PAX Online: Freedom! Games & Afterburner Studios Release ‘Dreamscaper’ on Steam Early Access



Dreamscaper, a surreal roguelite action RPG published by Freedom! Games and developed by Afterburner Studios, is now available through Steam Early Access.

Journey through twisted dream realms conjured by the subconscious mind of Cassidy, a young woman wrestling with her inner demons. Trapped in a traumatic loop where restless slumber brings forth dungeons teeming with nightmares and challenges to overcome, her only defense against the darkness is the power of lucid dreaming. Fortify Cassidy’s psychic abilities in the waking world by forging friendships, then strike back against her nocturnal foes in intense hack-and-slash combat. Master an expressive battle system to fend off Cassidy’s enemies and rescue her from a dark fate. Wield imaginative weapons ranging from ethereal yo-yos to blazing finger guns while manipulating the elements, warping space, and even controlling time. Weave together these fantastical powers while using careful positioning, precise timing, and quick reflexes to dodge, parry, and dispatch attackers. Unlock persistent upgrades and harness their potent effects to vanquish horrifying bosses that embody negative emotions like isolation and loss. Explore breathtaking ever-changing dreamscapes reflective of real-world struggles to find a way out of this nightmarish cycle.


Dreamscaper is now available on Steam Early Access for Windows PC for $19.99 / €18.49 / £14.49 with a 25% launch week discount.
