The Dream first person puzzle project seeks funding on Kickstarter for Linux and Windows PC. Thanks to the creative efforts of developer Tanja Leonova. Now releasing the crowdfunding campaign for this surreal gameplay experience.
The Dream is in crowdfunding to help finish the first commercial title. The Dream is a first person game about adventure and curious puzzles. But seeks funding to raise €28,000 ($33,965 USD) by March 2nd, 2021.
The Dream is quite simple – everything you need to do is just walk around and enjoy yourself. Including both a day and night cycle. Where players are due to encounter surprises at almost every step. While searching for clues and solve puzzles. Or maybe it may not be that simple after all.
