Parade (パレード) is a Yume Nikki fangame made by GIOGIO (祇園) (Pixiv). This game has stopped its distribution to the public being at version 0.07.


At the beginning of the game you are given the option to play as either Reika (れいか) or Iwakutsuki (いわくつき). Both of them share the Yume Nikki "syndrome" - they either refuse to leave their rooms or are stuck inside of them. Trying to open the door just results in a locked door sound. Therefore, the only thing both of them can do is dream.


Whilst Reika is described as a person with Myopia (nearsightedness), Iwakutsuki is described to be a "Madman" (Un matto). When Iwakutsuki pinches herself to wake up from the dream, she has a tear in her eye.

The reason for this game having two protagonists and the relation between them is revealed later in the game and is highly hinted in the endings.


This is a list of effects is partially based on in-game script and charset images found in the game files, therefore errors may occur.
