December Updates

Citizen!

We're trying out a new format for these updates. Usually we drop these updates in one big chunk at the end of the month, but during launches it's better to fix problems continuously. So we'll be adding to this list throughout December.

Below you'll find the contents of each update as we release them.

Update #1 (2014-12-02):
• Engine: Added 'Sound Sequence' task command
• Chapter 2: Fixed anvil placement issues
• Chapter 2: Fixed invisible anvil bug
• Chapter 5: Removed Selma's erroneous mention of home invasion
• Chapter 5: Fixed the northern cube getting stuck with prism rod
• Chapter 5: Made sure the beam bridge draws correctly
• Chapter 5: Fixed re-entery issue from Willard's void space

Update #2 (2014-12-05):
• Chapter 5: Fixed freeze bug when removing prism from northern cube
• Chapter 5: Added failsafe timer to Jerome's stomach

Update #3 (2014-12-09):
• Chapter 5: Fixed prism rod size issue

Update #4 (2014-12-13):
• Chapter 5: Fixed issue with sounds fading in too fast
• Chapter 5: Reworked sound loading, hopefully making the game less crash prone

Update #5 (2014-12-16):
• Chapter 5: Tweaked some text descriptions
• Chapter 5: Added interactions

We hope you like it and shout out in the comments if you encounter anything strange/buggy in the game.

Cheers,

This game is ridiculously good - so much so that I'm actually writing a review. Please PLEASE do yourself a favor and buy it - even full price! It's more than worth it.

I won't go in detail into game mechanics and whatnot (other reviews do the mechanics justice) but suffice it to say the claymation is well-done, the puzzles are interesting and often challenging, and the plot is very engaging. It's a great story! And while it's not a "scary" game, it is a deliciously disturbing one (I mean, it's based on dreams, of course it's gonna be disturbing, especially in the later chapters. I guess I'd say it's a similar feeling as watching one of Tim Burton's films, but with more blood, and a slightly more mature rating.) The only downside to this game is having to wait for the 6th chapter to come out. Rambling aside, 2 thumbs way waaaay up.

The Dream Machine : A game made of materials such as clay and cardboard. Catchy, ain't it? Sufficient enough to draw one's attention.

The Dream Machine marks a rekindling of passion for the point'n click genre and holds a special place in my heart. Need no more than a little bit of imagination, some raw materials along with great crafting skills...The whole coupled with technology and the result is this fantastic game.

You play as Victor Neff, a young fellow who has just moved to a new appartment with his wife Alicia Neff. Not long after settling down, Victor and his wife will soon notice that something wrong is happening in the building. Not to mention the landlord, who is quite peculiar...

Won't say too much but I think at this point, you know it has something to do with dreams. Some kind of a "Dream machine". You guessed right! You will have to EXPLORE people's dream.The game is divided into 6 chapters, each one involving a new tenant, sometimes more and their dreams, of course; each one bringing its share of surprises, different from one another. About to finish Chapter 5 released not long ago and still another final chapter to come.

Make no mistake, this game is not intended for a young public but well and truly for a rather mature audience. Don't get fooled by the childish look of this one. Exciting plot and storyline. Look forward to seeing the ending in chapter 6.

The Dream Machine is offering a real challenge without being too hard. Like similar point'n click games, it can be quite frustrating after a while when you have no idea what to do. You need to use your mind, but I'm not telling you anything new. Ask youself a lot of questions (ok, this squirrel use a wheel as a door to protect his treasure in a tree, you need the wheel but the squirrel won't give it to you. He needs all the reinforcement to protect his treasure. What could you give him in exchange for the wheel?), care with the little details...clues might be everywhere, EVERYWHERE. You may, if you're too desperate go on the internet checking for the answer but you'll be dubbed as a quitter. What I usually do when I have no clue, is to quit the game and come back to it later, giving me the time to wrap my head around it. I have that sort of pride when managed to succeed all by myself.

Apart from the puzzle part, the game is noticeable for the great work that the developpers put into it. You will be fully immersed into this well-crafted, lively world. Also important to point out that this game was made by two guys, two "sexy Swedish nerds" named Erik Zaring and Anders Gustafsson. I am still amazed to see how one can bring something to life, I mean literally.

Assuming that you play this game while knowing anything, it may last long...very long. All depends on your ability to resolve puzzle.

This is my way of saying thanks. Also, feel free to check out their site, at least to enjoy their work.

This is definitely one of my favorite games. It's a point-and-click made with stop motion effects and it looks excellent. The stop motion is far from a gimmick as it adds so much atmosphere to the experience. The puzzles aren't going to break your brain, but they will slow you down for a bit and make you think. The story is fascinating and well-delivered. I played and completed up to the third chapter (that's all there was at the time) and haven't gone back, because I want to play the entire experience once it's finished. Let me tell you, waiting is painful.

If you're a fan of point-and-click adventures or are just looking for a different kind of game, this is for you. You won't be disappointed.

One of the best games I've ever played. You just have to give it a go. Amazing atmosphere of gloom and downfall, unique look and... I don't know... It feels different. This game is pure art.

