A downloadable horror game for Windows

Lucy's Dream is a Victorian-style puzzle horror adventure across two interlinked dimensions.

Gameplay revolves around the player switching between two realms with subtle differences in order to solve puzzles while trying to overcome the horrors of the mansion.

The game was made in twelve weeks by a small group of students from Finland.

Thank for this game !

This game has a lot of potential!! The puzzles weren't impossible but the added threat of being hunted makes them challenging. Love the interactions between the two worlds adding some jump scares. I really hope to see more in the future!!

Wow! I just played the game and was SO surprised by how well done this game was. Obviously I'm wanting more and this could be expanded into a longer game with a storyline, but wow.. I loved that! Puzzles weren't too hard or too easy and there was a good sense of fear switching in between each dimension and working quickly as to not get caught. 

tehe im a little late but this game was so cool! i grew up playing horror games and it's hard to find aything scary, let alone interesting after playing, basically, everything. But to my suprise, this was a concept I've yet to see! (or at least don't remember seeing?) i LOVE how the enemy looks like a creepy doll we've all probably been scared of as a child, and how they look into closets and cabinets when they're left open. such a small detail made this game just that much enjoyable! and the fact that you can switch dimensions by just covering your eyes, so neat! This truly was unlike anything I've seen, great job! (i must say though, i was sad once the game ended-)

i thought this game will be long but still i enjoy to play it

What a great game this turned out, it so so much potential, and was upset it ended. I love the parts in the game where you have to avoid the doll and solve puzzles. The graphics are amazing and the part where you closed your eyes to travel is amazing. Happy Holidays!!!

hi, big thx for the really good game. greeetings from rosti 🙏🎅😘

I really enjoyed playing was creepy and took alot of thinking to solve puzzles and really liked that you had to change between realms

THIS IS AMAZING. And why did I get jump scared at the little things-


Muito interessante esse jogo. como os controles são ensinados utilizados os blocos e a mecânica de cobrir os olhos para mudar de dimensão. Um bom jogo, vale a pena conferir

Hi! I enjoyed the game, specially the little details like the way you teach controls to the player, the child lower camera position and  the "cover your eyes" mechanic to change dimensions. Good job guys!

  I would also appreciate if you could give an opinion on our latest game. Game devs advice is precious because we know better what it takes to make something work. It's called "Backdoor Shifts"

This game was really impressive, especially considering how it was made in 12 weeks! I really enjoyed the dimension mechanic and the puzzles overall! Keep up the great work!!!

Visually this was amazing, loved the gameplay and the enemy's pretty scary too, the sound effects are great, and the concept was neat as well, good work :)

Thank you for the feedback and playing our game! ^^ It is very appreciated.

 scary game

Then we have succeeded. :D Thank you for playing!


Thank you so much for playing! ^^

Such a cool feature to such a simple puzzle horror game! I loved this! I can't get over how cool it is to switch dimensions to solve puzzles all while hiding from a HORRIFIC MONSTER! TOTALLY WORTH THE PLAY!

Hahaha this was so fun to watch, thank you so much for playing and enjoying the game! :D

Having the ability to switch dimensions on the dime is great and the monster itself is creepy. I kinda wish the key items for progression had a distinct aura to it. Beyond that, Great job.

Thank you so much for playing the game and for the feedback! ^^


This was FANTASTIC! Really interesting to switch between realities, and the fact that the puzzles span between both realities is a very nice touch! The monster is terrifying, and had me very hesitant to walk through the house.  The graphical style, sound design, level and puzzle design, and overall gameplay were all very nicely done, I can't find a single thing to criticize this game for! Amazing work, I had a blast playing this!

Great video!! Thank you so much for playing our game, we are happy you enjoyed it! :D

Hi there, I am DragonExplosion and I am a Youtuber. If you like my videos, please leave a like and subscribe at my channel.

Even though I did not manage to complete the game, I really liked the concept of the game where the main character is able to travel to 2 different dimensions of the same world to solve puzzles to unlock doors. This is a really cool and fun game and I believe that anyone who play the game will enjoy it. The only issue that I have with the game is just about the storyline of the game as there was not much context given to me throughout the game as to who am I and what am I doing in the house. Maybe there were clues and I missed them but story-telling was quite lacking for me throughout the game.

I hope that other players will play the game and clear the puzzles as well. The quality of the game is definitely comparable to famous horror games that have been released and I am sure everyone who played the game will have a good time. :)

Thank you for reading my comment and I wish you good luck in your future endeavours.

Thank you so much for the playthrough video and feedback! :) It is much appreciated.
