Among the Sleep (PC/Mac - 2013)
Developed by Norwegian small-timers Krillbite Studios, Among the Sleep places you in the footies of a two-year-old child. Your perspective matches your age, as the child’s imagination gives way to sights both wondrous and dangerous. Navigating the toddler in first-person, you’re tasked with using creativity to overcome obstacles planted directly at the precipice between reality and a hazy dream. You can check out a trailer for the game here.
It’s all fascinatingly surreal, especially the way sound design comes into play during the brief preview where a mundane living room is transformed into a foreboding gauntlet of peril. We’re a ways off from seeing the final product – “next year” is the firmest release Krillbite promises – but I’m already interested to see how this mind-bender plays out.
