DARKEST DREAMS REMAKE by SPM


------------------------------------------------------------------


Frey Smith has been experiencing terrifying nights since one week. When he goes to bed he can hear agonizing cries, strange sounds, an invisible and evil presence next to him... He bought this nice and cheap house, looking forward to a calm and normal life, but now he is starting to regret it. One night, overwhelmed, he decides he has to put an end to all and as soon as the torture begins he steps out of his bed to investigate from where are those horrible screams coming from. As hours pass on, the nightmare will get more and more intense and a dark secret will be revealed. Will Frey survive the dark night in his house and discover the meaning of these bad dreams?

-------------------------------------------

This game is a Remake of my first ever game made in RPGMaker VX Ace (which is also available in this forum, although it is allready more than 5 years old lol). This one is made completely from zero in RPGMaker MV, and counts with new textures, new features, new gameplay and another twist to the storyline. If you played and liked the original, 5 years ago, you will enjoy this one even more. If you have never heard about this... welcome, and enjoy this original nightmare!!!

Darkest Dreams is a short old school dark horror game meant to last about an hour.




Features:


- Horror and exploration gameplay. Be aware of your surroundings, explore and be always alert for not so obvious surprises.


- Interactive puzzles and riddles.


- Intense moments where tension can overflow.


- Two languages available: English and Spanish.

For those of you who want to play in Browser: RPGMaker MV itself has some problems with opening the game in some browsers like Chrome because of security reasons. The only one I got it working was Firefox by doing the following (I'll add it to the main post):


In the browser address bar enter the following command:

about:config

Press [I'll be careful, I promise!] button.

In the search field type:

security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy

Double click this item, it will change from "true" to "false".

Restart Firefox and it should work.


I imagine that for other browsers there has to be something similar to make it work but I have to investigate a bit more. I'll tell you if I can fix it.




ENJOY!!!!

I play a bit and see if I give feedback/suggestion if needed.
(no promises), but if I do, it's up to you if you use it or not =)

EDIT:
got caught by error: Cannot load data/Actor.json so I cannot test it.

I imagine it is the Browsers version of the game that gives you this error.


I forgot to mention that RPGMaker MV itself has some problems with opening the game in some browsers like Chrome because of security reasons. The only one I got it working was Firefox by doing the following (I'll add all this to the main post, sorry):

I dont use firefox and my browsers are up to date and I configure it that
it will work always, but I rather play on windows than browser, because
most battlers lag in browsers or have loadings ALOT when changing maps.

window version is smoother and less likely have this issue. or use something
like Itch.io or GmaeJolt if you want to play only so it does work better than the
download and open in browser, but I prefer windows, so I can also play "offline"
in case connection failed.

The house part was sometimes creepy, the maze part was scary,
and some other parts as well, I'm not a real horror fan, but there are
some moments in this game, I'm current probably half way in a scene,
how it happend, so I play further.

there might be some mistakes, will tell later, but nicely done.

EDIT:
I beat the game, but the last part was hard, I had it on my 3rd try, but still
checked the other rooms to make sure.

it was an interesting ending though, but here is something you might missed.

in the starting, you had the text something Like:
"When I close my eyes I can even feel it's breath,
but when I open them there is nothing"

I think it should be like this (if not mistaken):

"When I close my eyes, I can even feel it's breat,
but when I open them, there is nothing"

with comma's after "eyes" and "them".

I can be mistaken though, but the game was nicely done.

Well, ShadowDragon, first of all thank you for playing and I'm glad you enjoyed. :)

About the text you might be right, not sure because I'm spanish really so my grammar may be a bit incorrect sometimes. I'll take a look at it though.

I'm bad in grammar too, but someone that knows it nicely can correct it,
but that there is something you need to explain which I dont understand
on the riddles.

if you lose 24min every hour and its 3 am missing 1 hour, what time is it?
while 24x 4 is 1 hour and 20 min (not accurate), I know it's not 4, so I assume 5,
but the answer is 6 which doesn't make sense or I dont understand it fully!.

even if the riddles are nice, some simple, repeat the same 3 makes it very easy
to pass it.

