    About Us and the Project

    We from Virtual dreams would like to present you with the opportunity of working on a project and thus upgrading your resume/ portfolio. We believe the most important aspect in an artist’s impression is his portfolio. Our current project is a narrative-driven psychological horror game that will take place in a mansion and will focus on environmental storytelling. The title will be “Photographic Memory” and the engine planned is Unity Engine.

    Our focus now is to develop a short demo. If it receives positive feedback, we will continue to develop the rest of the game, which will be split into two installments (episode 1 and episode 2). The script for the demo is only five pages long and you can check it out here:

    Here is a summary of the plot: “Mr. Hawksworth’s son, Julian, was passionate about photography and developed the habit of taking at least one photo every day, documenting his daily routine. One day, however, he fell in a river and drowned. After minutes without oxygen, his memories were lost. In a desperate attempt of recovering his memories, the doctors sent him home and showed him his old pictures. They were unaware of the dark secrets that would be revealed by such action. Julian goes missing and Mr. Hawksworth must return home and explore his mansion, in order to unveil the truth over the fate of his son.”

    Our team currently consists of several highly talented individuals; ranging from a pair of modelers, level designer to voice actors, music/sfx engineer and programmer. A good amount of progress has been made and we assume that with your support we will be able to achieve the rest in no time.
