A kid named Dustin goes into a coma after being hit by an ice cream truck. His injuries are serious and there is virtually no hope of him waking up.
His dog sleeps by his side, dreaming of strange and mysterious lands filled with canine wonders. It is Balthazar - Dustin's best friend and there is no way in the world he will move even an inch away from his owner.
In his dream Balthazar senses a presence of two entities. Recognizing one as Dustin he uses his nose to follow him, while the other presence lurks menacingly in the darkness. Balthazar is sure that it is here to take the boy away.

With a loud bark Balthazar embarks on a quest to save his owner, venturing through the dreamscape with love and determination only a dog can possess.

      Balthazar's Dream reviews and comments

      Product received for free EIn little Livestream from me for this elegant little Game ^ ^ Aloha people! This Indie Game has a lot of Potential, I can say that from vornerein. Balthazar is a small Dog who wants to save its Owner. The Dream World of the Boy seems to want to devour him. In the best Platformer Fashion, You try to dispel the Shadows. To do this, You have Help from the Ability of Barking, your loyal friend named Ball and your Instincts. A small Game that can make for a few fun Minutes. I myself am not through after an Hour. The Price is quite intense for me personally, but quite justified. I give the Game a 7.5/10 and the Test Verdict: "Good to Very Good" Yours! Jardras

      Product received for free The Game I received free from the Developer for my Youtube channel, but the Evaluation of the Game is not affected. Balthazar's Dream is a beautiful platformer/Jump & Run, not too heavy but not the Easiest. The Game contains many different Elements, which you have to use to cross large Canyons, for example. The Soundtrack of the Game is beautiful, the Artstyle is also very nicely pixelated. You can choose a Dog at the Beginning of the Game, which you can play, among other things, also a Pug. By and Large, you can say that the Game is worth it, who is on Platformer and likes a crazy Story will do nothing wrong, it's a solid game and so far no Bug is discovered. Only the Price I feel set for something too high, but everyone needs to know this for themselves.

      Product received for free (game received free in Exchange for a video, very soon put online on my YT channel, and promoting their future Kickstarter on their next creation). In this platform game, one is in the dream of Balthazar, a dog whose master is in the hospital following an accident. One has the choice between several breeds having each of different characteristics (more endurance for example). The game is very beautiful in the genre pixel-art and the animations of the dog frankly funny to see. The gameplay mechanics are quite varied from the first chapter, which makes the levels a bit difficult for a neophyte of the genre as I am, but not impossible! I have for now reached only the second chapter but I intend to go to the end as this game is fun to play.
