Over the past few years the indie space has become a playground for the purity of horror. While big budgets titles have increasingly moved away from the genre, smaller development studios have been coming up with new and terrifying ways to unease us and send a sense of dread cursing through our veins. For a child, those fears can come from the mundane, like household items shrieking to life, or a vivid imagination left to run wild. Among the Sleep preys on this terror, putting you in the tiny body of a two-year old child in an oversized world full of unknown dangers. It’s another example of an indie development studio exploring fear from a completely anomalous angle.
