very well put together. the music and art make the game that much deeper

I loved the message in this game. I've had a lot of friends struggle with addiction so this really hit home.

I LOVE IT <3

Awesome job and amazing game!!! Keep up the fantastic work!

We did a quick promo for your game on MGN today since I played when you released it I thought it would be cool to share to more people!!! 

I really love the game and how it has multiple endings.  I also love how you get to choose what happens as well! In other news here's my let's play of the game hopefully you enjoy! 

(Edited 1 time)

This game was good! If you are not sure if you want to play watch my short video below. Multiple endings so you might not get my ending...

whats the games song does anybody know? :D

It's available through this gamejolt https://gamejolt.com/games/iwokeup/282055

Another fantastic game from you, after being super impressed with He Beat Her, I came here expecting great storytelling and gorgeous visuals and was not disappointed.

Every second of this game builds up to such a good ending (I've only seen two of the four so far, but will be playing through again to see the rest), and it's a really well put together piece of art. Keep up the fantastic work, really looking forward to seeing where you go next =)

This game sure does raise this question. Still haven't found all the endings, but I did my best to do so. Loving the art style so much.

This is incredible. I didn't read the description about addiction, and got it from it about my second go through. Your art also just really perfectly made me feel the things that I had to to get this game. I can't wait to see you make more things, you're incredibly talented.

I love the musical instruments in the game. Could I please get the links sent to my email @Danmeacham98@gmail.com

super different

Nice game and gameplay let me know of your different endings.

Hope you enjoy it!

If there's anything I got addicted to while playing this game other than my ONS, 

it'd be your beautiful artwork.

Looking forward to your future releases. o7

Deleting and re-posting the same comment/video for this game to get on top Kawber? Again? Wow. 

And then you remove the comment once again cause you can't take someone calling you out on your shitty practices, wow.

Are you calling out the creator of this game? If so, can you please tell me why because this comment kind of confused me without knowing what happened before.

(+1)(-1)

lol nah. Just the commenter, Kawber.

I apologize for doing this in the comments section of your game page, this clearly isn't the place for this sort of thing but I was beginning to get annoyed with his practices. I have an immense amount of respect for you and what you've created here and I didn't like seeing someone attempt to use your work to their own benefit in such a way. Once again, I'm sorry. 

(+1)

It's fine! I respect you calling it out. I was a bit weirded out by that too.

(+1)

Sorry for the confusion, I was calling out someone by the name of Kawber for deleting his previous post here and re-posting it in a desperate attempt to get more views on his video. He's been doing it on a lot of game pages and I was getting tired of seeing it.

I normally don't care for black and white. Something about it in this just felt right. The atmosphere, the tone,  it all just came together. I enjoyed the dual meaning! Where it could represent what it actually does with addiction to drugs or, just a straight kind of abusive relationship!

Looks great, and the subject matter is explorative and deep.



I especially enjoyed the art style, and undistracting background music.  Thanks for creating this!

I MADE A HORRIBLE MISTAKE | I Woke Up Next to You Again Full Gameplay Walkthrough

played it and i liked it ^^

(Edited 1 time)

Wonderful VN dear Devs :) P.S TRUE ENDING :D

(Edited 1 time)

The way you presented this actually hit really close to home for me, I have a very different style of approaching games when I record, but the way you made this had me questioning my life choices by the end. I'm amazed, really. In my video, I kept calling it "I Woke Up" Because I'm sick and haven't gotten more than a few hours of sleep in the past few nights, so sorry about that!

Hey Zephyo!

Loved the game! The art style was just as amazing as it was in  "He Beat Her" but it was also very different. I loved the noirish feel and the cool glitchy effects. The music was spot-on. I would have to say that the story was a bit more confusing but it was still very interesting. Keep up the great work and I'll definitely keep following all your awesome games!

i've gone through it once and i need to get the rest, it's so amazing! The music makes the atmosphere so much better and the artstyle is awesome, I'd love more games like this!

I have to say that this game was quite powerful. I didn't play it all the way since i've got only 2 endings but they were amazing! And not to mention artstyle which was one of the reasons i've downloaded the game, the music with it was one of the better soundtracks imo. Amazing game overall. 5/5

Loved the Art and Sound design of this game, absolutely stunning for a indie game.

I recognized the art style and knew I just had to play this. 

( ゚ω゚       ) It's great storytelling and the visuals were just fantastic. I'm surprised there was even a male and female selection. It's a small touch, but it's a nice and greatly appreciated option. 

I really enjoyed playing this and the music was quite lovely as well. It really sets up the mood for everything and I can definitely see the whole 'dreamlike' aspect of it. Anyway, great job and wonderful art as always!

^_^ hey malicediary!! haha thank you. i'm glad you appreciate the gender choice, it's what I want in VNs

This is such an interesting way to tell a story of addiction and overcoming it (at least based on the ending I got!) The visuals are breathtaking and the background music is solid.

I liked the choices presented throughout the game, I normally select the option that corresponds with what I'd do or say given a situation and I'm quite satisfied with the way things turned out, but I am curious as to what the other endings hold.

I hope you don't mind, but I recorded a short let's play of the game.

You've done some fantastic work here, this is very much a real game, it tells a story that could happen to anyone and shows just how powerful an addiction can be, truly fantastic work.

thank you for the kind, detailed and well thought-out comment. And great lets play, I totally don't mind.

thanks!!! :D

The art work is just amazing! I know it's about addiction but I couldn't help but trying to make the relationship work with the first girl! I got the addicted ending, leaving ending, and with the 2nd girl ending? Not sure if where is the 4th one. Did I get it?


I'll probably going through this game again after this post. Very nice game!

thank u! it was awesome watching. You didn't get the 4th ending yet but thanks for finding 3 ^_^

This is an interesting game. I've got shivers down my back at a certain part. I am curious on what this game is about. I know this is about a toxic addiction to something, maybe a fantasy than reality. The person didn't know which is which. But it's still an interesting game, the art is good, the glitches/statics when the player is in some complicated situation and the  soundtrack.

Although, it's hard to know if you got the same ending or different ending with some choices. It's simply said The End.

(Edited 1 time)

thanks!! ur curious as to what's causing the addiction? I have something specific in mind but I tried to generalize it 

*Spoilers*


The player. At some route, the player can choose to either to stay with them or leave them. If the player choose to leave them, they soon realized that they are not real. Is the player in some delusional state when they recently move to the new place?

It's such an incredible idea in portraying addiction (or is it another mental distortion?) through Him/Her; with simple but graceful scenes and BGM which carry out the shivering atmosphere of the story. 

thank you ^^ yep it's addiction.

(Edited 1 time)

i love this impactful, real game. would definitely recommend to just about anyone.

thank you :) glad I accomplished what I set out for
