This was a great game! The setting and the immobility made this a great experience for me and was indeed scary :) I played this in my video and all I have to say is this: great work and keep it up! Can't wait to see more from you!

Thank you for the video and the feedback!

This was good, you actually gave me goosebumps sir.

Your game starts at 16:47

Thanks for playing! Glad I could give you a little spook!

I loved the game really well made hoping for a longer one soon  with the same style like this  do enjoy the video and feel free to subscribe


Is this game 32bit? My pc with 64bit needs a repair. 

I'm not sure, but I would assume that it's 64 bit. Maybe you can still play it on the web?

Thanks! I'd love to make a longer game like this one!

Really enjoyed this game! Played it as part of a multi game video! Its the first one!

Thanks so much! Your video was really enjoyable!

Thanks! I am glad you liked the video :) Best of luck! I hope you continue to make great games and I will be looking out for what you come up with next!

was scary. I can't sleep.

Guys it was a blast playing these 3 games!, can't sleep was rather short but at the same time very enjoyable.

Thanks for playing! I loved seeing your reactions to the game! The game was so short because it was made for the Two Minute Horror Jam, so the game had to played in only around two minutes. I hope to make a longer experience like this in the future :)

Great game! The sounds are great and I love how the lights fade realistically even though it's in a minimalist style.  I would just pick on one thing though: the jumpscare wasn't as scary as I would have hoped. The buildup was great, but it finished a bit weaker than it could have. Still, I really enjoyed it! It's the second game in my video if you want to check it out :)

Thank you for the feedback! This is my first horror game, so I definitely struggled trying to make a good jumpscare. I agree that it was pretty weak.

I was scared :)

Awesome! Hope I provided the two minute spook you were looking for!

nice game (starts at 18:40)

Thanks for playing and making the video! You're the first person in a video to notice the shadow on the wall from the lightning in! :D

That was pretty scary, really enjoyed :D

Pros and cons are down below) Check out my video here (the game is the 2d there):


Advantages:

1. The spooks were pretty cool, I especially liked that you cut off the escape routes. Even though the player can not move, that was terrifying.

2. The pacing was cool. I love how the game manipulated the way the player looked so something would happen in the different direction. That is a nice game deisgn)

Disadvantages:

1. Maybe it would be cool to see the monster more, to see it come closer to you. Maybe it would be awesome if there was a spook involving your blanket (like something under it like in the old Grudge).

2. It was really strange that all this stuff happens and the main character just tries to fall asleep again and again. No panic, no second thoughts, no screams. Maybe you can consider explaining the lore a bit more at the start, for example you could use the sleep paralysis concept making the player hide from spooks by closing their eyes or something like that.

Overall:

Enjoyed that a lot! It gave me good bit of spooks so I am happy) Still, I think the whole concept is a bit weird and unexplained that is why I rate the game 4/5 for creativity but 5/5 for gameplay because it was good. The game has so much potential! I would like to see more projects from you and I hope my rating will help you in your jams!

Hope my feedback was useful!

Thank you so much! Your feedback and video were awesome! I want to see what else I can do with this kind of game, definitely a longer game! 

Very similar to Try Not To Fall Asleep. Great game and sound design.

I had never heard of the game before, but looking at it now it does seem like a more polished version of my game. Thanks for the feedback!

interesting game, a bit short, but still very good. do you have any more games or are you planning anything in future? please let me know and keep up with making these games :)

btw if you are interested, here is my video:

I am planning on making more small games for game jams over the summer. If I'm feeling up to it I might make a more polished, longer game. A longer horror game could be really interesting!

yes I would be happy to see longer games :)

I uploaded my LetsPlay in Japanese! It was short but its probably nice size for quick horror. :)
時短にはいいホラーゲームですね!

Thanks for playing! I enjoyed hearing your reaction to my horror game! :D

Here's my take for the game... It was pretty cool, wish it was longer tho!

(+1)

Thanks, I liked the video! This game was a submission to the Two Minute Horror Jam, so my game had to be played in two minutes or less.

Ah, got it. so that's why it's short. Looking forward for ur next game!

The anticapation leading up to the jumpscare was way more terrifying than the actual jumpscare istelf lol

I can agree with that as well. Jumpscares are difficult! As you can see I mostly worked on all of that anticipation.

Every sound in this game is frightful, I can still feel it  . opening door, walking around,knockin' window, sooo creepy.  That's why i really like this game. 


I spent a long time recording and editing my own sound effects, and it seems to have paid off! Thanks for the feedback!
