The future of Sleeping Dawn

Hello guys,

news in Sleeping Dawn will never stop. We open this discussion in the community because we want your collaboration to better define the future of Sleeping Dawn. Your feedback is very important and we want to anticipate the times by asking first your opinion on the news that we intend to bring to you.

We want to emphasize the competitive nature of Sleeping Dawn.

We will balance the difficulty level of the game (on one side for the singleplayer and on the other side for the multiplayer mode): in this way we will inhibit the possibility to select the difficulty and consequently customize the timer (don't worry it will not be a short time!). We want to create a "common standard" that will suit for all of you: right size of the maze, adequate number of enemies, reformulation of the timer.

What we want to introduce in the future of the game are the world leaderboards (one for singleplayer and one for multiplayer mode) of every game played at Sleeping Dawn in which will be shown the players who have managed to complete the challenge and the time taken to escape from the maze. Who will be able to escape from the maze first?

We are already adding to the backlog the various steps that will bring leaderboards to you and we are estimating costs and development times. We will update you as soon as we receive your first feedback and, above all, tips from you. We want to create a unique and personalized gaming experience directly to your needs.

What do you think? What would you like to see in the future of Sleeping Dawn? Write it in the comments below.

About This Game

Sleeping Dawn is a first person survival horror game in which you will play as some kids who have awakened in a grotesque world populated by creatures, mirror of their deeper fears. Dive yourself into this purely dark atmosphere and fight to dominate your unconscious fears.

Procedural maze
Get ready to face this huge procedurally-made maze by looking for the exit. Each single game will be different from the previous one because, at your awakening, the maze will change all the paths.
  • Losing your way is as easy as losing your companions. Splitting the group is never an easy choice, but sometimes it may be necessary.
  • Keep in your mind where you are and be careful on each way you chose: even the right one is full of obstacles. Dark creatures and obscure presences will threaten your journey: facing them or avoiding them is your decision.
  • You will have 4 tools: distribute them based on your play-style but use them with caution because each is a double edge weapon.
  • Learn from the mistakes you make, keep your fears down, study your enemies and cooperate with your friends because your target is the same: manage to escape from this gloomy maze.

But remember... Time is your worst enemy: you have only few minutes to solve the mistery of the maze and find the exit.
