The Watchlist: That Which Sleeps

Title: That Which Sleeps
Platforms: PC
Release planned for late 2014/2015
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.
That Which Sleeps is an upcoming strategy game that promises a unique and intriguing twist on the genre. Rather than controlling a burgeoning kingdom or nation, you are an ancient evil, a Cthulu-esque force awakened and prepared to take control of the world once more.
But in That Which Sleeps, you are far more clever and insidious than the mere mortals of other strategy games. Outright conquest is beneath you. No, through your influence and power, you turn the nations and enemies that might destroy you against themselves, by manipulating kings through dreams or sending out prophets and agents to do your bidding while you wait and scheme in the shadows. Sow chaos, bloodshed, and dissent in a randomly generated world that adjusts to your growing corruption; more aggressive actions will slowly alert the world to your presence. Great heroes will seek to destroy you, but with your abilities, you may be able to corrupt their minds or send your agents to fight back.
That Which Sleeps is currently in development. You can follow its progress on IndieDB and TIGForum. A Kickstarter is planned for September.
