Among the Sleep releases in exactly one week! (trailer inside)


Great news, dear backers, Among the Sleep is basically ready, and will be released for PC, Mac and Linux on May 29th, 2014!

But isn’t that’s only a week away?

Yes, yes it is! And during the short wait, please enjoy the freshly squeezed announcement trailer below!

A lot is going through our minds now. There’s both lot’s of stress and joy in finally being able to share a project to the world. It’s also been a long ride for us, so it’s not without melancholy that we are now gazing upon the end. But it is also with excitement and pride! We cannot wait to share the game with the world, and in turn having the world tell us its thoughts. And feelings.

But we still have one week to go, and we want to spend every single minute to make the game as good as we can. There’s always a small detail that can be improved, a bug that can be found and quashed, and we will not rest until our tired fingers push the great and powerful Release Button in one week!

We hope more than anything, that when next thursday arrives, you will enjoy the fruits of our labours, and that we live up to the enormous faith you’ve all put on us.

Speak soon!
- The Krillbite Team

      Whoah, Among the Sleep or Star Citizen DFM. Tough choices!

      Congrats on getting to release!

      I'll know what I'll do with my extra long weekend (4 days) which starts on the 29th :-) it will be the first game I'll play with native Oculus Rift support built in :-D

      Gratulerer og lykke til med lanseringa! Gleder meg som en unge. ;-)

    9. Jenny Edwards on May 24, 2014

      Excellent news to start my weekend off! I'm so excited, can't wait!!

      @Poisoned Venom / Stephen "Stoibs" D - We are working with Humble and you will receive an email through their system on release. Through that link you will be able to get both the game through Steam and a direct download link :)

    11. ThomasN on May 23, 2014

      So, a year or something ago you said "We're aiming for both Steam and GOG amongst others".
      I'll have the GOG one please.

    12. Stian on May 23, 2014

      Woot! Going on holiday for a week so I'll miss the launch but once I'm back the evenings will be spent in the (virtual) diapers of a toddler!

    13. Ubivis on May 23, 2014

      Yes, perfect timing... will have a week of holiday at exactly that date :)

      Time to darken the room and become a toddler :)

      Yeah, like others have mentioned, here's hoping Oculus support is available by the time my DK2 ships in July. (I'll probably have the game beat by then, but VR would probably add enough immersion to play through again I'd say.)

      Oh wow nice!
      Steam keys will be sent directly to our email? or using something like Humble?
      Just need to be aware since alot of these Kickstarter projects steam key emails go to the junk folder for some reason =(

      I'm so excited.
      Need to buy another one for friend !

    18. Poisoned Venom on May 22, 2014

      Finally! When will we get our Steam keys and how?

    19. Rob B. on May 22, 2014

      Wooo hooooo!!! Congrats Krillbite Team!

    20. Krillbite Studio Creator on May 22, 2014

      There will be more on the Survey and rewards in the coming days :)

    21. Andreas Aronsson on May 22, 2014

      Oh, wat? Just like that? Hahaha xD Could hardly see the trailer as I'm in a sunny train station, I should probably put this laptop away. But, an important question, is Rift support actually in the release now, or will it come later when consumer hardware arrives? :o

      In any case, good job, well done (I presume), will play it soon :D Looking forward to it!

    22. ObserverStatus on May 22, 2014

      So soon? Wow, I'm so glad I wasn't planning on buying Watch Dogs :)

      Wicked - very excited! (This from someone who doesn't usually enjoy horror games - the likes of Slender and Outlast are cool, but only for a short while before they get dull - but the imagination and creativity going into this makes me think it'll probably be a firm favourite for me! :)

    24. Justin Barter on May 22, 2014

      Woohoo! Can't wait to have a play through on my Rift!

    25. Marcin Paterek on May 22, 2014

      No, why now :( Watch Dogs incoming...

    26. Russell Deitch on May 22, 2014

      In addition, with PayPal, was the DLC stretch-goal reached? I can't remember seeing that anywhere.

    27. Nik Stromberg on May 22, 2014

      Amazing! :D I just hope that you guys update your game's Oculus Rift support, once DK2 is shipped out, so that people who get DK2, and eventually the consumer version, will be able to play Among the Sleep with those. ;)

    28. Fredrik Selvig on May 22, 2014

      Crashes a little with Watch_Dogs for me, but I'll wait for PS4 version anyway. This is great news, though!

    29. Christoph Zürcher on May 22, 2014

      Awesome news. Too bad I can't really decide if I should wait for the Rift first :P.

    30. Russell Deitch on May 22, 2014

      We don't seem to have had a survey yet. How do you know where to send my physical goods? [$250 tier]

      Gitle M on May 22, 2014

      Great news of course, but I'm gonna have to wait until the rift DK2 arrives in July to try it anyway.
