A downloadable game

REM is a platformer game set in a dream world. The player must travel through her dream and then escape her nightmare, they will encounter many obstacles along the way only with their trusty plush can they make it to the end. REM has two main mechanics for the player to utilise both with dual functionality. Slam to break objects blocking Rem's way and also use it to navigate the level and gain extra height. Throw the plush can be used similarly to break objects, hit enemies, hit buttons to trigger in game events and it can be used in conjunction with the soul shift mechanic where the player can control the plush.

The game can be player either with keyboard and mouse or a controller (Please note that all menus including death screen will need to use the mouse to select which option.)
