About this project

‘Inner Dream’ is a modern fairy tale about dreams. What if time frozen when you were sleeping? How could you wake up if everything around you now looks like a photo? Find your way in the world of dreams and make clock ticking again to find your way back to reality.

Imagination of the protagonist, who lost in his dreams, will lead the player in the farthest corners of the mind. Here, the hidden worlds of the subconscious reveals their true colors. The events of real life, echoes in his dreams, and the silence around like a frozen vacuum of space.

Inner Dream is more artful than usual games. This is a combination of photography, music and mysterious story in one place.

Inside our game you'll find:

- Photo-realistic graphic. All locations in the game are made on the basis of photos.

- Memorable characters, each of which pursues it's goal in this world.

- An interesting plot - everything is not as it seems at first sight.

- Atmospheric soundtrack from 'Keratordash' and 'Taskless Sheep' bands.

We just published first episode of "Inner Dream" named “Night One” for free.

You can try the game right now and dive into the magical world of strange dreams.

Right now we working on PC version of our game, but if we'll find enough funds - we'll try to make versions for other platforms.

The whole month we give out 'Desound' album from Keratordash for free!

Keratordash is a music band (experimental IDM) from Evgeniy Kolpakov and Philip Lehner.

'Universal Signal' tune from 'Desound' album is a main theme from 'Inner Dream' OST.

You can download Keratordash album for free here: http://www.keratordash.com/Keratordash_Desound.zip

Or buy it from iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/desound/id512823210

(or other music sites - check keratordash.com for information)

For prospective indie-developers KickStarter - this is one of the few ways to find the necessary budget for the game.

For us backing on KickStarter is only way to make our 'Inner Dream' real.

We don't need millions of dollars. Just 11.111$ will be enough to make full version of our game.

Press about Inner Dream:

Indie Game Magazine: "Once again, the use of photos by Sometimes You is very impressive in this latest effort from them. From forests, to seas and city landscapes, there are some really striking images for the player to gaze upon as well as explore as they make up the game’s environment. The fact that your mouse movement causes the screen to tilt adds to the effect greatly. Accompanying the photos are drawings which are similarly engaging in their depiction of a boys journey, which ended up being the more interesting story despite being a sub-plot."

Now we are the part of Kicking It Forward movement!

'Sometimes You' is a creative duet: Evgeniy 'Pinkerator' Kolpakov and Alina 'Chester' Ovchinnikova. Evgeniy is responsible for programming, and Alina for graphics and design. Our first game 'Retention' was released in 2011.

Please help us spread the word! "Inner Dream" is our most important game.
