“Please Wake Up” is a metafictional memory horror game that will hack your brain. The game uses psychological techniques and illusions to present many horrifying truths about the nature of memory, perception, and reality.
It has simple and accessible, yet engaging, gameplay that will make you fear your own mind. The game also has an extremely experimental narrative that will leave you questioning the nature of your reality.
The game is currently in Open Beta, so please leave any feedback you can provide!
Expect the full game, which has FIVE LEVELS, to take ~2 hours to complete. The game will constantly be getting updates with feedback I get. When you download a new version of the game, your progress will still be saved across the different versions!
Play the demo if you just want a quick taste of the gameplay! It takes on average ~20-30 minutes to complete, although you are not necessarily expected to finish the demo (it’s pretty difficult relative to the game).
THE FULL GAME USES OPTICAL ILLUSIONS THAT CAN HAVE MINOR VISUAL EFFECTS LASTING FOR UP TO 3 MONTHS.
VIEW THE ILLUSIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
THE DEVELOPER IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY NEGATIVE OR DAMAGING EFFECTS THAT CAN OCCUR AS A RESULT OF THIS GAME.
WE RECOMMEND PROVIDING THIS WARNING FOR ANYONE ELSE WHO MAY BE VIEWING.
USE OF THESE ILLUSIONS CAN BE TURNED OFF IN THE SETTINGS.
The below text is if you have any concerns after playing the full game.
If after playing the game you’re worried about your perception of color, the effect should go away after viewing the test image (the title screen) for a few minutes each day for a few days. You can find more information about it here.
If after playing the game you’re questioning your memories, here are the facts. The Monopoly Man indeed never had a monocle and Curious George does not have a tail. These types of shared false memories is sometimes referred to as the Mandela Effect.
If after playing the game you’re interested in the research presented, there’s a “References” page in the Credits that you can see. Most of the science and stories presented are true.
If after playing the game you’re worried that your reality is just a hallucination, I’m afraid I can’t do much to help you there.
