A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

~Story~

One day, a young boy wanders into the woods with only the twisted, mangled remnants of dreary branches obscuring the bleak horizon. As the sun starts to set beneath ruby-red clouds, the boy, Noël, happens upon a desolate cross-bridge atop a river of blood. Upon crossing over it, he finds himself standing by a gate wrought from stone.

Confronted by the fantasies his beloved grandmother read to him as a child, the boy finds himself lost in a dark 'Wonderland.' However, all is not that it seems. 

While exploring, Noël must gather the memories of those forsaken souls who roam lest their hearts shatter.

Really neat stuff, the art style and cutscenes were excellent. Very unique visually, for an RPG Maker game. Great job in all departments, neatly done!

Aaaaah thank you so much!! <3 I'm really glad you liked the 'Chapter 0' demo~! \>w</ This was mainly just an art style test so I'm happy it turned out alright. ^_^

Hey~ I wanted to say that Im a fan and I really love the idea and the art you do, its unique and adorable~
But sadly, this time I cant play it. I downloaded it and all, but its telling me its corrupted. I also tried to reinstall it but the same thing.
Its not from the anti-virus because, well, I dont have one. :(

I'd encountered the same problem too :" i really want to play this game XD

Thank you~!! ^_^

Oh, sorry about that!! I received the same question over on Tumblr any someone may found the answer! It turns out you have to rename the folder as 'Traumerei' instead of 'Träumerei'. It's the 'ä' that doesn't seem to read.

ah yess~~~ the problem fixed. thank you (。>﹏<。)(。>﹏<。)

Hey! Just wanted to ask, what should I do at the Scene where I had to cut a dude down with an Axe? It seems that no matter what I do, the only choice I have is to die by picking the Axe up after slashing the dude down.

(Edited 1 time)

Hello! I just tested the scene and that may have happened if you inspected the fountain with the orange water  further after taking paper scrap #5. After you take the paper scrap you're supposed to leave immediately or you'll be stuck in a 'loop'.  Afterwards, the game should progress and allow you to leave. 

Another scenario could be that after picking up the axe there are four options to cut down the 'hanged man'. The fourth is blank and the only one that will allow you to progress. Sorry for the confusion!! ^^;

YES I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS.
I literally laughed out loud at some of your flavor text.

Small nit-picky thing:   I got so lost and so confused by the graveyard map.  It's a very large maze and there's no real "landmarks" and also some of the passability is weird (like Noël can fit behind some gravestones but not others of the exact same size).  Even just tiny things to make it less the same would help...!

Overall though I'm in Love.  Your art has improved so much and your writing is so mysterious and cryptic, I'm (eyes emoji) to learn more about the story.


Hi Meaka! Thank you~!! \>u</ Glad some of the misc. text was funny; I didn't want to make the game too serious.

Yeah, that was intentional. Even if there appeared to be visible passability on some gravestones, if I allowed the player to go through them Noël would end up standing on parts of the gravestones. And I'll try to make mazes have landmarks for future chapters!

Thank you once again!! ^_^ I hope to get the next chapter our relatively soon! :D
