Lucy Dreaming - A retro, pixel-art point & click demo out now!

Hi everyone,
This is my very first post in the forum and I’m afraid I’m going to cheapen the whole thing by shamelessly promoting my new point & click demo that I’m hoping to fund on Kickstarter in May. Laughing

I’m here for two reasons.
Promotion - I want you to play my game, love it, back it and generally be part of something that means the world to me.
Feedback - Your opinions can help make the game so much more, so if you have the time, please let me know what you think of it!

The pitch!
Lucy is a young girl with a sharp wit and a recurring nightmare! Your job is to guide her through the game to discover the secrets of “lucid dreaming” (you see what I did there?) and finally unearth the truth behind her nightmare. There will be a variety of satisfying puzzles which cross between the dream world and reality, with a difficulty level similar to classics like DOTT and Monkey island (without the monkey wrenches).

There are also some modern perks like a hotspot display, instant travel between scenes and a pared-down SCUMM interface. I also added hot-keys for quick verb-selection which is a feature I personally love!

Lucy Dreaming is my love-letter to the 90s LucasArts classics, created by someone who grew up playing and adoring titles like Monkey Island, DOTT and Maniac Mansion.
The game’s sarcastic, British humour is inspired by the likes of Blackadder and Monty Python, and is brought to life with retro pixel-art graphics and a fully-voiced cast.

Download the demo
You can download the demo for free from Steam, or DRM-free from Itch.io.
It’s available for Windows, Linux and MacOS too.

Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1532710/Lucy_Dreaming/

The Kickstarter campaign will be starting at the beginning of May (all being well), so if you want to be the first in line for any early-bird rewards you can follow the pre-launch page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hardwidge/lucy-dreaming-a-pixel-art-point-and-click-comedy-adventure

I really like how this looks. I don’t play demos because I like to experience the entire game as one fresh experience, but count me in when the KS goes up.

Thank you, that’s awesome!
I feel EXACTLY the same way about demos!
Which is why this demo is actually a mini-episode/prequel to the full game, so although some of the scenes and characters will appear in the full game, the actual puzzles and character dialogue are unique to the demo, so there are no spoilers or repetition if you play both. Laughing

Still haven’t played the demo, but backed anyway. I like what I heard from Tom on an adventure game podcast interview. Lookin’ forward, folks!

Thank you so much for your support!!
I’m always worried how I’m going to come across on interviews!  Wink

It might also be worth mentioning that we’ve now FUNDED on Kickstarter, and we’re now working towards our first stretch goal of the campaign - voice overs!
