Baby Horror Among The Sleep Pushes Past Funding Goal

Jim Sterling will be pleased.

Among the Sleep, the horror title featuring you as an infant protagonist, managed to make its $200,000 Kickstarter goal with 3 days left to go. The total at time of writing is $205,844, which means the first stretch goal has been reached: the dev team all get ice cream! Another $20,000 might see this title get Oculus Rift support, but with so little time left on the clock, this baby'll need to get cracking if it wants to make that goal.

Core gameplay is all but finished, and the point of the Kickstarter was to raise enough cash that Krillbite Studio's development team could work on the title full time. The game is played from the perspective of a two year old, who can barely understand or navigate the world around him, as he plunges into a surreal dreamscape. As young as you are, fighting isn't an option, so you'll need to keep one eye on a hiding place lest you be caught by whatever-it-is lumbering across the room over there.

"I stake my foreskin on this game's success," Jim Sterling of Destructoid and the Jimquisition once said. No doubt he'll be eating an ice cream, in - possibly relieved - solidarity with the folks over at Krillbite.
