“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

Reviews for Among the Sleep

This is not a toy

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.

Teddy Bear Steals the Show

Among the Sleep is a nice little game about a two-year-old in a pretty dark place. I say 'little' because the game is very short, too short to justify a $15 price tag, and most of the time just feels empty. This is somewhat alleviated by the free Prologue DLC, which offers a very different experience to the rest of the game. The game plays somewhat like the Penumbra series in terms of how the player interacts with the world, yet there is rarely any reason to explore or do anything outside the main path - most drawers and side rooms are just empty. These are the main problems with the game - it just does not feel fleshed out; however, there is a dark and engaging story that is easy to recommend. And not to mention the cute teddy bear that I wish we saw more of throughout the game!

An interesting idea but short and predictable

Among the sleep is a horror game where you play as a two year old, greatly altering your view and ability to interact with the world when compared to most games. You are able to climb up low objects and crawl under things to hide. Your bear talks to you and acts as your source of light while exploring. The game does a good job in presenting what can be a child's nightmare but from the first scene it makes what is really happening very apparent and then goes out of its way to spoil everything in the first two areas of the game. The game also has a few bugs and glitches that can cause you to become stuck in certain areas or on certain objects, forcing you to reset. The length of the game is also very short and while the game has you frequently expecting some kind of monsters that you need to hide from many of the stages have nothing to hide from and can be quickly completed. Most of the areas end up not being very interesting to explore. A good idea that I would have liked to have seen better executed.

Cool Concept, just dont expect to be wowed

I was hoping this would be something great, and it's good,but its short. It has VR support so i recommend playing it on there when Oculus get released. You play from a 2 year old's perspective, with your teddy bear as a guide. Everything you can imagine that a two year old would be scared of will be exaggerated over and over again. Just wait until it goes on sale to check it out.

Pavor Nocturnus

Among the Sleep is an horror adventure game in which you play a two year old boy. As a matter of fact, it's night and you've just woke up and decided to explore your house in search for your missing mother. Among the Sleep has the clever idea to make you feel like you're really a very young kid. You can walk but since you're so young you can't move like this that fast. Crawling is a quicker option but in this state you won't be able to use your precious teddy bear. The bear (who can talk) acts as your guide and only light sources. It's an unusual concept to make you explore from the perspective of a toddler but the game does it nicely. The game can be quite spooky at times. It's filled with things that might come from a child's nightmare. Things that you must hide from in order to survive. However, it's a very short game. Don't expect to spend countless hours in this childhood adventure.
