Ever wonder what's lurking behind the shadows in Krillbite Studio's first-person toddler horror game, Among the Sleep? It could be demons, ghosts, gremlins or slavering beasts out for fresh meat – or it could be standard 3D development technology and a lot of subtle tweaking. Yeah, it's probably that last one.
All of this intricate environment design sets the tone of Among the Sleep, turning an otherwise normal house into a terrifying maze filled with paranormal vibes and creepy corners. We tried out a demo of Among the Sleep in March and found it horrifying and enlightening – the normal world is huge to a tiny tot.
Among The Sleep invites you into the mind and body of a two year old child. After being put to bed one evening, mysterious things start to happen. Being played in first person, the game let its players immerse themselves in a child's limitless imagination. This is a perspective we all have a distant familiarity with, but few can clearly remember what it felt like. In the borderland between dream and reality, surreal creatures and diverse environments will present you with both physical and mental obstacles that challenge your creativity.
