  • Does this look complete? Is it too much? Too little?

Professionalism – 10%

    Also has anyone else noticed that both group 1 and group 3 consist of Ian, Aaron, and Tim?

  4. Jacob Naasz says:

    Huh, that’s kind of weird. Also, I’m not sure if we have two Tim’s in the class so I might have made a mistake.

    I’ll check on that tomorrow…

      I’ve discovered we have 2 Chirs’ in this class along with the two Ians and Aarons. I have edited the groups to reflect this change.

      (I see no edit button) This game is loosely based off the experiences of a friend of mine who underwent a series of night terrors after a few days without sleep and many haunting memories. The game features a young man named Raven who blames himself for the loss of his younger sister.

      For those who don’t know, a night terror, is a nightmarish hallucination the victim believes to be real.

    See how far you can get. If you beat 4 your amazing!
    Unzip to get sound as usual.

  6. Steven Foskett says:

    Game is called “Red Eye Shift”. The name comes from the feeling/look of bloodshot/red eyes that you get if you go too long without sleep. Enjoy! Feedback is welcome!

    This will take you to my little Insomnia game. Drag the ball of worms around and make the bricks hit the worm holding the insomniac’s head. Hit the worm three times, and free the poor insomniac to get some sleep.

  8. Brian C. Grant says:

    It’s a little rough, but all the tricky programming is there! Try any & every combination to get to sleep!

    Assignment: Insomnia!
    Platform: Flixel

    Game (.swf – Flash Player 10.1):

    Object – Try to get your Sleep Score to 10!
    Input – Arrow Keys move, Mouse enabled
    (you may have to click the play area to begin)

    Source Code (.as – ActionScript 3.0):

    [If you would like to see the other Class or Main .as files, just let me know! All the
    main programming is in PlayState.]

    • Ian Ward says:

      I liked the concept, and that adding things together sometimes got different results, but I couldn’t figure out how to get to sleep. Is it a certain number of points, or an amount of time? Will a certain combination put the player to sleep when they lay on the bed? Also I was confused as to what the function of the light and the headphones were.

  9. Jacob Naasz says:

    Here’s my game called Red Eyed created using Game Maker.
    It’s a puzzle platformer where you collect pills to try and get to sleep. Be careful though, not everything is as it seems!

    Use the arrow keys to move and jump. Spacebar to reset the level.

    An arcade style game where the goal is to create a cure for insomnia.
