A Game About Dreams.

I'm very glad somebody has made a serious and competitive attempt to make a dream-themed game, even if it's an indie game.

"Enter the mind of Howard Phillips, a young man who has developed an obsession with his dreams. Discover unique interactive worlds filled with puzzles, secrets and horrors to find meaning in Howard's direction-less waking life."

I have played the demo, and can confirm that it's really great!

Am I dreaming? Is this a dream?
The next time I am dreaming, I will realise that I am dreaming.

For the record, I doubt this would have been made by a non-indie developer. Sadly, very few high class company's would bother putting a resources into a game of this sort, with little to no actual gameplay. And a big company wouldn't be able to capture the feel or scale of a dream, because their focus would be profit, rather than actually making a good realistic game, putting money into gameplay rather than fine tuning the feel or narrative of the game.
Sorry but as an avid fan of indie games, I just took "Even if it's an indie game" a little seriously, I doubt this game would be half as good if manned by a large corporate company.

All in all, this game is very good. I picked it up a few days ago on steam.

Of course, high class companies like to play it safe by choosing reliable genres to make games on and copying other sucessful games. This dream game is a risky move and I personally don't think it will be a commerical success. Even though I think I will enjoy it when I get it, most people won't be attracted to a game where you can't kill stuff >_>

So true :P Everything is such a copy paste nowadays I have trouble justifying buying an expensive game. Generally I just stick with all of the great indie stuff on steam, cheaper and usually more original.
