Help Bob to get back to his bed

4 Mar

back to bed bob bedtime game

That wasn’t a metaphor, in this indie game you actually have to help Bob the sleepwalker to get back to his beloved bed. How? Controlling Subob, his subconscious guardian, through an honiric and Dalì-like dream world.

Sounds weirds, and it is indeed. But it also looks amazing and deep. Also a bit creepy…

The project is from Bedtime Games (so appropriate name) and Rusty Dice Digital Games, two Danish indie developers. Back to Bed was originally developed in a student production under the Danish Academy for Digital Interactive Entertainment (DADIU), in the fall of 2011. The members of the production team was made up of student from different universities, art schools, and the Danish Film School. The goal of the production was for student to experience being a part of a full production team, complete with roles and responsibilities. The result of the production is a game with a dozen level and a bunch of different mechanics for puzzles.

The game is currently on Kickstarter looking for funds.

To better understand the game mechanics take a look at the trailer below and/or try the demo.

Indeed seems that Yu Suzuki, acclaimed developer of the Shenmue franchise for SEGA, is seriously thinking about a Kickstarter project to fund the development of Shenmue 3. The news comes from Sebastien Abdelhamid, a french journalist for CANAL+ , that met Suzuki at the Monaco Anime Game Show. Here’s the tweet about the rumor.

We don’t know if this will really happen, but we hope so…still, we are a bit worried about SEGA and its ownership of all the copyrights for the franchise.

Stay tuned!
