Mimpi Dreams is a sequel to Mimpi where you explore eight different worlds to find your human. Mimpi Dreams is more about just exploration during his dreams which can get strange pretty quickly. I haven’t played either game in the series before but from what I can gather after some investigation and personal experience, I can safely say that I’m almost positive this game is just for kids. Yeah. Mimpi Dreams does have some colorful and interesting environments which you would expect to encounter in some of your dreams. Can’t speak for dogs, having never been one myself but Mimpi may have experimented with some more exotic foods if you know what I mean.
I would definitely say to use keyboard and mouse over gamepad for this game. Having to use the right analog stick and right trigger for all interaction outside of jumping is really annoying to do because the cursor speed is really slow, but it gets the job done. I imagine it would be a lot easier to play on mobile. The puzzles are very simple, art style is cutesy, and aside from the main menu, there is a serious lack of music. That being said, you can get the OST for free on Steam right here.
Now, I wasn’t able to complete the whole game but I got through 40% of it in just under 20 minutes but had to stop because of two reasons:
- I ran into a bug where one of the plugs I needed disappeared after I moved it from its initial spot and then dropped it to do something else. There was no cord or anything for me to grab onto and move it back.
- After encountering the bug, I couldn’t find an option to restart from previous checkpoint and I couldn’t be bothered to do the whole level again since there was a lot of just waiting in the elevator segments.
If there was an option to just restart from last checkpoint, that would be immensely helpful. Also, as a tip, each of those balloons with a “?” are just hints. You do not have to click on these since they actually eat up hint bubbles you accrue by playing. You do end up with a surplus since once you unlock a hint, it’s permanently unlocked but chances are you would never need to use any hints unless something just isn’t conveyed too clearly.
That being said, the environments are quite lovely and interesting considering the dreaming aspect of things. There’s even a link to the store in the pause menu where you can get a plushie and some shirts, so check that out.
