Did you see that Back to Bed is now on Apple TV?
You may have some relatives coming over for Christmas or New Year’s, and you may be wondering what you’re going to do with them the whole time they’re there. Well, if you have the latest Apple TV, you could always just send them Back to Bed.
The popular (and rather complex) puzzle-platformer has been downloaded over 5 million times on iOS, where it made excellent use of the iPhone and iPad’s touchscreen. That’s lost in the Apple TV version, but as game designer Jonas Byrresen explains, it’s more about the gaming experience you can get on a big screen:
“… I Tthink Back to Bed really fits the Apple TV well. I see the Apple TV as a strong platform for those high quality premium games, that sometimes can get a little lost in the free to play dominated mobile space. This platform isn’t really for Match 3 games, it’s for gems like Transitor, Badland, Oceanhorn and, of course, Back to Bed.”
The Apple TV version allows players to enjoy the game in high resolution and high fidelity sound, and supports the Siri remote as well as MFI controllers.
As for the game’s premise:
Back to Bed is a 3D indie puzzle game set in a unique and artistic dream world, wherein you guide the sleepwalker Bob to the safety of his bed. To achieve this, you must take control of Bob’s subconscious guardian named Subob. The pair travels through a surreal and painting-like dream world, filled with objects used to guide Bob towards the Bed, but also dangers that must be avoided!
Back to Bed is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese and Japanese, and can be downloaded now for $2.99 with no ads or IAPs from the iTunes App Store. For more information, visit bedtimedigitalgames.dk.
