just finished the game and i have to say the game dev has improved alot from arias story! i got more and more attached to the characters after knowing their backstories and seeing them develop throughout all 4 chapters :) there r also more drawn cutscenes so thats cool and also an ENDING SONG??? like i seriously was not expecting that so the sequence hit ten times harder 

puzzles are also quite well thought! if u get stuck theres a hint option. 

this games gonna have me brainrotting for a while HAHAHA 

just started playing and i already love the idea of a helpless companion whom you have to constantly help HAHA + the help tab in the menu where you get to chat with him is really cool too!

side note for mac users: if you're using porting kit for the game and got a popup about rpg maker vxace rtp being required, download it from here: https://www.rpgmakerweb.com/run-time-package run the setup.exe in porting kit to download the rtp folder and make sure to save the rtp folder to the midnight train folder; then go to the midnight train folder and copy all the vx ace rtp folder's audio fonts files etc into the game folder's audio and fonts files

https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/easy-mac-porting.41524/ this helped a lot


Absolute masterpiece, nothing has made me feel this much emotion in years. 10/10 would cry again. Also I would totally buy a Lawton&Wyndell detective agency shirt

i loved this game really
i'm seriously crying even now
i cried for every chapter
i need to raccomend this game to everyone 


words cant express how happy I am that you made a second game :) absolutely LOVED arias story

Incredible game! Filled with a lot of emotional story and great puzzles. 

My playthrough: 


My thoughts on the game:

  • A lot of emotion and detail is put into the story, quite amazing!
  • I don't understand why Diana doesn't go on the train with the others, she could at least try. In other words, what's gonna happen if she walks into the train with them? Or is there some magical barrier that stops her?
  • What does Diana eat?
  • I really like the puzzles, not too easy but not too hard either. Especially not as unforgiving as Aria's story.
  • More thoughts may come later on!

Overall, I'm really enjoying the game so far. Amazing job! :)

it says I cant play because I require RPGVXAce RTP :( did I do something wrong

(2 edits)

yeah you need RPGVXEAce RTP to play ,the one  that the creator of the game gave didn't work for me so i deleted some parts of the link and i found this page , i download the package and installed it  and then i was able to play  :D    RPG Maker RTP Downloads | RPG Maker | Make A Game! (rpgmakerweb.com)

hope that can help you 

and if you don't trust  it or if  it doesn't work , here is the original link  http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages/thankyou-rtp-vx-ace?

the original link have "thankyou-rtp-vx-ace? " at the end and i found it strange so i deleted it then i found the first link :) 

ah tysm it worked but then it just says to be continued instead of letting me play the next chapter even though the download says all chapters 

Hello, I'm Nagasari Ferrea and I'm a Malaysian VTuber. May I stream this game on YouTube and suggest it to my fellow VTuber friends?

this is a masterpiece, i cried a lot in the end, btw copycat and serenity best girl >w<


Downright incredible


One of the best game i have  ever played


Finally able to play other chapters. As expected of lydia. One of the best game I have played.

hello everyone. I've been playing this game for a while now and i'd like to ask on how to solve the puzzle on the third building (the mine building) the precise place is the mirror room. I don't know what i should search there

its been 5 months so ur prolly done with that puzzle but just incase! all u need to do is avoid the other neils and find a mirror that reflects a non-bloody neil, then choose to "touch it":D to get to the mirror i think u just go to the far right then go down


Hahah 😅😅. Actually i haven't finish that hospital level. Since i could skip the level, i decided to do that. I don't know why, but every game with hospital level gives some creep in me, that's why i want to finish that level ASAP.

In short, yeah i finish the game but without the feature of skipping that level i would never have finished it. The game is really good by the way.


This game is a masterpiece
Nothing made me cry that much in months

I can play the game on andriod using Joiplay since it can run rpgmaker vx ace and it runs perfectly like Aria's Story but it wont let me continue to chapter 2. Does it need something a pc can only do? Help dont know what to do.

