“A short late night experience meant to soothe the soul.”
“In Tents Sleepover” is a short and endearing experience that uses the player’s innate curiosity to tell the story of a boy named Mike, who just moved into a new home with his family. Mike is struggling to sleep during the first sleepover. In an attempt to get to sleep, the player explores the new house performing menial tasks like turning off the television set, looking at drawings and reading notes, which are presumably written by Mike.
These notes are scattered throughout the house and give insight into the boy’s family as well as his imagination. Overall, the game does a great job of giving the player a strong sense of connection with Mike. I felt like the more notes I read, the more I saw the game through Mike’s eyes instead of my own. >>PLAY
