    Among The Sleep invites you into the mind and body of a two year old child. After being put to bed one evening, mysterious things start to happen.
    Being played in first person, the game lets its players immerse themselves in a child's limitless imagination. This is a perspective we all have a distant familiarity with, but few can clearly remember what it felt like.

    In the borderland between dream and reality, surreal creatures and diverse environments will present you with both physical and mental obstacles that challenge your creativity.

    Among the Sleep executed this flawlessly, and it combines this aspect with a wonderful journey through the dreams and life of a child. I would recommend this game to anyone who’s looking for an experience that will leave you with goosebumps, and a story that will leave you wanting more.

    A charming and captivating psychological horror game, bringing us in the fresh perspective of a little toddler in her scary house at night. Too bad for its short duration: we would have liked for it to last more than two hours.

    Among The Sleep is your run of the mill psychological horror with a unique perspective and a thought provoking story. A relatively short experience at 4-5 hours long, this crowd-funded game is actually something to be admired, both graphically and intellectually (if you read between the lines).

    After waiting more than a year to get my hands on it, I was quite excited to finally play through Among the Sleep. However, that excitement didn't end up paying off. Although it's not a bad game, per se, this is unfortunately a rather slow, predictable, ho-hum and sluggish horror game, which prefers fetch quests over interesting and involved gameplay.

    It tells an excruciatingly sad, very real story about a person who is utterly helpless, and it does so using interesting mechanics and scenarios. The controls, aging graphics and lack of replay value, however, make it a difficult proposition to recommend wholeheartedly, so approach with caution unless you absolutely love similar games.
