At first, it all started with a dream.
At first, it all started with a dream.
At first, it all started with a dream. A strange, realistic dream that she couldn’t have even imagined the meaning to. Then it turned into déjà vu. When her computer malfunctions in class, she’s greeted with the eerie, familiar feeling of the one from her dream; and that’s when he pursued her.
You play as Camellia, a freshman in college who has been having consecutive prophetical dreams. Fighting deceit, lies, and hidden truths, will you be able to keep the girl from your dreams safe - along with yourself?
Camellia (18, 5'6 [168cm]); The protagonist and a freshman in college. She’s distant and quiet most of the time, but her childhood friend usually pulls her out of her shell when she’s in class, causing her to gain the reputation of “the quiet troublemaker.”
Evan (20, 6'0 [182cm]); A mysterious boy in Camellia’s class, as well as her senior. At first, he wanted nothing to do with anyone in the school, as he seemed to always be off in his own world, but his mysterious façade is only just that; once he learns about Camellia’s ability, his personality and demeanor takes a 180 degree turn.
Carlos (19, 5'10 [179cm]); Camellia’s childhood friend and her senior in college. He’s a troublemaker, always dragging her into his shenanigans even though he knows of her disdain towards it. He sees himself as her guardian angel and gets very protective without noticing it.
Lucas (18, 5'7 [170cm]); A shy, yet very intelligent boy; he’s nervous constantly, as he was previously homeschooled and suddenly thrown into a social college life – he’s just not used to being around so many people. He has very bad luck and can never get a break when it comes to computers, even though he has an obvious passion for them. His family is the adoptive family of Anne.
Adrian (20, 6'1 [183cm]); The library and study assistant. He’s almost never found away from the library, but he does indeed help out whenever he is needed as much as he can, given his ability. He’s a bit airheaded, but he’s a kind person, always giving advice whenever someone is in need.
Anne (10, 4'8 [140cm]); The girl from Camellia’s dreams and the adoptive sister of Lucas. She is depicted as having grown older, but only into her childhood years. Her real name is not Anne, and she isn’t human, despite her appearance.
Halley (20, 5'8 [173cm]); The student body president. Very stubborn and strict, Halley takes pride in his position at the school, as he encourages precision and perfection from the college students. He doesn’t approve of the ideas that Tristan proposes for the cheerleading team, since they’re always dangerous and impractical; safety first.
Tristan (20, 6'3 [190cm]); The co-captain of the cheerleading team at the college. He constantly is begging Lucas and Camellia to join the team as he knows their bodies are more than appropriate for the team, and he wants them to have more school spirit. He and Halley are almost always in bouts of arguments as their club activities clash often.
Gavin (18, 5'9 [179cm]); A slacker, put in forward terms. He prefers lazing about and living in the moment rather than doing schoolwork and putting forth effort; he doesn’t even want to be at the school in the first place, but his wealthy parents wanted him to go so badly they paid for his whole tuition. He doesn’t seem to be taking the situation seriously, though.
Ian (19, 5'8 [171cm]); A freshman in college, but he is constantly playing around with some sort of trinket. His phone, media player, someone’s tablet – anything he can get his hands on to modify, he’s got it all covered… with his additions to it. He has failed one semester of college already, but he’s somehow snuck back into the freshman roster; nobody really knows why he even attends.
Patricia (21, 5'2 [152cm]); The oldest and a junior in college, she’s also a transfer student from Europe (Portugal, to be exact) and is one of Camellia’s closest friends, as well as Carlos' rival. She is energetic, but can get rowdy and rough if it comes to it. She likes to cut her hair more often than you’d expect her to, but she always manages to pull it off somehow.
Kat (19, 5'4 [163cm]); The younger sister of Evan, as well as a freshman in college. She’s polite and straight-forward with her wording, yet treats all of her friends like her children (yes, she’s the mom friend).
Sarah (18, 5'4 [163cm]); A recent graduate of high school and close friend of Camellia. She is technically older by two months (a fact she takes pride in), but was held back a year and ended up graduating late. She’s supportive of her friend’s decisions, but also lets her know when something feels odd or wrong, as her gut feeling is almost always correct.
Seren (17, 5'1 [150cm]); One of Camellia’s friends and currently not occupied with anything but work. He is a genuine mystery, as he appears everywhere at the most random times. However, he spends most of his time with Ian.

Risks and challenges
The obvious challenge is spending more than 3 hours a day working on the game, due to having a full-time job; but, I will try my hardest to dedicate more time and energy towards the production of the game.
As this is the first majorly funded game I've worked on, I want to do my absolute best to provide a quality game that you can enjoy and have fun playing.
For physical rewards, I will send them out in waves - once every week and a half - as it will be just me managing and setting everything up.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
