Once upon a time there was a great magical performer who entertained crowds with his tricks and illusions.

But when the one he loved died, he stopped performing and lost the will to live...

...until one night he had a dream...

It gives me some exposure while the people who make the videos get something back in return. I fully support the monetisation of any video you make containing footage from my games. As long as you don’t claim to be the creator of my games, it’s all good! Throwing my name, SeethingSwarm, as the creator into the description or into the video itself is also always appreciated.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

A nice game to thing and the atmosphere the sound of the animals with the music it's so relaxing and made us think while playing it.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

It was a lovely game in terms of graphics, music, atmosphere and game design, though it was a shame the controls weren't smoother.

I'm so glad you like it! I agree that the controls are a bit clunky. I was still learning a lot about making games while creating The Illusionist's Dream and I did my best. I'm still learning a lot, but I'd like to believe that I have improved over time. Anyway, thanks for the kind words and the nice score :)

This game is so beautiful. The message, the game play, the music, the artwork, everything. It can be pretty challenging, which is a good thing I think because otherwise it would be way too short. It is a lot of fun being the different types of animals. The atmosphere for me implies loneliness, isolation, and hope. Like one of the reviewers below me, I have to come back and play this every now and again. Thank you for making such a beautiful game.

You're very welcome, and thanks for the review and the kind words! I'm so glad you like this game :) You're right, I did try to create an atmosphere of isolation and loneliness with a tint of hope and it's great that you saw that. It's really nice to know that some people are still playing this game. It's definitely one of my own favourites, and it holds a lot of meaning to me personally.
