Unreal Engine-Powered ‘Dreamscape’ Coming to iOS Next Week

Posted In Apple news - By Tariq On Tuesday, May 31st, 2011 With 0 Comments

The Unreal Engine by Epic Games is nothing new to PC and console gamers. It is used as the back end to many popular titles such as Unreal Tournament, Deus Ex, the Tom Clancy series, BioShock, and many more. On iOS, the Unreal Engine is the magic behind the graphics powerhouse of a game known as Infinity Blade. Yesterday marked the announcement from speedbump studios that their new game titled Dream:scape would be launching next week (June 9th to be precise).

Dream:scape is the second Unreal Engine-powered game to come to iOS. From the screenshots and preview trailer on speedbump’s website, it looks amazing. The environments look rich and full of depth. The dynamic lighting is great. From speedbump, Dream:scape is described as:

…more than a game. It is an interactive narrative experience, an immersive exploratory environment, a haunting journey that will become your world.

Take on the role of Wilson, a coma patient relearning his past by exploring the dreamscape of his memories. Only there, in the lucid light of the subconscious, buried secrets are revealed, unraveling a decades-old mystery of tragedy, betrayal, and ultimately, revenge.

Features of Dream:scape include:

  • An engrossing story told through interactive 3D environments.
  • Lush original score by composer Isaias Garcia.
  • Interactive creatures and animated objects as you overcome the haunted guardians of memory.
  • Nearly thirty seamless acres of entirely open-world exploration, featuring fully realized interior and exterior locations.
  • Unlockable Free Roam options.
  • Intuitive controls and in world interactions.

This definitely sounds like my kind of game. Dream:scape was originally submitted to the App Store a few weeks ago, but was only able to run on the lastest and greatest hardware (read: iPhone 4, 4th-gen iPod touch, and iPad 2). Thankfully speedbump took the time to go back and rewrite Dream:scape so it would be able to run on the iPhone 3GS, 3rd-gen iPod touch, and the original iPad. This move is sure to make many customers much happier. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game. In the meantime, you can check out the preview trailer for Dream:scape below:
