"I know it sounds funny...

And that it was only a dream...

But still, that night, I felt the universe speak to me.
She held me in her hands, and with a voice as gentle as moonlight, she said..."

 *:・゚✧*:・゚✧

i had another dream about you last night is a short pixel adventure about dreams, crushes, and moving on. 

how do i play?
move around with the arrow keys (swipe on mobile)
advance dialogue with enter or the arrow keys (tap on mobile)
walk into objects to interact with them

TIPS:
many objects will have different effects if you interact with them more than once.
this game has 3 endings.
for the most authentic experience, I recommend playing this game alone in your bedroom very late at night.

who made this?
this game was made using bitsy
music is iced tea for breakfast by in love with a ghost (many thanks to them for letting me use their track!)
art, story, and code by me!

who are you?
hi there! i'm asten, and i'm a robotics student living in california. i started this project one night when i couldn't sleep, and never thought i'd actually finish it. you can hit me up on twitter, tumblr, or come hang out with me on twitch!

I actually did and read this after.
It really felt like the Universe speaking. Everything was perfectly phrased.
Maybe She made this game through you :)

Then again, I guess we all are Her.

I felt feelings again, thank you for the reccomendation

Thank you for making this!! I loved getting to play it :") Though I know it's about unrequited love, it still feels like a love letter to so many other complicated emotions. Maybe it's just a me thing, but knowing what's going on with you emotionally is hard. Trying to properly pinpoint what it is that you're feeling is really, really hard, and so I regularly find myself staying up awake at night as my thoughts ruminate, turning to shows I've watched several times over as a source of comfort. I loved the Wizard of Oz and Howl's Moving Castle inspiration for this piece, and I love how you chose to rewrite them, as it feels all the more special and comforting this way, knowing that there's still comfort to be found in strands left loose by the end. 

Also, I was so confused at how similar the song for this game sounded, but then I checked the credits and it was Ilwag!!!! i love their music, and it fits perfectly for this game, and it's so nice seeing their work used in other pieces too, especially one as awesome as this!!!

wow... this game was so pretty. this hit me kinda hard cause i've been crushing on a girl for years who'll never return my feelings. this game really had such a gorgeous concept and i loved every second of it! the universe might've been my favorite part, it was nice how she ended the nigh with "i love you"

(+1)

I am stuck... I'm not asking for help. But I see no way to get any money, so no bateries, so no make-shift transmiter. so no progression. but it's still a great game.

(+1)

hey ik you said youre not asking for help so ignore this if you want buut maybe check out the vending machine thats along the streets :D

(+1)

I applaud you on the narrative. Very well done. It conveys lots of emotion with simplicity and elegance that I wasn't expecting. This game is a little hidden gem in my book. Keep up the awesome work

AH thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed -w- <3
