Sleepin’ Deeply is a port of Steam’s Suicide Guy: Sleepin’ Deeply. In Sleepin’ Deeply you play as an alcoholic, he drinks super strong booze and gets stuck in his dreams, his way out is to kill himself. So… yeah. It’s a first person puzzle-platformer with six levels in a hub world. Each level is it’s own world that’s inside the hub world which is an empty diner. To get to each world you have to interact with items on various tables to go into the world. After you wake yourself up in one world you can move to the next, and there’s a statue of the drunk you can collect in each level.
As stated every level is different, and that doesn’t just apply to the worlds looking different, but the solutions, even the concepts in each level are completely different. For instance one world is just a Rube Goldberg machine that you have to set off and run a platforming trial a la Mouse Trap, which is an old board game for you kids, but instead of catching yourself, you blow your brains out with a shotgun. Another world is driving around and then doing some platforming to get parts to make your car go faster so you can crash into something to kill yourself. Yet another is raising a living Tamagotchi until old age so it falls on you and kills you.
Controls are basic, there’s a button to interact with things, one to grab things, one to jump, and one to punch shit. That’s really it and it doesn’t need anything else. The graphics are fairly cartoony though I don’t think kids should be playing a game where the object is to kill yourself. It’s not a bad game, however it’s very middling. I don’t really have any negatives for this game.
Overall, the game is okay, nothing to write home about with this one. I, personally, found it amusing, though I have a dark sense of humor. I don’t know if this is going to be up most people’s alley’s simply because of these two reasons: it looks and play’s simple. It plays like a children’s game for the most part, but again, the subject matter isn’t for kids.
