Salvadorian developer The Domaginarium recently released The Dreamlands: Aisling’s Quest on Steam for PC. The point-and-click adventure game puts players in the role of Aisling, who experienced an event one day that saw a mysterious being transporting her to an all new world shaped and molded by Aisling’s dreams. Players will move through this fantasy world, guiding Aisling on what originally seems like a dream come true, only to find that there’s a nightmare that lurks behind the facade of good tidings and idyllic imagery.
The hook for The Dreamlands: Aisling’s Quest is that shortly into the journey through the dream world, Aisling discovers that while her desires and thoughts can shape and mold the world, so can her fears and darkness as well. Things begin to take a twisted turn when Aisling runs into a dark figure known as The Mourner, who wants to take control of the world, corrupting and covering it in the darkness of nightmares.
In order to defeat The Mourner, players will have to help Aisling recover three specific treasures that will grant her the ability to face off against the dark figure and bring peace back to the land.
You can check out the gameplay video below to see what the gameplay and cinematics are like for the point-and-click adventure game.
Like most other classic games in the genre, you’ll have to explore the environments, acquire objects, solve puzzles, and progress through the game.
The plot for the game seems somewhat interesting, and I’m sure the truth behind The Gloom and The Mourner will likely be more familiar than surprising, but it’s also interesting that we’re seeing a lot of different games across a variety of genres coming from development studios from all over the world.
In fact, The Domaginarium has plans on porting The Dreamlands to the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Development has already begun and the game will appear on Sony’s gaming platforms at a later date.
The Dreamlands: Aisling’s Quest is currently available on the Steam store for $4.99.
