SAGE 2023 - Demo Dormiveglia - A Dreamlike Journey - [Updated 2022 Demo]

General Information


Dormiveglia is a 2D indie metroidvania developed by Round Cartridge, with a focus on puzzles and narrative.

The journey begins from Spring Plaza, a peaceful village on the north of Elysium, one day Quinn is woken up by an inhabitant and asked to help them deal with the Sorceress Somnia who has suddenly invaded the Plaza for mysterious reasons...

Quinn is one of the Four Heroes, individuals set to watch over the four towns at the corners of Elysium. Each town is named after a season and have a key monument that characterises them; From Spring Plaza's immense Clocktower, to the impressive Battle Arena in Winter Arena as well as the Gong in Summer Crevasse and the Radio Tower in Autumn City.

The journey will task Quinn with searching for four ancient Runes before Somnia and her Nightcrawlers get to them first, allowing her to cast a powerful spell that would put the entirety of the world into an eternal slumber.

Along the way Quinn will tag along with the other three Heroes and explore the many fantastical and dreamlike areas of the world like Dawning Islands, Midnight Mines, Noon Nests and Twilight Tundra, each explorable area hosting a dungeon to conquer and more pieces of the mystery to piece togheter...

With their trusty whip, Quinn can do all sorts of actions to traverse the environment and solve puzzles! Lasso enemies and throw them, carry things, push, pull, grab and drag, whip and break. Study your environment carefully and use your moveset accordingly to proceed!

The 2022 Demo is what most closely represents the game, from its visuals to controls and music, we aim to make Dormiveglia as polished as possible.

This Demo includes the entirety of Chapter 0, which is the introductory chapter of the game.

Gorgeous art direction, writing and animation that's nice and cheeky where it needs to be, excellent sound design, solid feeling controls, and a main character with a whip.

Time to get out the big ol' bucket of popcorn and hope this makes it to full release sometime, because I'm digging it.

Dormiveglia is an amazing narrative driven platformer! The game is set in a beautiful, and brilliantly, brightly colored world, filled with memorable characters, who feel very much like real people. Quinn is quite a loveable main character too! I especially loved the opening scene of her waking up. The story seems like it is going to be quite an interesting one and I look forward to seeing how it unfolds in the full game! Gameplay wise, it reminds me a bit of classic Castlevania mixed with a bit of Bionic Commando, but the lassoing mechanic really makes it stand out.
I look forward to seeing what the future holds for this project and to revisiting the demo after SAGE.
