A downloadable game for Windows

Step back into the shoes of an unfortunate security guard who encounters strange things while simply leaving for the night. Expect about 15 minutes of game play across both modes, each with a unique ending, and even more play time if you're looking to uncover the secret ending (Extended Scenario).


This was a one-person portfolio project. I initially started work on this project but I canceled it in favor of a different project called Urbex. After getting good reception on the original Midnight Shift, it was motivation enough to restart the project. Not only did I recreate the original game but I created an all-new scenario that is even more creepy.

Enjoy the remake and thanks for playing!

I felt like this was a bit of a backwards step in terms of horror. The mannequins just looked kinda... silly...

Made a video for this lol.

The game was amazing and i was constantly on my feet every corner.

It's funny good game  짧고 재밌음 엄청 무섭 진 않아서 좋음

I have to say Urbex was great, then came Midnight Shift, now here we are with a remake of sorts of Midnight Shift. I have to say I loved the VHS style from the original Midnight Shift. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but play the original Midnight Shift first. The remake still has the scare factor which I do truly love...Good job Phantom

I loved the original, Midnight Shift and Urbex were some of the first games I played on my channel and while I like the remake for it's own reasons I still think the original is better. The remake seems to have too stuff outside of what the original had, like the goofy mannequins and random stuff around. Still had a blast playing it!

Hi! Thanks for making this game, I made you a video


Had a great sinister feel. The extended version you were waiting for a jump scare which you found one or two but in a very subtle way. Used alot more of the atmosphere to deliver which I appreciate ALOT. The tunnel got me feeling nervous which was fun. Wish there was more content past the tunnel! Good work.

Great game!

I never played the original, but the remake is a pretty good horror game.

I found all the keys because i'm a good employee

nice game, I hope you enjoy the video. It's the first game in my indie Romp :)

I loved the original so I had to give the extended version a go! Definitely some very good jumps! Would loved to have seen more of the creepy mannequins from the first one but still definitely enjoyed myself! Can't wait to see your next project!

this was awesome especially the tunnel ending :D

I did not feel much inside the game. I think it needed a little challenge.
the environment is good, but has been little used.
the dolls do not scare, I missed the fear. Really.
I wanted to feel inside the game but some aspects prevent immersion.

This remake is very good and the scares were very well made but I felt like the maniquenes themselves were not as frightening. They just looked very cartoony and did not seem threatening at all while in the original the humanoid ones invoked the uncanny valley and seemed more threatening.

This is such a good remake. I'm really looking forward to see what you do with the game. Are you going to do more on this universe 

Greetings from Germany! I really loved playing your game, the atmosphere was great and the scares really good me. It reminded me on another horror game I played a few months ago with all this puppets (which were really scary).  Keep the good work up. :)

Too many jumpscares !!! I loved it, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time :) 

I really enjoyed this game the graphics/sound effects really make a good creepy atmosphere I didn't what it to end. lol heres my playthrough enjoy:

I had played the original back when it first came out and this was really cool to see more added to it! but I think this one was more scary, so yeah great game.

I never played the original :( but I LOVED this one. Its atmosphere was already so creepy, and those mannequins just added to it. 

Also I had a cold and that's why I sound like a weasel while playing this lol

play my game worst day of my life if you want a good game

This game was amazing to play and stumbling upon the secret ending was great.

This game was so fun, it was like a laid-back horror! Cannot wait to see more games by the creators. Definitely worth a play. First time in a game my heart went to my throat...and bring out some..."interesting" sounds from me

The ending was nice, but the original was scarier.

I had played the original back when it first came out and this was really cool to see more added to it! Loved the extended version and the new ending! Really creepy stuff

Played the original and loved it so I had to give this one a shot. Pretty good all around and I like how you updated and then added to it. Unfortunately was not able to find the secret ending.

I do have to say though, I think the original mannequins were creepier. 

Ahhh, the old memories, guessing then I could have gotten this supposed secret if I found those numbers and did something with it, HMMM...

THERE AIN'T NO WO-MANNEQUINS lol Great potential with this game. I but hard to be scary without a threat but would love to see more from this. I had fun making a video. 

Coming into this game fresh... it was interesting at least. 

Hello Phantom, I was happy to see you release a remake to midnight shift. I had such fun last year with midnight shift and even more so with Urbex. One thing I do want to note is that original mode is broken. I tried to play it and, as soon as, I go through the door it's pitch black. I thought it was my settings so changed them and still same things. Extended works just fine and, it seems everybody is choosing that option over original anyways. Just thought I would give you a heads up. I enjoyed the warehouse maze it felt more mazey than the first one!

Guys look at this game I found! It is called death wave Beta I highly recommend u play this game! It is an FPS game!!! I don't want u to miss out cause it is free i think for only a week!




THE MANNEQUINS ARE BACK! | The Midnight Shift | Remake HD

i thought this was ace!! i loved how you implemented both urbex and midnight shift 1 in this!! awesome!! great job on creating this extended version :D

Played the first one and played this one. Liked them both!

My channel: youtube.com/jonathick

Please! No more mannequins!! :O

Happy Halloween! 
I made myself a big ol' compilation video of scary games for the occasion, and yours was among them (in fact, it's the first one in the video!)

I have never played the original Midnight Shift, but I was immediately interested upon seeing the night watchman premise, and as much as I do note in the playthrough that moving mannequins is not a new trick, it is exceedingly well done here and definitely caused a few jumps... BEFORE the game veers into getting truly bizarre. Loved it, and would love to see more.
