The GameDreams. What are dreams actually? Do we really know?
Let me tell you of an orphan boy, barely remembering his own mother and father. A subject of bullying since young age and living in a dirty, old orphanage.
That was his prison. This is where he tried the unthinkable twice, just to escape from it.
Until one cold night in November he dreamed it. He dreamed a green meadow, covered in flowers on a sunny day. The birds were singing, there was a sound of running water nearby and a gentle, female voice was calling him from a white, wooden house. "It could not be her", he says to himself while dreaming. But it was her. His mother was standing on the doorstep, looking for him.
From that moment, he started coming to that house every night hoping that he will speak with his parents and that maybe, he will find out why they left him when he was still a baby. At least that was what he was thinking in the morning, remembering this colorful magic dream, that he had the night before.
That was his escape. There he was free. InspirationI have always loved the presentation and the beauty of a games such as "Journey", "Abzu" and "The Witness". These games made me think about the most games on the market these days with all the gore, fast-paced action, and I decided to create something different. I hope that, with your help, "Obscure" will become the beautiful, relaxing adventure that I want it to be.
I have to say that my inspiration does not only come from games. In "Obscure" you will find a lot of subjects that come from different books, ancient texts, interesting theories and more.ContactI would like to get as much feedback as I can in order to make "Obscure" better, so if you have any ideas, critique or you just want to get some more information for yourself, don't hesitate to contact me on the e-mail I provided.

Thank you! I wish you all a kickass day!

Early Access Review "Obscure-Challenge your Mind" is a first-person Adventure with elements of Quest and platforming. Gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDV7468iMLM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HzIAb0V-nA Plot: Play for the Orphan, who at a young age was in a children's home. He doesn't remember His parents. The Orphanage was a prison for him. From bullying and deprivation every night the orphan escapes into their dreams. In These dreams he gets into his little small house with a small house on a green meadow, covered with flowers and bathed in the sun. There He is waiting for his mother and father, warmth, coziness and a fascinating adventure. Maybe He'll know why his parents left him. In any case, while he is in a dream-he is free and happy... The Creators of the game inspired masterpieces such as "Journey", "Abzu" and "The Witness". "Obscure-Challenge your Mind" turned out to be light and good. This is an adventure in a fictional world with magic, with secrets and everyday trifles, which many do not appreciate, but appreciates the orphan, who since childhood deprived of family warmth and home comfort. The Gameplay is a mixture of adventure and quest. Wander The open world with a meadow, a house, a lake, trees and islets soaring in the sky. The main character has an unusual skill. It can make platforms to get to any place, having built from them a ladder or a bridge. It'S his dream! He's the boss and he's capable of a lot! In that element platforming. To perform some quests will have to create structures and jump on them. The Graphics are good. The World turned out bright and beautiful. The game has nice music, good sounds, but there is no voiceover characters. All dialogues are accompanied by text, and the characters do not even stir their lips. This is a small minus. The rest is very cool! Riddles and quests are quite easy. The game has secrets and in-game achievements. Find hidden objects and get all the achievements of a very exciting occupation. A great game for lovers of adventure and touching stories. So far in early access. There are non-critical bugs that do not hinder passage. You can read other reviews and subscribe to our curators. Welcome! 5 minutes of game

Product received for free Early Access Review "Obscure-Challenge your Mind" The Main character of the game is a little boy who barely remembers his parents. Now He lives in a shelter, which became a prison for him, and only in his dreams he finds refuge from the outside world. Every night he returns to his parents ' house, trying to understand what happened to them. In These very dreams and happens the action of the game. The Gameplay is a study of the world and the solution of simple puzzles, the "chip" of the same game is to create platforms to get to this or that remote place. The Developer, in his own words, drew inspiration from such projects as "Journey", "Abzu" and "The Witness". And Indeed the game feels the impact of these projects on the author from the first minutes of the game. It's Funny that in the game on the coffee table is a disc with the game 35MM, which first came to my mind when I recalled other games with the same level of study on the engine Unity. + Excellent Study of the world and small details + the Game looks excellent, especially considering the engine Unity, the developer and here tried to fame + Nice music + Well-Written texts and Dialogues + the author of the game listens to the opinion of the players and constantly Improves the game (at the moment updates are released in the middle of every 2 days)-Optimization so far limps, on the Ultra graphics game is better until not even try to run-a Few controversial decisions in terms of gaming design, some of which are a consequence Developer's desire to squeeze the most out of Unity engine, and some simply because of lack of experience. -Baggie, where without them. A Couple of times fell through the textures after the jump (Yes, it is possible). Disappearing cursor in the menu and other small joys of life. At the time of writing the review on July 25 in the game is 0.07 build and at the moment the updates are released every 1-2 days, so most of the shortcomings are likely to be corrected in the near future. While It is difficult to recommend the game to buy because of the abundance of bugs, yet Early Access has only started, but to follow the project is definitely worth all fans of the genre.
