Please Help Us Greenlight Go To Bed on Steam!

We keep joking that the postmortem for Go To Bed: Survive The Night could basically be a photo of us all facepalming in front of a  computer screen with a giant middle finger on it. The past month has been a gauntlet of disasters and obstacles, but we’ve finally got the core game finished and are pushing hard to get it Greenlit on Steam, which is an uphill battle that we’re slowly but surely making progress on.

We’re planning to launch both the PC version of the game (in its Beta state with ongoing updates) alongside the iOS version sometime next month before Halloween. While both games will have the same main campaign and a few common bonuses, we’re adding a ton of additional content to the core PC version as well as a few unique extras to the mobile edition. Basically, both games will have cool extras unique to their respective platforms.

We’ve got LOTS of plans to roll out bonus content, including an extra campaign, unlockable challenge modes, and more for the PC version (and a few secret extra for the iOS version too). But we’re bootstrapping this game and really need to get some funds coming in to be able to make that happen without going broke. Which we are.

That’s where we REALLY need your help, ASAP. As of this writing, we’ve got about 359 yes votes for our game on Steam’s Greenlight page. We need more like 8000+ to make it into the rankings to get approved, and we need to hit that number as fast as possible. If you’re on Steam, please pop on over to our Greenlight page and hit YES! It’s that simple, and we can’t launch the early access PC version on Steam without your support.

We will, however, be making PC game preorders avail through out site soon, bundled with the game’s soundtrack and some other goodies. In addition to being able to download the beta and play it immediately, we’ll give out free steam keys (once we’re Greenlit and launch a Steam edition) to anyone who pre-orders the game through us directly. So watch for that in the coming weeks!

Thanks for the help! Please spread the word and don’t hesitate to get in touch!

 

Behind The Scenes @TouchfightGames – Arting with Len!

Over the past few weeks we’ve been making steady progress on our first game Go To Bed, and we  hope to have a big update and gameplay footage for you all very soon! In the meantime, we asked our lead artist Len to whip up some behind-the-scenes stuff on how he does the cool hand-drawn art for Go To Bed.  Here’s what he came up with!

Official trailer for our gaming debut “Go To Bed”

Today we’re excited to formally kick off the studio and announce our first game, Go To Bed, which will headed to iOS (iPad, and iPhone) this fall. We’ve been hard at work on our first few projects, and we can’t wait to put what we’ve been working on in your hands.

So what is Go To Bed exactly? It’s a creepy “bedroom defense” game that mixes Len’s beautiful hand-drawn art style and a children’s storybook vibe with a darker, more warped gameplay spin. Evil wants to touch you. You have to touch it first. Tap, swipe, and prod the dark shadowy creatures that encroach upon your dimply lit bedroom in increasing numbers…if you want to survive the night. It starts off simple enough, but Jon and I are layering on new foes, mechanics, and power-ups that ramps up in intensity the longer you play.

We hope to have the game out in time for Halloween, but failing that, you’ll definitely have a chance to go hands-on with Go To Bed in the very near future. Stay tuned!
