    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!

      Anyone has more info on the story at <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="323">5:23</a>? My brother had very similar experience and i would like to know more about it, what could cause it, he believed that it was a demon or something, so our local priest helped him, but he still has similar experiences to this day. I want to know if there is any rational explenation for this

    24. Cleon Plays Games

      This reminds me of my lucid dream I was "sleeping" and I woke up in my lucid dream My little brother was also sleeping until suddenly when I was still trying to sleep he opened the door and walked out of the room I pulled him back to the bedroom and going back to sleep Then a few minutes later I for no apparent reason looks through the key hole I saw Withered Bonnie/Ballonboy's Eyes I shoked in fear and screamed Suddenly Springtrap busted open our bedroom door But then (some freakin god-like power) my dad used something to make him unconciouss we ran to the bathroom because nearly all the animatronics were in our house So we were in the bathroom Mangle's head peep above the bath tub and boom story ended I was very in FNAF and watching alot of it including DanTDM,Markiplier,Game Theory and much more So I got a horrifying lucid dream That's all I gotta say for this comment Yeet

    25. Mariam Guendouz

      did he say "1987"

    26. Mikayla K.

      During my high school years, I would stay awake for 3 days at a time whenever I was under a lot of stress, but I could never manage 4 days; I always fell asleep before that happened. I didn't know hallucinations started at 4 days, but maybe that's why my brain kept me from staying up, for my sanity...


      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="237">3:57</a> im a filipino so i can explain this. bangungot is like a nightmare and sometimes its all about bad spirits it can happen to you if you mess around with someone you should not mess with like a... haunted mirror in a haunted house and it will give you nightmares and maybe every night...but thats just a theory A DREAM THEORY hahahahaha jk

    28. Rabea Innes

      Well, I’m not going to sleep!😟 😂

    29. kayla razon

      ** please make a cooking mama cookstar video

    30. Sean Kineder

      Ever heard of the Russian sleep experiments? An experiment made by the Soviet Union during WW2 where they released a gas that wouldn't let the people sleep. After about 2-3 weeks the victims started going insane and killing each other due to paranoia

    31. ChurchTFGplayz

      What if they have a Lucid dream

    32. Fabri Dimonaco

      As a person with night terrors and who had suffer of sleeping parálisis this game looks amazing. Al thou i saw a documentary in Netflix called explained and there is an episode about lucid dream and how you cant not die in dreams it, how is you jump of a building someone still dies but not you and how there are safe mechanisms. Very very interesting if anyone feels like checking it out. You won’t be disappointed is very interesting 🧐

    33. Steve Hillman

      Please get matpat to see this My mini therory: Hey mat. What i'm about to say is probaly really stupid but this my therory. What if you, john harron and doctor nordbird actually like you know knocked john out then some how when john is recovoring nordbird somehow implants fake memories that feel and look so real that they actually might be his. I got this mini therory when you said something like along the lines of the noid and toster boy might not be what they seem and i just thougt that what if so yeah i mean well you're show is like well therory making but it could be therory creation and how i and others can add on our own therorys so thanks mat for getting our minds full of theroys

    34. Arismendy Escano

      I don't sleep much normally and now I watch this

    35. Pyts Gaming

    36. Christopher Ruby

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="922">15:22</a> Why is matpat incudeing the robot? I mean the docter is the one who programed it the little guy is not part of it

    37. eunbyul kim

      my grandparents escaped the cambodian genocide and my grandmother still has nightmares about it. i share a room and a bed with her and, every few nights, she'd make these cries of fear in her sleep and it genuinely terrifies me because of things like this. i always woke up to hug her, no matter what time of night it is.

    38. Cherry Dragon

      may sound weird. but for me the most sleepless days was 2 days without sleep. and my god i can tell out of personal experiece. things start sometimes to look like you're drunk. like things wobble around, sometimes my sight goes blurry or just straight up seeing slight movements in the corners of my eyes. its weird and i really didnt like that. so uhm... get your sleep people!!!

    39. Franklin Thibault

      Alright but what about this: Maybe the doctor is a hallucination himself. Maybe that's the embodiment of the character telling himself "I just need some sleep"

    45. Graham Miller

      Tip: dont watch this video

    46. Sarah M

      The scariest part of this theory is those poor poor rats that were killed in the name of science. I love my ratties I can’t imagine them not being able to sleep :(

    47. Basil Ren Talley

      ok, I need people to like this so mattpat can see it. Matt, as much as we love your wonderful editing, I though of an amazing idea. You should start a podcast! I like listening to your voice, because of how enthusiastic and calm it is, and I’m sure there’s thousands of people who feel the same way, so why not use that to make a podcast! Again, this is just an idea, you don’t have do it, it’s an idea, no pressure. Basil

    57. Aloidia

      I see some comments talkimg about feeling pain from theor nightmares and the short answer is our brains are dumb and cand be easily tricked. In an episode done by 'Brain Games' a gentleman did an experiment with multiple volunteers. He had them place their right arm on the table behind a mini wall (out if sight out of mind). He then placed a mannequin arm on the table in front of the volunteer, in linement with their right arm, and proceeded to talk to them. When the volunteer wasnt expecting it the experimentor would bash the mannaquin hand with a hammer. Results? Many of the volunteers said they felt the bashing in their hand. Others flinched but felt no pain. It was a simple experiment to show how easily our brains can be tricked into feeling pain that isnt really happened to us.

    63. Samantha Scott

      Is it possible the deaths are an extreme form of the placebo effect? Meaning that the brain is convinced they died in a dream so their bodies shut down as if they died.
