For the last six months, Cero, a painter, had suffered terrible insomnia. Six months ago, he had painted a beautiful portrait of someone he had met in his dream. This person was his muse, inspiring him to paint like he had never painted before. After he completed his painting, he found himself unable to sleep, even though he was desperate to meet his dream muse again. One day, during a freak cooking accident, Cero burned his painting. It was the only thing that burned inside Cero's house. After this incident, Cero had forgotten what his muse looked like and lost his passion for painting.

Cero became a depressed insomniac after this incident. He was sure his insomnia and depression were incurable. One day, walking down Starry Beach Boardwalk, Cero met Madame Reverie, a flashy gypsy in a purple robe.

"You have suffered, my child," she said with a raspy voice. She flared her nostrils and widened her cerulean eyes. "I have a cure for you." She snapped her fingers and like magic, a vile of liquid appeared on her wrinkly palm.

"Take this and you will sleep well. Sleep very well." Madame Reverie smiled like Cheshire Cat and cackled like a witch. When Cero turned around, he found himself standing before an empty stand. The gypsy had disappeared.

"Woah." Sleep-deprived, Cero gave this incident no other thought and walked away to enjoy the sound of waves. In the past, he had accidentally eaten a strange mushroom, and it made him hallucinate. He assumed he had imagined meeting the gypsy, even though the vile of liquid was very real.

That night, Cero felt brave. He drank the tonic, a cherry-tasting liquid, in one gulp. Within seconds, he passed out on his kitchen floor, convulsing.

When he woke up, he found himself engulfed in darkness. He was sure he was no longer in his own apartment. Head spinning, he stumbled around and whispered, "Where am I?"

His voice echoed. Before his eyes, the room brightened. He studied his strange surroundings, surprised to see he wasn't in a room, but in the middle of a strange, new world.

"Welcome to the Dream World," a melodious, female voice sang in his head. The voice sounded like it belonged to the gypsy he had met earlier, only prettier.

"You are now dreaming. You have thirty dream cycles from now on. Soon, you will find doors where you can enter different Dream Realms. Within these Realms, are Dream Souls. One of these Souls can become your Soulmate. Your Soulmate can help you leave the Dream World. If you fail in finding a Soulmate, you shall become a Dream Soul as well, forever to roam lost in this World.

Cero shook his head. "What a dream," he said. As he recalled, never in his life had he been able to remember his dreams. He looked around him, mesmerized by the beauty of his surroundings. A billion stars danced in the dark blue skies. Walking through the Dream City, Cero encountered nary a soul. Though the City was beautiful, it felt cold and lonely. The beauty of the place felt too eerie. "Perhaps I can get used to a place like this," Cero muttered.

He thought otherwise a few minutes later. He decided this dream was really a nightmare. Walking through the empty city, Cero found himself standing in front of the same building over and over again, even though he was sure he had walked down at least five different blocks. The building was made of prism glass. Starlight bounced off the dark glass as shimmering rainbow rays.

Cero decided to enter the building. The moment he walked through the front door, he felt himself pulled into the building. The door behind him flashed before melting away into nothing.

He walked to the middle of the building's lobby. Before him, were six doors and a single vial of potion atop a cedar stand…

Each door was made of wood that had a golden sheen. Carved on the wooden doors were glowing flowers. Peonies, roses… Cero looked around the room some more before he decided to enter one of the doors. He knocked on a door and pushed it open.

Fan review by Zusa (one of the long-time moderators of the Nummyz forums)

First and foremost I'd love to build a statue of you, Mayuiki, and create a religion where you are worshiped for creating a save button! This is more than just handy and convenient, it's a life saver! Especially if you reach a point in the game where, say you just want to work on your currency, save, then focus on a character, end the game, and load from a previous session with all the money you earned.

Moving on, I can't help but shake a sort of Alice in Wonderland feeling when I played this game. Cero falling into a deep sleep and "waking up" in a strange new world, but with doors to different realms of the Dream World. The music was very fitting, and in my opinion worked out in a continuous loop throughout the whole game versus trying to come up with a new theme for each character. In a way it's relaxing and I could probably drift off to sleep to it if I tried.

As for the game play I liked how it was straight forward and not as complicated as some dating sims can be. What really caught my eye was the date. Some of the dating sims I've played only allow you to talk once, give a gift once, do some other action (if available) and then kiss. You created it so that if the player wanted the characters to kiss, they had to give a valuable gift (not some cheap thing like the gems), talk to them, buy them a drink (the right drink too) and THEN they could do the kiss. I also liked how if things were "unsuccessful" on the date, such as no talking, no gift giving, and not buying the right drink, the date would be upset. Very nice! Again, other dating sims I've played the character will usually say "Thanks for taking me out" blah blah blah, or they say nothing at all.

