The Nightjar

By Somethin' Else

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.



You’ve been stranded on a dying spacecraft, spiralling into a black hole … and then your problems really start. “The Nightjar” is an incredible ‘video game with no video,’ featuring the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness, Sherlock, War Horse).

You’ll have to see with your ears, using only sound to survive all that deep space has to throw at you — “The Nightjar” has world-beating sound design and incredible 3D audio technology. From the moment the crew of the Nightjar run for their lives (leaving you behind in a malfunctioning airlock), you’ll find yourself immersed in one of the most realistic game worlds ever created.

To progress, explore using only what you can hear to navigate. Deal with the surprises you meet as you move. Defeat ... well, you'll find out ...


—Requires headphones

***iPhone 6+ is not supported, but the game works perfectly on iPhone 4S, 5, 5C and 6 and iPad 2 upwards.***

“The Nightjar” may well be the best game ever made for headphones and is a sensory experience you’ll never forget, made by a team that’s won more than a dozen awards including BAFTA, IMGA, Sony, GSMA and D&AD awards.

The game is 100% accessible for those who typically use VoiceOver, too.

Customer Reviews

Crashes on startup

I purchased this game as part of a bundle, along with the other 2 Papa Sangre titles, only to find that all 3 games crash on startup every time. I was looking forward to playing all 3 of these games as they seem original and are reviewed well, however I'm very disappointed at the moment. If there is no fix for this bug within a week or so, I will definitely be pursuing a refund.

Can't open it in iOS 9

I downloaded this game when I was still in iOS 8 and it was brilliant, but when I updated my phone to iOS 9.0 I can't open it anymore. Please fix this bug cuz I really love this game

Has been great but ios9 has killed it
