This game was so beautiful and strong; as a brazilian (where we have a president who calls the 21 years of military regime a "revolution", and defends all the violence and censure that occurred in that period), I can only say "thank you". You helped me - even if just for a moment - be less afraid of everything.
A normal person living in a not so normal country. Experience Wake Up and how your day to day actions and choices can change your own world and the world of the people around you. A minimalist narrative game about the awakening of another anonimous fighter againts authoritarianism.
- A game made for the 'ResistJam 2017' Game Jam.

So powerful. I felt goosebumps at the end.
On the last day - sorry, the first day - when there wasn't an alarm on waking up option I was so, so happy.
This is a beautiful, emotional game and truly a master piece. It had such an original design and was very thought provoking. The sounds and particularly the song at the end was very immersive. Good game, very good game.
This game is what we need right now. Thank you for making it <3
I felt too many emotions in like 5 minutes wtf
I kissed her everyday and she still left? smh.
This game is simply beautiful, no words to add.
I'm a shithead for my comment, because I couldn't get it to play when I needed to show it off but I really appreciate this artwork. I come back to it often.
Thank you, very much. OurRevolution
This game is an paramount example of ludonarrative harmony! You didn't just tell the story via the words, but through the game mechanics as well. I've been able to feel the distress of the main protagonist, but also their hope in the end. It's been such a wonderful, strong experience. Thank you very much for it, proudly I wrote a praising article about it and also uploaded a gameplay video as well - but especially I want to state that it's my pleasure to say that we included your game in our GOTY 2017 list. <3 Keep up your great work, you are such skilled game developers and storytellers! :)
Thanks for your kind words and that inclusion as one of your GOTY 2017, that's pure fuel for our team! We are currently working on Effie, a more conventional game for PS4/PC but we really want to work and improve the Wake Up formula in the future. Was a gamejam experiment and player feedback was awesome.
I really think it's some narrative masterpiece, not just for a jam game! I was so immersed by your storytelling, and I can't wait to see with what you'll come up next! <3 Best of luck with "Effne", I hope it'll be a huge success for you all. :)
really cool and cute game!!
This was strangely powerful for such a simplistic style game- I love it, especially that motivational music later on.
This game is amazing because it conveys a message with only words. You did an amazing job Inverge. You got me choked up at the end. :) Can't wait to see what you do next!
Really good game, you don't need great graphics to do something powerful.
Well done guys !
I lowkey cried once the powerful music kicked in
loved the game! simple but powerful.
An amazing game would love to see this become a better and more full game with more endings and options keep up the great work!!
We are pretty happy with the game and a lot of people seems interested in the idea. Maybe one of our future projects is new game with this kind of gameplay.
Excuse me, is there an ending when you don't rebel or do you have to rebel eventually?
Our original idea was a game with multiple endings depending of your choices (rebel ending, don't rebel ending, neutral ending), but sadly with only 48h of development we choose to work only with the rebel ending for the game jam theme. Maybe in a future version.
Really liked this. Kind of like a mix between A Dark Room and Papers Please.
very well done! I felt like into 1984. Good job!
the best short game experience I've ever played, congratulations!
Thanks for all your kind comments :D
An emotional and amazing experience. love it.
