Phew. It felt good to finally say it. For the last few months we have been very quiet, we haven’t blogged and we haven’t really been that active outside our office. The reason? We’ve been hard at work on an enhanced edition of our game...
This weekend a great friend our ours, Jory Prum, passed away after a motorcycle accident. We are in deep sorrow for this loss and we wanted to take some time and write something is his memory. Jory was a sound engineer, a sound wizard, if we may, and our own beloved sound designer Martin Kvale has written some words to remember him by.
You would think a first person horror game would be perfect for Virtual Reality. We thought so too, but in the last two years we have learned otherwise. Virtual Reality is wonderful, it’s immersive, engaging and powerful. But you really need to design your game for VR from the ground up, not the other way around.
Some of you know that we have been looking for a new CEO and an extra programmer. We are happy to announce that we have found our new CEO; Jon Cato Lorentzen. Yesterday was his first day at the office! Yay!
The past weeks have been amazing! The 20th to 22nd of May we attended Nordic Game in Malmö which also included Nordic Game Awards. We were honoured by receiving the award for Best Artistic Achievement. This is such a great accomplishment for us!
We’ve been working on this extra little bit of the game along with our Kickstarter backers since release this summer. The free DLC contains a whole new chapter, which is meant to be played after the main game is completed (as it expands a bit on the main story).
So for those of you who’ve finished the game and long for more: enjoy!
Since release this summer, we’ve amongst other things been working on the Free DLC, that was one of our stretch goals during the Kickstarter for Among the Sleep. It is very close to being finished, and will be released next week on wednesday 5th of November!
