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!

You really have to question what is even real in the game’s story since you’re supposed to be having hallucinations. That means that the dreams might not be all that real, and I’m sure that the smiley robot box isn’t real

11:08 Well, actually there has been an experiment called 'the russian sleep experiment' where a bunch of german soldiers were captured after world war 2 and were granted freedom if they would do the experiment and 'survive'. They were put in a room and gas was pumped into the room. after a couple of days they started going crazy, going as far as eating their own flesh. They didn't survive. Look it up, it's actually pretty interesting.

dooooood!!! The story about the last one of the surviver literally PERFECTLY described my experience of similarity too it was horrible all the same and all, the body being restricted of movement, the fear, the inability to say out words (when I tired to say something in these events with all my might the only thing I could get out was a quiet word of help) and for me at least the feeling of a massive weight exactly on my chest porbs more on my heart and it beating super fast ish also this happens too when I have these things happen my ears for no reason I just start hearing this slowly getting louder noise of ringing like the kind you'd hear from CSGO flashbang sound effect basically it usually happens before the other stuff from a small noise slowly getting louder, so now if I ever hear it I always try my best to quickly resist it and move and make noise. On top of all that I've noticed that when I manage to escape it all and get back up I usually come out with the side effect of extreme heat generated and lots of sweating on my body.

this has been happening constantly for the past I'd say few weeks straight but now I dunno exactly why maybe it's cause I take a little bit more sleep or something I no longer/haven't had them for awhile now....for now that is before I get em again cause I think I just jinxed myself

I feel like the doctor is related to his work and our guy saw something he shouldn’t have got in an “accident” and the doctor is trying to make it where he doesn’t recover. At least that’s my theory🤔

I die a lot in my dreams, feel the pain and everything, I have felt the fear of gripping onto your last moments of consciousness. My point is I have died a lot, killed in dreams yet I'm still here. As far as sleep deprivation I don't sleep well but I usually get about 4 hours minimum.
If I finally die from a dream it will be from stress I'm sure, heart complications if anything. Yes I'm typing this while still watching the video, just thought I'd share that ^^

Why did I decide to watch a game theory about a horror game based on nightmares at 1:52am? You would think I would want to increase my nightmare paranoia.

This nightmare death is quite popular here in our country but instead of screaming you will hear them mumbling something in their sleep you must wake them up no matter what cuz if you dont they will stay as sleep forever (death)

So, brain damage that can cause hallucinations, immediately thinking of temporal and occipital lobe/visual cortex for the visual and auditory hallucinations, but that's just a quick lazy explanation...
Neurological and Psychology issues apparent, this guy may have nightmares that could form into forgotten memories, create monsters out of blank spots, like who or what hurt him to start this?
it is actually really spot-on about sleeping though, most of the body's rejuvinative actions kick in when asleep, specifically neurological recovery. Now, it could be the Robert Sapolsky video I watched recently, but it is possible to die from a nightmare, stress and cortisol rushing into the body for a threat the body can't tell isn't real...

Okay, 2nd gear. Looking at the gameplay, you monitor a STRESS meter, and stress is a key in this, then the sleep deprivation... There's a pattern, the hallucinations get worse the longer you don't sleep, and this is the pattern... *Subject gets first night terror, refuses to sleep, recurring nightmares strengthen this, then the deprivation kills.*

About the Coffey maker guy. I had a friends who’s brother died in his sleep a few years ago. I just heard about it as he was explaining his absence and I don’t think he wanted to speak more on it witch I understand, his older brother died in such a unorthodox way. He was 20 something I believe? thing is his brother didn’t have any medical condition(that I’m aware of that is)I found it odd at the time, but now...😬
Again I don’t know the details, but this made me think of it. Don’t @ me.
