Try To Fall Asleep
A downloadable game for Windows
John Herrin survived a horrible accident and in the result, he damaged his brain and memory. Only Dr. Rick Norberg and the friendly robot "AB" can help John to recover from his brain damages and restore his broken memory. By falling asleep and rediscovering the past in his dreams, John can restore his memory and remember who caused the unfortunate catastrophe in one of the most secretive laboratories of the "Revivel" company. But due to John's brain damage, falling asleep won't be as easy as it seems at first... John will start to see hallucinations and hear sounds that will only make it harder to fall asleep. Only by dealing with his fears and staying calm, he can successfully fall asleep, otherwise, his overwhelmingly huge stress might cause him a fatal outcome...
- At the bottom left corner of the screen, there's an "Info Panel", which displays John's "Stress Level" and "Sleep Level". Hallucinations, sounds and visions can cause the Stress Level to rise up and if it reaches 100%, John will have a heart attack and the game will be over. To lower the Stress Level, simply open your eyes and/or turn on the light.
- The Sleep Level shows how tired John is and if it reaches 100%, John will fall asleep. Close your eyes and keep them shut to reach 100%.
- If a monster appears, hide under the blanket and wait until it goes away.

Love the demo, can't wait to see the full release of this, keep up the great work ;)
Hey there! Just wanted to say that I LOVED the demo! It's got a great atmosphere and awesome concept, with enough world-building to easily grow into its final build without being forced.
There are some issues here and there, but it's forgivable at this early stage! (However I will say I found a way to cheat the "fall asleep" portion of the demo ;D)
Keep up the good work! I will be keeping an eye out for the final release!
This was both horrifying and super fun! Way too hard to keep the eyes shut for long XD
grate game super creepy was nice to play a horror with a good twist.
I really like this game, but the graphics are a bit too much for my laptop, as is apparent from my videos.
Holy night terrors this was good! I find that the level of difficulty is a tad high (or perhaps I'm doing this all wrong!), but the feel of it and the atmosphere and AB's voice are all amazing! I'm super excited to play more of this in the future (and hopefully beat night 1).
Keep up the awesome work, everyone! =)
Thanks! As the first night is the only night that's available in the beta, it was intentionally made to be harder than it should be, so that more things would happen and we could see if all of them worked. Everything is gonna be more balanced in the full version.
Great fun little horror game. Huge FNAF feel in the beginning but then transitions to something completely different! Definitely recommend this game! Can't wait for the full release!
En verdad muy buen juego
Don't know if I was just super unlucky, if the game was just being super buggy, or if I'm just not good, but even with about half way starting out lead in the first hour, I still wasn't able to get to sleep because it just felt like anything and everything, even just random nothingness was causing my stress to go up. Frequently my stress went up when I turned the lamp on, which shouldn't be happening obviously and even just going up slightly when nothing seemed to be happening. Maybe I'll try it again when that new update that's on the way comes out. Hope you enjoy the video!
There are spooky events that we make your stress go up, just to make the level a bit more interesting and challenging
Original game but gave me a five nights at freddys feal but anyhoo its a good quality game just some problem with the game sensitivity when your dreaming its very slow. Good game :D
This game man...just watch the clip XD
Amazing game. The falling asleep sequence has such a rich atmosphere, unique mechanics and really novel scares. If the demo was only that I'd be impressed.
I can see others have commented on the problems with the chase sequences... I would humbly suggest making these more about quick, calculated decisions, rather than blind luck. Say you already start out running with the monster behind you, and you have to quickly choose paths ahead of you, dodging and avoiding obstacles... maybe even creating obstacles for the monster... though I understand there's a lot more dev time involved in that. At any rate I'd take them out entirely rather than leave them the way they are. Sorry if that seems harsh but I still think it's great overall!
Thanks for the great feedback! We're actually thinking about completely rebuilding the nightmare chasing sequence and we do have a few pretty cool ideas how to enhance the experience. :)
i really cannot do this! either im really bad or... i'm just really bad XD either way this is a really good game! :D
Will this game run on an amd a10 7300, r7 m265 system?
