First-person toddler-crawler Among the Sleep to terrify grown men and women May 29

Among the Sleep, a pioneer in the first-person baby horror gen, is going to make you feel all weak and vulnerable very, very soon. The spooky game about a small child who escapes the crib to discover a fairyland hell is coming to Steam on May 29.

When I played an early demo of the game last year, I found the experience entirely unnerving, despite the fact that I was playing in a crowded coffee shop in full daylight sipping a warm latte topped with cutesy latte art. There were so many weird and disturbing things going on in the demo, aside from the gotcha scares: demonic portals under the stairs, untrustworthy sidekick anthropomorphic teddy bears, and I couldn’t find my mommy. You should be nervously anticipating this one if you have repressed memories of any of these things.
