I usually have dreams where I'm playing a game that's never existed before. Sometimes they're from another franchise, like Sonic The Hedgehog, other times they're original content. One in particular, however, has been a recurring dream.
For years now, I've been intermittently dreaming about roughly the same game, and each time I dream about it, the more I'm able to remember about it after I wake up, and the more and more complete an idea it is.
The first time I dreamt about it, I couldn't remember it after I woke up. Then the second time, after I woke up, I was like "Haven't I dreamt of that place before?". Early on, there were no real goals. The second time I had the dream, there were goals and a little more life to the game, but I wasn't really sure what I was doing. I was simply exploring the gorgeous game world.
Last time, there were collectables, and this time the collectables became the 7up spot. But also in this dream, there was plot, side characters, and even a boss battle, and an apparent choice system. Essentially, for years this game has been building itself. I still have to do the technical parts, of course, but the design aspect has been a WIP for a long while, now. Unfortunately, getting the game developed isn't something I can tackle right now.
First of all, it's in 3D. Second, its environment would take a lot of time and care, in order to capture the beauty of it. Third, I only have bits and pieces, still, as I can't control the dream and get a good look around, nor can I remember every detail on waking up. I'm determined, now more than ever, to see it completed, but it may still be a long while. It wouldn't be a cheap, easy project, like 2D games are.
As per usual, I can't talk about it because I don't want it stolen. So you'll just have to imagine what it would be like. Mmm, dat environment. So atmospheric.... Dose characters, so characteristic! Actually, I don't remember much about the characters, I just remember these two really cute women, and those two are the driving force behind my determination to see this game happen.
