You make it all worth it. We're really overwhelmed with your response and questions, both emotionally and practically (so please excuse us if it we spend some time getting back to all of you!). After two days we're really excited about how this will turn out, the journey has just begun!
We're doing a Reddit AMA from now onwards. If you have a question that has not been answered in the FAQ, or would just like to chat, please don’t hesitate to join in! :)
If Reddit is not your baby bottle of tea, please send us private messages from the Kickstarter page, and we’ll reply ASAP!
We have run a few tests! The system requirements below might be subject to change during the remaining development, but it should paint you a picture of what to expect:
Processor: Intel Core 2 DUO 2.4 GHz / AMD Athlon X2 2.7 GHz
Memory: 3 GB (32 bit OS) 4GB (64 bit OS)
Video Card: 512 MB or more, DirectX 9-compatible with support for Pixel Shader 3.0
These specs unfortunately imply it will be next to impossible to make an Ouya version of Among the Sleep. But! We'll work hard to getting it out on as many platforms we can! We want as many people as possible to be able to play it.
Addons coming on monday
Would you like a specific reward added to your tier? (e.g. if you would like a T-shirt or boxed copy included in a lower level tier). Don't despair! We will be publishing Addon specific information on monday :)

Some highlights from the press
We'd like to end this second update on a grateful note. We’ve been so privileged to receive a lot of positive press around the web the last couple of days! Both on huge websites and in the most secluded and obscure corners of the internet. That is awesomely humbling, and make us confident that we're not alone in wanting to see Among the Sleep created.
“Among the Sleep is easily one of the most intriguing horror concepts I've run into.”
The Escapist - Andy Chalk
“Among The Sleep uses a child’s vivid imagination to so confidently move from chilling horror experience to magical adventure without you ever noticing the transition.”
IndieStatik - Chris Priestman
“Movement is what’s grabbing my attention more than anything else: the full body awareness seems excellent.”
Rock Paper Shotgun - Craig Pearson
In addition, here is a selection of other articles in case you’re interested: The Verge, Eurogamer, Joystiq, Kotaku, PC Gamer, Destructoid, GameInformer & IndieGames.com.
Thanks so much for all your support, and the amazing amount of positive feedback on the concept. We're certainly just getting started, so stay tuned!
