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!

    I heard that they were *Cambodian refugees* not *Hmong*
    They had survived through Pol Pot’s killing fields during the *Khmer Rouge* and suffered severe PTSD.

  5. Leroy Thor says:

    As a 2nd generation Hmong person in the US, I can almost guarantee that this is true in our culture. My dad says that there is a curse that for the eldest son of the family that will haunt them in their dreams. He also says most of my Male relatives died in their mid-30s. The only reason that he’s still alive today is because he became a Christian.

  11. TNTTurtle 2007 says:

    Or the doctor was never real and ther really are monsters out to get him. OR the docter is one of the monsters trying to get him killed faster. OR the docter caused the accident and is trying to finish him off

    I’m over thinking this

    All so I did not know that Freddy Krueger had such a cool origin – the deaths

  12. Lord iKoniK says:

    Title: Try to fall asleep
    Thumbnail: Dont fall asleep

    Me: *confused screaming*

  13. Mateusz Ponikowski says:

    Hey matpat, on Netflix there’s this film called “the platform” and basically it’s about a prison that has 333 floors and a buffet of food is placed at room 1 and gradually goes down to the last floor. And I was wondering I’d you could calculate if there enough food to feed everyone at the facility.

  14. Joshua Chapman says:

    Me: Oh, you’ve already accomplished that before

  15. Alexa Colon says:

    I think that because John isn’t able to sleep, his sleep deprivation is causing him to hallucinate. Or maybe it is a type of sleep paralysis monster?

  16. GamerKing Josh says:

    When hearing that hallucinations occur when you don’t sleep for longer than 4 days it reminds me of phantoms from minecraft… Are they hallucinations? Next minecraft theory incoming?

  17. Andrea Jasmin says:

    Matpat: “BANG-GUN-GUT”

    Me, a Filipino in the Philippines where bangungut is a well known cause of death to our elderly: *cries* its pronounced bang-ngu-ngut.

    A case of bangungut is actually easy to recognize and avoid tho if theres an outsider who can wake u up as the nightmares happen, as a kid i used to pull my grandfather out of these situations and now the sound of any grunts of pain/fear in the middle of the night can immediately scare me wide awake to run over and wake the person making said sound. its terrifying.

  18. Taylor Adams says:

    Everyone: Why is sleep so important? We know it iss but why?
    Me: …Brain can’t brain. Brain needs to not. Brain will literally break if it runs so long.

  19. Haterno1likeu Gay says:

    So now I’m scared of sleeping I mean this is rare but it’s just that 1% chance that can just end my life which is kinda concerning
