Extra Message from Zijian(Product Owner/Programmer/Level Designer) :

        About this project: This was a somewhat wayward project during my master's program, hoping to build a relatively standardized production workflow through a complete game demo. The original intention of this project was to allow friends to enjoy game design without the hassle of tedious work like coding. Therefore the three levels in the demo will have a relatively different design style, thanks to the designers of each level. (You can see the designers of the different levels in Credits.)

        About the gameplay: The gameplay originally came from another project I did in my game design class, Geometry Shift. I decided to expand it into a more complete game project, which is now DreamConnection, and thanks to the Geometry Shift team members at the time (detail in Geometry Shift page).

        Special thank you to Ayça Durmuş , without whom this project may never finished. To Micaela Cederlund without whom we wouldn't have gotten top grades for this project in connection to playtesting class. And Finally, thank you to Mingyue, our great artist.
