No Players Online
A downloadable game for Windows and Linux
"No Players Online sees me, booting up old games, looking for that sweet nostalgia kick, and suggests that maybe I let dead things stay buried."
- Rock Paper Shotgun
"..requiring you to wait around inside an empty level for someone else to show up. No Players Online turns this moment into the perfect fodder for a creepy interactive short story."
- The Verge
"No Players Online is a reminder to bring things into the world, to finish things."
- Washington Post
"This would capture the imaginations of amateur internet sleuths—and create a spooky metagame that Hideo Kojima would envy."

I went back to the center but nothing happened. Great game though very good atmosphere.
Super fun experience. Love the concept!
i love the game, great design, gameplay, and the overall concept. rate it a 5/5!
THIS GAME IS SO GOO D AND SPOOKI
This game was super cool! I feel like I would have loved more information on HOW a game would do what John_Dev says, but for what it's worth, it's a spooky game that I had a blast checking out. It was the final game I played in this 3 scary games video!
This Game Lookin' Kinda
S U S
hm... we need some MU
How can i configure the mouse sensitive?
When I try to press enter on online servers it only makes some sound but doesn't write connecting to the server or something like that, Can you help me please? (I don't mean Konami Code)
Wait is this true depression
hey! I have a small problem- when I first installed the game it worked fine, however, the second time I tried to play, no servers were showing up, so I uninstalled the game and re-installed it but nothing seems to work, please help?
when you enter the game and you see no servers then press up up down down left right left right B A and the servers will come back :)
I must say, I was somewhat dissapointed. The game seems to present itself as exploring the concept of dead online servers and the eerie feeling they give, but quickly ditchs that in favor of a creepypasta-tier "loved one inside the cartridge" story and surprise ARG that I wasn't pleased to discover was mandatory to get the real ending.
But there WERE options to get the ending or not.  You can leave the game like the "JOHN_DEV" guy told you to or  You can capture and return the flag, ending the game.
Another option to get the ending is  Shoot the gramophone and continue getting stalked by some ghostly being or  Don't shoot the gramophone and continue exploring the arena
of course, it is fiction. but having this on VHS is about as dumb as me writing a story taking place in the 80s and writing that the people in the story have smartphones. They didn't exist in the eighties and neither did multiplayer online gaming really exist when VHS was still popular.
Well guess what idiot this game is supposed to be fiction, not real.
i know it is fiction your it is a game. but even fiction needs to be fiction has rules and multiplayer did not really take off till the end of vhs so why would this game be found on VHS footage? wouldn't at the very least be found on DVD.
Well, you know that the game is fiction, and that you know that it's a game. But guess what? Fiction isn't real! That means that I can make a game where airplanes existed in 1748! And guess what? That means that my game is fiction! Get your facts straight!
You calling me a moron means that you are afraid that I'd win the argument. And guess what? I just did
"a story taking place in the 80s and writing that the people in the story have smartphones"
BRUH THAT'S LITERALLY FICTION
but part of writing fiction is writing stuff that is believable smartphones in a story in the 80s is not that believable of premise anymore than writing a story about a car manufacturing plant in the 1800s. but you know this you just like to argue with people because you seem to have nothing better to do with your time.
You dumb fiction doesn’t have to be believable. Have you heard about Fairy Tales?
I am done with you. you nothing but a miserable person who does nothing but trolls people on this website for your own pleasure because you think it makes you feel better about your own feeling of inadequacy but what you have yet to realize is that you only add to your own misery by trolling the people here. because all of the comments you made here have been nothing but putting people down . so you try to make yourself feel important here by putting people down and thinking you know better than everyone. Well, I sorry you want to this instead of making friends or talking to people normally. i wish you do better for yourself. but take care ok and I wish you the best.
You saying "troll" in my face means that your point is false and that I'm correct. We can all see it. Quit lying to us, we know that you have been defeated and that you have no point or any evidence to back up your claim
You think YOU are smart? Do you even have a point in saying "Multiplayer in the 80s? That's DUMB"? No you don't. A "moron" could see it, you don't have a point. You are so dumb, that you have a brain with a negative amount of braincells. Must be...do do do...negative 100 braincells.
You like to argue a LOT because people like you don't have any evidence or point in an argument. Man, you should go back to Elementary School and learn about arguments and debating
