Critic Reviews for Lost Dream Darkness

Lost Dream: Darkness feels like a big pile of nothing most of the time, and it doesn't have anything to offer for someone looking for an in-depth and complicated experience. If it wasn't for its sound design and convincing nature setting, this game might be getting kicked off a mountain for what it's done.

Is simply meandering through somewhat barren landscapes really “gameplay”, no matter how serene?

That’s basically Lost Dream: Darkness. A bland game where you walk from one point to another. This feels like a pretty good project for a new developer testing the waters in game development. The trouble is this does nothing to stand out; there are other better wolf options or walking simulators out there. As it stands, this is something that might catch gamers’ eye as a cheap pickup on the eShop. For me, I get more soothing for my soul by going for a walk and listening to the birds. This was not the meditation session I was looking for, leaving me more confused by the presentation of the game than relaxed.

I think resources such as alegories, moral lessons, fanservice and references can be used to enrich what is already pleasant and not to make something good. Thus, these elements are not enough to null plot or direction issues in a movie, narrative issues in a book or even a shallow gameplay in a game. For that reason, Lost Dream Darkness ends up not having big merits because, though it left me intrigued and thoughtful, it failed a lot as a game.
