VERSION 2.0 UPDATED!

Hi guys, we have finally updated the Free Edition of the game with lots of improvements and fixes.


Here are the full patch notes for the 2.0 update released on November the 21st, 2016.


  • We overhauled the tutorial section to clearly reflect all the changes we made in the new update. All in all, the tutorial should be more clear and more useful than the previous one.
  • A new mechanic has been added to the game: in-game tips. Whenever you feel lost or in doubt on what to do next, by pressing a key (Q on Keyboard, B on gamepad) you’ll receive a small tip contextualized as one of the character thoughts. This should hopefully make the game easier to understand.
  • Made a lot of improvements to the character controller: all movements should now be smoother and overall more pleasant.
  • Solved a bug where the cursor would not be locked in the game screen after switching to desktop and switching back in.
  • Changed the Oldman character movement system as some people would get motion sickness. The new system should fix the issue, retaining at the same time the same simulation of the old age view.
  • Solved a game breaking bug in the Positive Dream Kid section where landing on roofs would not work properly.
  • Solved a game breaking bug in the money gathering section in the Positive Dream Adult level where collision with NPCs would send the player flying out of the game world.
  • Sped up some sections of the game which were too long and boring.
  • General bugfixing and frame rate improvement.
  • Major improvements to the user experience.
  • All texts have been overhauled and spelling mistakes have been fixed.

Overall, we focused on making the game much more enjoyable by listening to all of your feedbacks. We hope you’ll enjoy the new update and the new mechanics!

As always we are listening to all of your messages and feedbacks, so if you find bugs or if you have some ideas on how you would improve the game, let us know in the comments or in reviews, we do read them all one by one.

The experiences we want to tell about are very different, they go from a quarrel to a dream, and further to more serious topics like death and love. The main point about the game is that every experience will be told through different gameplay mechanics​.​
Also, every playable character has his own specific mechanics and a way to see the world.
The player throughout the game can explore and live different stories and feel a variety of emotions in an amusing and captivating experience.
