Update 1.1 - Fixed bug with the 3D maze where the player could get stuck and no inputs would work.

Previously only available on SpookyStation, Wishing Sarah is the tiny direct sequel to Dreaming Sarah.

After being in a coma, Sarah finally wakes up to find something odd about the world the lives in. She can't seem to understand what's going on very well, and you must help her traverse this new world - filled with intriguing new characters and events.

This small game will bridge the gap between Dreaming Sarah and the next game that's yet to come, Awakening Sarah.

  • This game includes the original Gameboy ROM file, both in English and Brazilian Portuguese. These work pretty well on emulators and real hardware!

will this game ever be on mac?

Sorry but no - I don't own a mac or an apple developer account. You can still play the web version on a mac using safari I think. 

I made a video on this game.

Thank you!


Sure hope you watched & shared the video.

Very nice game with some interesting details to explore away from the main plot. The art gallery is fun :)

By the way, is there only one ending? I thought that the encounter on the bridge suggests possible alternate ending, but I couldn't activate it.

There's only one ending, but it's a short sequel to Dreaming Sarah and a prequel to the upcoming Awakening Sarah 

Is the game still being made with Construct or did you move on to another engine?

Wishing Sarah was made in GBStudio but all my other games were made in Construct 2. I just used GBStudio for this to try it out, it's pretty cool seeing a game you made running on a GameBoy!

Looks pretty cool! I'll give this a try asap... looking forward to seeing the sequel!

nice game! i really like the concept and the theme, thank you for making this  <3<3<3

joguei até bugar, na porta da direita que é um labirinto. Muito legal o jogo, parabéns =D

Você baixou recentemente? Eu lancei um update que conserta! Obrigado mesmo assim!

joguei no browser mesmo

Em português ou inglês?


Eu tentei consertar aqui se quiser tentar de novo! Valeu mesmo pelo feedback

I enjoyed this game and how unnerving it was in many ways! So good and I look forward to the sequel!

REALLY charming, and I very much enjoyed playing this game all the way through.

I have plenty of experience with games revolving around dreams in some shape or form, so I had an idea what I was getting myself into from the start.

The psuedo-3D part was pretty well done given the limitations you're working with, and I also loved how you used music.

I'm only sad that it's so short. But I had plenty of fun going through it. Can't wait to see more from you soon!

This game is really creepy. I didn't feel like going past Happytown. Well-made, but too creepy for my tastes personally. Even when nothing bad is happening everything feels wrong, especially the music.

This game was so much fun to play :)

Really enjoyable game, the whole time playing I was thinking this game is weird and I really like it

Thank you!

I played Dreaming Sarah years ago on Steam and wasn't even aware it had a sequel, let alone one so cute!  What an awesome find!

I like to think this is a short spin-off, the actual sequel is called Awakening Sarah but I'm still developing it!


I picked this game by pure luck to be the first I would play from the Racial Justice bundle, and I'm glad I did!

So much charm! And even though there was some creepy themes, the game still felt like a warm nostalgia filled hug. Thank you very much for making this.

Thank you so much!!!


I liked it a lot



this came out of nowhere to be one of my favorite games on itch! it has nearly infinite charm and the graphics style is so well done. i'd love to play more like this! excellent polish and perfect execution.

Thank you!


You could provide a gameplay trailer or video to see how the gameplay is in action. It could be just a few seconds.
Thank you.

The art of this game is very beautiful.


Oof, there is a trailer but I forgot to add it. Thanks for the heads up! I've added it to the screenshot list.
