Mosaic brings maximum discomfort on PC next month

As much as I might like winter, it's hell for commuting. The buses are crowded, the darkness has sapped the colour from the air. Each day feels like it begins after the journey out and ends before the trip back home. The perfect time, then, for Krillbite Studios to release Mosaic - their eerie corporate follow-up to 2015's Among The Sleep. After a four year…

Among The Action: Krillbite Tease Mosaic In New Trailer

Whereas Among the Sleep explored the terrors of the world through the lens of a child, it seems Krillbite Studio's next┬áventure, Mosaic [official site], aims to tackle themes of adulthood desperation and alienation by way of the 9-5 rat race. I say this with a degree of uncertainty as the Norwegian developers have kept pretty schtum with regards to exactly what their next project entails,…

Ice Ice Baby: Among The Sleep’s Free Prologue DLC

You can hardly step foot in the RPS Treehouse nowadays without crushing a rusk or slipping on a vomity bib. Everywhere you look: babies and their detritus. As the least parental and perhaps most monstrous limb of the RPS Hivemind, it's now my responsibility to handle games about babies, lest a more delicate person burst into tears. So here I am, explaining that Among the…

Dreamtime: Among The Sleep Awakens May 29th

Youngsters enjoy staying up way past their bedtime, as if the world might become somehow more magical when the lights go out. That's why the adults want to keep it to themselves. They're right of course - after 9pm life is a series of bawdy music hall routines, bourbon and romantic riverboat liasons. Occasionally bedtime is a safe time though. Toddler terror simulator Among The…

Where The Riled Things Are: Among The Sleep

Among The Sleep has a great hook. Horror games often require the player to feel defenceless, unable to fight back and barely able to flee. Well, says the man at Krillbite Studios, what could be less capable of defending itself than an infant? A slug, perhaps. A slug in a salt mine. But tiny toddling humans are quite rubbish, particularly when they find themselves trapped…

Waaaah: Toddler Horror Among The Sleep Crawls Into 2014

Among The Sleep - aka, the scary one wot has you playing as an impressively nimble baby - has proven to be quite an intriguing prospect. Between the extreme vulnerability inherent in playing as a squishy crymachine and the wealth of themes (imagination, attachment to parents, etc) it could explore, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how far it toddles. Unfortunately, that won't be happening…

Among The Sleep Wakes Up Screaming For A Kickstarter

Baby-troubling Among The Sleep is the only survival horror I'm interested in. The cute game of controlling a waddling baby through a scary house reminds me of the time when I was two and lost my teddy bear. It was pretty harrowing, but my dad found it about three feet away from where I was sitting. I survived, but the scars run deep. I could…

Among The Sleep Devs To Release The Plan For Free

Krillbite are hard at work on their first-person toddler-horror Among The Sleep, but in order to keep their creative juices flowing, they've also found the time to develop a free, experimental game called The Plan. Details are (intentionally) sparse, all the better to surprise the audience when the game releases on February 10th. The website reckons that "The Plan is an experimental, self-discovery videogame exploring…
