Among the Sleep Review: Stumbling but Not Falling

Among the Sleep Title Card (Featured Image)Two reviews in one week! This one is on Among the Sleep, an intriguing game where you play as a two-year-old baby. It’s flawed but the creators clearly cared about the game and its uniqueness and heart save it.

“Playing as a baby changes how you move through and see the world. The movement is appropriately clunky. Walking is a slow process but it allows you to climb up onto short objects and ledges. You can run but only for a few seconds before you topple over and start crawling. Opening doors requires finding a way to reach the doorknob before having to slowly push it open. Words on boxes and in books are just meaningless gibberish. Everyday objects like staircases and closets become staggeringly huge from a baby’s perspective. Spaces under furniture and in cabinets become natural hiding places. Your mother looks like a giant who easily moves through these places but for a baby each door, room, hallway and staircase can be a challenge.”
