First Look at Gameplay!
Kickstarter Updates #28 and #29 Are Live.
Release date: Summer 2015
That Which Sleeps is a turn based strategy game in which the player takes on the role of an awakened evil from the world's past and must manipulate a living, reactive world from the shadows using a cast of unique corrupted Agents. The player must balance an aggressive approach utilizing his considerable power and eager hordes with the need to remain unknown to the Champions and Heroes of the world. Corrupt, conquer, charm, and manipulate - with a fully realized world driven by thematic AIs that follow their own interests you can pursue multiple paths to victory.

Our Kickstarter is Live!

  • Corrupt, conquer, charm, and manipulate - with a fully realized world driven by thematic AIs that follow their own interests you can pursue multiple paths to victory.
  • Customize the world with your choices at the beginning of each scenario, choosing an Ancient Evil and selecting his origins and what dire deeds he has wrought on the world.
  • Make difficult choices with limited agents, choosing to send your Prophet to rouse the orc hordes or beset Kings with maddening dreams will greatly change the flow of the game.
  • Disrupt the Balance of Power by creating famines in the farmland, stoking the flame of old vendettas, or recruiting pirates to the sea.
  • Watch the fame of your Agents rise and heroes will begin to hunt them down. Let them fall as scapegoats and keep your name secret, or imbue them with dark power and take the fight back to the heroes.
  • Each action you take leaves clues behind that cunning heroes can decipher, eventually leading them to the truth.
  • Kill or corrupt them before they find a receptive ear at court.
  • A fully functioning in-game Editor that allows you to create your own scenarios, old ones, heroes, artifacts, and even agents.
  • Localization supported for multiple languages and character sets

Just discovered this came, this seems so cool. Also read about the slowdown in development. But here is me hoping you guys can bring the game to the finish line. :)

Well i'd say the game is kill. Only thing that could convince anyone that it actually exists is a beta release by now, which hasn't even been anounced. Credibility is in the negatives, and Steam should remove this from greenlight for failing so utterly in delivering while taking the money of so many customers (on pre-purchase) and kickstarter funders.

Seems like a quote from Fenicks from baystation forums
"No real updates - spoke briefly with the man and he alluded to the fact that he is pretty much at his breaking point as far as financials go - so options are beg for friends and family money, or push out whatever is done up to the point of release and keep going from there.
Kind of a nebulous update - no real date given - just note that the pressure is building there too.
When I tried to run the game (this is a while ago and like a whole previous iteration) - it couldn't read or access certain data files - I assumed it was error on my part as I am not exactly clever or bright when it comes to such matters."
In other words, It's dead.

Josh sent Fennicks an executable to test the game. But it didn't work because of compatibility issues.

Appearently Josh will send Fennicks another exe file , but hasn't sent it yet.

Also, they are having problems communicating because Google Drive doesn't work.

So with Google drive failing to deliver any new exe, Fennicks will be unable to test it. Also, they are switching to Bittbucket -due to the aforementioned total failure of google drive-.

This was 6 days ago.
