Among the Sleep

What is Among the Sleep?  (from Krillbite Studio)

Among the Sleep is a first person horror adventure, in which you play a two year old child. The game explores horror through atmosphere and exploration, not with scores and combat systems. In Among the Sleep you’re vulnerable, scared, and trying to make sense of the world.


Among the Sleep is a software program developed by Krillbite Studio. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named Among the Sleep.exe. The setup package generally installs about 74 files and is usually about 2.92 MB (3,058,019 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 65% of users of Among the Sleep come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and Norway.
