Recap & the road ahead

Posted by Krillbite Studio (Creator)

Since release we have, among other things, been working to finish all the Kickstarter rewards. Like the Official Soundtrack (click here for a peak listen!), and Art Book (sneak peak below!).

All the rewards are really shaping up, and are going into mastering and physical production very soon. We’re sure you’ll be delighted to see the finished results!

We’ve also continued patching the game since release, with any technical issues that have been brought to our attention. You can read the complete patch notes on this page. We’ve scheduled the next patch (v.1.2.0) for this Friday! And as always, if you encounter any issues, please use this form to report it.

As one of our Stretch Goals we wanted to make a free DLC, in collaboration with you, our backers. This is something we’ll start working fully on from 23th of June, and the discussions for what it should be have already started over at the backer forum. We will let the discussions regarding overall theme, settings and content continue throughout this week, before we hope to set these things in stone pretty quickly next week. We’re really looking forward to getting started, and hearing all your awesome ideas!

The PS4 version of Among the Sleep is also progressing well, and will be continued to develop and polish in the time ahead. More news on this soon.

We’re also thrilled that Among the Sleep has sold quite well! There will be a blog post on the details soon, but this basically means that we’ll be able to continue working together on a new project! :D We’re well into planning our next project already, more on that soon.

And lastly,remember the in-game *secret* backer treat! At the bottom of the ‘Controls’ menu, assign a button to ‘Console’. Press the assigned key in-game, and enter the password “backerblocks” in the window, and press enter. Press the assigned key to hide the console-window again, and press ‘B’ to let the fun commence. There are lots of neat things you’ll be able to do with the console window, like this, but we’ll let you explore the rest on your own.

Thanks for reading, and speak soon!

First day is over! :D (Update on digital copies, incoming patch, and Reddit AMA tomorrow!)

Posted by Krillbite Studio (Creator)

It’s been over one whole day since release! Feels more like five minutes though, and we’re not really resting yet!

To know that the game is actually out feels incredible! We’ve also received some really great responses, and are having a blast watching Twitch streamers :D GameInformer just called the game “an impressive feat in video game storytelling. It leaves more of an impact in a distilled 3 to 4 hours than some games with 60-hour campaigns". We sincerely hope some of you’ve had time to play it as well, and that you also enjoy the experience! We sure can’t wait to start making the awesome DLC in cooperation with you soon :)

The office is still teeming with life! Above averagely stoked krill, going about their post-release business.

Patch incoming!

Since release, we’ve been working to improve any issues that have been brought to our attention. The new patch is being uploaded right now, and your game should soon be updating automatically :) For the curious, here are the patch notes for the update!

We'll continue updating and improving on the game going forward, so please use this form if you encounter any issues!

Issue with the digital copies of the game?

We were bummed to hear that many backers did not receive their digital copies immediately at launch yesterday. These problems were apparently due to some technical issues, but the lovely people at Humble solved this, and say all keys should be delivered now. :)

If you for some reason are still waiting for a key, they recommended trying this tool. If this doesn’t work, let us know on and we’ll work something out! And again, thanks for your great patience!

If it's any consolation: we've also implemented a backer treat in tomorrows Patch! :D

Luckily, something we do have control over, is the GAME! So we’ve included a treat especially for you in tomorrows patch!

In the ‘Controls’ menu, assign a button to ‘Console’ at the bottom. Press the assigned key in-game, and enter the password “BackerBlocks” in the window, before pressing enter. Press the assigned key again to hide the console-window, and press ‘B’ to let the fun commence. There are also other neat things you’ll be able to do with the console, but we’ll let you explore those on your own :D (PS: This might also be an advantage in a competition we’re running during tomorrows AMA)

Reddit AMA tomorrow!

Tomorrow evening at 10am PST / 5pm GMT we’ll be doing an AMA over at! Here you’ll be able to talk to us directly, about anything about the game, development, release, thoughts, anything really.

I find Sveins proof picture and invite pretty sensual:

 We'll be in touch shortly, and hope to see you in the Reddit AMA tomorrow!

Until next time,

And it's apparently "Unmissable", Polygon just announced on Facebook :)

Regarding your digital copies, there were apparently some technical issues over at Humble around release. If anyone still have not received their key, Humble says they are working on it, and suggests trying this tool! Thanks so much for your patience.

It’s also available from Steam, GOG & HumbleStore this very instant.

But it’s not completely over yet. We’ll continue to patch and update the game as we are made aware of any bugs and issues people encounter. We also have some rewards and stretch goals to complete, including the free DLC that we’ll develop together with those of you who are interested!

If you have any other issues, please report them through this form.

It’s been said many times before, but we feel it’s apt to say it one more time: Thank you all, very much. The game is ready, and it’s because of you.

We’ll see you Among the Sleep!

Rest assured, keys are imminent!

24 hours left until Among the Sleep releases!

Posted by Krillbite Studio (Creator)

At the risk of sounding melodramatic...


To be precise, it’s exactly 24 hours until the game pops up in your inbox, Steam, HumbleStore, GOG, and the interwebs in general.

To help soothe the remaining wait, please enjoy this fresh gameplay teaser:

We’ll be sending out the digital copies of the game to your e-mail, a few hours before the game is released. All of you should also have received your Kickstarter surveys by now, and all is dandy. If something’s unclear, please don’t hesitate to reach out at

Also, this beauty is currently being uploaded to Steam :D

See you in 24 hours!
