ticking. Sophie learns that everyone in the world has fallen asleep due to [[BigBad the Sandman]] putting everyone to sleep; it is up to her to stop him and save everyone.


Added DiffLines:

* BigBad: The [[AntagonistTitle titular]] Sandman is the one who puts everyone in the world into an eternal sleep, forcing Sophie Grundler to stop him. [[spoiler:It later turns out that he is an AntiVillain who is tired from having to stay up to put everyone to sleep, and just wants some sleep himself.]]


* ShoutOut: The entire game has Shout Outs to the lyrics of [[Music/{{Metallica}} Enter the Sandman]] scattered all over:
** In the city, Sophie dreams of war (the soldiers in the mall), dreams of liars (the spirits in the school) and dreams of dragon's fire (the dragon in the office building)
** Lullaby also asks her to take his hand before taking her to the fairy realm.
** One of the bad endings is named "Sleep with one eye open"
** Sophie is reminded to say her prayers before sleeping. [[spoiler: Lullaby takes the form of her mother and reminds her again in the True ending.]]

%%* * AlienLunch: [[spoiler: The food made by the sandman is pretty disgusting by the description: red soup with what appears eyeballs and a metallic scent, large, stripped catterpillars, meat with little white worms crawling on it... and it's poisonous to humans to boot! However, among fairies, the Sandman's cooking is considered a delicacy]].
*
AlphaBitch: Regan.Regan, who spends her time bullying Sophie, as well as coming from an afluent (if disfunctional) family.

Added DiffLines:

* RipVanWinkle: At both good endings of the game [[spoiler: the Sandman awakens and he takes Sophie home before time starts running again. While everything was still the same, it's heavily implied that everyone slept for ''a couple of centuries''.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: During the Good Ending [[spoiler: David tells Shirley that he fell asleep while watching TV and now his neck hurts. She answers [[VideoGame/TheCrookedMan "No wonder your neck looks crooked"]].]]


* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: [[spoiler:The Tooth Fairy]] berates Sophie for voicing her disbelief about their existence, declaring that every time somebody stops believing in [[spoiler:the tooth fairy, a fairy dies]].
