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. =)

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 remember playing this game when it was first released and loving it... then for YEARS trying to find it back through the Newgrounds search. Searched: reaper, sleeping, girl, ribbon, dream, running, foxes, scythe, scary, coffee... Never found it back... Finally came across it by accident as a 'You might also enjoy...' Game is awesome, but tags are NOT. Bookmarked it.

i think there should be another achievement for not killing any foxes


I really enjoy this simple little game, the music is pleasant, the game is fun, and the art is charming. Can be beaten somewhat quickly with a little effort. A personal favorite.

I love this!
