Welcome to the Among The Sleep Wiki!
A wiki about the new indie-game that is about a child on a quest to save his mother.
What happens with you mix a child's perspective and imagination, with the surreal nature of dreams? Quite a lot, I guess, but we think one of those things is an interesting premise for a horror adventure.
The game is heavily based on atmosphere and exploration, and using the two year old child's perspective. For example you'll be able to see your own body at all times, and you will have to interact with the enviroment to find places to hide from dangers.
There might be threats hiding in every shadow, but there’s no traditional combat. Instead, players will actively have to find places to hide, and avoid confrontation to survive. For example in cupboards and under furniture.They're aiming to include some puzzle and adventure elements as well, but their main focus lies on exploration, atmosphere and horror.They've done a lot of experimenting with environmental interaction, so for instance you’ll be able to push, pull and climb objects to reach places, open and close doors, make a staircase out of drawers, peek around corners, carry and place small objects, and the list goes on.
They have many goals with Among the Sleep, one for instance being their desire to tell a compelling story both through an interesting storyline and through metaphor, relating to what actually evokes this fear and confusion in the child. They aim to include the surrealistic theme of dreams and children's imagination, both as a setting and an active part of the game. While travelling through diverse environments inspired by our dreams and driven by the endless imagination of the child, you will have to search for comfort and safety. Will you find your parents?
