Lost Dream: Darkness from Ultimate Games and Morning Shift Studios is a bite-sized 3D walking sim with a mythical fox protagonist. You’ll experience a silent story in a world that has been engulfed by darkness. As you walk through mountain tops and forests, every step you take will bring you closer to the light, and closer to salvation. It’s a short journey that shouldn’t take you more than 20-30 minutes to complete.
The controls are very simple for this one. You’ll control the fox with the left analog stick and rotate the camera around as needed with the right one. The B button will be for jumping, and the A button will for attacking so that the fox has a chance to protect itself… which was weird since there’s nothing that will ever try to attack you. On top of that, the controls feel a bit floaty. The fox’s jumping, which is needed for the first segment in the game, will lead to having to repeat that segment a handful of times, so that you can get the timing just right to clear each gap without falling into the abyss.
Lost Dream: Darkness is a 3D walking sim in which you play as a mythical fox that is trying to escape from the darkness as it runs towards the light… and that’s about it. There’s not much to do other than run towards the next area, with a silent protagonist that explores each location with the ambient sounds to keep things going. You’ll be done in around 20-30 or so, and there’s nothing in here that would make me recommend it. Lost Dream: Darkness is out on Nintendo Switch for only $4.99.
