What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're releasing this for free as a way to engage and reward new players for joining our community. As part of this, we are encouraging players to have an active part in the creative feedback process.
As a short, simple, minimalist game, Dream of the Star Haven is perfectly suited to making rapid changes based on player feedback”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“9 months”

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

“The core gameplay mechanics will remain the focus, and we'll aim to simply build on those - adding more levels, and more puzzle mechanics as we go, but always intending to keep the game as simple and accessible as possible. Once we hit our target amount of levels and hours-of-gameplay, we'll then focus on polishing the best qualities!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the features listed in the "About This Game" section are fully implemented including rich first person traversal, the core triple-leap gameplay, discovering energy gems and using them to scan for treasures, and the gravity-rotation mechanic.

Approximately one-third of the game is complete and playable as fully realized levels. As a free game, we're keeping the scope simple and so we're aiming for the completed version to be around 5-10 hours long (including all secrets and collectibles)”

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

“As we progress further into Early Access and add more content and features we plan to transition from free to a paid game”

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

“Our Discord server here will be the primary way our community can communicate to us and with each other, and we'll be uploading updates to the game approximately weekly, and chatting about them with the Discord community - including hearing their feedback, feature requests, etc”

About This Game

Dream of the Star Haven is a 1st person giant-leap platformer with elements of exploration, puzzling and combat - a magical odyssey through islands in the sky where you soar gracefully and eventually even bend gravity itself to your will, giving you the power to literally turn the dreamlike world upside-down.

Explore awe-inspiring floating islands with gravity-defying agility. Discover the stars scattered across the islands using your magical scanner to reveal hidden celestial secrets.

In this captivating land, you're invited into a serene journey where you traverse the floating archipelago in search of secrets, to liberate that which has been unjustly taken.

The game introduces a mesmerizing combination of a mighty triple-leap ability and a magical scanner, both essential foundational tools for navigating the world. As you venture deeper into its secrets you'll discover all manner of other energies - some that grant powers, and some that take them away.

Discover the stars scattered across the islands using the magical scanner that helps you on your main quest, while other side quests and secret collectibles are more elusive. As you progress through each realm, you uncover the mysteries of a lost era.

Immerse yourself in a unique blend of discovery, graceful platforming, and a dreamy atmosphere. Savor the expansive vistas and uncover all that's hidden among the islands. With its emphasis on relaxation, exploration, and light combat and puzzle solving, the game provides an oasis of tranquility and is the perfect game-between-games when you need a break from big, noisy and chaotic gameplay.

Cruise through the low-stakes core of the game, or challenge yourself with the more difficult collectathon of its secret challenges!

For puzzle fans the world of Star Haven also has a layer of secret sokoban puzzles!

Embrace the joy of a harmonious journey as you leap toward the stars and reach toward a higher Dream of the Star Haven
