ABOUT THE GAME
Dream Revenant puts you in the mind of Carson Hughs, a man straddling the edge of death, lost in the deceptive beauty of his own dying dreamscape. Exploring the halcyon visions of Carson’s youth, decades’ old tragedies lurk to the surface, revealing a dark mystery that has plagued Carson for his entire life. As oblivion edges ever closer, Carson dares to unlock the secrets of his father’s unexplained death and the heartbreak of his lost childhood love. Little does he know, however, that the threads of fate are connected just below the surface, leading to a dark revelation that can only be uncovered in the lucid dreaming of death’s final moment.
ABOUT THE SCORE
As the sequel to the best-selling iTunes game "Dream:Scape", Isaias Garcia brings back old themes along with new leitmotifs to weave in with the new storyline in "Dream Revenant". The orchestrations are lush, beautiful, and hauntingly enchanting, taking you between the world of dreams and beyond.
Dream Revenant's soundtrack has received wide critical acclaim by the top mobile game reviewers, with some critics calling the score "beautifully crafted", "haunting and memorable", and "raising the bar for mobile game storytelling."
"The pitch-perfect score helps build the delirious atmosphere of the dreamscape."
"The soundtrack is perfect, lending to the creepy feel of the game."
"I opened Dream Revenant late last night on a whim. An hour and a half later I set it down, tears running down my cheeks. It's a powerfully moving experience, perhaps the most powerful I've experienced on the iPad to date."
"This lovely soundtrack is the music to one of the most beautiful iOS you will have played, Dream Revenant, by Speedbump Studios. The melodies are haunting and soul-engaging."
