Last Tuesday, We Are Fuzzy, a new development team made up of veteran AAA devs and big-budget film VFX artists announced their debut game: Sleep Tight. With huge names like Far Cry, League of Legends, Wreck-It Ralph and Zootopia under the team’s belt, it’s very clear that this will be a game to keep an eye on.
Sleep Tight is an imaginative, Pixar inspired, twin-stick shooter with base-building elements. You play as a kid armed to the teeth with foam dart guns and water balloon launchers and you must spend the day building up your pillow fort defences, so that when night falls you’re prepared for the hordes of monster attacks. Throughout these hectic fights, you’ll need to run around the battlefield (bedroom) to collect stars from fallen enemies to upgrade your skills, buy power-ups, and unlock new weapons.
This game is heaped in childhood nostalgia and looks to, as said by Maxx Burman, co-founder and creative director at We Are Fuzzy “…go back to that feeling of pure play.” so if you enjoy playing and reminiscing about the fun of childhood then maybe Sleep Tight is the game for you.
Available on Nintendo Switch and on PC, Sleep Tight is scheduled for release in the first quarter of next year. Check out the trailer below and for more information on We Are Fuzzy and Sleep Tight, visit the game’s site and follow the official twitter.
