do you have rom support like .nes emulation?

No, this game was written in JavaScript, so it would not be possible to run on an emulator. (You could run the soundtrack in an emulator with an NSF player if you wanted, though!)

stuck on level 1 screen on windows and browser

hey, happy to try to help with this. can you explain in more detail what stuck means?

the game doesn't move past the level 1 screen, music keeps playing. tried pressing all the buttons on keyboard and controller. window was in focus

when you say the level 1 screen, do you mean the title screen that says level 1 or level 1 itself? if it's the level itself, are the animations playing? (there should be sparkling stars, characters bouncing a little with idle animations, and a character talking to you explaining the controls.)

which browser are you using, and what version?

Is this really MAC only (unless you want to play via website) or am I missing something?

Yes, that's correct. I don't have a PC to build the game on for that platform. The experience should be pretty much the same either way, though. The website version supports fullscreen, gamepad, etc.

There are multiple solutions for MACOS users to run Windows.
A Windows build is really necessary, Windows is the preferred platform of most users.

Feel free to build it for Windows. The game is open source. https://github.com/okaybenji/goodnight

The controls are a little cluky and the game can at times require quite a lot of precision. And gets a little frustrating at times. But overall the game is well made and has very good animation and presentation. Not to big a fan of the music personally, mainly because the samples hurt my ears, but others may have diffrent opinions.

Way too hard, way too soon. First screen is so super easy. Then second screen is basically impossible. How do I jump up to the chain? Difficulty should ramp gradually.

You need to go to the left side of the screen to go to the pool on the right. Then, you go on those platforms to get to the chains.

This is really cool. The art sound design and animation all come together perfectly.

Nice to see a 2D approach inspired by the same cart I chose :)
