The Dream Machine, by Cockroach, Inc.

The Dream Machine is an episodic horror adventure game that stars Victor Neff, a young man who just moved into an apartment with his wife. The first three chapters of the five chapter story have already come out and are now available on Steam. With each short chapter costing $5, it really makes the most sense to try chapter one for free at the game’s website and then buy the full $15 bundle on Steam if you enjoy it.

Confusing distribution options aside, The Dream Machine has a wonderfully eerie and surrealistic atmosphere, and when I played it a year or so back, I remember the story and puzzles being quite interesting. Hopefully the final two chapters will be released soon.

    Easily the most beautiful game of the past few years. Am so far loving it!

    Will we see the final two chapters within 20 years?

    surrealistic? I think you have to choose between one or the other.  You can’t have your cake and have the neighbour’s dog to lick it off
