When his young owner falls into a coma, his faithful dog lies down beside him, following his owner’s lost spirit through his doggy dreams in Balthazar’s Dream.
The dog’s dream is made up of cats, bones, fire hydrants, bouncy beds, and other things that might occupy a dog’s mind. The player must platform their way through the world, solving puzzles using balls and other handy tools a dog might use.
Players will need to be careful along the way, though, as chocolate and grapes are dangerous things for a dog to have and they seem to be lying around everywhere. Also, there is another entity here besides the spirit of the dog’s owner, and the dog will have to face it in order to see his young master returned to the waking world.
An early demo for Balthazar’s Dream is available on GameJolt.
