Really enjoyed the game, and it has such a great art style. The story was interesting with the development of a dependent relationship, as the stages go you become consumed by the other person. I did get confused by the end with the meaning of showing the picture, not sure if there is something metaphorical with the picture being empty or supernatural.

i made this video quite awhile ago but i guess i forgot to upload it. i tried to get all the endings or at least a happy one. loved the game XD

i had to make an account just to comment on this

GAME SPOILERS (i think) + RANT/VENT THING(?)



for some background: for a while, i really liked this guy (for a year almost) and he did this thing where he'd flirt with somebody then move on like not too long after, now in this year, he'd keep leaving me and coming back to me, leaving and coming back, when he was away, my mood would plummet, id stop taking care of myself, ect. ect. now eventually, after six months, i confess to him and he says he likes me back, starts paying attention to me and stuff (we werent ever officially dating but still) i dont like him anymore, im in a happy relationship (my partner treats me way better than him, shes awesome) but basically, in the ending where youre addicted to them, that's pretty much how i felt in this thing i had with him, like i almost accidentally ghosted my life long best friend, i hated seeing people besides him, i started hating traveling, and pretty much what i liked and didnt like revolved around him and so this game made me realize that maybe i was addicted to him 😟

This is the first proper game by angela he that I have played, and I was honestly blown away by it. Nothing about this game was like anything I had ever played before. The haunting music and the beautiful artwork created such an entrancing atmosphere, and the subject matter shook me to my very core. I don't know if addictions to people are like the one in this game, but if they are, they look horrible. Anyway, if you have not played this game, I would definitely recommend that you do. This is a game that will probably stay with me for the rest of my life. No jokes. 

Wait do i have to download it? Sorry im a bit new

yeah why? Is it an issue for you?

Somehow…I made this seem like a dating simulator.

10/10 game tho. 100% 💃

Wow... eso fue profundo 

This was amazing

(1 edit)

I saw like 3 or 4 different endings, but could not find any horror elements, except the light visual glitches and the sad soundtrack. 

[Warning, spoilers ahead.]

Now I have chills writing it because of the thought that the real horror begins when you show the picture of that 'something' you slept with to your friend? My balls are too soft for that, I'm gonna just check some videos below :D

Wow. There's even a double twist.

Maybe, if I was smarter, I wouldn't be expecting something really scary from Angela's game, cause it's the second game I play, where she tells about our inner demons in their common ways of manifestations and nothing more. 

For me, her horror games are good in all of their aspects. I hope, she will continue doing em the same way :)

Dude I didn't understand, If the main character is schizofrenic or  the someone is a kind of killer etc.? 

Am I right to assume that this was somebody else? Seems like a blatant re-upload  https://ragisir.itch.io/iwokeupp

can someone tell me how to play? i downloaded this game but it says im unable to play and need to ask the developer to update it.

One of my fav indie games I can't count how many times I've played it. The art is so gorgeous. 

How do I start the game on Linux? Thanks

I suppose, that your question is not related to the game or the way it was built.

Here's the way I run games on Linux:

1. Extract the game archive to any directory (probably, under your user home directory) using GUI archive/file managers

2. Goto the dir and find out what file is the game's executable. `cd /home/username/games/iwokeup`

3. The simplest way is to try to run the file from a terminal emulator. ` ./I\ woke\ up.x86` (you could press tab for autocompleting filenames)

4. Some files may require permission to be executable (the system will throw error permission denied), to grant so, run `chmod +x filename.sh`. Then goto the 3rd step.

You could also do the same things using your GUI file manager, but the way can do it depends on the specific software and anyways seems less handy to me.

Such a haunting experience, the suffocating feeling, the desperation, a crushing weight that brought tears to my eyes.

I would have never thought of this metaphor and will keep it in mind for when I have to explain addiction to someone.

The moment your friend says that you are the only one in the photo really shows the true nature of drugs, all the comfort they provide, the “happiness”, is an illusion only you can see.

Really a splendid game.

The art just blow my mind, you can see how much effor and love  this game was done, love it.

I left my channel here were i read the game in spanish / Dejo mi canal por aquí por si quieren escuchar la historia del juego en español.

I just tried this game out, I love it!

I saw this game and remembered Markiplier playing it before and played it for myself! The art style is very beautiful and the story branches were really neat too. Its like challenging you on what is real and what is not. A really fun game :D

(-1)

Love this games art style! Love this games music! The perfect "Short but Sweet" game!

umm the screen is pink...is it part of the game

(+1)

i love the concept of addiction represented through a one night stand. it is heartbreaking to let go but you have to move on forward. another great game, 10/10.

This was a really interesting game, it is amazing how you used the glitch aesthetic to say that something is off about the whole ordeal. I love it!

(-1)

Angela He knocks it out of the ballpark again! The fourth game I've played of hers, and she continues to impress! More thoughts in the video.

(-1)

UPDATE! I was told I was missing some endings, so this became a two parter!

(+1)

I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.

Qual o nome original da música do menu? ----> 

(+1)(-1)

(+2)(-3)

ay update ur app

(+1)

very good. make sure you answer the questions as you would in real life. It's well written. There's a narrative path in this game that I couldn't be immersed in because I've never had those experiences, and another path which I could understand completely. Great game!

Gerçekten harika bir oyun. öyle güzeldi ki geride bende çoğu izler bıraktı ayrıca gerçekten karakterler harikaydı..Hala onu düşünüyorum galiba bu oyun hayatımın dönüm noktasına adım atmamı sağlamış olabilir.Gerçekten çok harika ve güzel bir oyun teşekürler..

EVERYTHING you said is true, and NO ONE can deny that

thanks. bunu okuman bile beni sevindirdi. yani nede olsa türkçe yazmıştım.

Yorumuna fazlasıyla katılıyorum.
