Why do we dream? How do you know if you're dreaming? What horror does your mind possess? Wake Up is an adventure game that lets you explore dreams with tricky puzzles and horrors unlike anything you've seen before.

The game is inspired by 90s classics such as Resident Evil, Silent Hill and the brilliant TV series Twin Peaks. Those inspirations takes shape in fixed camera angles and tank controls, surreal environments and cryptic storytelling.

This game was made during Castle Game Jam 2018 in Örebro Castle, a location that makes an appearance in the game itself, further twisting the line between fiction and reality.

Great game! 

I enjoyed it  a lot,  here is my gameplay

(1 edit)

wait a second



Well, i played the game, it was spooky, it was good, and i really like that you took pictures in real life and put them in the game as a level. Very cool :ok_hand:

Lol, thanks for playing ;)

I honestly can't praise this game enough. I LOVE IT! I seriously hope you do more with it. I'm releasing my gameplay of it on my Youtube and part 1 (of 4) went live this morning. 

An aesthetically appealing, atmospheric game with a surreal premise - I liked that a lot! The installation of puzzles, the logic of which must first be deciphered, and the abandonment of clumsy cutscare horror underline the overall concept extremely well. <3 In fact, it's a very interesting approach to dreams and nightmares in a ludic way, which I've been very happy to recommend in an article on our blog. For those of you who are a little bit confused with some of the puzzles, I recommend a look at our playthrough video. Excellent work, please keep it up! :)

Best wishes,
Sebastian

Absolutely phenomenal game! The "speed-up" mechanic allowed for a faster way to do things, without giving us a dash, or any way to outrun any baddies, and the puzzles were fun to complete. Monsters were spooky, and the entire game had a cohesive feel to it!


Absolute BLAST to play, and I hope to see more in the future!

Thanks for playing and for all the kind words!

As a big fan of Twin Peaks myself, I had to give this one a look. It's pretty solid for a game jam! The environments were cool and aside from one or two camera angles obscuring a bit, it looked great. I had fun with it so I decided to throw together a quick video. Looking forward to whatever crazy stuff you guys come up with next!

Thanks for playing, love the way you added these Twin Peaks clips! :)

This is inception level gaming right here and it really led me into a loop for a while.

Thanks for playing :)

could you PLSSSS make an update on Cool forts prevail, ive been playing it with my father some times and there are problems like you dont have team m8 or the space pirates are to strong and Stuff you know what i mean like give us TEAM MATES or MORE WEAPONS or 2 DIFFERENT MAPS or THAT THE BOTS ATTACK YOU and not go to their home when you attack them. so plsssssssssssss make an update on that game it could beee soooo gooood PLSSSSS 

It's great to hear that you still play the game! I don't think I currently have time to go back to that game, but I'm working on an upcoming fps game that will have gamemodes similar to Cool Forts Prevail. I sadly don't have too much time to work on games since its only a hobby, but I will surely keep your ideas in mind if i could find the time :)

Can you make splitscreen then for the new game?

Already done :)

Last question (thanks btw) when does the game come out and arent you gonna work on steam later this month or something?

I currenty can't anticipate a release window for the game, but I'd say next year probably (I'm developing two big games simultaneously right now) 

Made a video

Thanks for trying it out! :)

This was very cool. The graphics and backdrops were great and the music and sound were spot on and atmospheric. Not sure I was supposed to go around twice but what the hell. Great game... :)

 

Thanks for making a video about my game! You're actually supposed to die the first time you meet the three monsters, but you're the first person (except me) who I've actually seen managing to evade them. Great skills there!

Gave it a go...

Love that title and thumbnail :)

Not at all what I expected, but I still had some fun with this. Good job. 

Really cool game. I usually don't like dream based games, but this was really good. 

Many thanks for playing! Great video, you really did a nice effort there at the end ;)
