The Dream King is the world's first 4-Player Co-op &

Versus Side Scrolling Action RPG
that combines elements from

multiple differing classic gaming genres
into a single, incredible "Metroid-vania"

type of indie video game!



In addition to it's unique blend of features,

there's also a big focus on the gameplay,

story, and characters!


The Dream King will immerse the players in an enormous
high fantasy world
with a wide range of characters and story!
It is being developed for multiple platforms including Windows,
Mac, Ubuntu, and possibly even a big release
on the major home consoles a bit later on!


Endica VII The Dream King also features
fan created content from our Kickstarter Backers,
such as Reize from Shovel Knight and also featuring
a few bonus tracks from the world famous
Secret of Mana composer, Hiroki Kikuta!


We are preparing for our first worldwide

release on Steam very soon!

Omg! I haven't seen footage of the game for a couple years, but loads impressed, wishing the best you earned it several times over with your talents, if I'm even capable of inspiring you in any way I'm glad to have helped with to help create this masterpiece. I'm glad you're seeing this through and not letting go of your dreams, not everyone can create something from just a dream and turn it into a reality everyone can share with you. I believe in you and always have had faith in your talents, your friend Chon

It's Eric: I'm just curious as to whether or not I can still run this "lone wolf" as in, by myself similar to an original Mega Man or Metroid/Castlevania game. I like the idea of having multiple characters in CO-Op, but I really want to make sure I can go the adventure alone, with one character at a time.

Hey Eric, good to hear from you again! Of course! There is also a single player mode where you can choose any available character that you want! Also, a lot of the gameplay settings adjust to accommodate how many characters are playing at once and also which difficulty setting you have chosen, things like the total number of enemies, their hit points, stuff like that!

Just a recap of the game, it is a 4-Player Cooperative and Versus "Metroidvania" Action RPG! :D
It is still early alpha but it's going to get a lot better soon! A new demo will be available in September!
