Update #17

Final hours & a short recap

The Final Hours!

We’re live streaming the final hours on this link! Join in, and lets count down together :) We’ll be answering questions, playing some video-games, and Jory Prum, our magnificent dialogue recorder from the States, is even here in Norway joining us!

We’re even closing in on our humungous last Stretch Goal(!), a free DLC developed after release in collaboration with our backers! Can we make it? :D

A recap of the last month

The last 30 days have past by in a delightful blur. It feels like it was only yesterday that we pressed the green button on Kickstarter, not knowing what to expect at all! Since then, a lot has happened:

- First of all, generous people from all over the world have contributed over $244.000 (!) to the remaining production of Among the Sleep! That still blows our minds...

- We just published a Playable Alpha, so everyone can get an impression of what they are supporting. This was on tuesday evening, and it has already been played a total of 25.000 times! The feedback has been truly amazing...

- We posted the game to Greenlight, where it’s currently at 32nd place in the whole world, and still climbing fast!

- We just announced our dialogues with Sony, regarding a possible PS4 release!

- We’ve had tasty Ice Cream, and even reached both Oculus Rift implementation and Commentary Track stretch goals!

- We have established an official Forum, where people are invited to discuss anything Krillbite-related with us! We'll show this forum much love in the time to come.

- We’ve been nominated to the Nordic Indie Sensation Award, with our small creative side-project The Plan.

- And of course, we’ve published tons of news on the project in general, including both fresh screenshots and concept art.

All in all it’s been a magnificent month, incredibly inspiring for the team, and we are more pumped than ever to continue work intensively on finishing our dream project (both metaphorically and literally) Among the Sleep!

Kickstarter video Bloopers

Here is a small video with bloopers from our Kickstarter movie! We had some fun, to say the least...

An immense thanks again, to wonderful AnnleisFilm!

Going forward, you can also follow the development more closely on our Blog, Facebook and Twitter!

Thanks so much for reading, and we'll see you in the live stream!

      @Ari Stenberg Lappland is not actually in Norway, unless you mean the other word for the land inhabited by the Sami people (which is basically the entire north of Norway and northern parts of Sweden, Finland and Russia). Hamar is located in southeastern Norway, so you were probably not really that close to Hamar :p

      @Timothy Geary We got so close to the DLC goal that we're doing it anyway :)

      I've just played the Alpha and, well, I've not played anything so well conceived and enthralling in a long time. Great work, you utterly deserve to succeed if the Alpha is anything to go by and I look forward to the full release.

      Guys, that must be one of the best "pre-funding execution" I have seen to date: frequent and relevent updates to backers, publication of artwork, early Alpha version, discussions with distribution channels, streaming service, etc.

      Let's hope that, contrary to many other game projects, you will CONTINUE THAT WAY AFTER FUNDING and that you will provide updates in here, not only in the forum.

      You guys deserve the success. Congratulations! I'm looking forward to play the finished product.
