Frey Smith has been experiencing terrifying nights since one week. When he goes to bed he can hear agonizing cries, strange sounds, an invisible and evil presence next to him... He bought this nice and cheap house, looking forward to a calm and normal life, but now he is starting to regret it. One night, overwhelmed, he decides he has to put an end to all and as soon as the torture begins he steps out of his bed to investigate from where are those horrible screams coming from. As hours pass on the nightmare will get more and more intense and a dark secret will be revealed. Will Frey survive the dark night in his house and discover the meaning of these bad dreams?


Darkest Dreams is a short old school dark horror game meant to last about an hour. It is necessary to have the RTP to be able to play.

Available languages: English, Spanish.

Coming up next are some reccommendations to hype the experience of playing this game:

- Play in the darkness with your headphones on.
- Be aware of details and get inmersed in the story which develops as you go further into the dream.
- You can play window or full screen mode, though it is better to use the window mode since the textures used in the game aren't meant to work 100% in full screen (not 100% but should be pretty fine).
- Enjoy the game as much as I enjoyed making it. ;)

Final Update!

It's been some time since I released the last version of the game, but I decided to do a final update, guys!

I was encouraged to do a final review on some flaws the game had and decided to polish it to the point that in this final release I think I have finally fixed everything there was to fix and added a couple of new surprises! If you plan on playing the game, are currently playing it or simply want to relive the experience I highly recommend on downloading this update.

I'm also still working on my next game called "No Place Like Home". If you want to keep updated on progress you can freely search for it in this same website.

Hope you enjoy. See you around!! ;)

If you got that ending you didn't burn it in the right room. There is another ending. ;)

And thanks for playing!

Found a glitch. When you go in the office the first time and come back out, you see the spider. When you run back in the office, the screen stays faded out.

The character should stop when you see the spider, so I'll check that out, thanks!

i got the ending with the protagonist is the real culprit is the bad ending or the real

If you can see the game credits in the end and not a game over that is the real one.

random thoughts may include spoilers

the game folder and game exe are 2 different names is the game name darkest dreams or dreaming dark?

how do you hear noises in reality after falling asleep? i think this person is using a translator or nay english is not there main language XD
that aside i assume it was more like getting rdy for bed not actually sleeping.tho you can hear sounds in your dreams its not worth worrying about.

this is a somewhat painful experience. the grammar is sometimes a bit awkward in some areas but not necessarily incorrect
it kills the immersion :3

those ???? on the save screen! :D

have the shading effects (nice) and added interactivity with things that aren't particularly important another +

indeed horror is the worst genre in gaming/story telling romance comes in 2nd
doors always locked for no reason included a front door and even tho its your own house you dont have your keys with you?
what house even has locks on doors outside the exits and some not all bedroom doors?!

when you think about it,its kinda funny the character talks to themself. for the sake of the player having information :3
maybe why they end up beign victims :3

the triggering is REALLY good tho so far. knowing(remembering really) how the engine works you put a bit of time into this

Why???
it first says hat you need to destroy the book in the place ????? left it before he was taken by the demon
it then says that you need to destroy it where it was written
if both are the same place why say it again???

either way i dont get how someone would be confused on how to get another ending its as obvious as your gonna get


Story thoughts spoilers

indeed horror is a terrible genre using the genre as a excuse for things to not make sense. but that aside
im looking at the endings there are 2 i assume anyway (good job on that btw)
tho i am disappointed that both lead to the same result the difference being the information given to the player.
i would of liked the simple ending to be a happy end and the true end be the other one.

and the extra end with the new residents i don't like that at all because then information that builds the scenario and plot were lies...thus making it pointless to tell you if you do this the curse will be lifted.
with the true end this also doesn't make sense.as why would other people be punished???
are you saying its impossible for the curse to be broken?
tho this would i guess explain the mountain of corpses i assume they are all victims of this and not ritual victims to set this up

not a fan of pure despair plots but outside some awkward english to me anyway
it was well written


Overall
the triggers were mostly well done
the story was..unexpected
the mapping was good
the effects were good
gameplay 30 minutes or less

this was a good game recommend it
Thanks for playing, shayoko! ;)

The exe thing is my mistake, the name is Darkest Dreams. Apart from that, you are right, my first language is spanish so my english can be awkward at some points lol sorry about it. I respect your thoughts about the story, it can be debated if you like some time. See you around. ;)
After reading multiple comments about the game, discussions, videos of people playing (thank you very much to all :)) I just realized something I wanted to ask to anyone who reads this post. Ill hide it just below because it's a bit spoiler:

Did anybody at all encounter the huge beast in the Underground zone of the Cavern of the Vigil?? I have seen a mention to almost everything spooky in the game except this. Maybe I should even consider it an accidental easter egg LOL

Thanks for playing mate, glad you enjoyed! :)
Would bit be okay if I made a Let's Play of this game QuQ I would love for it to be the first game to start me off!
Of course, and thanks if you do!!
Here's Part 1!
{Edit: Part 2 and part 3 are up and running!}
