Have You Played… Among the Sleep?

When I first heard about Krillbite's Among the Sleep, I was instantly intrigued. A first-person horror game from the perspective of a two-year-old toddler? Where and when can I play it? You see, I'm not usually very good with horror games. Matthew and I screamed ourselves silly when playing P.T, and I generally get quite stressed out when things are chasing me down dark hallways.…

Hands On: Among The Sleep

During a recent trip to Oslo, I found two members of Krillbite working in the same office space as Red Thread Games. Before sitting down with Dreamfall Chapters, I spent a couple of hours in the company of a teddy bear, sucking my thumb in the dark. Among The Sleep is creepy, as I’d expected, but there are hints of something far darker than night…

Among The Sleep Demo Crawls Among The Living

Babies are the truest scions of terror. They represent the most primal, universally relevant fears we humans can have: responsibility, loss of freedom, uncontrollable fecal matter, etc. Among The Sleep, however, is not a horror game about raising an infant (although, thinking about it, that could be incredible), but rather being one. It teeters onto the scene at a good time, given that small-time survival-horror's…

OK, So Here’s: The Plan

Today I learned that it's really hard being a fly. People are always like, "Man, what I wouldn't have given to be a fly on the wall during that conversation," but they don't know. They can't even begin to fathom the maddening struggles of day-to-day... er, millisecond-to-millisecond fly life. Spider webs, errant gusts of wind, leaves detaching in a gentle dance of death, twisting and…

Why Among The Sleep’s Toddler Lead Isn’t Just For Shock

Among The Sleep's main character is two-years-old. In every culture except dog, that means he's woefully under-prepared to do anything except crawl, cry, and make everything smell horrific by proxy. So then, when the game's Internet-famous trailer threw the teetering tot into a nightmarish gauntlet of hallucinatory horrors, it provoked many a raised eyebrow. And why not? It may sound crass, but recent horror-themed games…

Wild Things Still Roam: Among The Sleep

What contains stealth, scares, a rather unique first-person perspective and surreal dreamscapes colliding with recognisable realities? The answer is Among the Sleep, in development at Krillbite Studio in Norway. It could be the most interesting horror game of next year. Here's why: Among The Sleep invites you into the mind and body of a two year old child. After being put to bed one evening,…
