Enjoy the Escherian landscapes of Monument Valley [$3.99] but want more? Well, this August, Dadiu Games' Back to Bed should provide more chaotic dreamscapes to explore, but with more of a puzzling flavor.

Back to Bed 1

Back to Bed's not a clone of Monument Valley, as it actually predates the game with a 2013 Kickstarter, and of course MC Escher predates everyone. But the game is also different in that it's about interacting with objects and the world as a part of Bob's subconscious, Subob. You have direct control over Subob, moving objects out of the way and helping to get Bob, who walks straight forward and turns right at walls, to his bed safely.

Back to Bed 2

The game's built in Unity, so the developers are able to release mobile versions alongside the Steam version for the planned August release. The game will support MFi gamepads along with touchscreen controls. If you want a taste of the game, you can play an early version on your computer from the Back to Bed website, though the full version will have improved visuals and more content, but this should let you see if this is a game worth keeping an eye on.

    Well put.

    Hopefully it will have more level than Monument Valley as well as game play, that was simply an overpriced curiosity with far to easy gameplay, hopefully new levels will address that. This looks nice though so on my watch list...... GaZ

      While I really liked Monument Valley, it felt more like an interactive linear animation as there weren't many puzzles and no sense of achievement as you advanced as it was all too easy. Hope this game will improve on that

    Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I love MC Escher's art. Monument Valley was such a great game too. This will definitely be an instabuy for me.

    Looks great! Reminiscent of Echochrome and Echoshift.

    Thiago Tip: The adjective "escheresque" exists and is a more compact way of saying "Escher inspired".
