Someone made a Seinfeld horror game in Dreams, and it's amazing(ly weird)

There's a Seinfeld horror game in Dreams on PS4, and you can go ahead and file this under things eerily similar to a nightmare I had in sixth grade.

In 'Sinfeld Chronicles (opens in new tab)' by mrironmonkey (opens in new tab) (thanks, Dominick Nero (opens in new tab)), you play as Seinfeld's nephew Donathan, whose voice can be heard as an internal monologue as you search for your uncle across different areas. You'll explore an impressively accurate recreation of Jerry Seinfeld's famous New York City apartment, as well as Cosmo Kramer's neighboring apartment and some of the surrounding exterior.

There are easter eggs referencing the 90s sitcom scattered everywhere, like the bright red light from a Kenny Rogers Roasters chicken restaurant beaming into Kramer's apartment, used here to impose a foreboding atmosphere into the scene. Walking into Kramer's bedroom, you'll come face to face with a terrifying doll basking in the blood-red glow, which will kill you if you come too close. Remember, this is a Seinfeld horror game.

The developer behind the project is actually working on an entire "New York themed video game," where the Seinfeld portions seen here will eventually be joined by scenes from Moonstruck, Ghostbusters, and other New York-based TV shows and movies. You can follow the game's development over at RareBirdInteractive (opens in new tab) on YouTube.

The scary Seinfeld game is one more project in a long list of Dreams creations that prove the software's ability to channel creativity into fascinating, and in this case slightly disturbing, creations for the world to indulge in. Other examples include Stardew Valley in Dreams (opens in new tab) and Ghost of Tsushima in Dreams (opens in new tab).

We expect this list to continue expanding, but here are the best Dreams levels (opens in new tab) you can play right now, from a Fallout game to a PT recreation.

After scoring a degree in English from ASU, I worked as a copy editor while freelancing for places like SFX Magazine, Screen Rant, Game Revolution, and MMORPG on the side. Now, as GamesRadar's west coast Staff Writer, I'm responsible for managing the site's western regional executive branch, AKA my apartment, and writing about whatever horror game I'm too afraid to finish.
