Cassidy is a woman who finds herself swept away into twisted dream worlds every night. Players will delve into her subconscious mind, as they fend off dark manifestations of her fears. Dreamscaper offers a deep combat system, with unusual weapons like ethereal yo-yos and blazing finger guns! Cassidy must use the power of lucid dreaming to warp space, control time, and manipulate the elements to escape a dark fate. The game goes farther than this, though. During her waking hours, Cassidy can build friendships, which can help her power up and unlock upgrades. All the while, players will uncover her mysterious, troubled past. Here’s the trailer:
Each restless night she battles her inner demons in dungeons full of nightmares. To battle these monsters, she must improve herself by unlocking powerful persistent upgrades. They will be handy when she faces terrible bosses, who are the manifestations of dark and painful emotions, including isolation and loss. The changing dreamscapes she lands in each night reflect her daytime struggles in the real world.
Afterburner Studios co-founder, Ian Cofino, commented on Dreamscaper in the press release:
“It’s been an exciting journey this summer on our road to Early Access, and we’ve been blown away by the response to Dreamscaper in events like the Steam Game Festival, IGN’s Summer of Gaming, and Day of the Devs, Unleashing the game on Steam today is a huge milestone for us and we’re looking forward to hearing more from players as we continue to fine-tune this experience and make Dreamscaper the action RPG of our dreams.”
