- Official trailer for Sebastian:The Slumberland Odyssey
Sebastian: The Slumberland Odyssey is the first “Sci-Fan” tale to take the viewer on a mind-bending journey through worlds that have seldom being intertwined before. It’s a classic coming of age legend that takes place in two worlds. One is the future where thanks to an incredibly advanced A.I., humanity has been able to overcome war and poverty. Disease is now a choice. At last mankind has been united under a mission of collective prosperity, with one small price to pay: The loss of individuality. In order for humankind to unite, people have forgone their ability to dream and their desire to be different. With just cause, since unauthorized dreaming is now punishable by death.
However there is another world beyond the reach of the A.I. : The Dreamverse. Or as it is known in legend, Slumberland. It is known as a realm made up of the entire collection of human dreams and desires. It is a vortex of chaos, fun and adventure where the remaining renegades and thought-provocateurs escape to in the middle of the night. Slumberland is a place of wonder where nothing is what it seems and the last remains of human emotion remain pure and powerful.
