A new twin-stick shooter experience is on its way to PC and Nintendo Switch from developer We Are Fuzzy.
The game, Sleep Tight, is scheduled to launch on July 26 and goes beyond standard twin-stick shooter mechanics by adding in base-building elements. The game will also have a large roster of playable characters as well as Mixer functionality that allows viewers to interact with streamers during their broadcasts.
In the game, players choose between a cast of a dozen kids whose bedrooms are assaulted every night by hordes of monsters pouring out from the dark corners of their homes. With an arsenal of toy weapons ranging from dart guns to water balloons, players will need to hold the frightening creatures at bay until sunrise. The base-building comes in when players cash in their piggy banks to establish elaborate pillow forts, construct turrets, and buy various other upgrades that will better help them survive increasingly difficult evenings to come.
"Sleep Tight has been such a special project to work on,” said Maxx Burman, co-founder and creative director at We Are Fuzzy. “While our team has been lucky to work on so many amazing properties over the course of our careers, it’s been amazing to create such a warm, pure, nostalgic experience, and we look forward to sharing it with everyone when we launch this July.”
We Are Fuzzy was founded by Maxx Burman and Banks Boutté in 2017. It boasts a veteran team of Hollywood artists and AAA game designers with experience working on projects such as AMC's The Walking Dead , Hollywood blockbusters including Iron Man and Godzilla, and video games like Far Cry 5 and Dark Souls 2.
