I'm a sucker for survival horror games, especially moody ones that trade monsters for atmosphere. While perusing Rock, Paper, Shotgun last night, I came across this little teaser trailer... and now, I've got another game on my wish list:
The game is Among The Sleep, and it's in development at Krillbite Studios, a small studio based out of Norway. The video alone is pretty cool, but the concept behind it sounds surprisingly original—and appealing. Here's the spiel from Krillbite's website:
Among The Sleep invites you into the mind and body of a two year old child. After being put to bed one evening, mysterious things start to happen.
Being played in first person, the game let its players immerse themselves in a child's limitless imagination. This is a perspective we all have a distant familiarity with, but few can clearly remember what it felt like.
In the borderland between dream and reality, surreal creatures and diverse environments will present you with both physical and mental obstacles that challenge your creativity.
Neat. The game is due out on Windows and OS X next year. If you're feeling impatient, you can keep track of development on the official Krillbite blog.
