It’s been months since I recommended a game by Uri-san. Huh, I better remember to not spoil people when I recommend stories. Anyway…today’s recommendation is the second installment in Uri-san’s Strange Men Series:
It’s a freeware horror-style adventure game made in the WOLF RPG Editor, and it’s the sequel to The Crooked Man. The Sandman isn’t as scary as The Crooked Man, but still, it can be shocking at times.
Now, the game is about a girl named Sophie Grundler, a girl who has been spending a bunch of days with difficulty in sleeping, bullies messing around with her at school, and a father who has been spending less time with her because of his work. As she struggles to endure the chaos, time suddenly stops during midnight…and that’s not the only strange thing that happens…
I’ve cleared the game recently, and freaking nuts, it’s freaking beautiful. Thank you very much for being an inspiration again, Uri-san! I highly recommend this game, especially to people who are having trouble with getting enough sleep.
This game is originally Japanese, but vgperson has made an English translation, too! Here’s a link to the English-trasnlated version of The Sandman: http://vgperson.com/games/sandman.htm
If you decide to play this game (or maybe watch someone else play it; Daveosity, ManlyBadassHero…and I have made Let’s Plays of this game, you know…and by the way, if you want to make an LP video series of this game, please remember that monetized videos of Uri-san’s games, from this game onward, are forbidden. Oh, and did you know that there are also people who have made Let’s Plays of The Crooked Man, too?), then I hope that you have fun! And don’t forget to keep calm while playing it, too! Keeping calm while playing the game can help you in learning the very valuable lessons inside the game, you know!
