Toddler horror Among the Sleep dreams up Kickstarter

Babies are so stupid. They're tiny little idiots who think the world ends if you cover their eyes and are scared of almost everything. They're rubbish. But imagine you were one of these miniature fools, fleeing from unreal terrors in your onesie. That's unpleasant. Among the Sleep wants to do that to you, if you'll help crowd-fund it.

Among the Sleep sees a two-year-old child trapped in a dreamy half-real world. You'll roam, romp, solve the odd puzzle, and flee. Stupid baby, it doesn't even know the monster stalking it isn't real. Or is it? I don't know, because I haven't played it. Who's the stupid baby now, Alice?

Developer Krillbite Studio revealed the horror game last May, but last week turned to Kickstarter for funding to finish it up. The dev team would like $200,000 so they can afford to quit their part-time jobs and focus on the game, aiming to bring it to PC, Mac and Linux by the end of 2013.

Pledging at least $20 will get you a copy of the game when it's finished.
