:Poena: is a Japanese Yume Nikki Fangame created by Hokotate Makoto (鉾立真虚人) (Twitter) in RPG Maker XP.


:Poena: plays like a traditional Yume Nikki fangame. You play as a boy named Kasetsuki (かせつき) that refuses to leave his room for unknown reasons. You save by sitting at the desk and enter the dream world by sleeping in the bed.

The controls are also pretty standard for a Yume Nikki fangame. You move using the arrow keys, open the menu using X and use effects by pressing Shift. You can interact with the environment with space and equip effects from the menu.

The main objective of the game is to explore the dream world and collect all the effects.


There are ten effects to obtain as of version 0.015.
