SUBWAY MIDNIGHT - Nintendo Switch version is now available! Lizz Doll giveaway contest is also being held!!!

PLAYISM is pleased to announce the Nintendo Switch release of horror adventure SUBWAY MIDNIGHT, developed by solo game developer Bubby Darkstar. In addition, to commemorate the release of the Switch version, we are holding a campaign to win a stuffed toy of the main character Lizz.

Lizz who is 2D in game has been transformed into a felt plushie that retains the characters cuteness!

Enjoy Lizz and other characters in our newest release SUBWAY MIDNIGHT

Game Overview

A haunted-house style spookycute walking simulator set on a ghost-infested train from developer Bubby Darkstar! You play as Lizzbeth, a weird girl on an even weirder train.

There's a creep stalking you, the train isn't stopping anytime soon, and your only option is to keep moving forward (and not die)...

In this whimsical, colorful, and downright creepy indie horror game, the player slowly unravels the story in these uniquely hand-crafted train cars. Hang out with ghosts, run away from a weirdo, and try not to become a ghost yourself.
