20 JULY 2017 -- Bedtime Digital Games has announced today that its upcoming musical adventure, Figment, will launch on Nintendo Switch later this year - and unveiled a brand new trailer to celebrate the news.

The game will also be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, following its initial release on PC this September.

Figment is 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.

But Figment is not just a game; it's also a fully-fledged musical, performed by the game's cast of nightmarish characters as Dusty traverses around the game world. Figment's latest trailer takes the form of a music video and showcases The Plague Song - both in-game, and as performed by composer Niels Højgaard Sørensen in the studio.

"We're really pleased to announce Figment for the Nintendo Switch," said creative director Jonas Byrresen. "We feel the platform is a perfect match for Figment's whimsical world, its intuitive combat mechanics, and its hours of puzzle-filled storytelling."

About Figment

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.

Key features:

  • 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
