First Look at Gameplay!
Kickstarter Updates #28 and #29 Are Live.
Description
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!

Features
  • 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

Make sure you report them to Kickstarter. The report button is at the very bottom of the page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kingdinosaurgames/that-which-sleeps

Yup. That's sad.

Game is COMPLETELY dead, regardless of what these people are saying. Creator website is defunct, Fenicks fell off the face of the Earth, Twitter/Facebook are gone. This is money down the drain for those of us that Kickstarted it.

Yeah...but I bet a loooot more people look here, than there.

Keep in mind many more updates have been released on the kickstarter since this page was last updated in 2015.

You're right...wow...they are just really bad at keeping people updated. Well. Glad to hear it.

Game isn't dead, 2 more videos have been released on the youtube channel. Developer is just REALLY bad with deadlines and consistency.

To anyone that's still holding out hope. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1677505065/shadows-behind-the-throne/description

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.
