Very good. LSD emulator games hold very meditational qualities for me.

Those skyboxes are soo cool! Really remind me of the ones in Mario 64.

(+2)

oh for sure! nothing will ever beat the Wet Dry World skybox...

So mysterious...

How did you manage to pull them off? Is it like a still image or something?

(You don't have to say, I'm just curious)

(+2)

it's an image rendered behind everything that wraps horizontally, if you look around it scrolls horizontally :) it's really very simple and it adds so much for a little bit of work. all the images are based on images, except in the last area which is actually made from a screenshot of the area!!

That is bloody genius! 

Best of luck in all your future projects!

oh this is just so beautiful! i love how you've built the environments. so simple and effective. i think the fidelity of PS2 graphics really lends itself to lucid dreamlike experiences

Short but enjoyable, Dream Disc is one of those games that captured my attention because I’ve always been curious about dreams, especially because everyone’s are so radically different from one another. I think it’s a great idea, as it allows us to visualize the dreams of others.

What software did you use to make this? I really want to try and visualize my dreams also! thanks for the game, I enjoyed it

(+1)

I used Unity for this! Along with some modified PSX shaders by Modus Interactive based on the dsoft20's ones: https://github.com/dsoft20/psx_retroshader

thanks man i appreciate it <3

The game is good and all, but I can't seem to look around when I move my mouse! Do you have any answers to this? Is this a bug?

Update: I found that you can look around using the arrow keys, now I'm just questioning why.

haha, it's more true to the feel of a ps1 game, that didn't have a joystick. I also feel like it's slightly more claustrophobic feeling not being able to look around that easily

@papercookies You have long very cohesive dreams that you remember in great detail, too? No one in my family gets them except me.

Sufficiently creepy and unsettling. Loved it. By the way, ESC didn't work to exit the game. I had to Alt+F4 which might not be intuitive to a lot of players. Was this intentional?

ive noticed that with alot of unity games, and just 3d games on itch in general. worst case scenario, you can press alt+shift+esc to open up the task manager and that will always boot you out of the window you are in. if you want to just minimize a tab without shutting it off, you can press alt+esc

sorry! I was rushing to make the deadline and forgot to add an escape button, will update

That tsunami dream... I dreamed that too!

(1 edit)

that's interesting! heard the same from others. I wonder what having a tsunami dream means?

I love the retro style you went for really brings me back to when I played games on my old laptop: which inspired me to make my own

I would love it if you tried it out and gave feedback as I am just getting the hang of game development.
Love the work, Keep it up owo

The game's nice and interesting and it had alot of weird in it as well. Not bad.

Really nice aesthetics in this game, I felt it really captured the style of the PSX, very nice environments too! I hope you add more dreams! :D

Hello, I played this game and I really liked it, an interesting concept, good work :)

VERY COOL BUT STRANGE GAME!

REMINDS ME A LOT OF LSD EMULATOR

(+1)

you found the secret area!! thanks for playing!

(+2)

Short but sweet! Really enjoyed the visuals, the music (especially the 4th dream), and the flow of each sequence. Gave me lots of weird, liminal feelings throughout. Was probably the closest to emulating the actual LSD game! Nice work~

(+1)

thank you so much!! means a lot coming from you <3

The dreamy atmosphere is good, as if it would be better if there was a mission

For some reason, when I downloaded it, my computer said it was a dangerous file.

(+1)

windows never trusts unsigned exe's, it's really dumb. the game is safe though. just ignore it

(+1)

Okay, thanks for letting me know.

(+1)

short but enjoyable and nicely done, thank you!

(+1)

awesome!!!! I really liked the last dream...

(+2)

thank you :) I actually have recurring nightmares about tsunami's, it's really weird

(+1)

It was very fun :)
