Among the Sleep, developed by Norwegian developer Krillbite, is an extraordinary first person horror game that tells the story of a two-year old child going on a terrifying trip around the house in order to find its missing mother.

 

A warm welcome

When the game originally released, it was received with great enthusiasm and won multiple game awards, such as the Nordic Game Award for ‘Best Artistic Achievement’ and ‘Spillprisen’ awards for ‘Best Sound’, ‘Best Story’ and ‘Game of the Year’. Reviewers were also excited, Keengamer for example wrote: “The game is intended to keep a constant feeling of fear, anxiety, and helplessness rather than periodic jump scares. It's eerie to play and immersive in every expected way, such as sound and visuals. The gameplay is smooth and the environments are rich, it’s a one of a kind game.”

 

Enhanced Edition with extra content

The Among the Sleep - Enhanced Edition contains the completely new Museum Level, with behind the scenes content and extra footage. It also includes a digital artbook and a digital soundtrack. Moreover, players now get to choose which pajamas their character wears in the game. Finally, a new dialogue has been added and a plethora of improvements were made in terms of visuals, performance and gameplay.

 

Features

  • Enhanced edition with extra content, better performance and updated visuals
  • Put the pieces of the puzzle together to find out what has happened to your mother
  • Unravel a disturbing story filled with tension, symbolism and psychological horror
  • Creep through threatening environments like a twisted forest and a dark house
