Wake to Hell is a free game. This means that the source code is available to be studied, modified, and distributed. Most projects look for help with testing, documentation, graphics, etc., as well.

Wake to Hell is a walking simulator about a former surgeon, Lukifer Dredd, coming back to the hospital he feared to finish what was left to be done. It, like the webcomic it is based on, is a commentary on mental health and workplace stress. The game was also made as a way to practice programming philosophies inspired by Drummyfish.

The game provides builds for Windows and Linux, utilizing mainly SDL2 for frontend code, but providing use of Raylib and SAF as well.

Copyright Issue[edit]

Before Alpha Build 4's release, Wake to Hell came bundled with a file called "WTH.S3M", an edited version of Big Jim's Wake to Hell. As of Alpha Build 4, it is no longer bundled as a replacement MIDI was made. The January 10, 2024 "Copyright Exodus"[1] completely purged it and any other possible offending material from the source code and game.
