Blank Dream

Blank Dream is a freeware horror-exploration game by Kanawo (Teriyaki Tomato) made in RPG Maker VX Ace.

Wishing that she had never even existed, Mishiro Usui threw herself into the lake.
When she came to, she was in the Mirror World, a place neither heaven nor hell.
There, her reflection instructed her: "Find the mirrors in this world, and break them."

Troubleshooting

Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.
If you don't do so, any saves made will be lost the next time you run the game.


If you extracted the ZIP but save data is still being erased, try running the game as an administrator.
Without admin privileges, the game may not have permission to create save files.


"RPG Maker VX Ace RTP is not installed" means you need the RPG Maker VX Ace RTP.
This is distinct from the VX RTP which other games may require. The download link is up above.


If the font is incorrect and squares appear in messages, install the Cinecaption font in the Fonts folder.
