Jelly Dreams is a Confectionery Puzzle Fantasy

Just about every little kid has loved sugar a bit too much at some point, right? That’s the basic idea behind Jelly Dreams, the upcoming confection from Brazilian developer Firecast Studio. The hero, Nino, always wants gelatin for dessert (commonly known in many countries as jelly), and his mom doesn’t think it’s such a great idea. But in his dreams at night, Nino can have all the jelly he wants!


To deliver Nino his sweet fantasies, players must solve entertaining puzzles through the arrangement of colored cubes of jelly. The object is to guide Nino so that he maneuvers the blocks into position to make pairs and trios of matching colors disappear across eighty levels, making use of magical potions and portals as he makes his way through the different brain benders, all the while letting out occasional shouts of joy.


Inspired by the Sokoban genre, Jelly Dreams takes place in a colorful cartoon world. Nino has a choice of three kinds of dreams where he can enjoy his desserts, with different environments that include Treasure Island, the Magic Forest, and the Old West. Players can dress Nino in one of seven different costumes. He’s asleep, so his pajamas are there, but you can also dress him as a cowboy, a pirate, an astronaut, a superhero, a soldier, or even a dinosaur.


Jelly Dreams will become a reality for players on April 26. Developed in Unity 3D, it will be available for PC, Mac, and Linux gamers for $3.00 USD. A demo version is presently available from the website; the completed game will be playable in English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, and both simplified and traditional Chinese. Check it out on Steam Greenlight, and watch for the debut announcement on the game’s official Facebook and Twitter.
