Dreaming Souls is a platform adventure video game designed and developed by Shooting Star Studios and published by both Nintendo and Microsoft Studios. The game is going to be released during late 20XX for Nintendo SwitchMicrosoft Windows and Xbox One.

In this game players asume control of four kids: LilithMatthewWilliam and Meredy, as well as their cat pet Sokrates who can help with a few abilities. The kids can travel through dreams and reality in a decaying Earth, obtaining magical abilities through the course of the game that will help them solve puzzles and interact with the environment. Its gameplay is inspired by games from franchises such as Metroid.


As a 2D open world platform adventure game the player controls a group of four kids: LilithMatthewWilliam and Meredy, as well as their pet cat Sokrates. All of them will help each other in order to progress through certain obstacles or reach places they can't reach normally. Even the cat helps on that. There is some kind of mystic thing happening on this game too: the kids can travel through dreams by using portals. These are dreams of the people hoping for a beautiful Earth, without hate, despair, war, sadness... as well as dreams of people's good desires and wishes. But there's also the bad things. While you can also travel the current, horrible decaying Earth in the reality, you are also able to travel through nightmares, which mostly contains more dangerous enemies and surprises. 

The game's world maps are extremely open and explorative, the kids interact with the world's and dreams' environment and solve puzzles and facing enemies in their way to restore Earth. The kids will also collect Health Orbs, new abilities and Soul Dreams, which are collectibles needed to complete the game. A map can be used when dream portals open, linking them to their point of origin in the map so the protagonists can travel through them from afar. Save points can be found in all dreams and the reality, allowing the player to save the game and appear in the latest save point used.


"The world is not like it used to, now coming to an end covered in war, technology domination, contamination, destruction and darkness. Families, friends, everyone is slowly dying and disappearing while Earth keeps becoming the disgrace the human kind started.

But not everything was lost. Shining sightings appeared as different pure children around the world were attracted by its light. Deciding to follow the light, four kids started an adventure through cruel reality and hopeful and beautiful dreams. Dreams of saving Earth from its demise."

Full story coming soon.
