Sleep Is Death is now pay-what-you-want


As of right now, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn't at least try Jason Rohrer's delightful, unique game, Sleep Is Death. Rohrer has officially lowered the price to ... well, whatever you're willing to pay for it. The minimum is $1.75 -- in order to cover processing and bandwidth fees -- but beyond that you can set your own price. The purchase nets two copies of Sleep Is Death -- one for you and one for a friend on Mac, Linux, or PC -- along with access to all future updates.

In case you missed our hands-on impressions of the game, it's essentially an adventure game with a sizable twist: it's actually being created as you play. It can only be played between two people, with one acting as the 'player' and the other acting as 'controller,' who creates the story and game assets on the fly. If it sounds bizarre, it is, but it's also one of the most intriguing game concepts we've seen this year.

Whatever you choose to pay for it, it will be a small price to pay for the opportunity to create stories like this.
