This game was made in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 48 compo. The theme was Deeper and Deeper. I spent 33 hours out of the 48 total creating this game.

The game uses the KorGE game framework. A full play-through on reaching and defeating the boss should take 3 minutes if you don't die. This was kept intentionally low for the game jam.

Play it on itch.io.

You are Sally a young girl that just needs to sleep! You, Sally, have terrible nightmares every night that always wake you up. You haven't had a good night of sleep in a very long time and are sick of not getting any rest. You will face your nightmares by allowing yourself to fall deeper and deeper into sleep. Every time you fall deeper into sleep you will face more nightmares.
