Demo is LIVE! (Featured on Polygon!)

Hey guys! Thank you so much for the support over the past few days; the demo's reception has been nothing but incredible and I'm super hype to finish the rest of the game now.

I'm also super psyched to announce that the game was recently covered by Polygon! (also talked about in podcast form here - starts at 17min).

Enjoy! <3

One-hour demo drops NEXT WEEK! (Wednesday, December 5)

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful and filling Thanksgiving.

I’m super excited to announce that the playable demo for She Dreams Elsewhere will launch next week on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5th! It’ll contain the first hour of the game and should get across the general vibe I’m going for.

You’ll be able to download and play it via here on Steam, or RPG when it releases.

Also, the postmortem for DreamHack Atlanta will be dropping later this week as well! I hope you all look forward to it; I loved the event and I can’t wait to share my experience with you all.

Oh, and before I forget, poll for you guys – how would you all feel about a behind-the-scenes development vlog? Kind of a like a more personal, smaller-scale version of Double Fine Adventure, with stuff like map creation timelapses, design processes, tutorials for RPG Maker, maybe even a livestream or two… I’ve got a ton of ideas for it.

I’ve set up a Strawpoll, so please let me know your thoughts.

See ya, uh… later this week. Heh.

About This Game

SHE DREAMS ELSEWHERE is a surreal adventure JRPG about dreams and the extent to which they mirror reality. You play as Thalia Sullivan, a high strung, anxiety-ridden, comatose woman on a journey to defeat the nightmares preventing her from awakening, while also finding out how exactly this mess happened in the first place.

But some nightmares are harder to confront than others…

  • A deeply personal narrative with a thematic focus on emotions, mental illness and self-identity
  • A surreal, visually-striking world brimming with mystery that begs you to explore its every detail
  • An easy to learn, yet difficult to master turn-based battle system that pits you against a variety of nightmarish beings
  • Customize your characters with the “Charm” system, allowing for a wealth of different playstyles and battle strategies
  • Connect and bond with a diverse cast of characters with their own intimate narratives via the “Dream Link” system
  • Status ailments that can be used and abused with every enemy, bosses included – but be warned; if you’re not careful, they can devastate you just as easily…
  • Three difficulty modes for those who want to simply experience the story (Easy), face a true challenge (Normal) or have their limits pushed to the edge (Nightmare)
  • Optional “New Game Plus” and “Developer Commentary” modes, plus various accessibility features
  • A original, ethereal soundtrack composed by Mimi Page, supplemented with tracks by up-and-coming indie artists
