Dream RPG's Title screen
Dream RPG is a unique Yume Nikki Fangame released by SCity Dreamer. The game contains dialogue and RPG-style battles and is still early in development. The game is divided into routes accessed through the Nexus that branch out into paths to Nightmares, the boss battles for the game.
The protagonist has "Dreamer" as a tentative name and identifies as nonbinary. They refuse to leave their room, insisting on dreaming and writing at their desk, the later of which saves the game.
The dream world seems to be a mish-mash of stories, the sources of which can be found in the Dream Apartment that appear after obtaining an Effect or defeating a Nightmare.
Version 0.00 currently lacks an ending.
The game's Effects are used as equippable items that raise or lower stats as well as changing the main character's appearance. The Effects available in the 0.00 version are:
- Plant: The first effect that can be acquired. It is mandatory to pick up as it's given by the Balcony Flower, who blocks the way to the Nexus proper. The Effect causes a flower to sprout out of the Dreamer's eye and its skills are beneficial. The Effect is offered at the beginning of the game to provide the player with a healing option outside of purchasing Fatigues.
- Computer: Found in the Red Computer World. Dreamer's appearance changes to that of a TRON-like outfit. The Effect comes with a high power attack and a skill that heals MP, but it also cuts down on Maximum HP. The Effect is given by finding a file in the Red Computer World. The player will immediately be confronted by a gang of enemies once the effect is found, but can avoid the battle by waking up.
- Hero: An Effect found in the house in the RPG Maker VX Ace World, given by Ralph, the default character of RPG Maker VX. The Effect raises defense and lowers offense. Currently lacks a facesprite.
Dreamer also comes with Dreamer as a separate skill class. As of version 0, the only skill is the one that allows the player to wake up (only usable outside of battle), though a Scan move is currently slated.
