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!

  • The brain needs time to rest for the conscious functions to work well , if it dose not rest it will need to shut down by dying or just blacking out

  • Getting the idea that the doctor uses his own methodology of "curing" the protagonist, this gives me the idea that the doctor himself might be one of the culprits that gave the protagonist trauma, and uses his "trusty" assistant to help him suffer more until he dies of sleep deprivation. Just a theoretical idea i had after watching this video where before the end the doctor only recommends the player to sleep in order to recover

  • It's crazy how real this stuff is. I've always delt woth insomnia, panic attacks, and anxiety. At one point in my later teens I decided to try and see how long I could stay awake. I went 7 days. Day 3 I started seeing glimpses of this monkey watching me from a far. He never came super close but he was always there. Then day 4 I went to a rock show to help stay awake and the music sounded distorted to me and it almost seemed like there were whispers under the tone of the music and they made me feel really off. Day 5 I was atba friends and they fell asleep and I laid there in the dark and it sounded like things were constantly tip toeing around me and though I couldn't see I felt that many things were watching me and stalking around me. Day 6 was really odd. A lot of things in my vision tunneled as if it was far away and I had an overwhelming feeling that I was constantly lost despite knowing where I was. Day 7 really sucked as everything from the previous days culminated and the panic was so intense and I heard what sounded like armies marching constantly and that monkey was always atleast 5 feet away hiding but watching, sounds were warped, things didn't appear as they should, and my mind really didn't know what was and wasn't real at times. Truly trippy and terrifying. I don't reccomend it and I would never do that experiment again. I didn't feel right for weeks afterwards.

  • I think the Dr. works for or with the company your character worked at. Just telling you to get some rest without treating you medically might lead to your death. Which would mean whatever happened resulting in your injuries, might remain unknown.
