Night Reverie Update 2: Dialog System and Obtaining items

Dialog System

Dialog is a major aspect in Night Reverie. As you interact with many objects, different dialogs will appear on screen so the player can learn more about the characters and the world. Puzzle solving also requires the interaction with different objects in the environments. We went for a traditional approach on the dialog system implementation. We show a portrait of the speaker and the text starts displaying character by character until the paragraph is done displaying.

The video shows a test interaction with a bathtub in a bathroom. This is one of the explorable rooms in Night Reverie.

We also implemented different reactions for the protagonist's portraits. This adds emotion to the different dialogs in the game.

The garage is another explorable room in Night Reverie. Make sure to interact with different objects in order to learn more about the place and obtain useful items that may help you on your journey.

Strange creature and obtaining items

Night Reverie is filled with mysterious characters and our newest one is no stranger to this fact. Deep inside the distorted house lives a creature inside a giant boot. Many curious interactions will take place with this character so make sure to inspect that big boot!

Many items can be obtained in Night Reverie. You must use them in order to make progress around the puzzles in the house. Make sure to inspect every corner in order the find useful items.

This is currently work in progress. We are working on animations for many objects such as the fridge to make interactions more interesting.

We appreciate any feedback from you! Don't hesitate to contact us or leave a comment.
