Ever felt like you can control the dream that you’re currently in? That’s called lucid dreaming. It’s where you’re aware that you are currently dreaming and you are in complete control of the dream, bending reality as you will it. What happens when it turns out that there’s a dark side to every lucid dream? Well, better find out with Deeper Sleep.
Deeper Sleep is the point and click adventure sequel to the very well received Deep Sleep. It’s a horror game that explains the mysteries of the first game and all about the creatures that lurk in the dream world, the Shadow People. They were the people trying to get you in the first game. If you ever saw things as scary as them, regular people would probably never go back, but our good old scientist, for the sake of science, dared to come back. His curiosity once again got the better of him and has now been pulled back by the Shadow People, this time, as revenge for what you did in the first game. Get ready to run for your life!
The game is played the same way as all of the available point and click adventures on PC. You use your mouse cursor to find anything you can interact with on the screen. When hovering over it, you can press the left mouse button to interact with it, examples are picking up items or opening doors. You can also combine any items you’ve picked up so that you can use it in specific situations that need them. You can do this by hovering at the top left of the screen then clicking on the item you need to use or combine. The cursor will be changed to that item and you can click on the area you’ll use it on in the screen. If combining, while the cursor is the item you need to combine, go to your inventory again and click on the item you’ll be combining with.
Will you be able to escape the dream world a second time and live to let the world know about your research, or will you be taken in by the Shadow People and be stuck in the dream world forever? It’s a race against the clock, and your survival is at stake. Make sure to play with the lights on if you scare easily. Deeper Sleep is a masterpiece that shouldn’t be missed.
