October Update

Citizen!

We just pushed another update live. This one contains all kinds of spicy greatness. The most significant change is that the player character now pathfinds competently. That was never really an issue before, since he only had to traverse very simple room geometries. But once we started testing Chapter 5 in earnest, it was obvious the old pathfinding wasn't going to cut the proverbial mustard any more.

Another change you'll be happy to hear about is that most of the freeze issues should now be fixed. Particularly those that occurred on a black screen, between room loads.

The rest of the changes are minor, but delicious. You can read all about them in the list below:

• Engine: Rewrote pathfinding code
• Engine: Fixed freeze on black screen
• Engine: Made sure the Game Menu icon appears properly
• Game: Made sure credits music only plays once
• Game: Refactored soundscape code
• Game: Improved performance while on game menus
• Chapter 1: Tweaked soundscape
• Chapter 1: Added fishing sounds
• Chapter 1: Tweaked Alicia's interaction hotspot
• Chapter 2: Fixed temporary freeze bug when putting the helmets on Alicia
• Chapter 3: Fixed depth sorting issue in cabin 1
• Chapter 3: Fixed door issues on the bridge
• Chapter 4: Fixed freeze bug when you put helmet on mover
• Chapter 4: Removed screen shake while manipulating photos
• Chapter 2 & 4: Added information to the dream map
• Chapter 1, 2, 3 & 4: Redesigned intro sequences
• Chapter 1, 2, 3 & 4: Redesigned credits list

Don't be shy if you find something wonky about the game.

Regarding Chapter 5: We're still testing it and it's going very well. Release date announcement will follow shortly...

Stay tuned.

Рецензии

«Поиграть в нечто вроде The Dream Machine — так изящно построенное, так искусно продуманное, наполненное неповторимой атмосферой — это необычайное удовольствие» — Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

«Эта игра настолько уверенно держится, как в плане сюжета, так и в плане геймплея, что можно запросто забыть, что это труд всего двух независимых разработчиков".
8/10 — Eurogamer

«Сериал, наполненный тайной и очарованием, воспаривший до вершин благодаря причудливому стилю из пластилина и картона, сюрреалистическому сюжету и искреннему вниманию к деталям».
4/5 — Adventure Gamers

Об этой игре

The Dream Machine — отмеченная наградами приключенческая игра в стиле «укажи и щелкни», сделанная из пластилина и картона.



В первой из пяти глав сериала Dream Machine, вы возьмете на себя роль Виктора Неффа, который со своей женой недавно переехал в новую квартиру. В то время, как они пытались обустроиться, обнаруживается, что всё вокруг — в этом тихом непримечательном доме — является не тем, чем кажется на первый взгляд...



Во второй главе Виктор отправляется к своему домовладельцу, мистеру Мортону, чтобы вывести того на чистую воду. Но вместо этого обнаруживает квартиру мистера Мортона пустой. Успеет ли Виктор найти неуловимого домовладельца вовремя, и таков ли этот мистер Мортон, каким кажется на первый взгляд?

Ключевые особенности

  • Мир. Исследуйте жуткий дом и раскройте его тайны. Узнайте ваших соседей и их секреты.
  • Сюжет. Погрузитесь в сознания незнакомцев и тех, кого любите, чтобы попытаться спасти их от Машины сновидений.
  • Графика. Прогуляйтесь по превосходно детализированным окружениям, построенных с помощью реальных пластилиновых моделей и сделанных вручную декораций.
  • Головоломки. Для продвижения по сюжету вам предстоит решить множество головоломок: от самых пустяковых до настоящих задачек для мозга.
  • Музыка. Оригинальное и запоминающееся звуковое сопровождение окутывает повествование, делая акценты на сюрреалистической атмосфере игры.

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.

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.

The amount of mundane gameplay you get for the price is not worth it.

The Dream Machine is simply amazing. A great story told in a perfect medium for it, with such an unexpected progression. Some of the puzzles may seem a bit illogical and dream-like, but when you get them, you feel like a genius.

This is my favorite game on steam. I am not the least bit anxious and very excited for the last two chapters. Also, I recommend this game even at full price.

Pros
- immensly detailed hand made set
- rich atmosphere
- a soundtrack you want to download
- a story that is surreal and beautiful
- originality

Cons
- the game is unfinished

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.

