I had a weird dream recently. I was in a 2D RPG. Going through the motions as a character fighting stuff, and then at some point I became aware of the fact that it's an RPG. So then the whole RPG part of the experience sort of detaches itself and continues under its own steam free from any influence from me. Meanwhile I end up drifting around as a sort of impartial observer taking stock of events for a bit. It's not too long before I notice that the world itself is in 3D at which point the Orthographic projection slowly starts distorting into perspective revealling quite a spiffy little 3D world. ( although the characters are all 2D sprites still). So I spend the rest of the dream floating around taking note of the geometry of the RPG level/world and getting level layout/prop ideas. The whole thing was strangely reminicent of Flatland by Edwin Abbott. I had another dream set in the 1992 Dune video game world a few weeks earlier that would probably have been a more interesting tale to recount, but the details of what transpired in that one are lost to me now, and sadly I didn't know this thread existed when it was fresh in my mind.
