A girl's recurring nightmares of being chased by death. Clear your mind and fight back against the darkness!

Wow, over 160,000 views! Thanks so much, Newgrounds!

I added five site medals to say thanks. And one of them is really, really hard. =)

FAQ:
1) the game does have an ending, but it's a bit of a puzzle to solve. hint: unlock all medals and 'fear less'. =)
2) the visual disorientation some people are getting is an optical illusion called the 'waterfall effect'. it's harmless, and should stop if you take a short break. wikipedia.org/wiki/Motion_aftereffect
3) all randomness is structured into groups with delays, so the game is fair when you get at least double jump.
4) the fire/skull area is beatable without taking damage. it might scare you the first time, though. =)
5) I switched over to the newgrounds API after mochi died. Sorry to everyone who had problems playing on april 1st. It wasn't an april fools joke, promise!
6) atpalicis and I are working on a much larger project right now, so stay tuned!

I love this game so much mainly because the game reminds me of my mental problems and then its sad the title song but yet its beautiful and I never forget this because it gives me a sense of hope

This just shows how such a simple mechnic can be made good with such beautiful graphics and storyline.

Really fun game with awesome music. :)

Despite the creepy atmosphere of running away from Death in a nightmare (plus fire and flaming skulls. :p), the game seems really adorable with the girl and the animals, harmful or not. XD

Upgrades are always fun to get, and the achievements are usually challenging without being too hard. :)

I wish there was more backstory on why the heck she's having these crazy nightmares in the first place though, and what exactly it means for her to get stronger and beat them... (Of course, that second part at least is just for the sake of the game, but I'd still like a story to it anyway. XD)

A great, simple game with an amazing soundtrack. This is something I can imagine that would work just fine for iOS or Android.

You have some talent here, take care of it and I'm sure that if you want to be part of the game industry, your name might pop up in the better titles :)

This is everything a flash game should be. Simple yet stylish graphics and mechanics with a reasonable learning curve but a high skill cap. I still go back and play it over a year since I first beat it.
