ShackNews Reviews Video Game that Debuted at IndieCade 2011

ShackNews, one of the leading gaming sites on the internet, recently ran a review of 
The Dream Machine, a video game that made its debut at IndieCade 2011. Says reviewer Jeff Mattas:

In the words of Cockroach's Anders Gustaffson, who I spoke to at the recent IndieCade festival in Culver City, CA: "There is something shady going on in the apartment complex, and they have to find out what it is, and try to stop the persons responsible."

"Being more than 30 years old, I really appreciate the fact that you're not firing a gun in the game, and that it's actually about a real-life relationship at the very core," Gustaffson continued. "It's basically about a guy who's trying to make his family life work, while being put in a very strange situation."

Gustaffson adds that his influences in creating the game were cinematic.

"We've been watching [Roman] Polanski's 'The Tenant' quite a lot, and we're big fans of [David] Cronenberg," he said. "[They both take place in] a slightly off-putting universe that makes you feel guilty by watching it, like a co-conspirator. That's a quality that we like in the works of both Polanski and Cronenberg. I also like the television series Fringe, and some of the more bizarre and trippy Star Trek episodes."


Dream Machine is available for on-line play
here. Check it out. It's pretty fun.
