Spring Roll Update

28 Marzo 2014

Citizen!

We've just released an update that improves the game in several ways. Not the meatiest of updates, we agree, but it represents yet another small step towards inevitable gaming perfection.

So without further ado, here's the change list:

• Engine: Optimized depth sorting
• Engine: Fixed inventory sliding bug
• Chapter 1: Fixed burned note freeze bug
• Chapter 2: Fixed graphical issue in Mr Morton's dream
• Chapter 2: Swapped lens graphics to hand-made equivalents
• Chapter 1 & 2: Upgraded graphical assets to high-resolution versions

As always, don't be shy if you encounter something strange or buggy in the game.

Cheers,

Beef Supreme Update

26 Febbraio 2014

We've just released another update to delight and amuse you. It contains a little bit of everything - reminiscent of what we in Sweden call a "Smörgåsbord". My personal favourite is the additional reading aid cues you can get if you have problems reading small text. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not afflicted, but it's always fun to play around with voice synthesizers. I think it's strange that more games don't have such features.

Oh well. Enough ranting.

• Engine: Addressed general stability issues
• Engine: Optimized depth sorting
• Game: Tweaked UI
• Game: Added reading aid cues (Steam PC version only)
• Chapter 1: Reinserted high-resolution guitar (due to overwhelming popular demand)
• Chapter 1: Tweaked elevator buttons
• Chapter 4: Tweaked recipe puzzle

8/10 - Eurogamer

The Dream Machine è un’avventura grafica episodica che va avanti da novembre 2011. Pian piano gli sviluppatori di questo gioco – creato interamente a mano con cartoni e materiale riciclabile (oltre al pongo pongoso) – hanno pubblicato fino a oggi ben quattro capitoli su sei della loro storia. Si tratta di un gioco dalle tinte filo-thriller con una spruzzata di fantascienza, in cui verrete facilmente catturati a partire dal secondo capitolo (il primo è quasi un tutorial), per poi perdervi con i successivi. Come già detto precedentemente, nelle recensioni dei primi due e del terzo capitolo, il team svedese ne sa a pacchi: già a partire dalla realizzazione pratica, sono rimasto sorpreso e colpito per il grandissimo lavoro effettuato, anche considerando il fatto che, almeno per le ultime avventure del panorama, l’occhio viene fortemente coccolato o da una grafica aggiornata, o da un gusto retrò. The Dream Machine va un po’ contro entrambe, offrendo la sua particolare scelta senza sfigurare minimamente.

La gemma che non ti aspetti. Un'avvenutura con ottimi enigmi, varia pur proponendo un numero limitato di luoghi da visitare e con stile a badilate. Mancano ancora due capitoli, ma già grido al (piccolo) capolavoro.

Giocatelo, assorbitelo, fatelo vostro, il vostro subconscio ringrazierà.

Menzione speciale per la colonna sonora, potentemente onirica, dolcemente catartica, in grado di trasportare molto lontano...

Fuori.

Great adventure game! Puzzles can be frustrating but are really well thought through and that just makes them more satisfying to complete! Really unique and good looking art style, and an immersive attention to detail that puts you in the story

The Dream Machine is, by far, one of the most complicated adventure games I've ever played.

You play as a man who has just moved with his wife to a new apartment. Something is amiss, however, and soon you learn that you'll have to take it upon yourself to stop a sinister plot where your dreams, and the dreams of all the apartment residents, are being infiltrated by your land lord and his out of control contraption. The graphics are marvelously creepy, being claymation, and the soft ambeint music and horror-like storyline set the scene for a truly challenging adventure that will have you immersed for hours.

Game play wise, I will say that some of the puzzles may be easy to solve in a few minutes, and other may take hours, or even days, depending on your thought process and how you deal with puzzles. There are puzzles for all types of people, so while I certainly don't suggest that you cheat, it's always fun to team up on this game. Some of the game play can get slightly monotonous while you're stuck, which can be frustrating. (But such is the bane of adventure games.) There were also a few times where I thought I was supposed to be trying to solve a puzzle to unlock something, but it wasn't time for that in the story yet. Still, when things become clear, it's easy to sit down and focus on the puzzle intently.

The story line is creepy and unsettling. It is not a full out horror tale, but at times it can be graphic and disturbing. It also moves slowly towards the disturbing, and as you get further into the plot it becomes stranger.

This IS the sort of adventure game where you may need to keep some scrap paper beside you in order to jot down notes and figure things out. If you are not into complicated adventure games, then this is not for you. But if you are, then welcome to The Dream Machine.
