Prepare to cock your head in confusion like a cute puppy in a hit YouTube video, because Detarou's Dream Factory is one strange escape game... even by Detarou standards. It goes without saying that you're trapped somewhere weird, but this doesn't look like any factory floor I've ever seen... unless this is where they assembled Tingle and he's been the result of a horrific experiment gone wrong all along! Just click to navigate using the grey bars that pop up at the edges of the screen, and again anywhere else to interact when the cursor changes. Items can be used by clicking once to select them, or double-clicking to get a close-up view. Since there are multiple endings, you'll also want to make sure you save every now and again too.
Part of what makes a Detarou game so much fun is the way clues tend to be hidden not only everywhere, but in different places. While it may be fairly obvious you're looking at a puzzle solution, you'll usually need yet another clue to figure out how to implement it, and connecting the dots in such a way is extremely satisfying. Dream Factory is no different, and filled with plenty... odd... and surprising moments to boot... though unfortunately at least one of them might be a little uncomfortable and suggestive for some players. If you don't offend easily, however, Dream Factory will definitely need you to put not only your thinking cap but your sleuthing pants and detective mustache on. It's complex, sneaky, on the longer side, and full of the off-kilter strangeness you've come to expect... even if this doesn't look like any dream I'd want to have on a regular basis.
