Among the Sleep was released through Steam in May 2014 by Krillbite Studio. It is a first-person survival horror game from the perspective of a sweet and innocent two year old child. The spooky indie game is finally coming to retail on July 15th 2016 in Europe and July 26th 2016 in North America for PC and PS4.
The unique crowdfunded horror game follows a waddling two-year old child (protagonist) who partners up with his teddy bear and goes on a haunting adventure for his Mother. While encountering terrifying dark closets, halls, rooms, and a forest, Among the Sleep does a great job of immersing you into the mind of a child and what darkness could really look and feel like. We discover as the game and story progress, Mom isn’t what we thought she was, a story about mental illness.
“Among the Sleep deserves a great deal of credit for its story.” 8/10 – The Guardian
“Its depiction of a first-person horror told through the eyes and stumbling little legs of a two-year old is as intriguing as anything I’ve seen all year, and reminiscent of a time when games actively sought out new ways to play and new stories to tell.” – Eurogamer
