      Secret Consumable: Player must have the Dreamweaver Melee equipped. Walk up to it and hold the melee button down. The character will go into a new animation, discovering the Walker's Dream consumable. From what my wife and I have experienced, you have to be in the blue fog and on the left side of the entity.
