Dreams can be Deadly

Welcome to Oniria, the Land of Dreams

Oniria Crimes is set in a near future where the thaw has caused the sea level to rise, the world’s main cities are flooded underwater. New York, Buenos Aires, London, Rome, Barcelona, ​​Cairo, Beijing, Tokyo, Sydney … are just rusty memories among the fish.

The dream pioneers, called oneironauts, have founded the first dream city: Palace of Desires, around a gigantic scarlet monument named in the same way. Palace of Desires is a changing megalopolis where humanity’s dreams come together.

In this new world, a revolutionary discovery has restored hope to humanity. The so-called «De la Llave Method» allows communication through sleep, opening a new unexplored frontier: Oniria, the Land of Dreams.

The survivors of the catastrophe form a global mass of refugees, while cities on high ground have become fortresses full of luxury.

Solve crimes in dreams

Just before the first democratic elections, a serial killer is disturbing the peace at Palace of Desires, capital of Oniria. The Rounders, an elite body of investigators, must move fast because the clues are volatile in the dreams land. They will have the help of the objects at the crime scenes, which are the witnesses of the murders.

Making matters worse, a secret plot is moving in the underworld. The Guilds of Oniria are fighting a hidden battle to control the future of all the dreamers. While everyone seeks their own interests, the natural inhabitants of Oniria, known as Kabus or «nightmares», are getting closer to the dreamers…

Oniria Crimes is an adventure game that takes place in Oniria, the Land of Dreams. Help Detective Santos and Inspector Torres to investigate crime scenes as part of the Rounders, a secret society that pursues crime in dreams.

Oniria Crimes is a combination of visual-novel-like story with point&click mechanics similar to graphic adventures, where the objects will help you to figure out what happened in the crime scene.

Oniria Crimes features a 6-chapter story with a mystery plot, oniric objects with their testimony, puzzles that hide key clues, dark voxel theme and appealing progressive music. And the first adventure voxel game!
