Among the Sleep is a horror game that has a really unique approach to horror. But will you want to play this through ? In Among the Sleep you don't play as an adult but instead as a two year old child. The game begins and its our birthday and we get a teddy bear as a present. But one night you wake up to find out that the teddy bear and your mom is missing so its up to you to find them. So how is Among the sleep ? I'm kinda mixed on this game honestly. The gameplay is smooth and its a blast to play but there are problems that weigh down the experience. First of all the game is just like amnesia. The main character is defenseless and there's nothing you can do about it so you have to hide to get away from monsters. The game also throws in puzzles you need to solve to get to the end. So now for the pros and cons. The game looks amazing. Its just amazing to see a nightmare world through a child's eyes. The story has a great set up and the ending is also really good. Atmosphere is outstanding and its one of the best i have ever seen in a horror game. But now for the cons. The game is incredibly short only an hour to beat. Easy puzzles that don't feel like they should be there. Sometimes frustrating stealth segments. Confusing map layouts and sometimes wonky controls. Overall Among the Sleep is an excellent horror game but it has its fare share of problems. I highly suggest you get this game on a sale and not full priced and don't go in expecting a masterpiece and you should be all good.
Do you know that feeling when you know someone or something is just behind you? That's how I felt playing this game. Psychological horror tells the story of a little boy during his second birthday on which he gets a small teddy bear. His imagination revives a little friend who will be our companion until the end of the game. Immediately after the birthday mom puts a little boy to sleep with his teddy bear. Unfortunately this night it turns out that they are not alone in the house and in addition, the main character's teddy bear has disappeared somewhere. Our goal this night is to find the teddy bear and then your mum, where we can hide from the uninvited guest. I recommend the game to everyone for whom the climate in the game is the most important. Graphics and story are just a nice addition to this great production. Despite the short gameplay, the game drew me enough to play the game in one sitting.
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.
