Based on Piauí, Brazil.
Asleep is a point-and-click horror game set in 90s northeast Brazil. The player takes the place of Ana Lúcia's perspective, a lonely and confused girl, lost and immersed in the chaotic reality of her nightmares.
Without much info and a mind that flirts with insanity, you must join her to unravel the mysteries by collecting clues through inhospitable places, checking her sketchbook, and knowing unique characters. You have only a flashlight to light your path ahead and survive the enemies lurking in the shadows.
The game was born in mid-2018, the main idea is to make a love letter to classic horror games, meanwhile discussing issues like psychological disorders so common nowadays.
The project is based on personal experience, in an attempt to get the public even closer, taking advantage of the Brazilian culture and scenarios, especially the northeastern one, so little explored in games of the genre.
Asleep was successfully crowdfunded (Catarse) in June 2021 to raise funds for the production.