NOW! Let's talk about art! (Yeah I know long review on the game right? Well I'm not one to give minimum feedback! XD) I knew instantly when the game started up you had done the art work and was very impressed by the color schemes and character designs you had created for each character. I think it fits them all well, as well as their design and personalities, Xam is a narcissist/superficial, Angel likes to seek pity - in my opinion - Rylee is bubbly, and Riri is cold at first. These are fantastic character designs and each character is easily distinguished because of their personalities, so it's nothing like having four characters saying similar things all the time when you have Cero talk to them. On a side note; I also liked how the expressions changed from when they were happy, pleased, angry and disappointed. Again, nice job!

All in all, it's nice to see that with each new dating sim Nummyz cranks out, the quality of the story, art and over all work improve instead of taking a nose dive.

Keep up the good work!

Kyaaaaa....>A< Luv this game.Muahahahaha Finally Got Zam Best Ending.Okay for people who want zam best ending try this.(give present out in order checkered vest,black vest,glasses,neck tie,necklace.yellow ball or candy thing..... need over 500exp and at least 2 successful date)I DONT KNOW WHETHER IT WILL WORK FOR U BUT IT WORK FOR ME SO I THOUGHT I SHARED IT WITH YAOI LOVER LIKE ME....YAOI FOREVER!!!

You give your person 5 presents they like, the orbs do NOT count.
Go on 2 successful dates
And get 500+ exp.

C: And I like Angel the most. <33 BEST DATING SIM EVARRR. :3

Yay! Me and Riri are both free! :D
Very cute game!

Basically what you wanna do is remember all the things they like and then buy them up. When you get enough EXP to date, then you just give them one item, buy them the juice they like (Angel likes blue juice) and then go to the beach or wherever. It was fairly simple to get over 1000 EXP by doing this. :3

I love this game! I really liked the girl Rylee. I made out with a girl named Rylee. I also loved a girl named Rylee. She is cute.

This is what I did with each person to get the best ending:
Basically, I didn't allow myself to make mistakes with talking with them. Every time I did, I would start over. I would save, though, right before starting another day of talking with them. When I finished with all of their dialogue, I would then continue to do the other required things. Then next thing to do would be to play the "Luck" game, or go and collect mushrooms. I first go and collect mushrooms to sell, and then go and play the "Luck" game.. Once you have about one-hundred and fifty dollars plus, go ahead and go to the shop. Each person has five different favorite things. Angel likes the flower head piece, the hear pin, the top hat, the black headband, and the black bag. Xam likes the glasses, black vest, checkered vest, red tie, and red necklace. Rylee likes the wings, winged shoes, winged... uh... whatever it is. It's the first thing on the second page. She also likes the winged earphones and the blue dress. Riri likes the pink dress, pink bow, white bag, crown, and heart eyepatch. Now, this is the order I did things. I first went on the two dates with each person. On each date, talk to them until their dialogue starts to repeat, give them a gift, and buy them their favorite drink which is twenty dollars. Angel likes blue, Xam like orange, Rylee likes pink, and Riri like turquoise. Once you have done those things, go to the beach with them. Remember to go on two dates with each person. Now, since you have already given the person two gifts from going on the dates with them, you must give them the three remainding gifts. Once done with that, you can proceed to skip the remainding days until day thirty, which is when you'll be asked to choose a door. Choose the door of the person you had been working on, and bam! You'll get the best ending! If you have any questions, please reply to this comment. Enjoy!

thank you so much for your help! I finally got a perfect ending!

This game has 11 endings.
2 bad endings = 1. do nothing until the end -> result : you sleep eternally || 2. talk & give gifts, but don't date -> result : you are a new realm guards, your flower is white colored
4 natural endings = the painting-endings
4 best endings = talk, give gifts, & date as much as you can -> you & your soulmate will come out from the dreams
1 special endings = I DON'T KNOW *sob* I can't get this one

I got the best ending with Xam!

Wow this is such a great game! For the best ending, you need to talk to them until they actually have nothing left to say and it doesn't take HP away, as well as go on 2 dates and you buy all their wanted gifts at least once. You'll know if you have gotten the best ending if their door disappears.
