Some people are willing to travel quite a distance for a good meal and/or drink; across multiple countries. But traversing desert dunes… for a sip of tea? Must be some genuinely good stuff, The Dream Tea. Why else would Dagdrøm‘s protagonist be willing to embark on such a journey? Why indeed.
Further adding to the oddities is how the main ingredient for The Dream Tea is The Dream Juice. Quite a fair amount of dream stuff around these parts, eh? Oh, right: for those who don’t speak Norwegian (or Danish, as it means the same in that), ‘dagdrøm’ is ‘daydream’ in English.
Survive mysterious separatists, face The Stone Golem and cook a wide selection of broth based soups…
Anyway, as the game begins, we find that this so-called “favoured refreshment” has run empty. Completely empty. Not a single drop remains. Could people simply drink something else in its stead? Well, I have this strange feeling that is an absolutely bonkers notion, given how much The Dream Tea’s importance is emphasized on the game’s store page.
That aside, what’s the deal with The Great Tower, and why is getting a train ticket supposedly rather tricky? Did the absence of The Dream Tea cause a lockdown? Ah, maybe it will all make sense by the time the credits roll on its three-act storyline. Sounds like quite a Dagdrøm, in any case.
