Do you remember your childhood night terrors?
This remarkable new title is a first person horror adventure, in which you play as a two year old child. After waking up in the middle of the night to mysterious sounds, you start a journey in the dark looking for your mother. The game lets you experience the horror felt by a child when familiar and friendly surroundings are transformed into something sinister. While wandering around in surrealistic environments, you have only your teddy bear as a companion. There might be threats hiding in every shadow, but there’s no traditional combat. Instead, you will actively have to find places to hide and avoid confrontation in order to survive. In Among the Sleep you’re vulnerable, scared, and trying to make sense of the world. Dark things will happen. How will you find comfort?
Among the Sleep will have you experiencing horror from the perspective of a two year old child. You’re small, vulnerable and helpless. But you can also crawl into small places to hide. Seeing your own hands crawling frantically under the couch makes you feel even more fragile. The game is focused on the story, not cheap scares. Merging a child’s perception of reality with their wild imagination, lets you unravel what is actually causing your own fear and confusion. If you happen to have an Oculus Rift handy, you’ll get to immerse yourself even deeper into the nightmare!
Set out on the surreal, yet strangely familiar journey in Among the Sleep, for $17.99 on GOG.com. The 10% off release promo lasts until Thursday, June 1, at 4:00PM GMT.
