Game Theory: Death by NIGHTMARE! (Try To Fall Asleep)

Get yourself some NEW Theory Wear!! ►
Try To Fall Asleep is an indie horror game that has taken my Theorist brain by storm. Since playing it, I HAD to do a theory. The story revolves around our player character, a man tormented by hallucinations while awake AND asleep. We have to try to fall asleep for our own good, or so our Doctor says. I am going to piece together all of the puzzle pieces of our time awake and dreaming to figure out what is going on at the CENTER of this awesome horror game. Let's go!

My brother had very similar experience and i would like to know more about it, what could cause it, he believed that it was a demon or something, so our local priest helped him, but he still has similar experiences to this day. I want to know if there is any rational explenation for this

  • During my high school years, I would stay awake for 3 days at a time whenever I was under a lot of stress, but I could never manage 4 days; I always fell asleep before that happened. I didn't know hallucinations started at 4 days, but maybe that's why my brain kept me from staying up, for my sanity...

  • Ever heard of the Russian sleep experiments? An experiment made by the Soviet Union during WW2 where they released a gas that wouldn't let the people sleep. After about 2-3 weeks the victims started going insane and killing each other due to paranoia

  • As a person with night terrors and who had suffer of sleeping parálisis this game looks amazing. Al thou i saw a documentary in Netflix called explained and there is an episode about lucid dream and how you cant not die in dreams it, how is you jump of a building someone still dies but not you and how there are safe mechanisms. Very very interesting if anyone feels like checking it out. You won’t be disappointed is very interesting 🧐

  • my grandparents escaped the cambodian genocide and my grandmother still has nightmares about it. i share a room and a bed with her and, every few nights, she'd make these cries of fear in her sleep and it genuinely terrifies me because of things like this. i always woke up to hug her, no matter what time of night it is.

  • may sound weird. but for me the most sleepless days was 2 days without sleep. and my god i can tell out of personal experiece. things start sometimes to look like you're drunk. like things wobble around, sometimes my sight goes blurry or just straight up seeing slight movements in the corners of my eyes. its weird and i really didnt like that. so uhm... get your sleep people!!!

  • Alright but what about this: Maybe the doctor is a hallucination himself. Maybe that's the embodiment of the character telling himself "I just need some sleep"

  • ok, I need people to like this so mattpat can see it. Matt, as much as we love your wonderful editing, I though of an amazing idea. You should start a podcast! I like listening to your voice, because of how enthusiastic and calm it is, and I’m sure there’s thousands of people who feel the same way, so why not use that to make a podcast! Again, this is just an idea, you don’t have do it, it’s an idea, no pressure. Basil

  • I see some comments talkimg about feeling pain from theor nightmares and the short answer is our brains are dumb and cand be easily tricked. In an episode done by 'Brain Games' a gentleman did an experiment with multiple volunteers. He had them place their right arm on the table behind a mini wall (out if sight out of mind). He then placed a mannequin arm on the table in front of the volunteer, in linement with their right arm, and proceeded to talk to them. When the volunteer wasnt expecting it the experimentor would bash the mannaquin hand with a hammer. Results? Many of the volunteers said they felt the bashing in their hand. Others flinched but felt no pain. It was a simple experiment to show how easily our brains can be tricked into feeling pain that isnt really happened to us.
