Africa: Developer Journal

Africa: Developer Journal

Tracy Spaight, the designer of Africa and VP of R&D at Rapid Reality, brings us an Africa developer journal on an element of the game called The Dreamscape. The Dreamscape is an alternate reality that players can explore within themselves.

How do you know, beyond any doubt, that you’re not dreaming right now? Philosophers and poets have pondered this question for millennia. To the dreamer, the dream realm can seem as real as the waking world. In Africa’s “dreamscape,” the boundary between the waking world and the dream realm is a hazy one: players will be able to step into their own dreams and adventure in the primeval forest of their unconscious mind.

The dreamscape is a randomized, instanced space that players can explore when their characters sleep – which they must do periodically. In the dreamscape players can receive visions, undertake quests, learn new skills, and hone their spiritual powers. They may find hidden sources of strength that will make them better hunters, warriors, and shamans in the waking world.

You can read the journal here.
