Cats, vacuum cleaners, bath tubs, and other things get in the way of the canine hero of Balthazar’s Dream, but when it comes to saving its master, this dog will not back down.
After falling into a coma after being hit by an ice cream truck, Dustin shows little hope of waking up. His dog, Balthazar, rests by his side, though, his own dreams haunting him as he refuses to leave his master. Within those dreams, players will help Balthazar deal with the manifestations of his canine fears, while also following the spectre of his master in hopes of rescuing him.
Players will platform through worlds created out of doggy foes, fighting off cats with a bark or larger monsters with a rolling attack. Players will also have to avoid the tub and other household items that would upset a dog, and all whil clambering around on ropes, running through forests, and searching for bones across ten different stages of oddball worlds. Not only will they be platforming, but they’ll also take Balthazar to space, having him go through shmup-like sections.
Balthazar’s Dream is available now on Steam.
