Dreamed Away Kickstarter campaign for the action adventure RPG game is coming for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. To bolster the efforts of developer Nicolas Petton, this is due to provide essential support. Then eventually makes its way onto Steam.

I’m always on the lookout for fresh and engaging titles on Linux. Dreamed Away caught my attention in April 2023, and I’m here to share my thoughts on it and the upcoming Kickstarter.

First off, this project is the creation of French developer Nicolas Petton and is being brought to life with the support of Polish indie publisher Pineapple Works. Dreamed Away is kicking off its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on February 1st, 2024. This is a big step for any indie project, as crowdfunding can be the make or break moment.

The title itself is a pixel art action adventure RPG, and it’s clear that it draws inspiration from iconic titles like Earthbound and Omori. But what makes it stand out is its setting – France in the 90s. This is also something you don’t see every day in this genre. There’s a nostalgic charm to it, especially for those who appreciate the era.

You step into the shoes of Théo, a little boy lost in a world that feels like a dream but is tinged with dark and mysterious elements. The storyline kicks off on a rainy summer night when Théo finds himself alone, his family missing. The narrative unfolds in crypts and other eerie locations as Théo searches for his sister, adding a psychological horror aspect to the adventure.

Even the Kickstarter due out soon, the Dreamed Away artistic approach deserves a mention. The pixel art is not just functional; it’s detailed, and aesthetic, and uses a varied color palette. This carefully transitions from vibrant and peaceful to dark and mysterious. This visual storytelling enhances the overall experience.

Gameplay wise, it promises a deep and fast-paced combat system. This includes mini-games that blend turn-based strategy, bullet dodging, and unique time-based QTEs. It sounds like a dynamic approach that will keep players engaged. Plus, the absence of random encounters is a thoughtful touch, likely making for a more streamlined and less frustrating experience.

Lastly, with the added help of Kickstarter, the Dreamed Away soundtrack by Nicolas Petton is something I’m personally looking forward to. Music in such games can be a powerful tool for setting the mood and building the narrative.
