Full game releasing 18th October 2022

Ride your bike around the small British town of Figgington to meet its sardonic residents. Use your map to explore every corner, from its run-down town centre to the local pub as you discover the town's deepest, darkest secrets.

Learn techniques for dream control and enter Lucy's mind to unlock hidden memories, discover the past and unearth the disturbing truth behind her recurring nightmares.

Along the way, you'll need to solve a huge variety of puzzles, so pour yourself a nice cup of tea and bring your powers of observation, logic and lateral thinking.

From her dysfunctional family and the cynical Figgington townsfolk to the myriad of extraordinary characters from the depths of Lucy's subsonscious, do you have what it takes to pacify giant crabs, interrogate old ladies, satisfy toddlers and bargain with trolls? Just don’t forget your teddy bear.

GREAT JOB DEV LIKE IT

Thank you, and thanks for taking the time to put together a playthrough too! :)

A great demo, had much fun playing it!

Brilliant, that's great to hear! :)

You already know I like LD and this demo is a great ramp to send you flying towards the full game's bigger world. Lots to speculate & wonder about. I hope we get to see the whole family eventually. :) Waiting for the Kickstarter.

Fantastic! Thank you for the playthrough, I loved your comments about her parents’ bedroom 😂

Oh, hehe... I could be wrong though. Maybe once inside we'll find out her parents are very... 50 Shades of Grey. :) 

Really happy to finally be able to play this!  I am very excited for the full release and will absolutely be backing the game.  The art is lovely and the care and attention to all of the custom responses is extremely fun to explore.  I definitely found a few unexpected Easter eggs as well. 

What kind of of wacko young girl keeps a venus flytrap and a pirhanna as a pet?  And with that messed up family situation?  It's no wonder she's having trouble sleeping!

I really took my time exploring and trying lots of stuff,  but I found the difficulty pretty breezy overall and would have been able to complete most of the required puzzles in about twenty minutes or so if I wasn't taking my time.

I did get massively stuck on one puzzle: warming the milk.  I eventually worked it out, but I feel like there were several equally viable options that kind of red-herringed me away from the intended solution.  First, there were the matches and candle that Lucy decided she did not want to pick up - that would be an elegant solution.  Also, I was convinced the lightbulb in the hall would be able to do the job.  Finally, I know how hot old laptops get, so I wanted to sit the glass on the computer and turn it on.  This puzzle might do with a bit of tweaking or signposting in the full release.

Also, small bug (literally), a hotspot for the fly seems to remain in Lucy's bedroom even after the little pest has been relocated.

Congrats on the release of the demo and wishing your kickstarter campaign the best!

Hey, so glad you enjoyed playing it. Thanks so much for the suggestions and feedback too, I really appreciate it! 😊

I’ll see if so can add a few more custom responses so that and potential red herrings lead you in the right direction, it’s kind of a symptom of having so many interactive items in each scene, there are naturally some things that could solve the same puzzles. I prefer not to have multiple solutions, but will definitely add in some more signposts for the options you’ve tried!

I’ll look into that fly hotspot too. She will react with “It’s gone.” If she reaches the fly too late, but the hotspot should disappear as the fly is flying! Leave it with me 😁

The fly bug has now been squashed! :D

Haha, I've tried the same three options before I found the solution!

Probably it's so hard to solve because Lucy has huge pigtails which cover some areas where the solution may be :)

This is genuinely AMAZING!! I'm a sucker for point-and-click and 90's so this was so much fun!! I'm really excited to see more of this in the future!!

Awesome, that means so much to me. Watching your video now! :)

I love this demo, so many references to the classics, good puzzles, nice graphics, humor, fully voiced, etc.

That’s great to hear, so glad you enjoyed it! ☺️
