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. =)
Z to jump. X to attack. Aim attacks within red to fight back.

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!


Completed it. Nice visuals, nice sounds... you heard that already many times. What I want to say is game would be better without Inception medal, it's just veeery unrespectful to player's time.
Although end is like reward, it could contain more content in order to feel more like reward. But it's not as important as what I said about Inception medal.

hey, fellow Sequelitis fan! I would have to disagree, I think an infinite runner without some challenging goals is more disrespectful to a player's time. Inception is easier if you buy the fox ears and only try to get it at the start of a level, though, so try that!

I really tried to avoid grindy designs and make it all about the gameplay. But I guess I like my games challenging - the new optional medal Nightmare Game is so much worse. =)

HOLY SHIT THE ART AND ANIMATION. you have no idea how much I'm geeking out over it right now. omf, you had me at the fucking menu screen.

Thanks! I'm sure atpalicis will be glad to hear that. =)

- Perfectly engineered gameplay.
- Music is good but lacks the feeling of suspense and action that the storyline and gameplay gives. It does feel dream-like, though.
- The gameplay becomes a bit repetitive but is counterbalanced with upgrades and the medals-ending system.

I liked it much!! Although I was about to give up wondering at which distance I'd finally see the ending!! ;P

heh, I hope the FAQ helped you out. =)

I'm glad you liked the gameplay! I really should do a postmortem video at some point, explaining some of the techniques I used (like a dead zone where skulls don't spawn, in the top half of the girl's hitbox while on ground).

Bueno es un gran juego que puedo decir lo pase todo conseguĂ­
todas las medallas un gran logro del artista pero en fin solo cabe decir que un final simple como el de este juego puede llegar a gustarte asĂ­ que no hay nada mas que decir

Got 100%. And unlocked the ending. To unlock the ending just get 100% check your medals for clues on how to unlock them and remember it will take several tries till you get to see the games ending ^^.
