Dream Detective has landed on Steam, Android, and iOS. Players will find themselves in a world of dreams, where they will “experience the child-like joy of looking for and finding objects”. The dreams are built from memories and thoughts, so the game uses a rather unique art style to reflect its strange locales. For example, the press release says none of the characters you’ll meet have a face. Dream Detective has 12 large levels, each with their own themes, as well as uncommon artwork. They also have hidden scenes where players can discover over 300 tributes to classic stories.

When players have gotten tired of searching for objects, they can take a break to decorate the Dream Castle using the coins they’ve collected. There are also hundreds of mysteries and costumes for players to collect. Naughty elves are all over the game, and they will bring some surprising gifts to the castle. Dream Detective is available on Steam ($7.99), Android, and iOS. There is currently a 10% launch discount on Steam, and the mobile versions are free-to-play with micro-transactions. Here is the game trailer:

 

The Super Star level looks like a giant award made of buildings, with 40+ pieces of film history scattered around within it. The Sky Lantern Show sees players float in a brightly lit, ancient sky. The Sakura Blossoming level has you attend a party with a Japanese culture theme. Still other levels include cute animals that will both entertain and perhaps annoy you a bit. The Spotty Dogs level is filled with cute puppies. You’ll have a short time to find exactly the puppies with certain spots. You’ll also see monkeys, pandas, and zebras in the dreamscapes.

The press release says that the game also includes some levels that have special significance. For example, in The Crossroads of Life, players will meet and identify people with depression and learn about supporting them, while another level has players working to protect endangered animals. You can of course find out more about the game at the Dream Detective official website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
