The story is Inception meets bits of the Lost Symbol, the gameplay is Call of Duty meets Street Fighter, the game is DreamCasters Duel!

DreamCasters' Duel is a unique video game set in a networked dreamscape and combines a 3d 3rd person shooter with a fighting game!

DreamCasters' Duel, is a mod that truly deserves having been called "unique1" by the media. It has also won praises for its "great concept, story, and promising gameplay.2" In addition to praise, DreamCasters' Duel has won several international awards. Perhaps most remarkably, DCD is the work of one man over the course of several years.

Set in a networked dreamscape (registered as "Dueling Dreams" (WGAw# 1109915), over 4 years before Inception), DCD combines elements of a 3D third person shooter with a 2D side-scrolling fighting game. Characters can do battle with whatever weapons can be dreamed up; a school girl’s teddy bear can come to life and assist in combos, piranhas can be called from thin air to devour an opponent, and bikini-clad mini-gun toting mercenaries can be summoned to run-and-gun down the enemy. Part super-powered shooter, part fighting game, DreamCasters' Duel will astound gamers dreaming of playing something uniquely FUN.
