Indie studio We Are Fuzzy has announced that it is bringing the twin-stick shooter Sleep Tight to the Switch in Q1 2018.
Studio co-founder Maxx Burman - whose art and visual effects credits include Far Cry 5, League of Legends, Call of Duty, Destiny, Westwood and Titanfall - has assembled a team of "AAA and Hollywood" veterans which includes Disney artists who have worked on the likes of Big Hero 6 and Wreck It Ralph.
Sleep Tight is described as an "adrenaline pumping arcade-style, twin-stick shooter with base-building elements" and seeks to emulate the "charming" world of Pixar movies. In the game, you assume the role of a child who spends the day building pillow forts in preparation for the incoming flood of monsters that appears when the lights go out. Weapons include foam dart-guns, water balloon launchers and other toys. You'll be able to upgrade these weapons to unlock new skills.
Here's what Burman had to say about the game:
Since I was a kid, I always wanted to make games. After 10 years of working on other people's projects, it was time to make my own, and I wanted to go back to that feeling of pure play. I feel fortunate to work with such talented artists to bring this Pixar-esque world to life. I think it's an experience that will appeal to the young at heart, no matter their age.
Sleep Tight is being built using Unreal Engine and is also confirmed for Steam. Interested? Let us know with a comment.
