A format that would prove iconic: crucial to the game’s identity. Thedevelopment of having 2 distinct play styles, one experienced through “The Real World” withharsh and earthly mechanics & the other though the “The Dream World”, fraught with physicsand logic only comparable to that of the mind of a child, made us realize how to maximize onhaving authenticity by contrasting game mechanics.

Many of the members of the development team have had to face trials and tribulationsof a similar degree which made empathizing with the main character natural.
