The Dream Machine Chapter 5 review

The Dream Machine's episodic structure has been... sporadic. Chapters one and two came out in January 2011, with the rest promised soon after. Chapter 3 appeared in November 2011, taking longer than expected. Which was nothing compared to chapter 4, which finally appeared in August 2013. It was quite a wait, and rather a short entry. It's been slightly over a year since, and now…

Have You Played… The Dream Machine?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Cockroach certainly never intended to take nearly five years to finish hand-made point-n-click The Dream Machine. What was intended to be six chapters over a few months has become essentially one a year. But with each one better than the last, and the…

Wakey Wakey: The Dream Machine Chapter 5 Next Week

The Dream Machine's first chapter was so lovely that, in a fit of something or other, I vowed to wait until the whole thing was out before playing any more. Well. Whatever reason I had for that decision, I hope it was worth it. Four years later, the end is drawing near-ish. The fifth chapter of six will arrive on November 14th, developers Cockroach have…

The Dream Machine Chapter 4 review

Hand-crafted point-and-click The Dream Machine is taking Swedish indie devs a lot longer to make than they'd planned. So it's a shame that this extended development is really the series' only weakness. As Chapter 4 finally appears, almost two years after Chapter 3, the story of Victor and Alicia is pretty hard to have remembered this far on. But it's worth remembering, because this continues…

Nightmare’s Over: Dream Machine Chapter 4 Almost Here

Well here's a spot of good news. The fantastic The Dream Machine series has awoken from its almost two year coma! I cannot believe it was as long ago as November 2011 that the third chapter appeared, but post time stamps never lie. Chapter 4 is due to appear on the 1st August, with promises of an enhanced look - and more importantly, a continuation…

The Dream Machine Wakes Up On Steam

Just a quickie - the first three chapters of the extremely good cardboard-and-clay The Dream Machine are now up on Steam. You can still buy them directly from developers Cockroach if you'd prefer, and those who already did will receive a complementary Steam key. Steam has the first two chapters (bearing in mind that the first chapter is available for free) for £3.19, and the…

Sleepless: New The Dream Machine Footage

A new trailer for the wonderful The Dream Machine has appeared, which rather nonchalantly includes lots of new footage from the forthcoming chapter 3. Which looks... intriguing. The Dream Machine is one of the best written and most interesting adventure games in years, built entirely out of clay and cardboard, and glacially released in chapters. However, the new footage also contains the surprise at the…
