Inspired by the movies Groundhog Day and Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2. The game takes place in a regular suburban town, powered by a nuclear plant, but the main character gets stuck in a temporal loop, after an accident in the nuclear power plant. If you die, you just wake up in your bed and the day starts again. When you wake up you still know the information from the previous day and this influences the dialogue choices between you and the citizens. Be a ruthless killer or help an old grandma cross the road. Nothing matters when you're stuck in the same day for eternity... But maybe there's a way out.

Heh, good inspirations. Now all I can hear is that dude yelling garbage day.

Looks really good, hopefully the choices are actually as influential as the dev says.

Any game that let's me mindlessly kill or just walk around at my leisure is an instabuy.

The team I was working with one year ago had exactly the same idea, with a different theme than silent night deadly night of course, like 3 years ago (and im sure they still wanted to do it in the future). Im somewhat glad somebody made it first becuase of reasons I cant talk about.

Sounds fun, will try it without a doubt. I hope it doesnt control like those surgeon/goat simulator games, though some of the animations tell me thats sadly how it controls.

Looks pretty cool, the indiedb page said its Unreal Engine 4 so that should scale well and look great. I really like the art style, I'll deff get this when it comes out.

I dunno, having ground hog day in videogames. Isn't that like most of them, the only thing I can see by that is the objectives won't be clear

He's taking suggestions from the YouTube comments section and one of them is surprisingly funny.

That does look very, very awesome. Hope there's some story there too, aside from all the fun one can have.
