Among the Sleep is a first person horror adventure, in which you play as a two year old child. After waking up in the middle of the night to mysterious sounds, you start a journey in the dark looking for your mother.
The game lets you experience the horror felt by a child when familiar and friendly surroundings are transformed into something sinister. While wandering around in surrealistic environments, you have only your teddy bear as a companion. There might be threats hiding in every shadow, but there’s no traditional combat. Instead, you will actively have to find places to hide and avoid confrontation in order to survive. In Among the Sleep you’re vulnerable, scared, and trying to make sense of the world. Dark things will happen. How will you find comfort?

Probably one of the better modern horror games out there. I would recommend trying out the demo prior to playing to make sure it's your cup of tea. The biggest problem for this game for me is it's way, way too short. It took me two hours to beat, and I took my time with it. Also, there is little to no replay value.
If you like survival horror games, I'd recommend it, just be warned it's very short.

Now here‘s a Kickstarter project that puts the crowd-funded work of many a seasoned developer to shame: A fantastic game, developed on a shoestring budget by a young, dedicated and extremely talented team.
You'll be put in the shoes (well, the romper suit, actually) of a 2 year old toddler who wakes up in the middle of the night to find his teddy bear missing. Once the comfortingread more companion has been tracked down, the two unlikely heroes have to make their way through their nightmarishly distorted home, only to find themselves trapped in surreal dreamscapes, which can only be escaped by unlocking suppressed memories. Soon enough, very real horrors start seeping into this fairy tale world of the subconcious.
„Among the Sleep" truly is a masterpiece of interactive storytelling. With compelling visuals that would do Lewis Carroll proud, accompanied by truly fantastic sound design, Krillbyte have created an eerie work of art both terrific and terrifying. Even though this is a very short game that should not take you more than four hours to finish, I urge you to get this. Gaming experiences this intense and imaginative are hard to come by. Keep an eye out for this talented young studio! With their amazing debut they have proven themselves masters of the medium and one has to wonder what they will accomplish on a less constricting budget.

As the only kickstarter project I have funded, I was very excited for this game, and in a lot of ways i wasn't disappointed.
The game is very atmospheric, the sound design is stellar, the visuals hold up for a game like this and the environments manages to be childish and very creepy at the same time.
If you are a fan of horror games in the same genre as amnesia and outlast, giceread more it a go.
If I have to point out some things that bother me, it would first of all be the length of the game. It doesn't have a lot of replay value, and i finished it in about two hours.
Other than that i felt that the ending was a bit anticlimactic and very abrupt.
Overall though I really enjoyd the game, and I would reccomend any horror fan to try it out.
