Bedtime Digital Games released its last game Back to Bed on Wii U. The studio announced today that its next project, Figment, will launch on Switch later this year.
Figment is described as “a whimsical adventure set in the recesses of the human mind. Nightmarish creatures have arrived, spreading fear wherever they go. As Dusty, the mind’s former voice of courage, you’ll fight the nightmares and solve an array of puzzles. As Dusty gets back to his old self, he can help the mind to face its fears.”
More details about Figment, along with a trailer, are included below. The video highlights how Figment is both a game and a musical, as the game’s characters perform while Dusty moves through the game world.
Figment is a musical action-adventure set in the recesses of the human mind: a strange and surreal world; a place filled with our deepest thoughts, urges and memories, populated by the many voices we hear in our heads.
This mind has been quiet and calm for many years. But something has changed. New thoughts have started to emerge – taking the shape of nightmarish creatures who spread fear wherever they go. The only hope is for the grumpy Dusty, the mind’s former voice of courage, to get back to his old self and help the mind to face its fears.
Figment invites players to join Dusty and his ever-optimistic friend, Piper, on an adventure through the different sides of the mind, solving puzzles to set things straight, beating back the nightmares and seeking to restore the courage that’s been lost.
A gorgeous hand-drawn world to explore and restore
Fight human fears head-on, as you battle with sinister nightmares
Use both brawn and brain, solving puzzles and battling enemies
Enjoy a full score of musical performances, nightmarish and otherwise, which are defined by your exploration of the world
