What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“After releasing the prototype on Itch.io in late 2018 we have continuously improved it on the basis of feedback and suggestions. Being a game based on freely explorable world, this new version it now has a solid foundation that allows us to virtually expand it to infinity. The game is ready to be enjoyed by a larger audience, which thanks to periodic surveys, will actively take part in the completion of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Based on community feedback, we will add and remove features, dimensions and mechanics as long as there are ideas, suggestions and proposals. The game will remain in early access approximately until summer 2021.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We'll try to include many other features, areas to explore and mechanics. We will do our best to increase the variety in the personalization of the character, in the quantity of objects to be collected and / or crafted and in the secondary quests. The game world could be expanded with other areas to explore.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game actually is stable and complete in its main mechanics. The basic gameplay, which includes having to balance the dream / nightmare level, the relative puzzle-based fights with the enemies and all the secondary management such as, trade, simple farming, fishing, crafting, horse riding etc., is fully implemented and will in any case be enhanced over time.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to slightly raise the price following the inclusion of new content and features in the game”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We have opened a Discord server that we keep constantly updated since its launch and that we use to receive advice, suggestions and to quickly solve any problem that may arise: https://discord.gg/therewasadream/”

Reviews

“You realize that you like a game when it sounds strange to call it a "game". You've been attached to it for days, you think about it while you're doing something else, you sleep little and you are late for appointments to keep up with it.”
78/100 – Mokeybit

There Was A Dream is set in a lucid dream. You have been chosen by the Entity, a dark force that travels between the dimension of dreams. It has given you the power to manipulate dreams. The Entity seeks to increase its army of nightmares, and the great power it has given you can take you on its dark mission.
Manage the balance between dream and nightmare and keep the villages safe from the Nightmares. By descending underground you will fight the Entity and its creatures with a system of fighting and puzzles, freeing captured civilians and restoring peace.

YOUR ACTIONS SHAPE THE GAME WORLD

If you keep your balance, you can explore a colorful and vibrant world. If you lose yourself, you will wander through a dark and desolate land.

AN AMAZING WORLD TO EXPLORE


When you're not on your main mission, explore the game world: collect, trade and resell items. Meet new characters and help them in case of need. When you're tired, pitch your tent and restore your energy by crafting lots of useful items. Train and customize your horse, grow the vegetable garden or go fishing. Approach the animals that populate the world, sneaking around or hiding in the bushes. Move around on horseback, by car, boat or train... and by unlocking the right skills, being inside a dream, also through other fantastic ways.
