the puppet combo one is 96x better


Really unique presentation (pun intended) with a creepy They Live atmosphere to it. Well done for pushing the limits of Microsoft Office!


Tried it, loved it


A game made in powerpoint, now that's not something you see every day! Super great job at it! Story was pretty good and the growing insanity nails the genre on the head. Made a video, hope you enjoy! 

Hello! I enjoyed the game but unable to finish since my computer can't handle the The Night Shift1.0.6.ppsx (it's very slow at the intense part) so i downloaded the 1997-2003 but there's no sound

Hi Gloom Doom thank you for this feedback. We think the lack of the sound in 1997 version is a bug but we haven't found a perfect solution for that. As for the slow loading in the 2016 version, well I'd say that's a performance issue because we use a lot animations and sound effect, but I have no idea how to optimize a powerpoint game... Sorry for the inconvenience but still, thanks again for giving it a try!

Hi Gloom Doom, I have uploaded a 1.0.7 version of the 1997-2003 file and fixed the exporting bug. Please feel free if you still want to give it a try. Thank you for playing the game, cheers!