What an amazing horror game! This one really scared me great job! :D
Showing some promise, had a few issues with framerate and a few other things, but for a small dev team it's pretty good. Nothing some more dev time won't fix!
Thanks for the feedback! We're currently adjusting the stress level and how often things will happen in the falling asleep sequence. Also, we'll try to improve the maze nightmare sequence as well. Performance and optimisation is something that we're struggling with, but we do have a few ideas how to better optimise the game, but these ideas will need more time to implement them in the game. The new 0.5 patch will be available tomorrow with all previously mentioned things.
This game almost gave me a heart attack! But I made it to the END!! Check out my video if you need all the locations for the fuses or just wanna watch me make a fool of myself lol
I fell asleep.
Biggest issue was the monster spawn directly in front of me during a chase scene with limited continues, but I enjoyed the experience overall :)
The monsters spawn directly in front of you in the chase sequences. That may need a change, but I appreciate the aesthetic, and that it's not just another FNAF-style ripoff.
Made a video
I really enjoyed this game. Looking forward to the full release!
Absolutely loved this game super scary reminds me of five nights at freddy's a bit. The controls are great and overall the game looks amazing great game.
We're back, we're back! All issues have been resolved and everything is OK. Unfortunately, we weren't able to upload the Linux build of the game because it was bigger than the 750mb upload limit. We did a LOT of compression, but wasn't enough to keep it below 750mb. We did reach out to itch.io to ask for more space, so let's hope that works. Hang in there Linux users! Well, at least the Mac build went through :P
I have a Mac, and when I unpack the rar file, the game it self says:
The application “TTFA_Beta_v04_Mac” can’t be opened.
Can you help?
Sup Amberdrop ,I actually am stuck with a problem that I have occurred is that when I unpack the rar file with any rar opener it always either gets stuck or gets stopped with a error and in one rar opener it particularly gets stopped for me at screenselector.bmp.If you can provide me with any solution I would be really glad cuz I so wanna play this game n it sucks that Im not able to.Thank you so much for reading
We'll double check the .rar file on our end. Maybe try to download the .rar file again? It's possible that it got corrupted while it was being downloaded.
Nope I did it again and same things happened
This was fun! I like how you made the game have different gameplay mechanics, shows skill. Not very optimized though, not sure if that's my PC or the game is trying to do too much all at one time. Overall I really liked it and can't wait to try the other nights when you have the full version released!
This game although in beta is extremely well made. I played this with my friend and I screamed the majority of the time. But in the second part of the game it is quite laggy for some odd reason. Keep it up!
Bed times the Best time... Unless you suffer from violent and scary hallucinations!!
AmberDrop you've created something beautiful here, for an indie game the graphics, controls and general terror of the game is on more beautiful than birth itself.
Wow, I was amazing by the games quality and content I just wished I could've played more, but I think I ran into a bug. I died and restarted but it seemed every time a dude appeared and I went under the blanked I got spooked anyways. Not sure if I was doing something wrong or if it was bugged. Really good concept though.
Try to stay under the blanket until the monster leaves, and get in there as soon as you see him
Absolutely fantastic this is what joy of creations should of been a great fnaf style game
My GOD! This game is an absolute blast! It's terrifying, challenging and the concept is so well put together! I can't wait to play the full game on my channel when it releases! Great job on this one, and keep up the good work!
Thanks for the kind words! This kind of stuff really motivates us to make a pretty good game. :)
Nice horror game! A lot of unique things going on here. It does at first seem to be a fnaf clone but it breaks out of that mold very quickly.
I will be sure to keep an eye out for it in the future and would love to play the full version.
Welp... that was horrifying. truly amazing work!
This was a great horror game! I really enjoyed it a lot, and those jumpscares kept getting me xD
Can't wait to see what this game becomes, and good luck to you :)
Hi there, just got the chance to play your game. I made a video so hopefully that will get the word out a bit for you. Great job! My only feedback is that the "collect 6 fuses" section of the game was a bit tedious, by the time I found them all I wasn't scared anymore. Maybe cut it down to 3 or 4 needed to progress? Could totally just be me though, great job either way!
