The debut project from indie studio We are Fuzzy, Sleep Tight, has brought together veterans from Ubisoft, Disney and Hollywood, and boy does it show.
In this twin-stick shooter, base-builder hybrid, you can spend the day building pillow forts to defend against the monsters that attack kids’ bedrooms at night. Make use of toy weapons, like dart guns and water balloons, to vanquish the enemy hordes and complete missions to unlock new characters with distinct loadouts and abilities.
Exactly how players survive the night is up to them. Whether it’s running and gunning or hiding behind a fort and letting turrets do the work, Sleep Tight supports a variety of viable strategies. In addition to this, there is a cast of 12 playable characters, each with their own distinctive attributes and playstyle. And what’s more: Five of the kids turn the core survival experience on its head by introducing new unlockable game types, including Tommy’s first-person shooter mode, Picasso’s “Ultimate Pillow Fort” mode, and Kodie’s “Trial of the Teddy” mode.
“Sleep Tight started out as a dream we had as children,” said Maxx Burman, co-founder and creative director of We Are Fuzzy. “It’s been an incredible ride bringing that dream to life and we’re proud to finally share it with everyone as we launch on Nintendo Switch and PC.”
