Sleepi Boi Can't Sleep
It's a rainy night and Sleepi Boi can't
sleep no more.
Help him falling asleep and explore his
house along the way.
This short story game was made with Bitsy (3D) for the Bitsy november game jam. The theme was SLEEPY.
It's my first ever Bitsy game so let me know what you think. :)

this game was so cute and i love the whole camera aspect of this game, id love to see this used as an actual game mechanic used to find clues for puzzles or something like that, i feel like it would be really interesting to consider, overall great game!
i liked it
Super cool! love the visuals and the camera play!
great work! :}
Wow, this game is so cool. Atmosphere and all! Playing at work right now lol
Really cool! Just the right length :)
Loved this! Short and sweet - the art style is super cozy and fits the vibe perfectly!
I've never seen a pixel game where you rotate the screen, I love it :D
This is the first time I've seen Bitsy in a 3d environment and wow. It's such a great experience!
that was such a little yet cool game!
if there is more,i wanna play it right NOW.
please make more, i give all my support in this game and im hoping you will go far Thatsmaik!
Wow, dude! This is really awesome!
(That was before I finished)
That was a beautiful game! Thank you so much for sharing with us! I love the rain and the atmosphere, and the simple art style that is very different and beautiful. Thank you so much!
Absolutely genius! Loved this little game!
This game was really cute!!! The ambience was really charming and calm :3
wow! what a nice little game!
love the use of bitsy3d!
This was cute and rad. Also, it was a really cool 3d application to the format!
Very cute! I love how it feels like a little playable diorama.
this is so coooooool !
This is absolutely adorable.
can you pls explain how did you make the full-screen button?
When you upload your game to itch.io, you get the option to check a checkbox saying: "Fullscreen Button". If your game is already on itch.io, it's under "Edit Game" -> "Fullscreen Button"
I loved the visuals! Also, great book recommandation, but I believe the book is only called "Der Astronaut" in German, it's actual name is "Project Hail Mary" :D
Thanks a lot! Really glad you enjoyed the experience and you even read the book notes haha. You're right! :O That's the correct title, ay have to fix that - thanks for pointing it out. I don't get why they often choose completely different titles for translation.
this game is absolutely beautiful i love it so much !!
Thank you so much! I saw that you started a project with Bitsy3D too, if you need some tipps or advice let me know. :) Happy to support.
this game was so visually beautiful, and very calming and fun to play through. kudos to your pixel art and writing!! I did not know there was a Bitsy 3D, I will have to check it out!
Thank you so much Jake! Your feedback and your donation means a lot to me! I never received money for my games before from a Player. Really, thanks a lot for the support!
Btw, I was very keen to play your Game Glitch Dungeon because it just looks beautiful - unfortunately my setup here is MacOS only atm and I don't have access to Windows for unlucky reasons. This will change in a few weeks and playing your game stays on my ToDoes! I'll let you know when I played it.
Now that I think about it, I think Bitsy 3D could be great for games along the lines of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
THIS IS SICK! I can't believe it was made in Bitsy! But then again you peeps are the most creative. This made my day, this is ART. Can't believe this is your first ever Bitsy game!
Means a lot astrooooo :D thank you!
Come and join the Bitsy fam haha. Its not that hard to get started with Bitsy 3D :)
The perfect game to play just before bed :)
Its awesome that you feel this way - this was totally my intention for the vibe of the game. Thanks for playing and the feedback
wowowow!! so delightful at every turn, makes me want to learn bitsy 3D!!
Thank you! Glad you enjoyed the game. If you need help or have some questions about Bitsy 3D fell free to DM me. :) let me know if you got something going :)
Playing this at 3am was transcendent. Great game :)
Thank you very much! I can imagine, I wanted to give the game a relaxed late night vibe I would enjoy playing when I can't sleep haha.
Such a cute game. Had a good time playing!A very unique art style and I got a kick out of the quirky humor. The hidden "blue screen of death" joke really got me. I feel like this is how I act and talk when I'm sleep deprived.
Thank you for the game!
this is so pretty!!
This was something that blew me away.
wow incredible 3D work! i loved exploring this little building! the colors are fantastic, i like how bright it is inside the house compared to outside; great atmosphere :)
I am really blown away by this game! One of the best bitsis I have ever played.
But I got a little question: how did you have this many colors in bitsy 3D? Did you use this fork? https://aurysystem.github.io/bitsy-forks/bitsy-color-3d/index.html
Thank you! :)
i havent used this fork but it looks really interesting. You can easily add new colors to bitsy by simply adding new rgb values to the palette in the game data. No fork or hack needed. You can assign additional colors to tiles when you add eg. "COL 3" at the of the tile code in the game data. This would assign the fourth color of the palette to the tile since it starts with 0.
Of course! Yes the game was made only with the available Bitsy 3D beta :) The game only uses the basic Bitsy logic if you look at it closely, only thing I haven't seen in other Bitsy games is the use of 3D verticality like the different height parts of the level.
In 3D Bitsy all height layers of an individual room are created as sub rooms that function as those layers. If you connect those subrooms with the basic Bitsy room functions/logic you can let the player teleport along the y-axis within the same room.
I usually start to stack a simple box tile on top of each other within a new main room. Until I can't place another box on top of it. This way Bitsy 3D creates automatically another subroom each time you stack them. Then I delete all the boxes. You end up with an empty room in which all the Y-levels are connected and you can start to create your environment. I hope this made sense. Good luck :)
If you have any further questions or if you need some help feel free to DM me over on Twitter.
As a lover of creative things done with softwares this is reaaaally creative. Ive been hours trying to do things like this so I know the amount of skill and effort involved, keep it up!
It's very cute! I love it.
What. on. earth. is. this? I’ve never seen bitsy in 3d before. It’s amazing! I loved the theme, the palette and the story. Really well executed (though I do not know what the meaning of the control room was… was it a metaphor for the SLEEPY BOI’s brain? 🤔)
Thank you for opening my eyes to the world of Bitsy 3D!
Thanks a lot! :D Glad that you enjoyed my game so much and that I can push the attention for Bitsy 3D a little. If you create something yourself, let me know. :)
Yes my intention was to create a metaphor for Sleepi Boi's brain with the control room and also it's an excuse to twist the path a little the player needs to go haha.
Thanks for playing!
