Manolidis Aimilios Nikolaos’ indie game I dream of you and ice cream will be hitting the Switch eShop on 17 June 2020, for $4.99 USD. The point-and-click adventure sees players on an Earth ruled by a sinister, doll-like entity – and helping one scientist build a mysterious machine without it noticing…
Check out the official Switch trailer below, along with a quick synopsis:
A sinister creature has enslaved mankind. Solve puzzles, gather components for a machine you are building, find comfort in your dreams.
I dream of you and ice cream is a game about imperialism, the loss of identity and personal sacrifice.
A sinister, doll-like entity has enslaved all mankind. Inside the complex where, every day, the entity questions world leaders about aspects of humanity – a potentially lethal process – an old scientist of unspecified gender is building a machine.
Clinging to a few precious memories, with each passing day the scientist gathers components and toils on their obscure project, as the clock ticks relentlessly towards a horrifying climax.
I dream of you and ice cream is a point-and-click adventure game with a very simple interface and an emphasis on puzzle solving. For every two puzzles solved, players are rewarded with a partial solution which can be used in another puzzle.
There are no spoken lines or written dialogue in the game: Everything is communicated through speech bubbles, symbols and emotions.
