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'm not a survivor of whatever or whenever, but I do have some valuable information. As someone who has always struggled with sleep a couple weeks ago I pulled my all time record Of an entire week (maybe plus a day or two) without shutting my eyes, only to blink. A few days in I was mistaking shadows for monsters and my cat as a doberman I felt insane and alone and isolated and I felt like nobody in the world understood If anyone wants to ask any questions go ahead.

its weird because i've never experienced anything traumatic (well i have but it's too personal, just not as bad as these guys) and i had a nightmare where something was chasing me and when i woke up, i couldn't move or scream or even open my eyes even though i knew i was awake, but after i started breathing a bit normally i opened my eyes and it was around 4am at that time. no one was home. a bit weird but i got over that night since it happened last year and now it doesn't bother me

I’m an indigo child (not by the definition if you look it up it has to do with spirits and the supernatural) I don’t necessarily think it’s real or care about it now but I used to. The intro brought back long suppressed memories and has started some things again so just wanted to say thanks matpat

This reminds me of one of my nightmares it was very weird at the start but fast forward and I was sitting outside pushing a glue stick and one of them doing well so far so I walked up just a little so I can push it out and then I saw this shadowy figure that came closer and jumped back in my dream I wonder what would have happened if I didn't jump back would I die I don't know

@tayloratennant oh no, it’s a internet scary story, you can actually find full readings of it on NOpost, I’d recommend the ones by MrCreepyPasta, their also published books now that I think of it. In any case they’re more comedic then scary. Good listen.

I was 7 days without sleep in college once, it cost to me an entire day get to sleep again because I developed severe hypnagogic hallucinations, when I was starting falling sleep I begun to hear and extremely loud white noise sound that literaly hurt as something crushing my ears (the pain woke me up) and to see shadow people trying to grab me and inviding my body like a possesion. btw, being in sleep depravation, I saw palpitating walls and sometimes I felt myself weightless and numb, also I smelled clorine scenses that never was there or heared people calling me from far away at the end of the days without sleeping.

Elders said to us when we were young that "to avoid 'BANGUNGOT'. First, you must NOT eat too much before going to sleep. I forgot the reason as to why thou. Second, DON'T take a bath before going to sleep. Also forgot the reason. And Third, rest yourself before going to sleep. Not sleeping first thing after you got home form work. And that's all.

I actually haven’t gotten to sleep until 7AM before. This happened on New Year’s Day (first day of 2021). Around 3AM (I fell asleep around 7AM), I felt like my body was panicking. It felt like my heart was engulfed in a flame so hot that it felt cold again. It felt like my heart was in a cage too small for its own good, as well. I was in a cold sweat and pacing around my room, breathing audibly. This happened before on two nights. On the first night, I was awake until about 6AM. On the second night, I was awake until 5:16AM. The thing all these nights have in common was that I was thinking too much and I was on my iPad the whole time.
