    Hello people of TouchArcarde! We’re Bedtime Digital Games, an indie dev based in Denmark. We have previously brought Back to Bed and Chronology to iOS. Today we are announcing Figment’s arrival!

    You play as Dusty, the human mind’s representation of courage. Recent experiences have disrupted its balance. As you delve deeper into the human subconscious, you will fight nightmares – physical representations of traumatic events. Your goal? Well, find the root cause of this turmoil in the mind and restore peace!

    Here’s the trailer for the game that we released some time ago:


    We've been working on the iOS version for some time now, and we're incredibly excited to announce it today!

    There are three points we wanted to explore while making the game: adventure, puzzle-solving and musical elements. Depending on where you are in the mind, your journey will take you from dark and gloomy areas to lighter and more whimsical islands as seen below.

    However, you won’t just be strolling around, theatrical nightmares and enemies will be blocking your path.

    You'll also find puzzles along the way, can't wait for you to discover this beautiful world we've concocted!

    The game is scheduled for late 2019, as we’re still tweaking some features.

    We also wanted to ask, what are the main features you look for in a mobile game? MFI support? Gamecenter? Etc? All ideas are welcome!

    We will also have a testflight build ready soon for those looking to do some beta testing!

    Important feature I always look for in a mobile version is how friendly the game is towards saving.
    I prefer a game that allows you to save the game at any time and then return to that exact position after shutting the device down.
    Long periods between saving (lets say 15-30 minutes) means I probably won’t buy it.

    Controller (Xbox/MFI) and Game Center Save sync support is important to me.

    There are checkpoints all over the place! So in the case of a death or, god forbid, your phone dying you will return to where you were :)

    Back to Bed is my fav. Glade you guys will release a new title on ios. I think you should also focus on control support. Now we have three: mfi ps4 and xbox controller. And also let the players customise the control too. I am sold by this game artwork already. Anyway, will this be a premium game or listed in Apple Arcade? I am a casual player and I prefer to pay upfront. Either way, i will try this game.

    Hey Makara Nou!

    Glad you enjoyed Back to Bed so much, it always warms my heart to hear such things. As for controllers, there will be an update on that very soon.

    For Figment, you can get the full game right from the start or play the first chapter and get the rest of the game through a one time purchase. The reasoning behind that is to give a chance to people who might be unfamiliar with our titles to give the game a shot. That said, the game operates as a premium title, no ads, no microtransactions.

    Apple Arcade is only for new games, that have to launch on that platform first, which doesn't apply to Figment.

    I hope that answers your questions! If you have any more I'd be glad to help :)

    Hey hey people, how are you all doing?

    We were made aware of several things that we've fixed such as:
    - white blocks when hitting
    - some framerate issues (however this depends on the device you're using, Figment is quite demanding)

    Ui update.gif controller play.gif

    That said, I come bearing updates of what we're working on:
    - MFI, PS4 and xbox controller support (MFI and PS4 are working but not finished, you can try it out!)
    - UI changes when connecting a controller (see gif 1)
    - gamecenter and cloud support

    How has playing through the game been going? I'd like to hear your thoughts on it!

    Also, if more people want to test shoot me a message!
