"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."

[ITA] Gioco molto interessante, non vedo l'ora che esca la versione Steam.

cool game. i like it


I like this game, but it is too short. Probably will be funnier with some steam achivements so it will be more replayable. Gives me some Pony Island wibes :)

It’s definitely not short, it has a whole hunting story, check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLtdJg9i_bU

muy bueno

Such a cool concept! l Cool game

nice game, I love the detail that you cant shoot the wife shadow. and don't worry, I didn't plant the last flag, but i did try again to :b


This is really cool.  Took me a minute to figure out how it was working behind the scenes so I could reset and mess around with a second playthrough.  I feel bad for the dude's wife - maybe instead of being free, she just wants her dang husband to design more maps and get friends on so she has more to do and people to hang out with... EVER THINK OF THAT, JOHN_DEV?  HMMMMM?  😂


how do you reset, I got locked out of the servers, and even after an uninstall and reinstall it still wont let me play...


Update- figured it out nevermind


bro please tell me

Good Game and unique idea but thay too scary for me (i am not a little child i am 16)


ok  buddy

This game was so fun! I made a little skit intro that leads into the game! I love the concept of finding a random game and having super natural aspects occur. I love a good classic!!!

What do we do at the beginning where we pick  servers I am stuck there lol. I'm probably just stupid idk.

Good game! I'll have to check out the new one.

awesome game

I like the design of this game. Very cool !

It`s so cool!

Very fun experience! I love the graphics :3

Игра очень крутая , разработчик хорошо постарался! 

It's very good game with a lot of secret endings

Very cool game!

Very Fun And Simple Game With Many Secret Ending. I Can't Wait To Play The Remasterd Version!

If you ask me, this is no virus, just run it through the original itch io app and it will run without warning you

Finally played it and loved it! Great game and look forward to more.

fully spooked


Amazing horror game! Cannot wait for the new game, but this one is still a must play (even if you need a guide).

i've said this like a million times today lol, but this is easily the scariest game I've ever played so far, I'm really appreciative to the Dev's and everyone who worked on the game, this was a really fun experience (Quite bone chilling!!)

If you want to watch my playthrough here's the link:


I love the sense of freedom this game gives me. allowing me to tackle challenges in my own way.

I've never been so emotionally invested in a game before. the story is just so compelling.


is this game a trojan



E: just try Virus 


Isn't that part of the fun?



This game has inspired me to try new things and push myself out of my comfort zone.

I appreciate the game's attention to detail. with little touches that make the world feel alive.

The voice acting is superb. with performances that really bring the characters to life.

I love it

I had an absolute blast 💥🔫 with this game! (Pun fully intended) No Players Online provides a super uneasy and eerie ambiance and I’m all here for it! This is an awesome concept and I’m so excited that you’re turning it into a full length game! (You should definitely give MapFriend the same treatment btw) . Eventually, I’ll get over to the other demo as well! Thanks for such a great time! 😁
