Tony Tough and the Night of Roasted Moths is a PC adventure game owned and developed by Nayma Software.

The game's first official release was in December 1997 in Torino during the multimedia event Saloon.bit at Nayma Expo-Stand[1] and then on March 24, 1998 in Firenze during the MediARTech International Exhibition,[2] where the game got attention from main Italian computer magazines and distributors.[3]

In 2011, Tony Tough entered the ScummVM project.[4]

On October 24, 2012, the game was launched again under license from DotEmu, a retro-gaming company based in Paris, France.[5]


Players control the titular Tony Tough, a private detective described as "a gnome-sized, nasal-voiced hypochondriac momma’s boy",[6] guiding him through the game by positioning the cursor over objects and instructing Tony to interact with them. The game shares many traits with titles such as Day of the Tentacle, which it has been compared with by reviewers.[6][7] These include a focus on conversations with strange characters, puzzle solving, and combining and using items found throughout the game. The graphics and animation are cartoon-like.[6] Two modes of play are present; beginner mode has less puzzles and does not feature the two in-game mini-games.
