Among the Sleep coming to PS4 with Project Morpheus support

New, 4 comments

Krillbite Studio's first-person survival horror title Among the Sleep is coming to PlayStation 4 and will support Sony's in-development Project Morpheus virtual reality headset, the developer confirmed with Polygon.

Among the Sleep was funded through Kickstarter in May 2013, exceeding its $200,000 goal and pulling in $248,358 from 8,110 backers. The game, initially in development for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, sets players in the body of a two-year-old who is tucked into bed one night and suddenly thrown into a supernatural nightmare. Helped along by his sentient teddy bear, the child must navigate obstacles both in the real world and a strange dream-like environment as he runs and hides from what appear to be paranormal entities.

During the 2014 Game Developers Conference this past March, Krillbite told Polygon that Among the Sleep was being considered for consoles. At this time, the studio is "in dialogues regarding other consoles," but can share no further details on what those might be. The studio is also among the first to integrate compatibility with the recently-unveiled Project Morpheus into their game.

Krillbite's public relations coordinator Adrian Tingstad Husby told Polygon that news on a release date for Among the Sleep is forthcoming.
