Sleepwalking can be hazardous to your health. This is proven. What is not known is how conscious someone who is sleepwalking is of the hazards and dangers they are approaching or which are approaching them. Subconsciously guiding yourself while you sleepwalk sounds farfetched, right? But that is precisely the premise of Bedtime Digital Games’ upcoming puzzle game, Back to Bed.
Originally released around this time in August of last year, Back to Bed is back, this time remastered and optimized for the Playstation family of entertainment systems via publisher LOOT Interactive.
I was able to have a brief Q&A about Back to Bed with Bedtime Digital Games via email, and got a pair of shiny new exclusive screenshots for you too.
Here we go…
Q: First of all, what is Back to Bed? Please summarize it for our readers.
A: Back to Bed is a challenging and whimsical puzzle game featuring environments inspired by the surreal artwork of such renowned modern artists as M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali and René Magritte.
In Back to Bed, players take on the role of Subob – the dog-like manifestation of sleepwalker Bob’s subconscious – who must guide him through increasingly challenging dream-like levels with the goal of ushering the sound asleep Bob back to bed.
Q: How did the port to PS4, PS3, and Vita enhance the game (graphics-wise, gameplay-wise, etc.)?
A: Back to Bed on PlayStation has been visually enhanced and remastered in 1080p at 60 frames per second. We also took advantage of the light bar and rumble features of the DualShock 4 controller to enhance the player experience.
Q: About how long did it take to complete the PS4 port?
A: It took us about 4 months to complete the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita port.
Q: Is the game able to be cross-played and cross-saved?
A: Yes! Back to Bed will be available as a 3-way cross-buy for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and it will have cross save capabilities.
…And that’s it. I know, it’s short, but the full original game pretty much speaks for itself.
So, with that in mind, we’re not done yet: below are two new screenshots exclusively for our readers here at OnlySP.
Back to Bed is scheduled for release soon in Summer 2015 for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita. Bundled with the cross-platform purchase is a limited-edition PS4 dynamic theme, available for download at launch.
