2D Horror ‘Silence of the Sleep’ Targeting October Release

SilenceotS-620x400

I once called the indie survival horror game Silence of the Sleep the “2D Silent Hill we deserve,” because it shares many of that series’ best traits. It’s delightfully atmospheric, has a fantastically creepy score, unique art style, and plenty of freaky monsters to evade and clever puzzles to solve. It also has something the Silent Hill series was once known for, and that’s a steady build-up of dread, an ominous feeling that something terrible can happen at any time.

In a post on the Silence of the Sleep Steam page, Jesse Makkonen — the ridiculously talented one-man team behind the upcoming game — announced his goal to get it in our hands by October 1st. If he’s successful in that endeavor, we’ll have one more horror game to look forward to in a month that already includes Alien: Isolation and The Evil Within.

In related news, Jesse’s also looking for translators. If you’re fluent in German, Russian, Spanish, Italian, French, Brazilian Portuguese, or Japanese and have some spare time, I highly recommend sending him an email.

    It’s not the 2D horror game that we deserve, it’s the 2D horror game that we need.

    I totally forgot that one guy did this! I’m so impressed when people create a great game when it’s just them.
