Surreal puzzler Back to Bed comes to Steam and Android

Last year the surreal puzzle game and IGF 2013 Student Showcase #winner Back to Bed made news, and now it’s out on #Android and iOS for $3.99 / £2.49 .

It also came out earlier this month on Linux, Mac and Windows PC via Steam, where it goes for $5.99 / £4.49.

The Danish indie affair tasks players with guiding a somnambulist’s subconscious self around a bizarre dreamscape in hopes of getting him to his bed. Back to Bed was successful in its March 2013 Kickstarter where it succeeded its $12K funding goal with a total of $13,312.

Back to Bed is an artistic 3D puzzle game with a surreal twist. It tells the story of Bob, 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, whom spawns from the mind of Bob and whose job it is to protect the sleepwalker from any danger and guide him back to the safety of his bed.

“If Salvador Dali, David Lynch and Robert Wiene were all alive and collaborated on a puzzle game together I’d imagine the results would look something like Back to Bed,” I wrote about the peculiar puzzler last year.
