Whoa!

We’re still climbing, how awesome is that :D It's incredibly inspiring to read all your great comments, especially to the playable alpha. We're even closing in on the Oculus Rift stretch goal, but first: ICE CREAM!

Thank you so much, it was a really tasty ice cream, and for that we can’t thank you enough. (Photo by Moondrop)

Back using PayPal »

You can now participate in the Kickstarter using PayPal! Backing tiers can be found on this link, but add-ons will have to be added after the Kickstarter, in the survey e-mail.

T-shirt designs

Here are some of the T-shirt designs. What do you think?

All tiers from SOULMATE and up include a T-shirt. It can also be acquired as an add-on, for $30. You will be able to choose which design you want in the e-mail survey after the campaign.  For physical add-ons, remember to include $15 for international shipping if your pledge does not already include shipping of physical goods :)

We're now entering the final stage of the campaign, and we still have some great things to share during the remaining hours, so stay tuned!

Thank you again, a thousand times over, onwards and upwards!

WHOHOOO! You wonderful people, WE DID IT! :D

Among the Sleep is now past 100% funded! You have no idea how much this means to us, we’re soooo grateful for all your generosity, your inspiring enthusiasm, and your tireless dedication for the last month! We even reached our first stretch goal already:

Now it’s our turn to deliver. We’re back to intensive work on Among the Sleep, and we can’t wait to show you everything we have in store for the project, in due time.

To get a feel for the mood in the office at the moment, please check the video below :) Thanks again, to the wonderful AnnleisFilm, for helping out with the movie.

Playable Alpha

In addition, your feedback on the playable alpha has been amazing! Thanks a lot for playing, for providing valuable feedback, and for helping us discover bugs. We promise to go through all your comments and input :)

For those of you who are still waiting to try it, it can be downloaded from these links:

Download for PC »      Download for MAC »      Download for Linux »

We have also updated the Windows version, for those of you who experienced problems on 32bit systems yesterday.

Help our friends at Rain!

We would like to end this update by showing some love for a great fellow Norwegian indie developer. Rain is working on an awesome looking 2d puzzle-platformer called Teslagrad, and they’ve just released a greenlight campaign! Show some love by upvoting if you like the game! <3

Thanks so much again, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping to make Among the Sleep possible!

So close!

We are incredibly close to reaching our goal! At the time of writing, we’re at $196.000, and 97% funded! Things are definitely looking great, and we’re humbled by all your support. Thanks so much for sharing the word and helping us reach our goal!

Now it’s our turn to deliver.

Free playable Alpha of Among the Sleep!

We’ll start by releasing a free playable build of Among the Sleep! Now all of you will be able to try it out for yourself.

Download for PC »    Download for MAC »    Download for Linux »

For those of you on tiers $100 and up, your alpha access this summer will both include a bigger part of the game, and be more polished. In addition, your tiers will include Beta-access when it’s time for that.

Please do keep in mind that this is an early alpha, and does not represent the final quality of the game. After playing, you are also encouraged to provide all your feedback on this page! Also, if you’d like to share a playthrough on Youtube or anything, you’re free to do so.

Regarding Oculus Rift support, we’re working hard to publish this as well! First we’ll publish a stereoscopic video, so that you can experience the sense of scale and depth as fast as possible. We also want to publish the same public alpha we published today, with the test-implementation of Oculus Rift, but this will take us some more time.

We hope you have fun playing :)

Playable alpha coming tomorrow & Art contest winners

Hi everyone!

Today we passed $180.000 pledged, and 90% funded! We’re so close now, and with a few days left, things are looking rather good :D Thanks again, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping to make Among the Sleep possible! But this is not the time to sleep. We’ll continue to work hard towards the funding goal, and we could use all help we can get.

Lets do this!

Playable alpha coming tomorrow

We want to reward your great support, and have worked hard to be able to release a playable alpha of the game for you to test. It will be released on our Kickstarter page tomorrow at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT / 8pm CEST! For those of you with tiers including alpha access this summer, that version will both contain more of the game and be more polished. In addition, you generous folks will also receive Beta-access when it’s time for that.

For those interested in trying the alpha with their Oculus Rift dev-kits, we are first working to publish a stereoscopic video captured in-game, so you can get a feel of how things look with VR as fast as possible. We also want to get you a quick implementation for the entire alpha ASAP, but this will probably take us a few more weeks.

Art Contest Winners!

The deadline for the contest to create something inspired by Among the Sleep ended on friday, and we’ve had tons of fun looking through all the submissions! It was naturally hard to choose only one winner, so instead we chose three very different ones! Check them out below!

As you can see, we’ve already added them to various parts of the game. The winners will also be credited & published, along with some more highlights from the contest, on our facebook page once we have gotten that approved with those of you involved.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated! Your dedication transmits to us.

A little reminder regarding Add-ons
To everyone that have added various rewards to your tier, please remember the $15 international shipping fee if your tier does not already include shipping of physical goods! :)

We should get back to work with preparing the Alpha now, talk soon!

Awesome dialogue talent onboard & Stretch Goal details

Studio Jory to do the dialogue recordings for Among the Sleep!

We are proud to announce that if we reach our goal, Studio Jory will be recording the dialogue for Among the Sleep!

For those unfamiliar with their earlier work, we’re talking multiple award winning (AKA GOTYs-all over the place) The Walking Dead, Monkey Island Series, Knights of the Old Republic, as well as Pixar’s For the Birds, Oscar winning Lost in Translation, and numerous other great projects. In other words we’re confident that the quality of the final voice will hold a very high level of quality :)

Stretch goals!

If we are fortunate enough to receive more than our goal, what would we spend it on?

We are very satisfied with the existing design of Among the Sleep, but there are numerous things that we‘d like to be able to offer you on the side of the game itself.

Like we mentioned in the Oculus Update Video, we’ll be including a basic implementation either way, but we’d really like to spend some time optimizing and exploring some amazing possibilities with the technology.

We’d also very much like to include a proper in-game Commentary Track, so that you can hear our thoughts, anecdotes and other stories from the development of Among the Sleep should you choose.

Fan-Art Contest

Due to popular demand, the Fan-Art Contest deadline will be extended by two days, until friday! We’ve received tons of great submissions already, so we’re looking forward to publish the winner & highlights!

Participate by sending your art to contest@krillbite.com by the 8th of May!

Thanks!
