April Update


Greetings Citizen!

Spring has finally reached Sweden and it's about effin' time, if you ask me!

This winter just wouldn't end... If I were to review it I would give it 1 star out of 5 possible. Too long. Too dark. Too cold. Would not experience again, given a choice. But now it's finally over, so let's peel away about 7 layers of clothing and get busy celebrating!

If you still need to be convinced about joining the party, let me give you another reason: We just released an update to the game! How cool is that?!

Yeah?

That got you in the mood, huh? Feel like celebrating now, do you? Those ol' hips of yours just started gyrating, did they?

As I knew they would! No doubt. No doubt.

This update changes how the interaction options are displayed. Finally, you no longer have to look at the bottom of the screen to see what you're trying to do. The text follows the mouse cursor around at all times. It's something I've been wanting to change for a while, and now's the time.

We've also added 200 interaction options to Chapter 6. There's still more we'd like to add there, but this is a solid step in the right direction. We hope you agree.

Anyway, here's the full patch rundown:

• Engine: Tweaked UI
• Engine: Tweaked load file access
• Engine: Tweaked autosave file cleanup
• Chapter 6: Added 200 interaction options
• Game: Improved sound effect quality

As always, don't be shy if you see something strange or buggy in the game.

Cheers,

"To play something like The Dream Machine, so exquisitely constructed, so smartly designed, and so atmospherically unique, is a singular pleasure." - Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"It's so confidently strung together, both in terms of narrative and gameplay, that it's easy to forget that it's the work of just two indie developers."
8/10 - Eurogamer

"A series filled with mystery and charm, elevated to lofty heights by its whimsical clay and cardboard design, surreal storyline, and heartfelt attention to detail."
4/5 - Adventure Gamers

"The Dream Machine is the best adventure game that I've played in the last decade – and maybe in my entire life."
9.5/10 - CD-Action
