In Somnio is a creepy and surreal PS1 styled first person horror game that plays out in five short, differently themed nightmares.
There’s very little in the way of an explanation of what exactly is going on in In Somnio, with the player left to figure things out as they make their way through five short nightmarish dream sequences. It only takes a minute or so to play through each one and they all have a different theme – such as the illusion of control, feeling trapped or supernatural horrors.
Taking just over five minutes to play through, In Somnio is a fascinating experience with extremely atmospheric settings that really get under your skin. The five stages may represent different nightmares or they may also represent the different stages of a single nightmare (for instance the first stage could be you entering the nightmare and the end of the fifth stage would certainly be when you woke up). Either way it’s a wonderfully disturbing abstract experience with a fantastic retro aesthetic. Highly recommended.
