Sleepthrough is a strange, surreal and nightmarish point and click adventure in which you play an insomniac who has just started playing a weird Japanese game she came across by chance.
After the protagonist loads up a strange Japanese point and click adventure she discovered, you enter into a surreal adventure that uses a series of beautiful still pictures to portray its story. It’s an intriguing journey you take, with clever transitions between scenes, interesting puzzles and some hidden objects that you’ll have to find to progress.
Sleepthrough’s game-within-a-game setting throws up some interesting questions; what is the purpose of the game? Who made the game? Where did it come from? Is it just a figment of your imagination? The game seems to contain some scenes that relate directly to your character, and the possible source of her insomnia. It could even be a way for her subconscious to work through what’s troubling her, but nothing is spelled out, so it’s widely left up to your interpretation, and certainly warrants a second play through to spot anything you may of missed. A unique, surreal and occasionally sinister adventure well worth losing some sleep over.
