DON'T WORRY, I'M THE MONSTER

Don't Worry, I'm the Monster is a game inspired by my experiences sleepwalking. It's like a fever dream where the only way to wake up and escape is to fight strange monsters that aren't really there. You can download it for free at itch.io or Game Jolt.

I challenged myself to create a game front to back and release it as a commercial product. I wanted to see if I was capable of doing so while having a day job. DWITM is the result of this challenge. I hope it shows that persistence is the most important part of game development; that even 5-10 minutes a day can add up to something worthwhile over a long period.

The game was built using the impactJS JavaScript game engine and NW.js to package it as a desktop application. Some GIFs I created during development can be found at imgur.com.

The soundtrack was written and recorded by Mark Gavin.
