Game Theory: Death by NIGHTMARE! (Try To Fall Asleep)

What is it?

The 2020 YouTube video Game Theory: Death By NIGHTMARE! (Try To Fall Asleep) by the YouTube channel The Game Theorists.

What is it about?

This is how The Game Theorists describes this video:

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!

My Thoughts

I never heard of this video game before but this video was interesting, it is rare and good to see a video involving sleep and hallucinations and dreams et cetera, and I learned a few things and was reminded of a few things that I learned back in college.

The end,

Interesting concepts; but the one thing that the video failed to mention is that we can actually control the environment within our dreams.
When I think of Freddy Krueger, I think that a formable defense can be mounted if his intended victim have the mindset that they can control their dreams, like add to it, take away from it and create settings. They can even create characters to kill Freddy…
With all the medication, even sedating could put an insomniac to sleep..

Hello True George,

Yep, I noticed that too, and I agree.

It is not surprising though because many people do not even know about lucid dreaming and even some who do have never even tried to control their dreams, and so I am not surprised that it was not mentioned since they were trying to focus on a certain theory (they should use hypothesis instead) and they probably know that most people would not consider that; but who knows.

It is a shame, I have mentioned lucid dreaming et cetera to people at work and most of them had never heard of it before, and the few who did had not tried to control their dreams as far as I can remember; and so many people are missing out on this possibility.

Not only that but so far I may be the only person at my job to have experienced sleep paralysis, most of my coworkers almost never remember their dreams, and the few who do usually do not share their dreams or care about them.

Thank you for commenting,
