It's the graveyard shift at Happy Knife Co.

You're a butcher working the night shift at a run-down meatshop, but you're not alone. You must use machines found throughout the butchery to saw, chop, grind, mince, and otherwise prepare meat for tomorrow's customers, while avoiding the terrifying apparitions which haunt the old building, or perhaps your own mind.

Play through Story Mode to discover the horrifying truth behind the mysterious Happy Knife Butchery and its sole employee, then take your skills into Nightmare Mode to see how quickly you can fill the meat case without dying. Compete against your friends for the fastest time.

Goodnight Butcher reviews and comments

As cheap as it looks, it's not. Have taken the Game with you in a Bundle, expected nix and yet am surprised. Just from the short Innuendo time, it kind of captivated me right away. One is a Butcher and works at night in his Butcher shop so That Customers face full Expenses the next Day. Sounds like a Simulator at first, but it's not. Everything starts normally: You go to the Cold Store to get the slaughtered Game, then you have to divide it into the adjacent Rooms to divide it up and process it accordingly into different Goods. Once you have done that, you dispose of the Leftovers and then go to the Salesroom and put your Goods in the Display. With every Wild what you process, strange Incidents pile up in the Butch.Mal the Current is gone, suddenly doors are locked and then the right Haunting starts. The Game takes your Hand from the Beginning and shows you what to do. So that you don't get lost there is a Map that always shows you where to go. Unfortunately, only the Keyboard is supported. But Goes well out of hand. Graphically, a Top-down Comic Graphic is offered. For In between Very Entertaining and for 1.99€ also not too expensive. They are always Worth it. I will play it a little more In any case.

(You can get a detailed Impression of the Game here: Goodnight Butcher – Horror only for Vegetarians) A really cheap and unfortunately also quite bad Horror Game in which you process meat and be chased by the Ghosts of dead Animals, as far As I understand that. The weak Technique and equally weak Story are the lesser problems of this Game. Much worse is the desolate Gameplay. You take Meat from Chopping, go into one Room to shred it, then go into another Room to cut out Steaks, and into yet another Room to make Sausages, and into another one for Mince Steaks or something. Then you go all the Way to the back to dispose of the bones in The Trash or to squeeze the fuses back in, which keep jumping out, and then all the way to the front to put the Meat in the Counter of the Butcher'S shop. You just do That over and over again. Variations in this Process do not exist, at least not as far as I have played. Over Time, you are chased by more And more ghosts and besides, some Doors are blocked, but that doesn't make the Game more exciting, but only more annoying, because then you also have to go long Detours. Last But not Least, and this may be the Worst thing about a Horror Game: It's just not creepy. No One will run a Shiver over their Backs at this Game, except perhaps convinced Vegetarians, but also because of the Ghosts, but also because they are forced to process meat.
