Can you find Jack’s Heart?
On Friday, publisher CFK officially released 3D puzzle game SOWON: Dream Adventure on Steam PC.
Developed by Korean indie studio PUMKIN (ALTF4), SOWON: Dream Adventure was successfully crowdfunded on Tumblbug in 2019. The game puts players in a fantasy world where puzzles are solved by using “dreams, memories, and time in its own unique way.”
Here’s the official breakdown of SOWON: Dream Adventure from CFK:
SOWON: Dream Adventure follows the path of little Sowon, a child of one of the members of the development team, as she ventures out into this 3D puzzle adventure. Sowon wakes up in the middle of the night, stumbles into a locked-away attic that drops her into a toy world, and embarks on a journey to find her parents and return to her world.
The toy world is beautiful and mysterious, but full of bizarre sights as well. In this world of living dolls, meet everything from the most hideous of dolls to the most desired. With different shading and lighting in each background, every stage presents its own unique flavors and elements to keep things fresh.
All sorts of puzzles await you during your trip through toy land. Talk to all of the dolls, find clues, and use tools to find your way. Players must solve puzzles with Sowon and find all the hidden easter eggs to become the only one able to locate ‘Jack’s heart.’
Sowon, wandering in search of her missing parents, stumbles upon a secret place through an attic that has been locked for as long as she can remember. As she looks for clues and solves the mysteries there, the house collapses, and she falls into the world of toys.
Sowon loses her picture of her parents… but then she meets the leader of the toy world, Jack, the scientist, Clover, and a self-made creature that collects pictures, each moving toward their own goals…
