Carl's Nightmares

by Jurgler - Compo Entry

Carl is a 5 years old boy who has a lot of "terrible" nightmares every night.
You got the task to help him get through the next 20 nights of his life.
Luckily Carls mum helps you out with some tissues to help dealing with the fear.

The game is developed with Visual Studio - Monogame - .Net - C# and i used Paint.net for the graphics. The sound was made with help of the sfxr tool.

This is my first Ludum Dare game and I hope you guys enjoy it at least a little bit. I look forward to everykind of criticism to improve on those things.

I'm really confused playing this game. I don't understand whats happening and why it transitions from different scenes at weird times. Also the night scenes are very dark so i can't see whats going on.

Wow, Carl has some vivid nightmares!

This game has a little bit of everything. The nightmares are actually different game modes in disguise. I thought it was a very clever way to have a not-boring game that fits within the confines of the theme.

The controls are good, and the difficulty is tough but fair.

I really liked the responses the 8-ball had. Also, the graphics fit well together.

I didn't think the game was confusing at all.

All in all, a very solid entry!

The game is interesting for sure haha, poor Carl. I do like the multiple different nightmares he can have but it gets repetitive.

Neat concept! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/T4pyhw3TqqI
