Deep Sleep is a horror-themed third person shooter and my entry for Fragment Jam 2019, a jam where we took an old project we never released and breathed new life into it. Explore a randomly generated nightmarish world and survive for as long as possible. You can play it in your browser here, but I recommend downloading a standalone version for optimal performance.

A World of Sleep was the top-down arcade/horror game I based Deep Sleep on. I made it in Summer 2014 but never released it. There are two versions available: the original, uncut game, and a version that starts you on the nightmare section. Both versions, as far as I know, are Windows exclusives.

Nightmares is a post-mortem of the development of these two games, as well as a reflection of my time spent in the intervening years.
