What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to create a world of infinite adventure with Dream Cycle. It’s a hugely ambitious project built around a new take on procedurally generating deterministic levels. We think that once we get a well-tuned system, it can be used with new elements to open the possibility of nearly limitless places to go.

This means we need to get this first world right to then use as a template for the ones to come. The more player feedback and suggestions we get, the better able we will be to find and understand the fun experiences in these worlds. With a community of fellow explorers we will fine tune the gateways to ever more worlds of adventure.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect Dream Cycle to be in Early Access through the first part of 2022. When to go to full release remains undetermined. In large part that timing depends on your feedback along with progress toward establishing the template for the creation of new zones. At that point we will take the game out of Early Access.”

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

“Early Access focuses on evolving the world and adventure creation systems using one zone, the Enchanted Forest. In full release, Dream Cycle will expand with new zones built on that model. This means more of everything, more perks, more spells, more enemies, more environments. We will use player feedback to help determine the initial expansion at version 1.0 and model for rolling out new content post-launch.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access offers a complete action adventure game experience in the Enchanted Forest zone. It starts with a full tutorial that leads to a hub world from which players can explore any of 10,000 levels. Story, player, and world development are ongoing in waves with major updates.

Should I buy this in Early Access?

No, not if you want a finished game. Dream Cycle in Early Access is not a fully polished experience. It gives you a change to play and be part of the community contributing to its development. We have big ambitions and a lot of ahead of us.”

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

“Yes, we want to encourage and reward players for being part of the development adventure and providing valuable feedback. At launch we will adjust the price up to reflect the developed content and future expansion.”

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

“We want the player community to become involved with the development of the game through conversations here on the Steam community forums. The team will be directly engaged here. In addition, players can connect on our Discord channel and submit bug reports and feedback through the Raw Fury’s support page.”

About This Game

Enter the world of Dream Cycle, a fully procedural action adventure by Lara Croft’s creator Toby Gard. Take the role of modern-day arcanist Morgan Carter and walk the planes of the Dreamlands, a twisted dimension where the souls of the living are trapped in eternal nightmare. Explore diverse dreams, and by understanding the events that transpired, free the dreamers from their perpetual torment. Using a wide variety of weapons from traditional to modern day, and a grimoire full of powerful spells, define your own play style as you plumb the depths of the infinite dreamlands.

Main Gameplay Features

  • A Harrowing Narrative Adventure
    Designed by veteran game developer Toby Gard, Dream Cycle is heavily inspired by Lovecraftian cosmic horror. You play as Morgan Carter, a modern-day sorceress trapped in a mysterious alternate reality. With her life fading in the waking world, Morgan must free her friend and as many others as she can from the Dreamlands before the Crawling Chaos dooms them all.

  • A Dynamic, Adaptive Style of Gameplay
    With plenty of weapons, abilities, and powers at your disposal, Dream Cycle lets you truly define the way you play. Pick your favorite weapon, master the arcane, exploit your enemies’ weaknesses and find the best approach to each encounter - whether it’s full-force front assaults or silent but deadly incursions. Vanquish your foes, expand your knowledge, and invest in new skills and abilities that will help you shape the game into a unique experience.

  • An Immersive World to Explore
    Follow the footsteps of Randolph Carter and Basil Elton across the vast and mysterious Dreamlands. Climb the forbidden peak of Hatheg-Kla in the stony desert, carve your way through the Perfumed Jungles of Kled, and discover forgotten palaces with veined ivory columns that sleep lovely and unbroken under the moon. Fight hideous Ghouls and vast lumbering Gugs, meet exotic tribes, and visit a wide variety of biomes steeped in the lore of the Dreamlands.

  • A Shifting, Endless Experience
    An unstable realm made up of fragments of the real world, the dreamlands will change every time you visit: roll the dice and watch as the world in front of you reshapes itself. Go back to places you had already explored and face new challenges and new stories for even greater rewards. Dream Cycle is professionally voice-acted and features a completely original soundtrack by the original Tomb Raider composer Nathan McRee that further adds to the game’s uniqueness.
