You may remember Back to Bed, an adventure game released on the Wii U last year. Well, Bedtime Digital Games, the developers, are back with another game, this time on the Nintendo Switch. Called Figment, it’s a music action-adventure game, set in the recesses of the human mind.
You get to play as Dusty, the mind’s former voice of course, and you have to fight the nightmarish creatures that have arrived and spread fear everywhere. Of course, there’s various of puzzles to solve, too! But the only way for Dusty to face his fears is to get back to his old self.
Here’s what the story is all about:
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.
What’s so interesting about Figment is that it’s not “just” a game: it’s a full-fledged musical. And the musicians are none other than the game’s cast of nightmarish characters themselves!
If you want to see what the game looks like in action, here’s the latest trailer:
