A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

INTO A DREAM is a  2D adventure, focused on narrative, characters and exploration. You play as John Stevens, who wakes up inside the mind / dreams of a man who is suffering from depression, Luke Williams, and is told that he was sent there to find him, understand his story, and help him to take the first step out to treatment.


You will help John dig through Luke's dreams non-linearly, past and future, where memories are mixed with fantasy and symbolism, meet his close family and friends and unfold the heartbreaking, powerful and emotional journey of his life.


You're his last hope.





Although not with a definite date yet, the game is schedule to release in Q2 of 2020 and it's already in the latest stages of development! If you want to be up to date please follow on Twitter (https://twitter.com/IntoADreamGame) or Discord (discord.gg/eUcVpEU)!


YOU CAN NOW WISHLIST INTO A DREAM ON STEAM @ https://store.steampowered.com/app/1238360/Into_A_Dream/ :D

THE DEMO VERSION IS NOW OUT! :) 

IMPORTANT: VSync is ON by default, but it seems to highly decrease performance in some computers where VSync is not needed at all. Mainly if you're on a WINDOWS and are experiencing some slowness, please deactivate VSync! :)

If you tried the demo out and want to say anything about it,  either what you found good or bad about the game, what makes the game worth it or what needs to be improved, please do it in our Discord, Twitter (links above) or to intoadreamgame@gmail.com . All feedback is highly appreciated and am eager to listen to it all so I can with it improve the game as a whole!


If for some reason the game is not running properly in your computer, or is somewhat slow or with not a very good performance, please let me know so I can look into it. If possible and you can, please provide also some information about the system you're using, such as OS, RAM, Graphics Card, etc. I sincerely apologize in advance if this happens to some of you, or if any major bug arises. There is still a lot of optimization and perfecting to be done, and I believe that the feedback is going to be vital to mitigate most of them until the release date. Thanks for understanding! :)


Into A Dream has, until now, a planned release for PC and Mac on Steam and the VoxPop Games platform (a new indie platform scheduled to be released in the following months). If you liked what you've seen of the game, and want to be up to date with news, developments, release date, wishlisting, etc, please join us in any of the social media (Twitter, Discord, Facebook, Instagram) through intoadreamgame.  I am most active on the first two, however major announcements will be posted in all!


   


Have a great day and thank you so so much for your support!! :)

Thanks! And awesome work there, btw! :)

Really nice game, great particles and lighting, toping it off with an awesome intro music👍😁 although i think the dialoue is a bit too small. 

Thanks! :D The dialogue has been already tweaked a bit, with slightly larger font and easier to read. :) Happy tou liked it!

Finally got to play the demo... something tells me things are going to get a lot darker quick. Had some issues in the platforming parts but overall things were okey.

Hello! Thank you so much! :D And I glad you enjoyed it. As for the platforming parts, from what I saw, mainly the chain right? That has been 'fixed', or at least is now much easier to move across, as a lot of people had issues there. :) Thanks for your feedback.

Yeah, the chains were a little tricky... but passable. Do you have a release date for IAD? :)

Good! So now it should be a little better :) I don't officially, should come out this or next week! :)

A wonderful game with rich voice acting,a great sound track and a brilliant art style. The game was an absolute pleasure to play one of the main annoyances with the game was the chain swing even if you are holding right it went left , could just be me but it made for a slightly annoying task.

 All in all a really good game with deep and meaningful story line , the game leaves you wanting to know more it will be interesting to see what other stories are told when the game is developed more.

Hello! :) 

First of all many thanks for testing the game out! And I'm really glad you enjoyed it! As for the remark you made, it's dully noted! Actually, I have already made some changes to the game based on feedback received from the demo, and I made the 'chain' task easier to go through and will polish that mechanic for the final release!


Thank you so much for the feedback! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

good

Thank you! :) And I see you actually ran into a problem! It sometimes happen when skipping some lines in dialogue (it probably won't be allowed in the final game per default). After talking to the man, you should've been able to enter the house, and there's still a whole level you could play (Also accessible through level selection). :)
