Dream Alone, the macabre 2D puzzle platformer from Fat Dog Games and WarSaw Games where players can manipulate reality, is out today on Nintendo Switch and Steam for PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow in Q4 2018.
Skillfully avoid traps and monsters lurking in the darkness and face challenging boss battles over the course of Dream Alone’s frightening levels. Swap between hellish alternate realities to look for hidden paths or slow down time and create clones to overcome formidable obstacles.
Dream Alone is a grim fairy tale in which a mysterious illness creeps through a once pleasant village, sending its unfortunate inhabitants into a deep coma. A small boy whose parents have fallen victim to the disease must venture into the dark unknown of whispering woods, ghost towns and howling caves to seek out the mythical sorceress Lady Death, his only hope of finding a cure for this wicked plague.
Inspired by classic, silent black and white German expressionist films, Dream Alone illustrates a haunting world through the grayscale camera lens of these old-school horror favorites. Chilling sounds from the award-winning Dream Alone composer, Paweł ‘Fleczer’ Flanc, complete the experience with dark, hauntingly beautiful tunes that will cause one to think twice about turning off the lights.
“We wanted to capture the atmosphere of classic horror, and the Fleczer’s music instantly transports players into the game,” said Darek Skrzypkowski, CEO, Fat Dog Games. “Dream Alone is a fairy tale for players to take part in, with mysteries to uncover in the grand tradition of folklore.”
Dream Alone is currently available on Nintendo Switch as well as PC via Steam for $9.99 USD and supports English with subtitles available in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish and Japanese.
