“All in all Vigil The Longest Night is a fantastic indie 2D Action-RPG with metroidvania exploration. If you like discovering secrets, games such as Salt & Sanctuary and don't mind reading through story/dialogue, Vigil will keep you immersed in its dark fantasy world. It has great replayability with a number of weapon/skill trees to challenge at a decent pricetag.”

“Vigil: The Longest Night aims high and almost hits the mark thanks to its amazing level design, epic boss fights, uncanny visuals, and Lovecraftian and gothic horror themes. Sadly, it's bogged down by its muddled story, confusing map layout, and perplexing campaign progression.”

“If you loved Salt and Sanctuary then Vigil: The Longest Night will certainly impress with its tight gameplay and captivating world.”
