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!

    One cousin of mine died from a "bangungut" tho. His twin was beside him and was awoken because he was screaming in his sleep, tried to wake him up by slapping him and he kept screaming and won't wake up, eventually he stopped, was taken to the hospital and was dead on arrival. Twin bro died 3 years later due to suicide/depression. I was 5 at the time when the 1st died, so all i heard was hush stories from my parents.

    I guess i'm really sleep deprived cause i do experience the moving walls, fake animals/bugs, and shadow people (only at night) rather often. It's not that i'm not sleeping, which does make these effects more potent and annoying and even adds the auditory hallucinations in for extra flavor, i just don't sleep enough. I'm aware of my bad habit of forcing myself to stay awake for reasons unknown (sometimes reasons known but still not valid) but I don't exactly do anything about it, even tho my parents and doctors and everyone i know say to actually try fixing it. I guess since i can still function day to day normally, it's not a big deal to me
