Winter Night Games is an American independent gaming company founded by brothers Josh and Zachary Quarles, focusing on horror and narrative driven experiences.
Winter Night Games was borne from the collective imagination of two dorky brothers. A lifelong interest in video games, pen & paper role playing games and horror stories compelled us to start our own company, where we make the kind of games we like to play and telling the stories we like to tell. WNG came out of what started as a collaborative effort to write a horror novella. While iterating and fleshing out the structure of the story, it became apparent this story would lend itself to being told within the medium of an adventure game. A larger framework was then conceived, which could support an overarching story that could be told through various gaming media, both digital and analog.
Development on WNG's point and click horror adventure game, Arkhangel: The House of the Seven Stars nears completion and will be released in 2018. It will be available for Mac and PC platforms. Composer Chad Seiter (ReCore) is currently writing the score and will release a full album of the game's music.
WNG's tabletop game, The Great Nameless is essentially complete. Playable prototypes have been in place for two years and active playtests and balance adjustments have been ongoing. The next stage will be a Kickstarter campaign in mid/late 2018 to cover manufacturing and shipping costs.
