INNOVATION IN GAME NOMINEE
Figment is a musical adventure, which dwelves on topics sur as mental health in an accessible way (even to young people). The music adapts to the player’s actions in the game and every boss battle is a musical number. The visuals of the game recreate the feel of a painting in a full 3D world.
Game developer: Bedtime Digital Games
Bedtime Digital Games started out as a student production just up to Christmas in 2011. Back then, there was no company, just a large group of students who had made a great game which garnered a lot of attention from local and international press: Back to Bed. Two team members, Klaus and Jonas, saw this as a chance to take Back to Bed to the next level; do a complete professional release and perhaps something more in the long run. A smaller, but more dedicated team was created during the latter half of 2013, and by Christmas 2013 the company was born. A company that would not only finish Back to Bed but with the help of an investment could continue making games, like the recently released Figment.
