About the Story

There is a free demo available here: https://nathaniel-holle.itch.io/the-dream-dilemna-free-demo-version

The Dream Dilemna is a 60,000+ word twine game, where you are stuck in a maze of dreams and have to figure out what is real. Your actions in a previous world will have no effect on the current world, but each world has its own branches, so your decisions do impact what happens in each world. It has two different endings, each resulting from a decision made in the last layer. There are a couple sci-fi worlds, and a couple fantasy worlds, among others. You can talk to a number of interesting characters in the game, including Iltara (a half-succubus), Ilgerenda (Iltara's daughter), Evan Times (a research mage who attached dragon wings to himself), and Sir Raulin Wylde (my version of Don Quixote).

Is it real?, May 16, 2017
This is a great game where you are never quire sure if the world you are in is real or imagined. The writing was quite good and the plot very original. It did pull elements from thrillers, King Author legends, and sci fi novels. Add to it a bit of philosophy and it becomes a deep, engaging game I wanted to play repeatedly to find out more.
