DescriptionBack to Bed is a 3D puzzle student game shown from an isometric perspective set in surreal dream environments. The game is about Bob, a narcoleptic who falls asleep and then sleepwalks. The player controls a subconscious guardian who needs to guide him safely to his bed. The environment does not represent a real city as it mixed with a dream world with a visual style that has influences of the painters Dali and Margritte along with impossible shapes and perspectives.
Bob walks on his own in a straight line and cannot be controlled by the player. When he reaches an obstacle he turns 90 degrees clockwise and he walks straight into gaps, restarting the level. The guardian needs to strategically place obstacles, mainly apples, to change his direction. Parts of the environment can be used as well. Dogs need to be scared away, flat fishes can be used as planks over gaps, and Bob can never walk on the train tracks used by a giant whale train. The guardian can only carry one item at a time and it can be dropped anywhere, except for the tile Bob is currently using. When Bob falls into a gap or wakes up, the entire level needs to be restarted. Optionally levels can be skipped. The screen starts to shake and glow when Bob is about to wake up. Other game elements are teleporters used to reach another part of the level, lips that use wind to blow Bob to another location and giant finger signs that can be put down in any direction to make Bob walk that way. A level is completed when Bob reaches his bed.
The player needs to experiment with various strategies. A line of black footsteps appears in front of Bob to show where he will be walking, incorporating collisions with obstacles, to help the player plan. There are also see-through stairs that can be used to run up walls in an impossible way. There is a fast-forward button to quickly get Bob to a position further in the level. The game consists of 12 levels.
