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!

  • Lmao seriously? I went over 30 days with no sleep as an experiment back in high school. I giggled at everything, but otherwise, nothing happened to me. I go about 8 days on average with no sleep normally. And when I do “sleep”, I’m only out around 2-4 hours.

  • Mat, there is Netflix series called "paranormal", it is in arabic though. Anyways, one of the 6 episodes the protagonist dreams that "incubus" which kills people instead of engaging with them in .. activity , (الجاثوم in arabic) is chasing him. I think this episode would help you theorize. It is similar to one of the monsters in Try To Fall Asleep

  • That lullaby at the start of the video, it made me cry. Not like 'cause its scary, its because my mother (and my sadly passed on grandma) used to sing me that song with diffrent lyrics. Just incase you wanna know the lyrics; Go to sleep now, close your eyes Soon the birds will stop singing All the stars, are shining bright They will be watching you all night All you friends, all your toys *will be waiting for you, to play.*

  • ... so basically sleep paralysis i hate sleep paralysis. one time, i woke up and i couldnt move. i was facing away from my door, laying on my side facing the wall. i heard a sort of mechanical whir, like some kind of mechanical wheelchair. at least that was the thing it reminded me of. it slowly got closer to my bed and i tried to move around to see it. i started panicking and trying harder to turn around. then suddenly i felt like my bed was tilting, like someone was trying to get me out of bed by dumping me on the floor. finally, i was able to break out of it by moving my arm. i didnt sleep again after that

  • As far as i know, bangungut is a tagalog word for nightmare, wherein when your having one you cant move its like sleep paralysis. It's said to be caused by a malicious spirit trying to choke you to death by sitting in your chest wherein you cant breath or just choking you with its hands.

  • Here's a theory the reason the rats died after 30 days without sleep is because the brain stoped working as sleep is where the brain relaxes so when it goes so long without relaxing it simply stops working.

  • The one with the kid not being able to move and then it going away...That's called sleep paralysis. I've had it a few times before and it is TERRIFYING. Your body paralysis during REM so when you dream, you don't thrash around. If you wake up during REM, you can't even open your eyes. But your mind is awake and thinks your eyes are open, so you see your room through hallucinations. You can't breath. You can't move. It feels like someone is sitting on. And then, your body slowly wakes up and you stumble to the bathroom and splash your face with water to wake yourself up. It is scarier than any movie, game or haunted house that I've ever been through.

  • I think a good indie horror game to do a theory on would be Your Turn to Die (yttd). It’d be interesting to see a theory on the last chapter that’s coming out, like on what’s going to happen next, who’s going to die, or even who the mastermind is.
