Among the Sleep developer Killbrite Studio wants to terrify more gamers with PS4 and Project Morpheus

Indie studio Killbrite announced today on the PlayStation blog that its survival-horror game Among the Sleep will reach PS4 audiences. The post also stated that Killbrite is "among the first to explore PlayStation's new virtual reality technology Project Morpheus."

PS4 is the first console to carry Among the Sleep, but the game has been expected for Windows, Mac, and Linux for over a year. The game places players in the first-person perspective of a two-year old as they overcome obstacles in a surreal environment. The title offers a unique perspective to the horror genre and "it's definitely a game for an adult audience" according to Ole Andreas Jordet, Managing Director of Krillbite.

Bringing the game to Project Morpheus, Sony's version of virtual reality tech, is a frightening and exciting prospect. Project Morpheus was announced this past March and it wouldn't be surprising to see Sony focus on it heavily during its E3 press conference June 9th.

Killbrite planned to provide Oculus Rift support for Among the Sleep as a stretch goal for its Kickstarter campaign and since reaching that goal has made an alpha version of the game available for the VR technology. PS4, offering their own virtual reality and a healthy environment for indie games, seems like a natural fit for Among the Sleep.

Not every gamer can deal with the frights of horror games, and playing them with a virtual reality headset might be too much for many more. While many horror fans might pick this one up for PS4, would you be brave enough to try it with Project Morpheus?

Backed this game about a year ago. Still waiting for it to come out, they claimed it would be ready 6 months ago. Feeling a bit burned, especially if it's being held back even further for this. It's great that they're porting to PS4 and so on but I'd prefer they kept their original promises first.

Awesome news! I backed this on Kickstarter, and from the PS Blog they're going to try to work out some way for their backers to get it on PS4 with at least a discount :)

I thought that was fantastic. It's also a great show of good faith on behalf of both Killbrite and Sony.

I never heard of this, but as the father of a 2 year old the premise alone sounds like it will scare the crap out of me and my pants.

If my pants had the ability to crap.

They will be very uncomfortable pants indeed.

I'm in Project Morpheus or not.

I thought this was going to be a thread telling me I was going to have the pleasure of downloading another indie game for + (no malice in my comment). Well as I might actually indulge in the Morpheus for novelties sake I might get it to try things out.
