We Are Fuazzy Studios announced recently that their twin-stick shooter hybrid that combines top-down action with base-building and tower-defense strategy called Sleep Tight is officially available for the Nintendo Switch and on Steam for PC.
The game is designed to imitate the art-style of Pixar films while combining that with traditional arcade-like gunplay.
According to Maxx Burman, the co-founder and creative director at We Are Fuzzy, the game was a culmination of childhood dreams (and possibly nightmares?) brought to life for today’s generation of gamer, mentioning in the press release…
“Sleep Tight started out as a dream we had as children. It’s been an incredible ride bringing that dream to life and we’re proud to finally share it with everyone today as we launch on Nintendo Switch and PC.”
You can see what the gameplay is like with the launch trailer below.
As the video details, the game features 12 playable characters who must face off against their nightmares in a series of stages themed around rooms in a suburban house. The trailer’s focus on diversity might put some gamers off, though, because it looks like needless pandering to the very group of people who don’t buy or play games.
Anyway, the monsters emerge from under the bed and out of the closet, and players will need to fend off their room from the encroaching terrors.
Each of the 12 characters will have their own specialties and abilities that you can exploit during a match. Some of the characters will have certain turret functions unlocked from the start while others will have to build up to unlocking certain abilities. As you’ll note in the trailer, some of the characters also receive bonus buffs for build times, unlock times, or additional defenses for certain turrets and buildables.
You’ll have water balloons, dart guns, pillow forts, and other bedroom toys at your disposal as you fight off wave after wave of enemies.
What’s weird is that the game features Mixer support even though it’s not available on the Xbox One. However, given that it does feature Mixer support, don’t be surprised if the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game will release at some point in the near future.
The game is available right now for PC and Nintendo Switch.
