I really like this game and the macabre aesthetic! 

(1 edit)

this game actually has a lot of promise and I will definitely be looking into the full release. 

It hits me as a combination of limbo (an obvious comparison for all dark 2D games now) and Fran Bow for the dual dimension mechanic. That’s not a bad conparrison either, it’s really enjoyable!

(╬゚◥益◤゚) Angry ASMR they said. Get past the giant spider they said.. Why not


(excuse my angry tone)

I really love this game, It's reminiscent of Limbo, but has a whole sort of rage quit vibe.. Really good  


Played your game on my series, Indie Game Roundup (starts at 17:16 if embed isn't working). Very promising so far!

SPIKES AND TRAPS!.. | Dream Alone | Demo

this game is awesome!! so many deaths its unreal XD the thing where you can enter the other world was awesome!! really creepy yet awesome!! great job on creating this! 

Just played, I really like the Monochrome style it typically works well with games of this caliber. Here's my video

(,,꒪꒫꒪,,)Sure, let's visit satan and cthulu's dark realm why not.


you weren't kidding about the difficulty! I'm very curious where the story is going to go tho :3

I feel like i'm playing Mario all over again but, this time i'm way older and, the setting is dark and, gothic. The  theme is no longer cheery but, bleak. It's a great platformer. I think it's borderline rage platformer with how many times I died and, tried again.

This Demo was on point. i was very entertained throughout the game. I only recorded a few parts of the game so other gamers can experience this product themselves. the artwork is outstanding. the intro pulled me in. Great demo and im excited for the full release

Dream Alone is iconic in how it has scripted and built its own world. Although the Demo was only five levels, it challenged me harshly throughout every minute of playing. I love the music the player meets as soon as you open the title screen, it inspires and is reminiscent of cultural themes such as the twisted nature of Lewis Carroll's Wonderland, with a horrific touch of gore. This game is beautifully dark, I absolutely admire the black and white style with what appears to be taken from the early 20th century film. This feature ages the game for the player, subconsciously creating an even more disturbing environment. I was only able to experience the 39th dead world with the red bar, however looking at the page now I am curious as to what the blue bar would do. Everything about this game is perfectly sound, the jumping and timing hold the player accountable, while the environments and enemies are somewhat predictable with trial and error.  I love the free soundtrack I accidentally happened upon, and look forward to listening to what appears to be a horror opera/drama. I'm really glad this was fully developed and out on Steam. Best of Luck to a veteran Development team. This game is immersive and awesome, DOWNLOAD THIS FOR YOURSELF!
