Pineapple Works has announced that it has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Dreamed Away, which is planned to come to Nintendo Switch.

From French developer Nicolas Petton, pledges will support the game’s development which has a story that centres “on the often fluctuating bond between siblings, fear of death and the experience of questioning reality.”

Heavily inspired by games such as EarthBound and Omori, this pixel art RPG stars a little boy called Théo who becomes lost in a dark and mysterious world that seems like a dream. On a rainy summer night, he wakes up in his bedroom to realise that his parents and sister Louise have disappeared.

As he searches for his sister, the true nature of the world lays itself bare. Ghosts, Phantoms and Revenants haunt the catacombs and dark places that he wanders – where he is always a step behind and never able to catch up.

The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:

  • Aesthetic pixel art
  • Immersive storytelling that takes you on a journey to solve a mystery
  • Fast-paced combat system made of mini-games which mixes turn-based strategy with bullet dodging and unique time-based QTEs.
  • Unique abilities and equipment
  • Psychological horror elements
  • Detailed and aesthetic pixel art with varied colors and environments that bring you from a vibrant, peaceful atmosphere to those dark and mysterious places
  • An original soundtrack by Nicolas Petton.
  • No random encounters

Dreamed Away will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Q1 2025.
