“Krillbite's horror game is an impressive feat in video game storytelling. It leaves more of an impact in a distilled 3 to 4 hours than some games with 60-hour campaigns.” - 7.8/10 – Game Informer

His original approach to the game promised to leave us with a magnificent adventure of terror, but the sad reality is that Among the Sleep is not that great video game we expected. It has charm, of course yes, since not every day we have the opportunity to get into the skin of a baby; But the discreet design of its puzzles, the scarcity of authentic situations of tension and the lack of interest aroused by its development of the action make it an undesirable title.
What a scary game! It was all going well at the beginning: I spotted a weird shadow and those coats were a bit scary, but they didn?t do anything. So I thought, okay, it looks like this game will be scary, but there won?t be anything to hurt me. Oh boy, was I wrong. When I had my first encounter with the monster, I almost had a heart attack. I was hiding under the shelves for about half an hour trying to find the courage to continue. I?m such a wuss when it comes to horror games, which is funny because I love horror games. But I faced my fears and succeeded. After that, the monster didn?t scare me anymore and I learned how to use the game sounds to my advantage to know when it was close. The Prologue DLC also gives a nice insight on the story.
I just completed Among the Sleep. The game provides a disturbing couple of hours of gameplay. Definitely worth the buy. Just make sure your therapy is in order. It's a horror game with a 2-year old protaganist, so naturally there's fairly disturbing content and concepts in the game. I felt the designers did an excellent job of portraying the child-like perspective of the protaganist, and the locatons & settings were just theright mixture of creepy & surreal without ever going over the top.
its pretty solid, and the eviroment its really interesting
Call it adventure horror game or call it Amnesia wannabe. Among the Sleep is one of those hide and seek games closer to walking simulators that we'd like to admit. If this is your first experience in the genre you'll like it. If this is your 100th, well, you become tired of the same cliches of the genre. This time, you are a baby, and we all know that babies have an extremely high field of view, because that's what you'll get in this game. Besides that, you'll move pretty slow when you are walking but pretty fast when you are crawling. Other than that, there are no big differences between this and the generic character of any other game of the genre. Among the Sleep becomes an abstract game the moment you start playing it. You know there is something deep in every object you find during your journey, and you kind of feel like you are in a baby's mind, or at least, a tormented baby's mind. The horror's you face are from a child's nightmare, and you'll feel helpless in a hostile world trying to catch you. I won't lie, it sounds good and I was pretty excited to play it when it was released, but I was very disappointed. You will find a good story though.
