Dreamscaper, the new roguelite action RPG from Afterburner Studios and publisher Freedom! Games, has arrived on Steam Early Access. They are celebrating its launch with a 25% launch week discount.

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.”

 

Last but not least, here are some screenshots:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) 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 Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

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.
