Back to Bed brings its surreal sleepwalking puzzles to the Switch in April
25 Mar, 2019
2Awesome Studio has announced that it will be publishing the sleep-themed puzzle game Back to Bed on the Nintendo Switch. You can grab it next month.
Bedtime Digital Games’ debut puzzle game Back to Bed will be hitting the Switch as soon as next month. You can get your hands on it on 11th April at the Nintendo eShop.
The game will be ported and published by 2Awesome Studio, which has previously developed Dimension Drive. 2Awesome Studio has also previously published The Bug Butcher on Switch, making this their second publishing effort.
Here’s what the game’s about:
Back to Bed is an artistic 3D puzzle game with a surreal twist. Bob is an unlucky narcoleptic who has a tendency of falling asleep in his boring office and then proceeding to sleepwalk into the dangers of the big city. Luckily, Bob has a subconscious guardian named Subob, who protects the sleepwalker and guides him back to the safety of his bed.
The ever-vigilant Subob must lead Bob on a journey through a series of surreal painting-like cityscapes, where the boundary between Bob’s dreams and reality have vanished.
Have a look at the Switch release trailer:
The prototype for Back to Bed was originally developed by students of the Danish National Academy of Digital Interactive Entertainment. The prototype was later adapted into a full-fledged game produced under the studio name Bedtime Digital Games. The studio later went on to develop the action-adventure game Figment in 2017.
Back to Bed originally released in 2014 for PC, Mac, and Linux, and has been subsequently ported to a number of platforms including PS4, Wii U, iOS, and Android.

If you prefer your puzzles to be more of the narrative adventure variety, consider the point-and-click Truberbrook, which we reviewed recently. Also have a look at the cyberpunk world of Tales of the Neon Sea.