My suggestion/feedback here is, create 12-15 questions and an another
below it to check if variable = 3, if it is, you pass, if wrong, reset variable = 0
so you can always random question if told so.

this makes it one side harder, but also more interesting, so you need either
remember the questions on the answer, but never start with the same :)

but I think also when zombies lures in the hall, I think, add 4 in the room above too,
but I'm no horror fan, but the looping and story (start and end) is intresting.

there are some glitches when trying to go out when you need to burn the book,
one over lap, but in the start when you need to go the the attic, 1 or 2 mosters
go highwire, not sure if that is the event or movement on it.

but I think this is one of the better horror game with fright effect in it.

that's all I have to report, keep up the good work :)

Yes, I already thought about making more riddles and make them appear randomly so they are not the same always.

I'm working on adding that in update 1.2 along with other bug fixes like the ones you saw, and more things.

Hello people, I'm glad to announce that version 1.2 is already available after some dedicated work!!!

In this update I've corrected more minor bugs, a couple of translation errors and I've also added some new stuff.

There is a new random riddle battery at some point in the game (not going to spoil it if you haven't played or finished playing yet, but the people who have already got to that part will understand, like ShadowDragon :) ) and also some new additional spooky surprises waiting around some corners of the game. You'll see. :)

With this version I think I might (MIGHT LOL) have finished definitely with the game, unless anyone sees some other glitches and wants to share them with me, in which case I'll be glad to correct them. Time will tell.

See you around, guys!! ;)

I speed run it once and see if it's changes and for the new surprises you added.
but I still want you explain the time of the hour riddle to me if possible.

Sure, ShadowDragon, as a matter of fact I have included in this update the same explanation I am about to give you, but with the new riddle battery maybe you will not find it, so here it goes:


It's 00:00 and the clock is ok.

After 1 real hour it would show 00:36, as it loses 24 minutes each hour.

1 more hour and it would show 01:12 (another 36 minutes, as it loses 24 each hour).

If we continue like this until the clock shows 03:00 we have a total of 5 real hours.

Since the clock stopped after that 1 more hour it's 06:00.


By the way: I know it is a tough one LOL.



And angosllo, thank you, I hope you enjoy if you play it!!! :)

I did 3x 24 + 1 hours, so I ended up on 4, while that was wrong, I asumed
it was 5 , but even that was wrong, but that explained a bit more.

so I calculated it somewhere wrong, but thank you for the explanation.
A way I didn't though of it yet. But I got the others correct.

Will play around and see what I can found, probably not much, but if the
maze doors are the same, door 1 is maybe 1 of the hardest and is really
well timed, as for door 2 2nd hardest, you need to remember because
I failed once there.

but I loved the ending, something I never exspected.

WIll report back if found or not, but tell how it went.

EDIT:
Tiny typo's and suggestion (suggestion can be skipped, but more dynamic
to make it scarier (I think)).


ONLY AUTHOR OF THE GAME CAN LOOK AT THE SPOILERS!
this might spoil your fun if you didn't play it yet!

As I said before, comma's are missing, you placed 1, but missed 2 (in my opinion)
SPM_start.png

Time on the wall shows 9 0'clock, nicer if it's shows 3 O'clock
same with 2 am starting I think? up to 5AM? it can make it more accurate
but you may leave it how it is!
SPM_time.png

Same here on the clock, its 4AM but shw 9 O'clock, but there are some issues
to fix here.

1) when facing the clock and press "left" it strafe left but not look to the left!
unless you hold it or press again when on the chair.

2) the blood spatter below it when walking on it will face the player UP.
I dont know if this is intensional or not.
SPM_srtafe_time.png

Same here, the spatter will face you up, I dont know why, but there might
more more spaces
SPM_FU.png

Furthermore, I love the new riddles, but still slightly error in there, because I got
twice the same questions which I think you set a variable and that variable
sets the 3 questions.

but in Overall, nicely done.
