Between dream and nightmare, the border is thin...

Developed by a French independent studio, Bad dreams is much more than a simple game. It is an immersive experience out of the ordinary, where your survival relies entirely on real actions. You will have to react instinctively to survive this frightening universe.

Your eyelids become heavy, the sound of the television fades to fatigue and you plunge into this dreamlike world where dream and nightmare merge.

You wake up on an idyllic beach, your feet in the white sand, lulled by a light breeze as the sun sets on the horizon. During this quiet walk, the gates of hell open to you. Driven by your pride, you think you can pass through them without suffering the consequences, but soon the perfect dream in which you found yourself turns into an oppressive nightmare with no way out.

You were warned.

Your goal? Get out of here as quickly as possible. You sense that this huge underground complex has the sole purpose of driving people to insanity.

Fight for your existence in an atmosphere where madness is palpable and anxiety grows with every step you take.
Will you dare to dive into the endless abyss of Bad Dreams?

Forget everything you thought you knew about horror games, because Bad Dreams transcends the boundaries of the video game experience.
This experience pushes you to endure and overcome your greatest fears and is therefore not for the faint of heart. For the bravest among you, prepare yourself for an immersive experience unlike any other, where horror comes to life and every moment can seal your fate. Face your inner demons, overcome your deepest fears. But remember, never, never succumb to madness...

Bad Dreams plays with your anxieties and reactions to allow you to live each moment intensely.

Puzzles: Solve the puzzles that litter your treacherous path. Some of the puzzles may seem simple at first, but when you're beset by creatures lurking nearby, things get complicated.
