Game Review
Now this is something we don't see often. Deep Sleep is on the concept of lucid dreaming, a state in which one is aware that one is dreaming. Deep Sleep is incredibly effective at convincing us we belong to this dream state. In Deep Sleep, you are stuck in a nightmare dream. The player has to escape the nightmare his mind has created. And as he or she explores the dark, mysterious world of sleep, it slowly turns out to be something more than just a nightmare. Something in the depths of your own mind wants to pull you even deeper. Someone will escape this dream for sure. The question is - who is that going to be?

Deep Sleep is a browser-based escape flash game, perhaps had to be the most enjoyable point and click game I've ever played. I played this game last night and it is incredible, it gave me the chills and a very thrilling experience. The atmosphere is a true spookiness and a sense of foreboding throughout the game; I am totally creeped out. Most flash games take horror as "loud noise and something jumping into your face", whereas this was done more as eerie and creepy. The lack of monsters actually got me tensed up because I kept expecting something to happen but it only very rarely did.

Every time I open a door at night, it's hard now not to think there's a creepy 8bit black monster walking towards me. That black monster thing sure got my adrenaline pumping. I am genuinely terrified when the phone whispering "Wake up! You have to wake up!" with no way to turn it off. This is the perfect game for Halloween is right around the corner.

I loved how the ambient music suddenly swelled during each of the scares in the game, and I am surprised that a game with 8-bit graphics could manage to convey a creepiness I honestly didn't expect. I also love the use of 8bit because super awesome graphics really aren't what makes a game great - it's the gameplay and story that shine through without the distractions. I am amazed by how the developer created such a disturbing, unsettling atmosphere, without relying on fancy effects or buckets of gore or anything. The graphics suited the game well, just like an old horror movie.