The creepy aesthetic of claymation is 120% exploited in this point-and-click psychological puzzler. Story lovers should subscribe for all future updates. If you're still not convinced, you can try before you buy: the first chapter of the game is free online at the developer's website. http://www.thedreammachine.se/

I bought this game a while ago as an episodic package after seeing it on the front page of Steam. I was taken by the look of it and I am a fan of point-and-click adventure games. I'm still very happy that I stumbled upon this game.

The artwork is amazing and adds a depth to the game that complements the story very well. The few animations that are present feel natural for the artstyle even if they aren't perfectly smooth. I can appreciate the time that goes into creating each scene in this game.

The story has been very captivating thus far. It builds up very well and I feel very anxious to continue the story after each chapter. Although it would be nice to have audio instead of full text, it is very easy reading with short clips of text instead of walls.

The actual gameplay is pretty generic for a point-and-click adventure game with puzzles and a fair amount of walking from room to room using simple clicks for mechanics and a few drags to piece things together. For a real story-driven adventure game, though, I can deal with simple mechanics that allow for greater concentration on the puzzles, story, etc.

The developers are working hard at keeping the game updated and fixing any known bugs or issues. Fortunately, I haven't come across any issues with the game, myself. They've been constantly refining and adding to the game so it's likely better to pick up a copy later in development. It has been released on more and more platforms as the game ages.

The only real qualm that I have with the game is the extremely slow release of the chapters. When I purchased the game, I believe chapter 3 was just being released or had just been released. The release date for chapter 3 was October 31, 2011. To put the delays into context, chapter 4 was just released August 6th, 2013. I'm never one to mind waiting for a delay on a release for a well-refined product but that was a bit extreme. Fortunately, the developers have mentioned a release for chapter 5 in just months instead of years. Here's hoping. A miserable part of waiting so long is you have to revisit places and puzzles you've done in previous chapters; however, the game is quaint enough and easy enough to follow that forgetting shouldn't be a problem for most.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this game. The price isn't bad and it does go on sale on Steam. There is a demo available on the official website that allows you to play the entirety of chapter 1 through your browser. I'd say that the demo, at least, is a must-play. http://www.thedreammachine.se/

Before I write anything else, I need to say that I can't wait for next chapters! This haunting point and click adventure reminded me of the Neverhood because of the claymation, but that is where the similarities end. The Dream Machine is disturbing and dark game about dreams and a house where something is terribly wrong. Some parts are quite relaxing, some are really creepy. The Dream Machine has many strong points like interesting characters, catching visual side and soundtrack, but the best is definitely how the game builds the atmosphere. Grab this if you can, it's worth the price, despite the chapters being quite short.

What a remarkable gem of a game this is!
If you're a fan of P&C and puzzle games, just buy the game. Its a no-brainer.

The story is solid and gripping, and it leaves you on the edge of your seat the whole way through.
The artwork and animation is fantastic, and the game just looks gorgeous. Simply beautiful.
The soundtrack is amazing, and it compliments the game perfectly. Its understated, but powerful.

After plowing through the first four chapters, I simply can't wait for the last two.

it's an incredibly beautiful looking point & click adventure. the craftmanship (everything's made out of clay) is amazing. if you're not good with p&c games, this one's great for beginners. puzzles are very easy to figure out and the story is intriguing that'll make you keep going.

This is one of my favorite adventure games ever. Very old school in its point and clickiness, but with a solid logic to the puzzles that will make you feel great upon every solution. And the fact that the whole thing is built in claymation? Absolutely killer. The only negative is that the last two chapters are still in the works with no release dates yet. Still definitely worth picking up if you're a fan of this genre.

What should I say? I love this game! And there are not many games which I would describe like that, but there is simply something absolutely fascinating about it. The art style is as unique as the story and I also think, that most of the gameplay holds the perfect balance between difficulty and logic. There is that one thing because of which I know, that it is a good adventure game. I never know the answer as the game asks for one, but I don't even think about looking it up, because it is so great to discover it by myself. That should be part of every adventure. Still, only a few of them ever handeled that! ;)

If you like Adventures, BUY THIS. It has an amazing story line, the graphics are fantastic, controls are great.

One of the best adventures I have played so far (and I have played a lot over the last 20 years).

Thank you to the developers, I hope we see more of you guys in the future!

I got this game out of a bundle a while ago and did not expect much of it. I'm glad that I checked it out, though! It's very well written and it has an overall creepy vibe without the need to resort to jump scares. The puzzles can be sometimes tough but they're never unfair and/or illogical. The storyline is gripping and after playing the 4 chapters I can wait for the remaining 2 to be released!
