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

Ya know...they could have gotten a lot more money if they'd just followed through...oh freaking well. Too freaking bad.

It only took them 2 extra years but they finally made it.

To anyone that's still holding out hope.

That has a free, playable version of their game. Not asking anyone to donate to it, just spreading the word that someone else has made that which sleeps by another name.

When you kickstart a game you're not preordering it, you're giving them your money and asking them to use it to make what they promised. You're not owed a refund, as shitty as it is.

Hello, i was noticing on your Kickstarter you guys offered an artbook at a certain price. I was wondering when you plan on releasing it, if you guys could include said book as part of a 'deluxe edition' that would be a more expensive version of the game, due to the fact that it also comes with the digital artbook?

so it turns out the developer of this game didn't actually have any skills with programming or design and he's spend two years trying to learn how to code. woops!

I backed on Kickstarter, and I feel scammed. We will not get what was promised and I will try to get a refund.

Seems the main dev had a depression over aiming too big, there does seem to be progress now though.

I wouldn't expect this game released any time soon but it's nice to know it's still in development.

The concept is awesome..
