Back to Bed Releasing For OUYA On October 7

OUYA has announced that Back to Bed will be releasing on the console on October 7th for $3.99. The game follows the misadventures of Bob in a world that is like a fever dream of intense action and strange surroundings. Are you ready to learn more? Read on.


From the Press Release
OUYA today announced that, following successful Android, iOS and PC launches, the IGF Student Showcase-winning surrealist puzzler Back to Bed is coming to OUYA on October 7 for $3.99. Back to Bed is like a fever dream of Salvador Dali on sleeping pills: the lines that comprise your world bend and twist into impossible shapes; a strange, inhuman voice yowls cryptic messages in your direction; and nothing is ever as it seems.


Back to Bed follows the misadventures of Bob, an unusually active narcoleptic who regularly falls asleep on the job and then sleepwalks out of his office, stepping blindly into the dangers of the big city. Players will take on the role of Subob, the green quadrupedal manifestation of Bob’s subconscious, in its desperate mission to keep its corporeal body alive. Subob must navigate detailed, physics-defying 3D levels, and use its wits (and environmental elements) to detour Bob around countless dangers – everything from precarious cliffsides to aggressive alarm clocks to gaping maws slavering up out of the ground, hungry for Bob’s blood.

The game’s unique art style is inspired by history’s favorite surrealists: the game features Salvador Dali’s obsession with time, Magritte’s iconic green apple, and Escher’s impossible lines and angles, all seamlessly combined into the ultimate dreamscape.

2K has revealed brand-new details for MyCareer in WWE 2K15. Players will be taken through the journey as a WWE Superstar in MyCareer and allow them to experience what it takes to start out as a rookie and make your way to winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Read on.

From the Press Release
2K today announced additional details for MyCareer in WWE 2K15, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE video game franchise. Making its debut as the first comprehensive, career-driven mode in WWE games history, MyCareer will take players through the life of a prospective WWE Superstar, allowing them to experience the journey of being a rookie and working toward the ultimate goal of winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.


Players will begin MyCareer by taking characters they create in WWE 2K15’s Creation Suite to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. While there, they will be trained by former WWE Superstar and WWE Performance Center head coach Bill DeMott, as they navigate a series of objectives. Successful completion of the objectives will lead players to compete at NXT, WWE’s developmental system for rising young talent, where they will continue with matches and new objectives. At NXT, they will encounter a roster of new and future WWE Superstars, including Rusev, Bo Dallas, Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn and Corey Graves, all of whom will also be available as playable characters.

After mastering their skills in NXT, players will move up to WWE’s main roster, where General Manager Vickie Guerrero will set matches and keep her Superstars focused through ultimatums designed to gain bonus rewards. Players will develop alliances and rivalries while competing to win spots on WWE pay-per-view events and flagship shows like Monday Night Raw and SmackDown. They will also compete for the United States Championship and Intercontinental Championship. Successful players will make their way to SummerSlam and WrestleMania, where the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line as the top MyCareer prize.

Decisions made throughout the WWE developmental process, including alliances, rivalries and social media interactions, will impact player personality traits and crowd reactions. As players progress throughout the mode, they will also have opportunities in-game to upgrade their attributes, acquire new abilities, skills and moves, earn new clothing and unlock managers. These decisions, along with a player’s win/loss record, will lead to multiple branching storylines, surprises, twists and turns that offer significant replay value to explore different career paths.

“MyCareer is a mode beloved by our NBA 2K fans and is a perfect fit for WWE 2K15,” said Greg Thomas, President at Visual Concepts. “We are eager to deliver a comprehensive career mode experience for the first time and consider its inclusion a critical step forward for the franchise.”

Developed collaboratively by Yuke’s and Visual Concepts, a 2K studio, WWE 2K15 is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. WWE 2K15 is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft on October 28, 2014 in North America and October 31, 2014 internationally. In addition, releases for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, are currently scheduled for release on November 18, 2014 in North America and November 21, 2014 internationally. Fans who pre-order WWE 2K15 at any participating retailer will receive two playable Sting characters at no extra cost on launch day.
