Among the Sleep hits Kickstarter goal photo



Among the Sleep, Krillbite's exciting horror game played from the perspective of a two-year-old, has reached its Kickstarter goal of $200,000, getting the funding it needs to be finished and polished for a 2013 release. 

Krillbite made the grade with three days to go, and the team is unsurprisingly quite thrilled and celebrating right now. 

I've been a supporter of Among the Sleep since its announcement, and have remained highly confident in its success. I'm glad to see so many others are equally confident, especially at a time where so many game industry members are keen on telling us that horror games don't have an audience anymore. 

All that remains is to intensely look forward to seeing the full product.

Traumatize a two-year-old in Among the Sleep

Many horror games have played with the idea of a helpless protagonist, heightening the tension for a player by reducing their combat abilities and forcing them to survive, rather than fight. Krillbite's Among the Sleep takes...more
