Psychological horror Among the Sleep achieved its $200,000 Kickstarter goal this morning. That means the happy, innocent-looking faces of Krillbite Studio can endeavor to provide us with nightmares when the game hit PC, Mac, Linux, and Oculus Rift in Q4 this year.
While Among the Sleep was already close to its Kickstarter goal, we suspect some of Krillbite’s cheer comes from the validation of doing so after releasing the playable alpha yesterday. That’s still available for free on the game’s Kickstarter page, if you’d like to experience how the game leverages its scares from a two-year-old’s perspective. You can also read Richard’s thoughts on a demo which made him “love a teddy bear within the span of a half-hour.”
Among the Sleep has already cleared its first stretch goal: $200,030 got bought ice creams for each member of the team – which might also explain those happy faces. With three days to go, Krillbite only has two other stretch goals currently listed, with $225K allowing the team to optimize Oculus Rift support, and $230K unlocking in-game commentary.
