Ever wanted to go on a journey as a slippery toad? The Japanese view the frog as a symbol of luck, causing developers Inochi.lfe to create a poetic adventure conveying the strides of our life through the use of these bouncy reptiles.
Using a strikingly simple oriental soundtrack, the sound and shape of each level of 'a dream?' changes based purely on the impact you and your fellow frogs have on the platforms surrounding you, emphasizing the real-life dynamic changes brought forward by even the most simple of encounters.
Though you'll only be controlling the power and direction of your frog friend's jump, each resulting ripiple will alter the overall experience and tone of each level's associated theme. Revolving around those usually insignificant decisions, a dream? will aim to highlight the resounding effects simple events can have on someone's life.
Though the below trailer suggests an October release, other material merely hints at an 'End of 2016' arrival. Such poetic justice.
