Wake the Dreamer is the indie alternative to Nintendo’s Tomodachi Life

Wake the Dreamer for iOS is the highest-concept game we’ve heard of all week, and that’s definitely saying something. It’s one of those games that takes a good paragraph to understand, and hey, that’s what I’m here for. Judging from the designer Ali Sakhapour’s description and from the trailer, it’s a life sim and dream simulator, which actually reminds me a lot of Nintendo’s surreal Tomodachi Life reveal, except decisively more indie-fied. The game takes place between two worlds: the dream world where all kinds of crazy shit can happen that affects the real world, and a real world where you try to afford a bigger house. The project sounds ambitious and has my interest piqued.
