First person horror adventure

In Among the Sleep, players assume the role of a defenseless two-year old toddler who has lost his mommy. With an unusual teddy bear as his only companion, he wanders off through the eerily dark house to find her. What follows is a haunting search through grim and twisted environments, experienced through the eyes of a scared child.

 

SOEDESCO Studios

Krillbite Studio has put its trust into SOEDESCO Studios to port Among the Sleep: Enhanced Edition to Nintendo SwitchTM. SOEDESCO Studios, part of the SOEDESCO Group, kicked off doing the port of Defunct to Xbox One, PS4TM and Nintendo Switch last year.

 

Jon Cato Lorentzen, CEO of Krillbite Studio, is excited for the Switch release, stating: “Ever since the Nintendo Switch was announced we’ve had fans contacting us requesting a port of the game for the Switch. After recently releasing the Enhanced Edition we thought the time was right, and SOEDESCO Studios has been the perfect partner to work with for the port.”

 

Jack Chauthi, Managing Director of SOEDESCO, comments: “Krillbite has always been dedicated to creating impressive, high quality experiences. Bringing their game ‘Among the Sleep’ to the Nintendo Switch with our own in-house studio is something to look forward to and puts us in a strong position for the next stages of growth.”
