This is the video game trailer that the people I follow on Twitter have been buzzing about all day. It’s for Among the Sleep. It’s a horror “experience” played in the first-person perspective. You’re just two years old.
Official description from the people making the game: “In Among the Sleep you take on the role of a young child. You have yet to develop a full sense of reality, making you weak and susceptible to the horrifying creatures inhabiting your nightmares. One particular night, a dramatic event occurs, forcing you to flee from your home and enter a surreal world. Only accompanied by Teddy, you must overcome many hardships to stay alive and find a way home.”
The game is set for a 2013 release on PC and Mac and the Norweigan developers at Krillbrite Studio want to clear a couple things up: “You will not be crawling 100 per cent of the time; this is mostly something you chose to do (to reach places and hide from dangers, etc). And finally, to some of you silly people, it’s not a first-person shooter. There will be no guns, we are untruly sorry.”
