You wake up in a foggy haze with one hell of a headache. The way ahead is dark and foreboding. You remember who you are, but not a lick of how you got there. And to top it all off, you’ve got a persistent, bloodthirsty doppelgänger chasing after you.
Welcome to your coma - enjoy your stay!
SHE DREAMS ELSEWHERE is a surreal adventure JRPG about dreams and the extent to which they mirror reality. You play as Thalia Sullivan, a high strung, anxiety-ridden, comatose woman on a journey to defeat the nightmares preventing her from awakening, while also finding out how exactly this mess happened in the first place.
But some nightmares are harder to confront than others…
Hope you all have been well. So I’ve got good news and bad news. How ’bout we get the bad news out of the way first, yeah? Sadly, She Dreams Elsewhere won’t be releasing this summer, but instead has been pushed back to later this winter.
But why tho? Long story short…
and that’s not even counting indie games, Nintendo-exclusive games or games I otherwise don’t know/care about! Yes, many of these games aren’t necessarily “competition”, but from a press/PR-standpoint, they’ll all be taking attention away from Dreams. So to give the game the best chance on launch week, I’d like to launch as far away as possible from those AAA juggernauts.
I’ll be announcing the actual release date about a month before launch, so stay tuned until then.
With that being said, here’s some actual good news! There’s going to be a public demo available to play in September containing the first hour of gameplay! I was against releasing it publicly for the longest time, but since there’s a longer road to release now, I figured “why not”, y’know?
If you can’t wait and would like to get your hands on the demo sooner, you can sign up to be a beta tester here!
I’m also considering taking one of the shorter, standalone sidequests and including it within the demo as well, but I’m still not entirely sure on that. If I did, I would mainly do it because for GDEX’s sake-
…oh yeah I haven’t mentioned GDEX yet ahahaha
So yeah. On September 29-30, She Dreams Elsewhere will be playable on the show floor at GDEX 2018 in Columbus, Ohio. If you’ll be at the show, stop by and say hello! I’d love to see you.
For those of you at home – besides the demo, I’ll also be releasing a new trailer/gameplay video next month as well! (In additions to the regular screenshots on Twitter and Instagram). Please look forward to it.
‘Till next time, be excellent to each other. ;)
It's hard to show off your game at an expo. Even harder when you're a solo dev. Absolutely ridiculous when it's a moody JRPG. Here's my experience.
