Great jump and run had a lot of fun
A little penguin trying to get some shut-eye, after a bit of platforming.
This project is me exploring what I can do with a pure platformer. This is a submission for Narrative Game Jam, where you have 11 days to build a narrative experience. Initially, I thought of a story about a penguin traversing between layers of dreams (via either sleeping, or playing a song on the gramophone which would wake him up from the current dream), but decided to go with this simple story due to time constraint.
I hope you enjoy Sleepless, despite the lack of any interesting narrative.
The font used is Silver, one of my favorite.
All other assets are drawn by me in Aseprite.
Download the version of choice for your platform, extract it, and inside should be the executable.

What happens if I finish the game backwards when I already finished the game? (pass throughout everything but is everything black)
The Start cut seen plays again and you can still move, not sure if this is a glitch but its pretty funny. then I guess you can go back to the bed, but I don't hate My self that much.
I could complete half level on dark mode, I stopped on that jumboards with spikes on ceiling
I was pretty pressed for time, so instead of a scene transition, I slowly turn off all the lights and particle effects. You can still perform all actions as if the lights were on.
cool btw why penguin?
I've been using penguins as pfp for a while, so it was a personal choice. Plus, they're cute.
Awesome music and sound design! Really lovely!
It's got quite a learning curve at first (at least for me), but it was really fun. Thank you 👍
Great game dev i hope it was longer
Thanks. I mistook the Jam's duration to be 14 days, so I was surprised when on day 11 people were saying there's 8 hours left... This map / story is what I put together in that 8 hour rush.
Nice game! I really like the movement of the character and the particle trail!
I couldn't get through the part where the are 3 flamethrowers on top of each other with space between. I just couldn't see the path i'm supposed to go
Thanks for playing the game. I hope it was enjoyable.
For the flamethrowers part, you can actually stand on the flame throwers themselves. So a combination of a diagonal jump to the right, and a diagonal dash upwards to the left will take you up one flamethrower. If your reaction is fast enough, you could also stand on the platform, and perform a jump + dash to get on top of the highest flamethrower.
