The sixth and final chapter of gorgeous handcrafted adventure game The Dream Machine [official site] will arrive on May 11th, developers Cockroach have announced - six-and-a-half years after the series started. Oh the wait has been long but the games have been more than worth it. The Dream Machine's the story of a husband and wife who move into an apartment and soon discover a mysterious machine is surveilling and messing with residents' dreams. It's well-written and a treat to look at, built from clay and cardboard. Here, have a peek at Chapter 6's workshop in this trailer:
Yeah, the news is a few weeks old, but that hardly matters on the timescale of The Dream Machine. When John told us Wot He Thought of Chapter 5 in 2014, he said:
"The series was extended to six chapters earlier on, and the set-up for the final entry is superb – I'm dying to know what it's going to be like, now knowing what it’s about. Whether I'll remember that when it eventually appears (once more described as "a slew of months") I'm not sure, but I'm hoping it will be before 2015 is through. Meanwhile, chapter 5 is an excellent entry in a really wonderful game series."
2015! Bless your heart.
May 11th it is. Yes, you will still get Chapter 6 'free' if you bought The Dream Machine back when it was meant to be five chapters.
