Tall Story Games’ newest title, Lucy Dreaming, was recently funded in its entirety within just a week. Their retro adventure game received massive support from people around the globe. Their support continues to increase as time goes on. Husband and wife team Tom and Emma Hardwidge were picked by Kickstarter to be included under “Projects We Love.” Within the same week, their initial funding goal was achieved. With the extra money they have received, however, they can now see the game’s cast fully-voiced.
There have been naysayers of the project that said the adventure game industry is collapsing. However, Tom and Emma Hardwidge decided they wanted to pursue their dreams despite the naysayers. So, they put their pixel-art point and click demo online to let the public decide if that was true or not. Lucy Dreaming follows in the footsteps of a number of point and click adventures, all of which successfully crowdfunded recently. The gaming community is taking notice of these indie developers who share their passion for narrative-driven games.
Lucy Dreaming is a comedic, quirky point and click adventure game which lets players control a character named Lucy, a young girl suffering from recurring nightmares. In the game, Lucy unlocks the secret to controlling her dreams. She then journeys through a myriad of weird and wonderful locations in both the dream world and reality. Subsequently, she encounters a plethora of extraordinary people and creatures as she unearths the disturbing truth behind her nightmares. Pixel art and a British sense of humor will take you on a hilarious adventure.
