Einsamkeit's actual title screen. Source
Einsamkeit ( "Loneliness" in German) is a future indie game mainly inspired of Yume Nikki by Kirishima Megie (visual artist) and Chaos X (composer), sharing the role of scenarist. Made with RPG Maker VX Ace, this game is the main part of the "The Story of an Einsamkeit" series. It is also known to be the first french Yume Nikki fangame.
The project was announced September 28th, 2015, but the release date is unknown.
Unlike many fangames, Einsamkeit has only one door for the whole Nexus.
You will be able to influence the plot, by the choices you will have to confront as Harold, the main protagonist
The effects in the game aren't obligatory to collect, however, there is a second category of "Abilities".
Einsamkeit, or the series in general, may be christmas-themed with themes of space, gemology, religion and Y2K-era culture.
"Einsamkeit is a story-based RPG about a boy named Harold who just passed his 18th birthday. At the same day, a strange dreamreaper who seems to have known his deceased father tells him that his life as a dreamer will make him better and that he can try to cherish it. He will face by emotional and supernatural crisis about friendship, family, love, a lingering past and the forces of the unknown."
