Krillbite Studio's upcoming first-person horror game starring a toddler, Among the Sleep, has been announced for PS4.
Spooky first-person toddler game Among the Sleep is now shooting for an "early spring 2014" release on PC, Mac and Linux according to developer Krillbite Studios.

Update: Among the Sleep has shot past its $200K Kickstarter goal with a a current tally of $212,033.
Among the Sleep, the first-person horror game starring a two-year-old, has arisen on Kickstarter, where it's already met roughly a quarter of its $200,000 funding goal in only a day.
Among the Sleep developer Krillbite Studio has released its free side project, The Plan, which the studio described as "a free atmospheric videogame, exploring issues of death and meaning."
If you've not heard of Among The Sleep, the unusually named brainchild of a group of Norwegian post grads, you're probably not alone. But after nearly half a million views, this startling gameplay demo has the indie scene buzzing. Its depiction of a first-person horror told through the eyes and stumbling little legs of a two-year old is as intriguing as anything I've seen all year, and reminiscent of a time when games actively sought out new ways to play and new stories to tell.
Adrian Tingstad Husby, the remarkably passionate and articulate in-house PR man (although spokesperson would be a better title) for Among The Sleep's developers, Krillbite, explains where the idea for such an unusual character and concept came from.
"We were all studying various aspects of experience production and interactive media at the College University of Hedmark, Norway, when we decided to start collaborating on a bigger project. So Among the Sleep actually started out as the bachelor thesis of most of the people currently in the studio. Then fast forward a year, to about the time we graduated last summer and applied for funding at the Norwegian Film Institute. To our delight we got our application approved"
Forthcoming indie horror game Among the Sleep is attempting to set itself apart from the competition by placing you in the shoes of a two-year-old.
