"You are having the same dream again... the dream where everyone must die."

Dying Dreams is a puzzle game where you control several characters at the same time and try to ki... ehm, eliminate them all. Yes, that sounds less brutal. (No it doesn't)

This is a "complete HD" version of the original that was made for js13k competition (2022). You can find the original here.


Keyboard and Xbox controllers (and controllers using similar API) are supported.

  • Arrow keys (or left analogue stick/dpad): move characters
  • Enter (or [Start]): Pause game (you can restart the level and undo a move also here)
  • R (or (Y)): Restart a level (Note: on keyboards with French layout this is apparently some other key that would be in the same place as R in a QWERTY keyboard, I have heard)
  • Backspace or Z (or (B)): Undo a move.

Great as usual!

This is very well done. The puzzles are both simple and intricate. They take some planning to complete. Also, the thme is funny, to boot.
