Lucy Dreaming is a hilarious journey through a young girl's recurring nightmares. A point & click adventure heavily inspired by writer and developer Tom Hardwidge's childhood love of classic LucasArts games like Monkey Island.

What began as Tom’s dream to have the voice of Guybrush Threepwood himself play a role in his own adventure game became reality when he and his wife Emma nervously approached Dominic and he said yes. Dominic was keen to return to voice acting too.
“People tell me they don’t understand why I haven’t worked on other games over the past decade,” Dominic explains. “The truth is, nobody asked! I was thrilled that Tom and Emma were able to make it happen. And a quirky love letter to graphic adventures like Lucy Dreaming felt like just the right opportunity to jump back in.”
Now a successful dining critic, he didn’t realise at the time that his former career was about to be reignited, not only by Lucy Dreaming but also Return to Monkey Island six months later.

Tom Hardwidge says “It was a dream come true when Dom agreed to get involved in the game. We wrote a character just for him, inspired by his career as a dining critic. It’s been amazing to work with someone who is so much a part of adventure game history and my own childhood.”

Lucy Dreaming is due for release later this year after overfunding on Kickstarter back in 2021, and a 30-60 minute spoiler-free demo is available for Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS and Android.

Tall Story Games has already created a series of shorter titles which have been very well received within the adventure game community.
Hair of the Dog was produced in just 12 days for a game jam and has since been downloaded over 20,000 times on desktop and mobile. The short game follows a member of the Victorian gentry as he investigates the mysterious disappearance of his uncle.
