It's not just free for a limited time, if you grab it now then it's yours to keep forever!

I've not played it myself and it doesn't look like my preference, so I don't have much to say. Just a little tip so you don't miss out on a free game that might brighten up your week.

The game was released back in 2014 and it came with a same-day Linux release, so that was great. Thanks to it being free for for 48 hours, the game has hit a massive all time high of 15,829 people playing it right now — insane!

About the game:

Back to Bed is an artistic 3D puzzle game with a surreal twist. It tells the story of Bob, an unlucky narcoleptic who has a tendency of falling asleep in his boring office and then proceeding to sleepwalk into the dangers of the big city. Luckily, Bob has a subconscious guardian named Subob, whom spawns from the mind of Bob and whose job it is to protect the sleepwalker from any danger and guide him back to the safety of his bed.

While it looks nice, turning right (or was it left?) until you arrive where you want to go doesn't make a puzzle game. Keyboard/mouse control was awful, and the computer generated voice would have been better left out. No, just no.

I don't think the voice is computer generated, but rather backward talking played in reverse (for example like Twin Peaks).

I played it some time ago. Finished a normal and nightmare run in about three hours. Not really one to hurt your brain.

That's cool, I like puzzle games. I mean, this is essentially an "advertisement" for Figment, their new game coming out in a few days. Still, a free puzzle game is appreciated.

Man that was a freaky scene. The whole Black Lodge stuff was just out there.
