Dreamscaper Early Access Progress Trailer

Dreamscaper

Freedom! Games have released a trailer detailing some of the Early Access progress that has been made on roguelite action-RPG, Dreamscaper.

As previously reported, the game is set within the surreal subconsciousness of a woman named Cassidy. Players dive into Cassidy’s subconscious to explore her dreams and fight her nightmares, while in the real world help forge friendships that grant her new abilities.

The trailer focuses primarily on the most recent update, which was a major overhaul to the game’s meta progression and general flow. This included the addition of Meditation, Daydreaming, Sketching, Crafting, Item Mastery, and a To-Do List; all of which are new ways to upgrade Cassidy and her dream world. The update also featured an overhauled UI, a new area, new enemies and bosses, and new secret rooms.
