A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Face and survive the scariest paranormal phenomena and become a true paranormal investigator in this horror game.


3:00am Dead Time is a horror game currently in development about a team of paranormal investigators working for a one of a kind TV show, and travelling around the world to the most haunted places, facing and trying to survive the scariest and deadliest encounters.

The full game will include a full cooperative mode and will be split into Episodes, each one a different story, different location, characters and phenomena to face. Each episode also has different Flashback, Prologue and Epilogue levels, and as you progress in the game, you will be able to unlock new equipment such as better cameras, motion sensors, EMF trackers, drones, etc. and request amulets and other help from experts in the different paranormal fields. Interview the witnesses, prepare your setup, and try to survive (or even fight and vanquish!) the creatures of the paranormal world.


The download available right now is an Early alpha demo of the game, featuring a small section of one of these Episodes.

In this demo you will play as Dana Williams, one of the members of the team, who gets lost during one of the investigations in an abandoned shelter. Your mission is to investigate the source of the terrifying noises and screams the people have been hearing in the building, and try to find your way back to the team, before whatever is in the building finds you.

If you like this demo, please support us by voting on Steam Greenlight so we can release the game through Steam and give it a full Early Access. At this moment, we are also collecting funds to help us finish the development of the game through IndieGoGo with perks for any amount you can pledge starting with one dollar, as well as discounted and Early Access copies of the game.

All the support you can give will be immensely appreciated.

And last, but not least, please remember to give us your feedback. This demo is part of the Early Alpha release, but with your feedback we will keep improving the game and making every release better and scarier :)

Very interesting concept, been following this game for a good while now. Neat demo with solid gameplay and menus. Really liked the cutscene at the end, very creepy stuff. Sounds like it has a lot of potential so I'm certainly eager to see how it pans out.


Thank you very much, we are working hard on the full version of the game and since we recently upgraded our hardware (for the first time in a long long time) we are working towards a much more polished release. Thank you again, we are really glad to see you are liking the game.

Hello, I played your game demo and I can see there is a lot of work needed to be done because I did struggle a lot and I had an odd ending, but I would like to see the game when it is fully done, have you put this demo on the gamejolt website too? Gameplay link is below:

Hi there, and thank you very much for playing our game :)

We are glad to see you like the concept of our game and want to see more of it, and yes, we still need to improve and work on many of the aspects of it, but be sure we are actively fixing the issues people has found on the demo so they don't appear in the next releases nor in the full game (and also, we are fine tuning the gameplay based on all the feedback) :)

The demo is not yet in Gamejolt, we are still distributing it through different websites so an upload on Gamejolt may be ready during the weekend. Thank you for playing the game and for your feedback and support, it really helps us a lot to make the game better :)

Have a great day!
