You have downloaded your very own [dreamsearch] console. This device will allow you to record your dreams. But why would anyone do that? It is because you can sell these dreams and generate profit. And the best part? None of the emoluments will carry income tax.

The system has seen that you are about to embark on a dream labelled as [citrus sea].  More instructions will be available once you boot up the console.

Sweet dreams

Pretty cool :) I had a bit of trouble pulling off wall jumps, but the play-experience more than made up for it :!

(1 edit)

Thank you so much for playing!

I wanted it to be somewhat challenging so I made a lot of the challenges based on the wall jump. I'm very glad you liked it ^_^

This was a cool, strangely atmospheric game! Will there be more of it?

Hi there, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! This game was made for a game jam, hence why the content is fairly small.

There are no current plans to make more but if I had to return to any of my games, dreamsearch would be my top choice. 

It's definitely a future possibility :)
