Daydreamour

Daydreamour is an extremely short (~10 mins) platformer about a developer daydreaming about running. Jump and climb your way through a perilous factory! This game was made for a Locally Sourced game jam bundle in ~5 days using Unity.

Struggling with a creative block, the developer needed something to jump-start their drive again. With a sigh, they opened a new tab in their browser and began scrolling through videos – something they usually do when they can’t make any progress. While watching a video, they noticed a peculiar parkour video being recommended. Curious, they pulled up the video. It was someone running through a factory, jumping off walls and avoiding dangerous, forgotten machinery with jumps of precision and timing.¬†They was astounded by the prowess of the runner in the video.

Going down a rabbit hole of parkour videos, the developer could feel the creativity rushing in. Ideas of parkour filled their head and, like that, they got trapped in a state of daydreaming.
