Finally, a video game that encourages me to be lazy..

Remember a few years back when everyone went crazy for "Pokemon Go" for a month?  Well the game is finally getting a sequel and....let's just say it's not what you'd expect.

It's called "Pokemon Sleep".  And to "play" it, you just go to sleep.  That's it.

It looks like the game measures how long you sleep for and how deep you sleep, and based on those results, you'll wake up in the morning with Pokemon characters as rewards.

The company behind it says, quote, "In 2016, 'Pokemon Go' turned the simple act of walking into entertainment....we're about to do it again, this time, for sleeping."

I guess it's a noble goal to try to convince people to sleep more....but will that make for a fun game?  I guess we'll find out.

"Pokemon Sleep"is set to come out next year.
