19 SEPTEMBER 2017 -- Bedtime Digital Games' award-winning puzzle game, Back To Bed, has been made free on Steam today. Normally priced at $5.99, the title - which started life as a student project before becoming a Kickstarter-funded full game - will be available for zero pennies until Thursday evening (and purchasers will be able to continue to play for free once the giveaway is over).

Those curious about Bedtime Digital's unique blend of artistry with engaging game mechanics can check out what their previous title had to offer ahead of the launch of Figment, their long-awaited musical adventure, on Friday 22 September.

In Back to Bed, players guide the sleepwalker Bob from his sleep-inducing office to the safety of his bed by controlling his subconscious guardian Subob, whose job it is to both guide and protect the sleepwalking Bob.

The pair will travel through a surreal and painting like world where the boundaries between Bob's dream and reality have vanished, but where there are still real world dangers that threaten the sleepwalker. Ever vigilant Subob must now guide Bob around dangers and back to bed.

Back To Bed won a coveted IGF award and was nominated for a variety of other plaudits, including 'Best Console Game' at Indie Prize Europe 2014.

Figment - a musical adventure set in the human mind

In Figment - the studio's long-awaited sophomore title - players take on the role of Dusty, the mind's former voice of courage, as he fights nightmares and gets the mind back to its previous self.

As well as being an engaging, puzzle-driven action-adventure, it's also a full-blown musical -- with an environment that responds audibly to your activities in the world, and a full soundtrack of musical numbers performed by your enemies in the game.

It will release for PC this Friday, the 22 September, and for Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch later in the Winter.
