Amy is a small town vet, and her entire world comes crashing down with the death of Thomas, her estranged brother. Thomas’ obsession with lucid dreaming intrigues Amy, and she begins to delve into his research. It causes her dreams to distort and twist, making her wonder if Thomas was on to something and whether he actually died. The pixel-art visuals create a phantasmagorical and terrifying dream realm. Use your smarts and will to survive to overcome obstacles and solve puzzles, and literally fight your fears in turn-based battles.
Improve Amy’s skills and learn new ones to help her survive. Multiple endings and secrets ensure some replayability, and the full-length adventure will allow you to use Amy’s dream-shaping abilities to see her journey through to the end.
