Dreamscaper is a surreal, Binding of Isaac-style Hack and Slash – players battle a nightmarish depression that lives in a young woman’s subconscious. Every slumber is a different dungeon and you must unlock the power of your dreams to see a new day. Play as Cassidy, a young woman trapped in a deep depression. Dive into her subconscious to take on the nightmares she wrestles with.

The development of Dreamscaper

From the Press Kit:

Feeling burned out in traditional game development, Rob, Ian, and Paul left it behind in the summer of 2018 to follow their dreams and build an indie title they could call their own. Dreamscaper is a very personal project, drawing inspiration from childhood favorites and focusing on an emotional through line confronting depression and mental health. Only a year into production, Dreamscaper has entered open alpha and is developing at a rapid pace with a growing community.

There is a DEMO available on Steam and Itch.io. I’d like to play it on Twitch in the next days.
