really damn nice. Feels very melancholic to play, I love the different environments. Spent hours on just walking around the different dimensions, trying to find something while finding nothing, but things that feel like something that probably really are nothing. I liked it.
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
A destination to explore, full of sights and sounds for the curious voyager.
The unknown might seem all encompassing at first, but walk in any direction and familiarity will lead you home.
It is said a hundred dimensions exist, some large others small.
Intertwined by a legion of doors with wayward intentions.
Somewhere an elusive ending meanders about, will you find it?
*A first person peaceful adventure suitable for all ages; There's no violence or scary things :) *This is not a guided tale, but an introspective journey exploring a vast dimension. There's no "traditional" gameplay. *Photosensitive epileptic seizures warning! A percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that appear in videogames such as this, please refrain from use if susceptible.
"An incredible journey through unexplored worlds, packed with amazing sights rendered in a riot of color and effects"
"A nice vacation from reality, and a pleasant stroll through spacetime"
"Find myself drifting back every so often because it never quite settles. I feel vaguely like a ghost with unresolved business"

how many big secrets would you say there are in this game?
mmmmmmmm thank you :)
is it weird that i want more?
Really enjoyed this! played dreamsim the alpha ages ago and this is even better. Did a video here:
Yo I've never commented on anything on itch before but just had to say this is awesome, I love it. Nice work!
Why is there a file in the folder called "steam_api.dll"? Can i add this to my steam library?
Oof that's a lingering sideeffect from integrating the game into steam and should have deleted it on export, sorry about that! It won't actually do anything or integrate with steam unfortunately because it needs another layer of authentication on steam's part.
Is this compatible with an Xbox controller?
HOW MANY WORLDS ARE THERE DUDE ARE YOU GOOD?!?
Hey!! I'm good just took a little break haha, roughly 100 worlds? Some big some large...
is there anyway you could post a guide how to achieve the "ending"
Hey! So I personally don't want to do a spoilers but if you go to the steam community page there's some amazing folks that are documenting the process ;)
It is such a beatiful and artful game. I just have a questions: where are the screenshots saved?
the screenshots are in 0n0w_Data > Photos
Thank you so much!! as @bolidage replied its in Data/Photos :)
Would love macOS support!
Me too tbh but it's been hard at the moment to support a mac release, working on another big project so after I'm done with that I'll look into porting this over :)
Does the itch.io version work with VR?
Hey! Not at the moment but no reason why I shouldn't upload the Oculus beta build here as well, stay tuned :)
Hello! Please don't put blanks in file names. It's bad for handling them in the Linux terminal.
Hey! Thanks for the heads up, admittedly had no idea so I'll keep that in mind for the next Linux export :)
oh hey, you're the person who made Becalm! cool
WOW, this game was fantastic to walk through. I immersed in the worlds the whole time I played. I felt at peace while playing.
Thank you so much!!! Yesss that's what I was going for so it's great to hear you felt that calmness of the experience :) Thanks again!!
Is there a door in every world?
About 80% of them have doors, then theres some with only portals and / or other means of egress. There's def no dead end worlds if you where wondering, there's always a way out :)
I would definitely play just i play on mac:( please release on mac
On Linux, even though the mouse is locked to the game window, there's still a limit to how far I can turn in either direction. Very distracting.
There's a warning for photosensitive epilepsy that says to "immediately stop playing" and then the logo that you see right after that has flashing colors. You should probably be a little more specific at least, like, "press alt+F4 now". But really, a prompt for "continue?" would be conscientious
A continue button would be more conscientious after the photosensitive warning, I've just moved the disclaimer to the bottom of the page right next to download, so it's not as easy to miss. Thanks for the input on mobility issues with the experimental and unstable linux release, It is a pre alpha demo that I included after many support requests to try to export one. As I mentioned before I'm currently a solodev and unfortunately do not have the means to thoroughly support another OS in development.
edit: Particularly with linux (which i love) but theres so many distros and hardware use cases that i get so many differing reports about it working in one but not the other that it's honestly overwhelming at times. Hopefully soon I can sink some time into getting a good universal release but for the time being Wine + PC version might be the best bet :)
the very definition of vibe.
Thanks for making it for free, it was a great experience!
I cant imagine how much work the game design was..
You're welcome, glad you enjoyed the experience! Oof it was a lot of time haha, also my first gamedev project so almost 5 years of learning and development :)
What an amazing experience! I love it. Thanks!
Hey man, let me just tell you that what you are doing is awesome. Trying to help people in quarantine pass the time by making your games free is absolutely phenomenal. I got like all your games and Im really excited to see what they are like( they look stunning from the screenshots).
(Oh and I paid one dollar for 0'N 0'W to help you out a little... its not that much, but Im tryna save up money as I wanna have some money for when I graduate high school).
Aight thats about it. Good luck colorfiction in your future as a developer and take care :))
Thanks so much and glad you've been enjoying the games / staying safe during this difficult situation!! While I really appreciate the donation <3 please, please save up for when you're done with highschool, you're going to need everything you can save up for trade school/ college / starting something up :) Best of luck finishing up your studies!
Beautiful work! Does it have an ending? I explored for a gorgeous hour.
Thank you!! Glad you enjoyed it, there is an ending of sorts found in one of the worlds :)
Would it be possible to make the experimental Linux build available? If not, what will get it to work using WINE?
Hey! Just made the linux version available, important to note that there will be occasional visual glitches and some disparity in how things look in the screenshots, trying to fix this but this is a good preview :)
When i start the game, my character looks up and spins right? Anybody have the same experience? any fixex?
It's a fun little game that does let you go on a weird adventure through strange worlds, I rather enjoyed it.
Some of the worlds that you to go did hurt my eyes a bit, the ones that were a bit more gentle on the eyes were fun to explore.
this is game is 32 bits?
This whole game blew me away. From the well-filmed, well-edited intro, to the gorgeous graphics, to the ease of getting to a new place, it was really transportive at a time when I was really feeling low--I'm a high school teacher and I'm really worried about my students. Thanks again for making it, and for gifting it as well.
Thanks so much for kind comments and sharing this :) Really glad to hear it helped out during this difficult moment! Wish you and your students the best! (ps: dont give em too much homework ;p haha)
gracias por el regalo
The things you build are amazing, you get the community and your super nice. You are the best developer.
Aww thank you so much :) <3 You brought sunshine to what is a very foggy silent hill-esque day haha
thanks for the free itchio version Color!
Will this one be getting a Linux build too?
Hey! So i could enable an experimental linux version but problem is there's visual disparity between the windows build that uses directx and linux that uses opengl. Some things are missing, lots of "shader pink/black", and users reported bugs so I temporarily removed it from itch. To workaround this the projects being ported to the latest game engine but dont have an eta on that release yet unfortunately.
Wait, was all this generated? Or each piece of every world is hand-placed?
Looks awesome ! Maybe you should make a demo ?
