A PlatformGame by Creator/{{Cactus}}... so you already know it's gonna be weird. Though it's much [[LighterAndSofter lighter and softer]] [[PlayingAgainstType than his other games, like]] [[VideoGame/Norrland]] or VideoGame/HotlineMiami.

''Psychosomnium'' is a short, quite surreal story, telling the story of Jimmy, or rather, Jimmy's dream and the people who inhabit it, struggling with a mysterious unexplained problem.

Basically, it's your typical cute dream in video game form. It can be downloaded [[http://www.charliesgames.com/cactus/psycho1.zip here]].

!!The game features the following tropes:
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: [[spoiler:Triggered several times by the death of the character you're controlling right now; you then become the character who witnessed that death.]]
* BeautifulVoid
* DreamLand
* EverythingsWorseWithBees: A bee is one of the protagonists.
* FetchQuest: {{Subverted}}. A trio of rabbits demands carrots before they'll let you pass. They then mention, however, that carrots don't exist, and thus you're doomed to failure.
* GainaxEnding: Well, it's a dream, after all.
* [[spoiler:GeniusLoci]]: [[spoiler:The wizard is actually his own castle]], apparently.
* {{Gonk}}: Shirley, for being the only female in the game, looks quite grotesque.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Mitch.
* GraphicsInducedSuperDeformed
* KillerRabbit: Rabbits who [[CollisionDamage kill you by touching]].
* {{Masocore}}: In its "proper" definition, "player death as narrative technique".
* SpeciesSurname: [=McBee=].
* SpikesOfDoom
