Sleep is Death is a Adventuring game. Adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons: they provide enemy encounters that require tactics and strategy to conquor, and they create a fantasy world in which to explore and adventure.
Sleep is Death can be played in a Cooperative mode. Cooperative Multiplayer games provide an experience that is played symaltaneously by multiple players. Unlike the simple arena competitive multiplayer style games where players try to kill the most enemies, true co-operative games are designed to take a group of players through a campaign experience together. This will involve sections where players have to work together to proceed - either from the sheer difficulty as in Halo 3 on 360 or by the design of levels such as LittleBigPlanet on PS3.

Sleep is Death does away with artificial intelligence and level design by letting one of the players control this as you go. Difficult to explain but endlessly flexible to play, Sleep is Death asks a lot of you , but then creates something genuinely unique.
Sleep is Death is an unusual two-player game - one player sets up and then controls scenarios for a second player to play. As the story rolls, the player and the controller have a limited amount of time to execute their go - movements, actions and dialogue. Having a human, rather than the computer controlling the action makes for a very different experience. It's really more of a collaborative storytelling experience than a traditional video game.