The claymation intrigued me, so I decided to dive right in.The point-and-click is essential to this game. Your main goal is to explore and find solutions. The game gives you just enough of information to figure out the puzzles on your own without being too ridiculously difficult. Sometimes you'll get stuck, but don't abandon the game. Take a break for about half an hour and try again. A solution will be found.
I love the claymation because it is clearly a labor-intensive gamestyle, but very very worth it. The dialogue can become a bit repetitive, but the story is woven in very well with real life dream theories. If you don't like puzzles, this is not the game for you. This is also not for the faint of heart. There are some very disturbing scenes in this claymation universe.

I really enjoyed this point and click game: It has a clever story, stunning images and leaves you with a bittersweet feeling. I just played the first 3 chapters so I actually don't know how it ends, but I would already recommend it to anyone who likes casual games with a fantastic plot (that maybe could pass for sci-fi). It also has some pretty weird/heavy scenes but since it is all made with cardboard and clay it doesn't really scare anyone but absolutely creates an atmosphere of hopelessness.

Oh boy, would I recommend The Dream Machine. I've just recently gotten into point-and-clicks and I think this just set a high standard and it's going to be hard to find a game that beats it. The wait for Chapter 6 is going to be painful, especially because the devs post teasers on their Twitter. As an artist, this is a game to appreciate, and as someone who enjoys 'darker' art, it's a smorgasbord.

Reasons why you need it:
+ Devs are very responsive to cries for help with glitches
+ Art style is incredible and obviously takes a lot of work
+ Puzzles are really tough
+ Puzzles are innovative and different
+ Chapter format makes it easier to appreciate in moderation instead of doing a binge
+ It's easy to binge

There are some little glitches here and there, but your love for the game will overpower them. Community for this game is great as well. There are no cons, really. Although, I would love to see some dynamic backgrounds.

The dream machine is the one of the best point and click games I have played in a long time. The puzzles are enjoyable. The art style is very original and memorable. The atmosphere is a little creepy(in a good way),and the musical style fits in well with the atmosphere. A little about the game in general , chapter one is very basic in approach getting used to how the puzzles are.Chapter two and later is where it starts getting really interesting and the dreams become more fun to enter into. If you are looking for something new and interesting try this title out.

Upon first seeing this game in the Steam store I was intrigued. The claymation art style really got my attention. I decided to take a risk and buy, and I'm so glad I did. The story is orginal and creative, the puzzles are challenging but not impossible, and the game overall is eery and very atmospheric. I can't wait for chapters 5 and 6 to see what happens next.

Edit: Chapter 5 has been released, I'll update this review once I finish it.

I don't play adventure games very often because I'm tired of all those stupid puzzles where you have to join more and more absurd items together to get even more absurd item...

But The Dream Machine is different. It's 100% logical. It's rewarding. It's mesmerizing. It's mysterious.

I love the graphics, I love the music and sounds, I love this game. Diamond among ordinary stones.

I've just finished chapter 5 and I can't wait for the final one!

I called the removal man in-game in a surveillance room while spying on him on a monitor and watched on the monitor (one of nine on screen at the time) as he actually picked up the phone and answered. It wasn't even part of the plot. The attention to detail is immense and admirable.
The puzzles are often difficult but not impossible, the tone is both dark and comic. I haven't been this impressed with a pure, puzzle solver point and click game since Grim Fandango and Monkey Island.
If this sounds anything like something you might like, give it a shot. As many people have already said, it deserves more recognition.

Excellent original game, it will have you clicking/guiding a clay man around for weeks if you're not up to scratch on problem solving & out of the box thinking. If you want to gain some IQ or troubleshooting skills then take a crack at this.

Excellent point-and-click adventure. The first couple of chapters were a little slow to start with but it was worth waiting for the later chapters, and it's definitely worth playing through until the end. The choice of using a style like claymation results a very unique environment and required a huge amount of effort on the part of the developers besides, and it shows. Localization is good. If I had to nitpick, it would have been nice to have recap of each chapter since I was playing new chapters after a few months' wait, but nothing's stopping me from just replaying the previous chapters. A few bugs in the later chapters but nothing game-breaking. Two tentacles way, way up!

A really nice adventure game that's just emanating the love of the devs have for making it. This is clear in that its all made in claymation which is notorious for being painstaking as hell and it shows, the first episode of this game came out like four years ago. It looks really atmospheric and eerily beautiful because of the claymotion though so its totally worth it.The game's also nicely written with a likable cast and a morally gray antagonist. Some of the puzzles can be obtuse and pixel-hunty, but they're mostly fine. Definitely deserves more love and hopefully the last episode comes out next year. (A fun little bit trivia I learned was the dev for this made Gateway 2, a flash game I played years back that I thought was neat.)

The more demanding puzzles were the best I've ever seen in a video game. They were never frustrating, I didn't feel the need to search for hints online and yet there's no hand holding involved and it really felt like an accomplishment to solve them.

The game is really well written, the relationships and interactions are simple but feel genuine. The atmosphere is unique, creepy and weird, in the best of ways.

I recommend this game to everyone, not only to point & click fans, I enjoy it despite not liking this genre much.
