You’re stuck in a sleep paralysis. Everything seems real and feels like you’re wide awake, but you can’t move. For every blink you make, the more surreal it becomes. inevitably, you sink into a nightmare, you’re stuck inside a box, and you can’t get out. You need to wake up! UpWakeNing is a challenging jumping platformer. You need to wake up, and to do so you need to climb to the highest point in the nightmare in which you reside in. Be careful though, for every unlucky slip, the less sane you might become.
A high-stake jumping platform game
A game where only you are responsible for the outcome. You are your own enemy and hero. The only way is up and with every successful jump, the higher the tension rises as one mistake can mean a long fall, a true nightmare.
While the two levels are somewhat identical, if you are to beat the first level, you get to enjoy the second level with the ability to double jump!
Journey back in the hellish place that nearly made you insane, and calmly laugh away how you were stuck at a certain place, and blaze through it with the double jump.
Angle, velocity, rotation and gravity is a thing. You will quickly realize this.
Hold to charge and jump
Can you master something as simple as jumping with the right amount of power, let alone account for angles, velocity and the rotation when you jump?
