STORY2

John Herrin survived in a horrible accident and in the result, he lost his memory. He doesn't remember what happened and what lead to such a terrible catastrophe. Now, it's up to Dr. Rick Norberg and the friendly robot AB to restore his broken memory. The only way John can restore his memory is by sleeping and rediscovering the past in his dreams, but because of his brain damages, John will start to hear noises and see hallucinations and falling asleep won't be as easy as it seams to be. He'll have to calm himself to fall asleep, otherwise, his overwhelmingly huge stress might give him an heart attack.


HOWTOPLAY2

To check his current state, there is an "Info Panel", which can display John's "Stress level" and "Sleep level". Too many hallucinations and "paranormal activities" can cause John's "Stress level" to raise up and if it reaches 100%, John will get an heart attack and the game will be over. The "Sleep level" can show how much John is sleepy and if it reaches 100%, John will fall asleep. Close your eyes and keep them shut to raise it up. By turning on light, you can lower the stress level quicker and by hiding in the blanket you can make the hallucinations to go away.

"Try To Fall Asleep" ALPHA

News

Hi everyone!

After 7-8 months of ambitious and hard work, we've finally launched the alpha version of our indie horror game "Try To Fall Asleep". It is a work in progress though, and there still might be a few problems, bugs and glitches in the alpha, so if you find any, then please let us know and we'll try to fix them as soon as possible.

The main propose of this build was to show the game's idea and it's potential to an audience, see the reaction of this project and see if people are interested in this game. This release could also help us to get some much needed support and feedback from the community which we could then use to perfect the game.

Here's the alpha! - Indiedb.com

If you have any questions about the alpha, feel free to ask! I'll do my best to answer most of them.

Thank you for reading this article! :)

Hey Szamer!

Thanks for playing our game, sharing your feedback and making a video about it! For the next build, we'll try to fix most of the issues as well as enhance some of the gameplay features with better mechanics and new horror creatures(two of them are in the works!) ;)​

Awesome game, from the looks of it. Is there a way to contact you about getting the alpha a bit earlier? I run a YT channel. Thank you!

Seems to be another fnaf style game to me in the sense that you have to last until 6 AM and you're stuck in the same place the entire game. The story doesn't really seem to make any sense to me, given that there isn't much said besides 'you are an amnesia patient who needs to get their memory back by sleeping.' Also, I believe the addition of "paranormal activities" is just plain random and unappealing to the game because it has nothing to do with the fact that the character has amnesia and that is ultimately what this game is about. (Unless your character just has extremely bad luck.)
I think this game could benefit from a more story driven approach instead of jump scaring the player until the character has a heart attack and dies. You should try and elaborate on WHY he has amnesia and give a little bit of backstory. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your comment! Your advice is very useful.

This project was inspired by fnaf and originally it was meant to be a fan game, but during the development process, we realised that it should be a standalone game. The game has it's own story, which is a HUGE part of the game. It explains why things are happening the way they're happening and why the protagonist is in such a bad condition. At the moment, the story is kept as a secret, because we don't want to spoil the story, and we want that the players discover the story by themselves while playing the game.

One unique thing about the game is that you won't be always in one place in the game. The idea is that you try to fall asleep, and when you do, you kinda "go inside" in a dream were you can walk around and explore.

About the "paranormal activities", which you mentioned. They are just a product of the hallucinations. There are no ghosts or spirits who are causing them, but the hallucinations are making the protagonist to see "paranormal activities" and things moving around.

In a few days, we'll try to update the description (as it's more than 7 months old and it brings a little bit of confusion).

Hope this cleared things up a bit. :)
