Described as a "bizarre mix of Salvador Dali, M.C. Escher and David Lynch," Back To Bed casts players as a subconscious manifestation named "Subob" as he attempts to guide his narcoleptic real-world body through a dreamscape of deadly obstacles. To aid in this quest, developer Bedtime Digital Games has crafted new controls for the mobile version, offering players a choice between standard touchscreen navigation and a virtual controller.
If the above has piqued your interest, you can purchase Back To Bed from either the iOS or Android app stores. Regardless of which platform you prefer, the dreamy puzzle game is priced at $4.
