You awake to discover that you and several others are imprisoned within a pitch-black labyrinth. The rough-hewn, stone passages provide barely enough room to crawl through and the walls claw at your skin as you pass. Equipped with nothing but dim candles, you must work together to explore the maze and escape. Distressingly, the weak candlelight only illuminates your immediate surroundings. Worse still, you’re beginning to suspect something else is moving in the suffocating darkness - just beyond the flickers of your candle.
And it despises the light.
The Night Cage is a cooperative, tile placement game that traps 1 to 5 lost souls within an ever-changing labyrinth of eternal darkness. Each prisoner has nothing but a candle to aid them in their escape, but its weak light can only illuminate the passages directly adjacent to them. As players move, new pathways are revealed while old ones disappear, consumed in the darkness forever. Every move will require thoughtful consideration and collective strategy to keep your candles burning long enough to find the way out.
