Point-and-click horror adventure Deep Sleep: Labyrinth of the Forsaken is a follow-up to the Flash classics, coming in 2023

From Press Release:

Łódź, Poland, 2 November 2022 – Announced today from publisher Armor Games Studios and developer scriptwelder, veteran creator of the Deep Sleep trilogy and Don’t Escape series, Deep Sleep: Labyrinth of the Forsaken is the thrilling, full-length point-and-click horror adventure follow-up fans have been waiting almost ten years for. Launching in 2023 on PC (further platforms to be announced).

Players follow Amy, a small town vet whose world is engulfed by the dark following the unexplained sudden death of her estranged brother Thomas, and the revelation of an obsession with lucid dreaming he kept secret from the world. As Amy delves into his years of research, her own dreams contort and twist, and she begins to wonder whether Thomas was onto something extraordinary, and maybe, just maybe, he isn’t actually dead.

Deep Sleep: Labyrinth of the Forsaken sees the return of scriptwelder’s signature tension, atmosphere, and horror through classic point-and-click adventure gameplay and stunning pixel art visuals. Explore dream realms both fantastical and nightmarish, overcome challenges and puzzles using smarts and sheer will to shape your surroundings, and fight your fears with turn-based encounters.

Features:

  • Solve puzzles and defeat foes using the ability to shape Amy’s dreams around her

  • Explore nightmarish and otherworldly environments with elements of randomized design

  • Improve and unlock new skills for Amy to help keep her alive and make her stronger

  • Encounter bizarre and dangerous beings who could be friend, foe… or both

  • Multiple endings and secrets to find, if you survive the beings hunting you

  • A brand new soundtrack from composer Christopher Carlone

Amy’s search for her brother begins in 2023. But beware, what lurks beyond the veil of slumber may be best left undisturbed. Stay tuned for more updates on Deep Sleep’s return, and wishlist the game on Steam today: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1868360/Deep_Sleep_Labyrinth_of_the_Forsaken
