A downloadable game for Windows and macOS



"Greetings, my dear client. I am Reed, a dream-specialized demon. Welcome to my office.

From the data I've gathered on my website, it seems you're having trouble sleeping, no? Pesty nightmares just won't leave you alone. How utterly horrible!

Fear not, my dear, you've come to the right place! If you make a contract with me, I'll get rid of all of your night bogeys, just for you.

However, keep in mind that every service comes with a price. As payment, you will have to grant me some of your good dreams. 

So, what will it be? Do we have a deal?"

✦  ✦  ✦


"Featuring my dear Hazel as the protagonist... and myself as the helper. No, no, no, sweetheart, I am definitely not an antagonist.

Nonetheless, you should practice caution, since the following things could very well be present during the duration of our contract:

  • Implicit violence
  • Disturbing images
  • Strong Language

As much of a gentleman as I am, dealing with pests can always get somewhat tricky. Wouldn't you say?"

✦  ✦  ✦


"Of course, the creation of the contract and my nightmare-hunt service, among other things, wouldn't have been possible without the developer and the team. We should have a drink to celebrate all of their hard work!"

Important for Mac users

"Due to Apple having issues with programs that aren't made by them, the developer needed to include a plugin that allows you to save the game regardless. Because of this, your save files won't be inside the game folder but rather in the Library. Once you save at least once, if you wish to see your save files, go to Library --> Application Support --> Default\The Dream Drinker (the files may be outside of the folder but they'll be right below it so you can go ahead and move them inside).

Don't forget to save, my dear~"

✦  ✦  ✦


"And last but certainly not least, if you enjoy the developer's creations and would like to offer some support, you could always buy her a coffee, sometime. 

Though, personally, I have to say I'm more partial to the drink I'm holding~"

I enjoyed playing your game, it a nice balance of comedy and tension. It reminded me of my own dream related game, "The Heart's Fallacy". Coincidently, I made that for a game jam just like this game.

Thank you so much!! I'm happy you enjoyed it!! 😊

Oh, what a coincidence! A dream related game too! I'll have to check it out sometime! 🌸☺️

"What was that quote from the blue spiky-haired attorney, again?"

This made me laugh more than it should-

I don't know if I'm late to report bugs but oh well-

I encountered this bug at the end of the game, when Hazel woke up, the screen went black and this popped up.

I don't know if this is a problem with the code, or my computer, but i decided to report it nonetheless.

Thank you for reporting it! I wonder what happened 🤔 

Did it appear after your second playthrough?
