Lucy Dreaming Free Download GAMESPACK.NET Passion oozes from every pore of Lucy Dreaming by Tall Story Games. I played a beta version, in which timed puzzles and distracting background music negligibly hampered the experience. Despite that, I found it to be a reverently built shrine to its adventure game predecessors. Tall Story Games have made a delightful game using beautiful pixel art graphics and a simple interface replete with streamlined shortcuts that simplify participating in an amusing story where dreams intersect with reality. Adventure game players have been gifted an excellent addition to our beloved genre. I love how the pixel art style is used to create a living, breathing world. The way the characters are animated makes them feel more natural and relatable. It’s easy to get invested in their stories and feel like you’re part of their world. In addition to a robust point-and-click interface, Lucy Dreaming utilizes a hotspot indicator and a journal to keep track of tasks. The screen is bisected horizontally.

The halved bottom contains clickable commands for “look at” “pick-up” “talk to” and “use.” These features make it easier to participate in a story that is, in its turn, both humorous and tragic. Lucy Dreaming is a clever play on the words “Lucid Dreaming.” This is a process involving learning to become aware that one is dreaming so that one might control one’s dreams. It’s central to the game’s story. The player inhabits a young girl named Lucy, who is afflicted with the nightmare of falling through clouds. She must control her dreams to find the truth behind a tragedy and end her nightmare. While doing so, she’ll uncover a family secret born from the union of fear and humor. It’s the cleverest part of the story. The funniest dream is the first one, where Lucy tells jokes to a room full of talking plants. Seeing the plants react to her jokes is hilarious, and Lucy’s reaction is just as amusing. The other dreams are similarly entertaining. In the baking dream, there are talking trolls; in the fish dream, there is a talking crab; and the horror dream features a Frankenstein monster parody.

A wide variety of pixel art dreams and real-world locations.

Players will undoubtedly find themselves smiling. Additionally, Lucy may choose between two companions who travel with her during her dreams to help her solve puzzles: a talking bear or a giant roaring duck. My vote goes to the duck. Although Lucy spends most of her time dreaming, she also spends much time awake solving mysteries. My favorite location in the waking world is the Library; the librarian and the method for selecting books are both hilarious. The voice acting is one of the things that makes this game so great. The characters all feel like real people with unique personalities. Lucy is an excellent example of this. She’s such a fun and lively character that I imagine Dennis the Menace would heartily approve of her. There are two timed puzzles that will be difficult for those with limited finger dexterity. The first involves grabbing an anchor quickly. The second consists of pouring hot water before it cools off. They frustrated me because I had to do both several times before succeeding. I also found the fast-paced music distracting when solving puzzles.Sword of the Vagrant Switch NSP

it can be disabled if you do not enjoy it. Lucy Dreaming is an old school point and click adventure game. You know the ones: where you fill up your inventory with seemingly useless items and then rub them against every object in every room until the game declares you’ve solved a puzzle. I jest, but bizarre and nonsensical puzzles and solutions are the stereotypical bread and butter of the genre. While I may have been expecting some frankly absurd Moon Logic, this game keeps it relatively tame, especially given how many puzzles take place in actual dream worlds. So you don’t need to invite any guests over to look at your soup collection, if you get my drift. I wonder how many of my readers will get that reference, and how many of them knew from before TV Tropes. To be honest I was rather impressed by how straightforward even the stranger puzzles were. This is of course subjective, and not everyone will immediately consider poisoning a priest or feeding a coat to a swarm of beetles, both of which were done for incredibly minor gain. But that’s how the genre works, and sometimes the needs of the player outweigh the needs of the NPC.

