A downloadable sleep paralysis for Windows and macOS

Ever been awake and not be able to move?

Ever seen something in the dark but it's not really there?

Ever felt the dangers of the night and be at the mercy of your imagination?

This is a first-person horror game made to let you experience the feeling of sleep paralysis and lucid dreaming. You wake up in bed and unable to move. The only thing you can do is watch as things unfold before you. Your only hope is to turn on the lights to make everything go away.

Truly awesome game about one of the creepiest things a person can experience. Definitely a must play.

This is one of those concepts where GOLD can be struck! After looking at the release dates of ALL the games you guys published, it seems you started developing games at the beginning of the year, maybe spending 1-2 months on a game, or less. I'd suggest spending 3-4 months on a game, and see what you both come up with. Go more in-depth and focus on the little details of things.

Great work!

guys... MY BEAR IS AFTER MEEE!

Interesting concept!  Check out my review!

Okay so, I actually can relate to this game. I explain about one of my sleep paralysis experiences at the end of my video. I truly never wish this upon no one. The feeling of not being able to do anything... Maddening. 


LOVED the game!!! <3 (Even though it was short, lol.)

I've suffered from chronic sleep paralysis (and other parasomnias) for most my life and this game was chillingly accurate!

good game did a 3 n 1

This game is really effective at times, though a few of the effects aren’t as scary as they could’ve been. Still, the concept is great, a little different, and there are some genuinely terrifying moments to be had. 

Thank you for playing and for the review! We're glad you liked our concept. :)

I tried to download the one for windows on 3 different browsers. They all failed. Please fix this I really want to play the game.

What kind of issues did you encounter?

HOLY S#%t

Thank you for the video! :)

No problem ! this was a really fun game

I truly loved playing this game, I was generally pretty scared during some parts. One question, can anyone tell me what the title screen music is, I've been trying to find that for a while.

Thank you for playing our game! We're glad you enjoyed it.

The title screen music is called "Living in the Dark". You can find it at this website: http://thedarkpiano.com/creepy-piano-music :)

Played your game in an indie romp. The creatures were pretty entertaining haha. Hope you enjoy

Your game starts at 4:25

Really interesting and fun game with the element of truth in it. Feel free to check out my gameplay of the game

We're glad you enjoyed it. Thank you! We recently released a new horror game called "Ripped/Apart" if you're interested in a new experience. ;)

yea ill check it out :D

Sadly the game is unplayable only after 3 minutes of playing.
My camera gets stuck after trying to turn on the lights and after that the camera is locked to the left. I can somewhat move it and try to get the normal angle but once I reach normal FOV again it just skips my camera back at where it's locked..
Looked good so far but It's unplayable so i'd give it a 2-star..

After reinstalling it completely everything went fine. Not sure why it happened. 
I had CHILLS ALL OVER MY BODY for the whole game long, it was amazing ! 

We're glad you were able to experience the game fully after reinstalling it. Thank you for playing our game! :)

Great game! It really had the right vibe. Also the element of surprise is used very well. Especially when that shadowy demon figure jumped directly at my face, that most certainly surprised me. Well done!

Thank you! We're very glad you enjoyed the game's atmosphere and that some elements caught you by surprise! :D

Nice and short, gets the point across; f*ck sleep paralysis. I feel like this can be a full length game with levels and all. I enjoyed it, sorry to anyone who has to deal with this stuff irl.

Hi I was late to playing this game on its release. But I still played it and it was amazing. I hope you like this commentary I made (thanks dev.)

Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed the experience. :)

Nice idea, but it would be better if the monsters were hidden.

Thank you for playing and for the feedback! :)

This was pretty good.

Thank you! :)

A REALLY fun experience. For what it is, it did a good job of giving me the spooky scares. Check this game out for yourself, the video does not do it justice.

Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed the experience. :)

The overexaggeration of the jumpscares really kills the atmosphere.

Thank you for playing and for the feedback. :)

Gave me a good scare! I hope I don't suffer from sleep paralysis haha. Feel free to check out my video! (:

Thank you for the video! :)

Amazing game! I think it has a lot of potential!!! Watch my playthrough of it if you are stuck or just want to watch an entertaining video!
