Brave at Night

Brave At Night was founded in 2015 with the goal to tell unforgettable, gut-wrenching stories that players will remember for years to come. With a lot of passion and determination, our two person team found a success with its first title – Yes, Your Grace. Thanks to the overwhelmingly positive response to the game, we were able to grow our studio, continue to work on awesome projects, and help other developers publish their work too!

Featured Game

In Yes, Your Grace, a Kingdom management RPG where your decisions have consequences, petitioners will arrive in the throne room to ask for your guidance. Every turn, decide whether to intervene with their problems or conserve resources for more important matters. Remember, your capital is limited, and not everyone has the Kingdom's interests at heart...

Mind Scanners (The Outer Zone) is a retro-futuristic management game about diagnosing and treating anomaly citizens. Meet peculiar characters, analyze their personalities and decide whether they need your help. Use arcade-style treatment devices and manage your resources to keep The Structure in harmony. Remember, you take full responsibility of your patients.
