Another Loot Interactive game I checked out was called Back to Bed. Frankly fun puzzle games will win me over every time and much like Velocibox, I had to pull myself away from this game so that I wouldn’t just play it all day. It was addictive to say the least. The basically idea is that you play the subconscious of our sleepwalking man. You must guide him back to bed so that he doesn’t die. To do so you have to place objects in his path and pay attention to which direction it will send him to navigate him to bed. The world though is very surreal and inspired by the works of M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali and René Magritte. They’re very open about that inspiration because when you see the levels that’s all you’ll see. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the artists themselves you’ll look at the game design and think, “I’ve seen that somewhere before…”
There’s not much else to say about the game. The controls were polished and since it’s on a grid it’s not like they needed to be that complex. It’s beautiful to look at and frankly I look forward to playing through the game in its entirety.
It’s coming out for the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita this summer as well so if you have any of those systems I would definitely encourage you to check it out if this puzzle game sounds like fun to you. Again, I need to go price Vita’s so that I can play this when it’s out.
