waifu now xD

Also, I loved
stacking 3 skeleteon mages
, something which made Robin pretty much OP, ending 99 % fights very very quickly. I love fights which end in one turn so really loved that. Also Vlad magic looked really cool, but honestly, couldn't test it much thanks to Robin's epicness. Very interesting, and lovable battle mechanics!

This is the most hilarious games I have ever played, and one of the best too! 10/10, really really loved it!

One more thing... Robin x Mariah ftw! XD

Also, I demand a sequel!!! :D
Is there any significance to the guy you give the Nether Dust to in the caves? He reminded me of Pudding but that game was made after this one?

When we made Dead Moon Night there was no over-arching plot or plan, it was a stand alone game.

It was around when we started working on the Grumpy Knight that we expanded back stories and planned some future events etc.

Pudding is not related to the Greater Demon in Dead Moon Night. That said some events set in motion in Dead Moon Night will gain some speed in our next game.

it's a nice adorable game so far ~ but I have 1 little question

i'm in the dungeon with the torches, is the demon that transforms after X turns only a 1-time encounter or am I just having bad luck~? I died 2 times to him, on the 3rd, I accidently ran away from battle instead of using the skill ((happens often to me)) so I changed my characters equipment and saved, now it doesn't spawn, I tried different enemies in dungeons and waited over 10 turns, can't find him again.

EDIT: I advanced in the game and found another one that transformed, but was a female this time, still curious to know if I can encounter the male one again, i'll play it again once it gets re-released anyways

MORE EDIT: I found him now, don't mind my silly question ^^~
You just need to do a large amount of damage in one turn, so setup Robin for his best move and get Fenrir to max his DMG+ and she should go down.

I thank you for the reply, and hope for the best. In defeating the ghost, that is.
With a little luck, and ability, I'll eventually experience the ending I've read throughout these posts.

There, I beat her. Nice choice of dialogue, I have to say. I take it laughs(or is it laughter?) were intended. Now, onto the next challenge!
