An undetermined amount of time has passed since the Saint, successor of Great King Domnhall, ascended from the Common Dream. Stories of his adventures have spread far and wide, tempting many to enter the Dream in search of the mysterious, wish granting Abyss. You are one of these nameless dreamers. Disillusioned with reality and with little purpose left, you hope that the Dream can reunite you with someone you once loved and lost.
Lovecraftian dream world filled with mystery, complete with cosmic deities and eldritch beasts
Challenging combat that respects the player's ability to learn and adapt
Procedural level structure as well as tons of different weapons and trinkets to ensure endless replay value
Modern roguelike structure, where dying means starting the game from the very beginning with a few items and upgrades carrying over from your previous run
Progression system where the difficulty increases and more content unlocks each time you reach the Abyss
Dreamlike atmosphere built with unique, monochromatic pixel art and rich audio to match
While After Gloom references characters and events of previous games (Gloom and The Treehouse Man), it is a standalone story and a solid entry point to the world of Common Dream.
