Hypnagogue is a text-based Twine mystery/horror game created in March 2013 as a solo project, and can be downloaded via itch.io.


In Hypnagogue, the protagonist awakes to discover that their bedroom has become transmogrified during the night, turning into a colossal labyrinth from which they attempt to escape. Players progress through the game by choosing highlighted phrases that link from one "passage" in the story to another.

The game begins with the player-character waking up in their bed at night, and, in looking at the shadow and light cast on the walls from the street outside.



Hypnagogue was developed using Twine, an open-source interactive-fiction tool for creating hypertext games.
