Creepy and very unusual!


I really enjoyed this game play. I do also have to say that you guys make some of the best horror games that I have ever played. Keep up the great work and also can't wait for a new horror game to come out 

Show post...

Nice one

I've experienced it many times

i personally had sleep paralysis and a anxiety and it is bad. playing this game brought me back to that moment and shared my experience in the video. the game is well made and does a good job at illustrating the experiences. my partner and i really enjoy the game and brought new light to her about sleep paralysis.

If this is what sleep paralysis is actually like I feel really bad for anyone who has it. This was in my 3 scary games! Keep up the good work!

This was an interesting & good idea for a indie horror exp. Looking forward to tryin more from JN Squared!

Loved the creepy atmosphere, great little game thanks.


i peed that mf was scaryy bru

El juego esta Genial por si alguien quiere verlo en ESPAÑOL

I have never experienced sleep paralysis in my life so this game got me questioned myself "this can't happen in real life right?" lol. but the graphics looks good. and there were some scenarios where you did not expect to happen which is good for a horror game like this. 

p.s game starts at 19:57

Nice game

This got me good there’s a lot of jump scares it’s good for a short game and a short vid

best game ever

This was a great scare. Loved playing this one

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!


I screamed so much ,an awesome game :) Saludos


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?


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.

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

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! :)
