Description

Krillbite Studio is an independent game developer creating unique and innovative game experiences. The company was founded in 2011 by graduate students who went on to develop and publish the critically acclaimed horror title Among the Sleep in 2014, a game that has since been ported to Playstation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Our most recent game is called Mosaic, and is a story about our modern society and lifestyle. We are constantly exploring the interactive space with new ideas and concepts.

History

Krillbite Studio started out as a creative collective of students, while studying Experience Production and Interactive Medias at the college university of Hedmark, Norway. The project Among the Sleep was initially started as our thesis project. Thanks to funding from the Norwegian Film Institute and our Kickstarter backers we released Among the Sleep for PC in May 2014. After launching Among the Sleep, we spent a lot of time updating and porting the game to different formats, while simultaneously working on our next project Mosaic. Mosiac was launched for Apple Arcade and PC in 2019, and for consoles in early 2020. At the moment we are ten persons working full time creating games in Krillbite.

Selected Articles

  • "Horror game Among the Sleep coming to Xbox One"
    - Chloi Rad, IGN
  • "I couldn’t have leaped behind a sofa and screamed it better myself."
    - Nathan Grayson, Rock Paper Shotgun
  • "Its depiction of a first-person horror told through the eyes and stumbling little legs of a two-year old is as intriguing as anything I've seen all year, and reminiscent of a time when games actively sought out new ways to play and new stories to tell."
    - Jon Denton, Eurogamer
  • "With all the lumpen, gristly protagonists clogging up today's starring roles, it's heartening to see somebody trying something a little out of the ordinary."
    - Ben Maxwell, Edge
  • "More, please!"
    - Stephen Totilo, Kotaku
  • "Everything, from the sound of infantile breathing to the wobbliness of the camera and the unsteadiness of little hands, has been designed to accurately put ourselves behind the eyes of a toddler. Watching the trailer, the effect is simply astounding, while the Paranormal Activity-style scares that surround the child are pulled off with panache."
    - Jim Sterling, Gamefront
