You can find additional information about the title in the following overview:
Dreamed Away is more than just a game. It’s an intense reflection of the developer’s own story, born at the same time as his second child. The game’s world is built around the main character’s – Theo’s – bond with his sister Louise as well as his desire to find and reconnect with her. The story takes place in a cozy little village in Brittany, where the surroundings tell you a story about a safe, calm, and happy place. But mystery steps in. A darkness is encroaching. It’s unsettled, shady. It’s a game about a young boy questioning his sense of reality and sanity. While trapped alone in a world where he constantly faces his fears. Such an experience of internalizing doubts and fears is how the game was born.
– Cozy and safe atmosphere mixed up with unsettling and dark mood full of doubts
– Externally introspective: Dive deep into Theo’s fears while exploring the game’s story and world
– Alternative way to battle: pre-equip varied abilities that can affect the stats of the player or enemy and/or impact gameplay. Each ability has a side-effect
– Engaging turn-based combat system with real-time enemy attacks
