Dreamscaper's title screen
Dreamscaper is a Yume Nikki fangame starring Natalie, a young girl who locked herself in her room.
Unlike eastern fangames, Dreamscaper, however, will use, at most, only American references and styles. (For example, all characters have English/American names, save more a select few, whom have gibberish names). (Taken from Dreamscaper's Website)
Dreamscaper plays like most fangames, collecting effects and exploration. Natalie wakes up from the Shift key, and you save at the computer. Certain things may happen in the real world after waking up, including a few random events.
"Dreamscaper is about this one girl who, soon after locking herself away from society (no rumor's been proven, so no one really knows how/why), starts to have nightmares. Not at all "OMGSCARY" in Yume Nikki, (however there will be moments of trippyness) but simple life references presented with hidden meanings. Eventually Natalie, your protagonist, becomes an avid lucid dreamer, and learns that the only way to solve the puzzles of her dreams/nightmares is to collect the hidden effects strewn all around her inner psych. These effects are said to help her understand what her dreams are saying." (Taken from Dreamscaper's Website)
According to the Changelog file in ver.0.03, there are currently 15 effects to find in the game.
These are Natalie's alternative clothes she can wear either in her dreams only or both when awake and when asleep.

- Sometimes after you continue your game, the saving music will still be playing. Simply fake-save or dream to turn it off.
- When you wake up, your effect is automatically unequipped, although you may still have the "effect" running, as well as the faceset. Go back to sleep, and unequip it, then wake up again.
- Fireflies effect only works in an already dark room.
- Dog effect can only work in one place, and probably will only work if you have it on when you go into that area. You'll know when it works.
