When young photographer Melanie sees her two stuffed animals come to life and leap through a portal in her wardrobe, she follows them into a magical, dreamlike world. Play as Melanie in a 3D adventure, using your enchanted camera to solve perspective-based puzzles and lead your stuffed animals back home.

Somnus’ soundtrack also doubles as a kind of achievement award for the player. As the game progresses and the player draws nearer to and solves Somnus’ hidden puzzles, the music adapts and changes, bringing new elements in the composition to the forefront.
