Kudaranu Mousou No Title Screen
Kudaranu Mousou No (くだらぬ妄想の, Delusions of Our Dreams/Ridiculous Dream) is a discontinued Yume Nikki fangame featuring two protagonists named Kazaguruma (かざぐるま) (lit. pinwheel) and Jose (ホセ) . Though it seems widely referenced in the Japanese Yume Nikki fangame community, little is known about the game among Western gamers, as the unfinished version was taken out of public circulation by its author five years ago, and was, until recent events, unobtainable.
What sets Delusions apart from other fangames is the limiting concept of consecutive effects -- instead of exploring the wide dreamworld sandbox, the player is necessitated to collect effects and enter worlds in a certain order, and only once this task has been completed can they receive one of the three endings.
When playing as Kazaguruma, your starting location in real life is a hospital room. Her sister is in the room, and will make a noise when interacted with. Attempting to leave the room without any of the ending conditions will result in the locked door sound.
When playing as Jose, your starting location is your bedroom. You are able to leave into the hall, but trying to head outside of the hall will result in Jose walking back. Aside from your neighboring bedroom, all doors are locked. To the left of Jose's room is his sister's room, which looks near identical to Jose's.
