LucasArts - the funky US games developer famous for its work on The Secret of Monkey Island - will release its latest title, Lucidity, on October 7 2009.
Lucidity is a brand new addictive puzzle platform game set in the dreamscapes of a small girl named Sofi. A curious gal, Sofi has a constant desire to discover and explore new worlds while overcoming the many obstacles in her way.
Your goal is to keep Sofi safe, solving puzzles based on quick reactions, and keeping the journey in motion. You'll also pick up useful items on the way, including spring shoes and a slingshot.

"Lucidity comes from our effort at LucasArts to form several small internal development teams and give them the creative freedom to make games that surprise, amaze and inspire," said LucasArts President, Darrell Rodriguez.
"The re-imagining of The Secret of Monkey Island and the development of the all-new Lucidity are just the beginning of this effort."
Famous for adding memorable soundtracks to its adventure games, LucasArts has already drummed up a fair bit of excitement in Lucidity. I'm sure this will appeal to lucid dreamers and puzzle-lovers everywhere.
Lucidity launches on October 7 on XBox Live Arcade and PC (likely via Steam only). To learn more, visit the LucasArts website.
A lot has happened in the last 5 months. But how did we go from business as usual to changing the face of the entire lucid dreaming supplements industry? It’s a story that I think will interest you – and you might even learn a thing or two in the process. When I was first taken on-board as Chief Lucidity Officer in 2016, one of the first things I was tasked with was taking a good look at our operations and giving things a bit of an overhaul.
What is reality? How can we define it - fit it into a box - so that whatever experiments we throw at it, our definition always holds true? I consciously observe the lucid dream world. It is real to me because the firing of neurons in my brain stem are interpreted as real sensory data by my brain. I could argue that lucid dreams constitute part of my reality.
To lucid dream, I recommend being able to remember at least one vivid dream per night. That will boost your self awareness in dreams (making lucidity more likely) and also means you can actually remember your lucid dreams. Which is nice. Here are four detailed tips on how to remember your dreams more frequently. And if you don't think you dream at all - trust me, you almost certainly do. It takes an extraordinarily rare sleep disorder to deprive someone of dream sleep.
Years ago, before I had my first lucid dream, I had a very specific idea about what a lucid dream would feel like. I thought it would be intense and magical and a little bit spooky. This turned out to be a pretty accurate representation. Becoming aware in the dreamstate is like entering another world. One where physical laws can be manipulated (there is no spoon, Neo) and your fantasies can come true in an instant. There's definitely something magical about that - and it's as if the lucid dream world is a living, breathing organism that can react to your very thoughts.
It is estimated that these wise and wily Indians have been using mugwort in their healing and ritual practices for 13,000 years, where it is known as the ‘dream sage’. They use the herb to promote good dreams, which they consider an essential aspect of normal human functioning! But that’s not all...
Experts agree that everyone is capable of having lucid dreams. Dreaming itself is a normal function of the mind. We all dream every night, even if we don't remember. And we all achieve conscious awareness while awake every single day. So what does it mean to combine these states? Why, the amazing ability to have conscious - or lucid - dreams. Sounds simple, doesn't it? So why do I keep hearing from people who say they can't achieve their first lucid dream?
