When the plot of a video game goes from beginning to end over the course of 24 hours or less.

  • Conker's Bad Fur Day, as its name might suggest.
  • Sonic the Hedgehog games tend to avert this by having the games shuffle between day and night, one exception being the first game, where the first zone is in the morning and the second zone appears to take place during the dawn of the following day.

    Does it specifically have to say it's one day or is it just that there's never any night?

    Kings Quest IV specifically takes place over a 24 hour span of time, although I can't recall the exact reason for it.
