A downloadable game for Windows

Goodnight Jemmy is a surreal exploration game made in under 5 months solely by one developer (Jeanine Newsome).  Meet interesting individuals and view strange visuals, all while attempting to save the Silunata and the lands that connect it.

Currently for Windows only, a Mac compatible version will be released in the near future.

PC will get spooked by the download, but don't worry it is safe.

Run time: Approx. 60 minutes.

Warning: Body horror, gore, blood, existential despair, tense/anxious moments, flashing screen

REUPLOADED: Highlighted some legal stuff to keep Jemmy safe with me. (It's a very personal game and it has bits of me in it)

It doesn't work on my PC. It looks like an interesting game, though!

Oh no I'm sorry! Is there some sort of error message or anything like that? I would like to help you if this is the case.

It says; "an error occured while launching Goodnight Jemmy (Error: spawn UNKNOWN)"

I redownloaded the game on my own computer and had the download direct to a file on my desktop so I could find it easily and then ran "game.exe" and I was able to start it up fine. The only thing I can think of is maybe the permissions on your computer may not be allowing the game to run or the files for the game are not all located in the same folder? Your best bet is to try uninstalling the .exe for the game, which will remove all the files for the game on your computer and then try redownloading it and placing the installed game (after you run the install) all in one folder.


This game is amazing! I love how it covers so many areas of mental illness in a way that's not stigmatizing or watered down. I, along with many people I know and care about, deal with depression and anxiety and it felt good to play a game that understood that feeling. I've made a three part LP series about this game and posted the final piece today. Thank you for making this game! I look forward to seeing what you make in the future!


Thank you so much! I'm happy to know that I could share this game and have others understand the message that I was trying to convey and have a good time with it. Also I feel super honored that you did a LP of it! I will share it with everyone I can!

im having some startup issues with your game, whenever i try to run it, it just brings up the installation pop up again.

I'm sorry to hear about that! Let us see if we can't resolve that!

I wanted to see if I could recreate this situation, so I uninstalled, deleted, and re-downloaded the file and followed the installation and was able to start it up just fine. It may be that the .exe you are trying to start up is not the installed game, but the installer itself.

When you first installed the game, there should be a window that comes up after the agreements, and you hit agree, and then it gives you an option to place the game file somewhere on your computer (the "Directory"). That file, wherever you place it, should be the actual game. So you might want to retry downloading it and placing it inside of a folder that you can find, or you can put it on your desktop.

If  this doesn't fix the issue, let me know and I will do my best to help you further.

hello, it's me again. 

Sorry for the late reply. 

Your advice worked, and I must say, I really love your game. 

I can tell how much hard work and feeling went into this, thank you for creating such a memorable piece.

Have a nice day!

Thank you! I am glad you were able to play it. And you have a great day, too!