I remember when I played this game, waiting for chapter 4. When it came out I finished it in one day and cried like a baby at the end. My favorite RPG at the moment, it's just perfect, the lore, the characters, art style, and many more things. 11/10 gained my heart.


literally make me cry. I love this game 10/10


this is literally the only game where i've cried at the end, i was sobbinggg this game is fucking amazing i adore it 

This is fucking awesome 👍. 10/10, must play

i cried a lot. 10/10

i never felt do much rage and sadness for the same person as I did for diana
just finished chapter 1


an amazing game I totally recommend! it's a roller-coaster of emotions, and you can't help getting attatched to all the characters and immerse yourself in the story. the minigames are really fun, and if you played aria's story (another game I really loved also made by lydia) you'll certaintly see some references, like the main characters in the ending, the guilty-of-murder-colored-skeletons puzzle (I'm not sure if it's a reference itself, but I'm sure the same kind of puzzle is in the other game too), and maybe other things I didn't pay attention to or don't remember. the puzzles are very interesting, and all the characters are written amazingly and I relate to a couple of them. I love this game!


This game was so beautiful, played it with my friend and definitely cried at the end. Selene an Luna are best girls. <3

I loved this game so much! I found Aria's story about a week ago, and since I really enjoyed that one, I couldn't resist playing the other story by the same creator. If you enjoy puzzles, a moving story, and well-rounded characters, this is definitely the game to play.  I'm sure to stick around for any and all future projects. Amazing work!

Hi!! I just finished playing the game for the first time and oh my god, it was such an amazing experience!! This is definitely one of my favorite RPG maker games, you did an amazing job with it

I'm looking foward to the remake! Sending love from Brazil <3

what ıs the name of the song at the end of the game????

here's the link to the original music

thank u so muchh ^^

Downloaded Midnight Train 4.3 [ALL CHAPTERS] [English].zip and it ran perfectly fine, finished the first chapter where they (Spoiler) escape the steampunk building, and arrive at the 2nd tower. Then it just rolls credits, says to be continued, and goes back to the menu. It says the chapters are there in the file?

antes que nada perdon por la respuesta en español, pero bueno, para eso tienes que elegir un nuevo viaje, ahi aparecen todos los capitulos, solo tienes que seleccionar el que te guste

Se olvidó totalmente de eso. ¡Muchas gracias!

Installe les RTP

(1 edit) (+1)(-1)

I can't run the game :(


many games run with the RPGVXAce RTP. All you need is to download it online and install it, so you can have it for other games too

Played this game a long time ago, one of my fav rpg maker games of all time, I love the way you write characters so much! 

If I had money, i'd donate a lot in order to help you make more games, can't wait to see what you'll do in the future

I love this game! Every chapter has made me tear up. The story is really interesting and the character development is good as well. Also, the jumpscares are not extreme but they sure are scary! 

Keep up the awesome work, Lyd1a! Both of your games are a masterpiece <3


I really like the story. Especially chapter 3, the ending made me cry :'(. The art is also good and beautiful. The character development is also good. Overall it's good. I made the gameplay on Youtube, you can watch it if you want.

You check other part in my playlist: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2E7JpkYllFEuR3TBPUReMilJJfDp5Pdx


I just finish the game and I must say OMG it is easily one of the best RPG game I have ever played ;-; Aria's Story was a blast, but Midnight train hits different ;-; the ending is purely wonderful, I'm looking forward to your next game.


Amazing game! Has a lot of content. Thank you Lydia. I didn't know the creator is from Spain, very nice. 

------------------------- Potential Spoilers-------------------------

I might have found a minor bug in the English setting: Spanish text pops up even though I am playing the game in English for only this specific part. This happens after I beat the "who is the real culprit" puzzle.


i just loved it! <3


spoiler warning!!

just like with aria's story, this game had me BAWLING by the end. i played it all the way through and let me say am i relieved for the happy ending, aha. everything about this game was phenomenal: the soundtrack, the script, the graphics, the actual story itself- literally everything. and the message that it brings with it is very heartfelt and unique, not something i've seen from any other game! i love rpg horror games and this is on the same levels as the classics (mad father, the witch's house, ib, etc.). i'm so glad i got to experience this game and i really hope this team continues to develop new games!! <3