Frankly the puzzles I found most annoying were the ones where you are given an obvious problem but no solution you try works until you get frustrated and go back to previous areas on the off chance the game puts in the critical item there after you’d already beaten the area and then neglected to mention it to you. It does this at least twice, by the way. In the same area. That’s how I figured it out the second time. There’s also a nitpick I have about the dream mechanic. Lucy’s lucid dreams are manipulated by changing her bedroom. Mostly limited to her specified dream box but there are other things that can affect it as well. And the only hint you are given that this is what you have to do is the dram NPCs specifically saying ‘it is beyond our control.’ Now I’m a dashingly handsome genius, so I obviously figured it out instantly, but this isn’t the only time the game gives you a very vague hint that you need to do something in a seemingly unrelated area, with something you might not even know was there if you didn’t poke around enough. The game does have a hint feature. Sort of. You can use a button on the HUD (or a keybinding if you aren’t using a mouse to play a Point and Click Adventure Game for reasons beyond my comprehension) to highlight everything that you can interact with that’s important.Railbound Switch NSP

The problem is that when I say ‘important,’ I don’t specify when. So if something is critical two hours from now, it’ll get the same highlighting as the thing you actually need to do. And it’s rare for something to stop highlighting, even once you’re done with it. Another grievance I have with the dream sequences was loosely mentioned above. Namely, that you can change things in the dream by going to the real world. The problem is that as the game goes on, the number of things you can change increases, as does the number of options you have to experiment with puzzle solutions. Which means hopping out of a dream, changing something, hopping back in, realizing you forgot to change the other thing, hopping out, changing the other thing, and going back to sleep. And then realizing you were wrong and need to go back. It’s a minor thing that quickly becomes a repeat annoyance. It isn’t often that a game can get me to laugh out loud, but Lucy Dreaming did so on multiple occasions. In one moment, the game broke the fourth wall in a way that made my jaw drop – I felt bamboozled and joyous in equal amounts, but I won’t spoil it for you. You know you’ve got something great on your hands when that happens. Lucy is a young girl plagued by a recurring nightmare in which she’s falling from a great height.

Deeply stressed by this, the adventure kicks off with a psychology book containing instructions to help Lucy out with her nightly terrors. As this is an adventure game, this inevitably involves collecting lots of items, talking to total strangers for information, and solving implausible puzzles with irrational solutions, like making a photographer chase after some thieving birds so I could steal his camera. Classic video game logic is in full force here, but Lucy Dreaming isn’t opaque about it. One item you can pick up is a vole – trying to use it with anything will prompt Lucy to warn you of the vole’s extremely sharp teeth and how easy it would be to cut something with them. Of course, the vole is used to cut something to solve a puzzle. This is one of the game’s biggest strengths – the puzzle difficulty is tuned brilliantly, and plenty of fair hints keep you progressing through the game at a good pace. I rarely felt stumped, but I still got a great sense of satisfaction when overcoming some of the trickier obstacles.

It’s a game of two halves – the waking world and Lucy’s dream world. The first big puzzle has you assembling a ‘dream box’ – inside this box you put an inspiring book and a dream companion. When laid on the floor next to her bed, the dream box turns Lucy’s nightmare into a vivid, surreal dream based on whatever book is inside. A holiday brochure, for example, takes Lucy to a seaside complete with a chip van and giant, talking crabs. These dream sections help the game stand out – they allow for far more nonsensical puzzles and interactions than the real world, and they’re used to great effect when delivering solutions to real-world puzzles. Complementing the lighthearted dream sequences is the serious B-plot of the game, involving the apparent murder of a local rich man by his brother, who subsequently disappeared. While Lucy Dreaming is a hilarious game, it doesn’t tread too far into silly – the narrative is treated as earnestly as it needs to be. As the mystery of ten years ago became more relevant to Lucy’s situation, I became more invested in it than I was in her nightmares.

While some moments dive into dark, sometimes uncomfortable territory, the game takes lengths to keep a lighthearted atmosphere throughout. The source of much of the humour is rooted in how British everything is. Figgington is a perfect parody of a northern English town, right down to the depressing pub, frightfully boring stately home (open to visitors and features a café, naturally), and more regional accents than you can shake a stick at. No opportunity to make a joke is missed, and every area of the game is filled with little details that Lucy can remark upon – it’s incredibly dense with humour. A particular highlight is the absurd amount of brand name pisstakes – a police officer is encountered eating a Twax chocolate bar, one puzzle is solved using a bottle of Frootie Shootie, and Lucy’s headache remedy of choice is, of course, Gulpol. Some of these jokes may be so specific as to exclude any non-Brits, but as a Welshman who grew up in the ‘90s, I appreciated them deeply. Any quibbles I have with Lucy Dreaming are incredibly minor. The music feels very repetitive in often-visited locations but is never unpleasant.Inscryption Switch NSP
