"sleeping alone" is a short retro PSX-style indie horror game.


You are a 7-year-old child who finally has his own room. Sleeping alone sounds good, doesn't it? However, things don't go as planned. There is also someone in the house with us.. who came uninvited.

Approximate playing time: 10 - 15 minutes

Looking forward to the sequel

It did a good job with the spooks the game set out to do! gg dev!

Enjoyed it, did keep me wanting to play more of the game its the first one in this video

nice game. really looking foreword to the second one

Enjoyed this game and I will absolutely play the second one ❤️

Played it and it had me creeped out! 10/10 and I can't wait for 2

For a first game, it's very good. I was expecting a jumpscare though. Here's my gameplay of it:

It starts at 00:23

as some ramdom mac user it didn't work when i tried opening it, can you fix it said this: 

The application “sleeping alone (v1.2) MACOS” can’t be opened.

Bro this game is amazing.

Tres cool =]

Good work

el juego me gustó, lastima que fue muy corto, espero con ansias el 2do, saludos.

Not bad for a first game.

I thoroughly enjoyed this game! The ambience was nice and soft, the controls were smooth, however the footsteps of the kid felt like he was limping (could be me). The only complaint I have is the kid's commentary. Get to know your character-- how do you remember yourself as a seven-year-old?  Also, I noticed the blood underneath the shower curtain, but the jump-scare still got me, so that's a good thing! But, DEV, if you want to terrify us for an unexpected jump scare, I suggest hiding those small details for your future games. 

Overall, nice job! Creating a game is already an accomplishment in itself! Keep up the good work! 

Also, be warned if you are a content creator. The music at the beginning is copyrighted thus I had to edit that part out on Youtube Editor and there was no warning on this page or in-game about that. If you are recording gameplay, I recommend turning off the TV at the beginning at fast as you can. 

thanks for comment, I downloaded the song as a no copyright so its weird youtube suddenly claiming it. my ssd broke so I cant swap the song in the game but thank you for letting me know.

I will definitely use your advices in the second game, I hope you will play it on your channel when it will be released :)

I'm glad to be of some assistance! I wish you the best of luck on your next game and I look forward to playing it! 

Short, simple game. Thank you for the experience! The house feels very empty and lonely, even before you find out what's going on with your family... Tagged below at the time I played this.

A short adventure with a super dark story, which I loved lol. Was a struggle to see thanks to my monitor settings but I did it by hell lmao!

Covered in a special 6 game episode of 4 Scary Games #14. Links to the Kick and YouTube vids:


Definitely had a spooky environment, I really enjoyed it! (here is my playthrough if anyone is interested! game starts at 8:59)

i followed you.

i also make horror games, maybe you want to take a look

This game was a lot of fun. Good atmosphere =) I played this in my recent "3 scary games" video. Your game is game #1 in the video.


Good Game!

Very Good Project Bruh!

Great game!

Jesus Christ the ending is deep

The game was only about 5min for me versus the 10-15 stated. It was short but sweet :) Game starts at 08:51

Always hated sleeping by myself when I was a kid..

I liked the build up on your game! Hope the second one is a bit longer and expands on the atmosphere established :)

A bit unpolished but nonetheless a decent short game, sad that there were no jump scares

i think it is just my macbook, but when i try to open it it says that i dont have permission to open it

loved the game, cant wait to see what else you make

I like to say that this is a good first horror game. Keep up the amazing work!
