Puzzle-platformer, Dream Alone, debuts on Switch and PC

Are you afraid of the dark?

The dark and grim platforming adventure, Dream Alone, is brought to life by indie teams Fat Dog Games and Warsaw Games – it’s officially released on digital stores on PC via Steam and the eShop on the Switch.

This terrifying journey has players plunging into a dark and twisted world in search of a cure that will save their village from a deadly plague. Twist around each level to conquer the bizarre settings inspired by silent black and white horror films.

To celebrate the release of the horror platformer is a fittingly gritty launch trailer showing off the dark atmosphere:

Check out some of the key features that make Dream Alone a one-of-a-kind experience:

  • Creatively manipulate each level to help guide your character safely through the dangers that lurk in areas like haunted forests, eerie ghost towns and mysterious caves. Use special abilities like distracting enemies with mirrored clones, switch between realities or slow down time.
  • The grim grey scaled aura adds to the mysterious and bizarre tone that mimics the peculiar setting heavily inspired by the German expressionist silent film era.
  • Award-winning composer, Paweł ‘Fleczer’ Flanc, provides a jarring musical score to help create a tense atmosphere that will have players engulfed in a dark and twisted journey through a surreal world.
  • As a young boy from a small village overrun by an ill-fated plague, players must search for the mythical Lady Death in hopes of discovering a cure to save your people.

“Dream Alone is a fairy tale for players to take part in, with mysteries to uncover in the grand tradition of folklore.” – Fat Dog Games CEO, Darek Skrzypkowski

Dream Alone is out now for the Switch and PC but is also heading over to the PS4 and Xbox One by the end of 2018.
