OverviewEdit

The Looking Glass is a Yume Nikki fangame by Bleet/blt (who also made Fleshchild, the huntress of the hollow and Jasei no In:The Serpent's Lust). It stars a girl named Irene as she explores the newly-opened world behind her mirror.

Like Me and Hell Diary, The Looking Glass features spoken dialogue and flavortext when interacting with objects and characters. The game also features light adventure elements, such as simple puzzles and increased interactivity in the normal world. Unlike most protagonists Irene is also capable of leaving her room, and begins the game in her classroom at her school.

According to the Bleet's blog, a remake of this game is currently in progress. In the remake all of the characters will have new talking and regular sprites. Faceless will be named James Falt and his eyes will be hazel (source).

Gameplay MechanicsEdit

In The Looking Glass, players follow the traditional Yume Nikki fangame exploration scheme. However, in some parts of the game, Irene will make quips when examining items, or cutscenes will play out where the characters are speaking. During these sections, their portraits appear, and they have a variety of expressions. There are no endings in the game yet.

There is a small amount of adventure gameplay in The Looking Glass, in the form of effects required to solve minor problems or puzzles.
