Hypnagogia: Boundless Dreams is a beautiful retro styled first person exploration adventure where you journey through a collection of very different worlds set in dreams and nightmares.
A sequel to the excellent Hypnagogia, Hypnagogia: Boundless Dreams follows the events of the original and sees Gogi the dream rabbit kidnapped by a mysterious entity. Without Gogi around to protect the Dream Crystal it shattered and hid its fragments in various dreams and nightmares. You now need to enter them, find the fragments and rescue Giogi.
The demo build of Hypnagogia: Boundless Dreams features two large levels and one secret one, taking around an hour to play through. It’s a delightful experience, with lots of fun characters to meet, lots to discover in each world and a good sense of humor.
The wonderfully chunky and colorful retro art style of Hypnagogia: Boundless Dreams is inspired by the PS1 and Dreamcast era (though both consoles would probably explore if they tried to run it). The gameplay feels satisfyingly retro too, with fairly simple controls, a little platforming and a focus on exploring and discovering the secrets of each world. You may fail to land a jump now and again, but it’s not a punishingly tough game, it’s more about enjoying each beautifully crafted world and having fun. A charming and creative adventure filled with vibrant dream worlds to explore. Highly recommended.
