re: Dreamer is an adult gender bender visual novel about an impossible phone game that turns its user Zach into a girl before they even start the tutorial. With an impish and unreliable in-game A.I. as their only lead on how to change back, can Zach follow the rules of this insanely predatory game to survive, or will they lose everything that made them a man in the process?​

0.5.4 (12/19/2020):
  • Britney's old sprites are GONE; taking their place are Myumi's new Britney.
  • New Britney writing after the "Try to tell her the details over text." menu choice.
  • A big slew of Britney edits all around.
  • Redid the way layeredimage sprites store character outfits since it was a bad idea to let it reset every scene. My playtesting and lint checking shows that I got everything, but if I didn't, please let me know!
  • Made a fancy new lex parser for standardized cps speeds independent of text tags.
  • Standardized text sizes (somewhat).
  • Redid the waifu2x 'layeredimage' scaling using 'waifu2x-caffee with upresnet10' as it gives more accurate colors than 'waifu2x-ncnn-vulcan with upconv_7' (likely due to no longer embedding an ICC profile into the new .PNG).
  • Removed every last "show ryouichi" call to increase performance.
  • Caught that I had accidentally scaled the shower hcg to 2K instead of 1080p (yay me for actually playtesting).
  • Some very unfinished Ren'Py screens (gallery, sprite viewer, music room) have been commented out.
0.5.3 (12/05/2020):
  • Edits to the Ryouichi confrontation to show off Zach as more of a scared opportunist getting revenge than a master manipulator. Zach's a lot shrewder than one might expect an autist of his caliber to be, but he's not able to pull off a mind game on that level.
  • Ryouichi's sprite has been removed to prevent a potential legal issue from arising because unbeknownst to me until 2 weeks ago, the visual novel source of Ryouichi's placeholder sprites received a commercial English release literally days after Ryouichi's sprites were ripped for use in this game.
  • Added a segment to Keisuke Day 2's morning meeting between Zach, Keisuke, and Ai based on whether or not Zach had "therapy" with Ai on Day 1, and if so, what he answered. The scene has other edits elsewhere.
  • There's now a proper branch between Keisuke Day 3 Party and Keisuke Day 4 morning. The gap in story is still there, but at least you don't have to access the jump menu to get to Day 4, and there's a brief summary of the unwritten events that happened later that night.
  • The content jump menu has been reworked for clarity and more options.
  • Ai has been rebuilt from scratch with proper layered source files direct from her artist. The sprites had previously been delivered as .PNGs which required some rather imperfect Photoshop skills from myself to create the individual facial expression components, the flaws of which became overwhelmingly apparent after the game window size increase. These new parts are derived from the raw independent layers and look much cleaner.
  • The Ai, Keisuke, shower sex HCG, and Zoey 'layeredimage' files have been rebuilt with downscaling via the waifu2x-ncnn-vulcan engine on the upconv_7 model. I had previously assumed that Lanzcos resampling algorithm would be sufficient for downscaling our very large source files to the size required by the game's 1920x1080 window, but applying that method to Ai's rebuilt 'layeredimage' files revealed noticeable anti-aliasing issues between her smaller facial components (such as her eyebrows) and the transparent pixels of the alpha channel that was not present with downscaled fully assembled sprites. Essentially, the pixels on these transparent edges were much sharper than they should have been when the image layers were assembled as a displayable within Ren'Py, waifu2x with a -1 denoise level produces more accurate scaling. But don't tell Ai that, or she'll try to take credit for an AI scaling engine producing better results.
  • Zoey's placeholder sprites have been rescaled to the projected size of TiltSHIFT's Zoey sprites. Yes, she's really that short (160cm/5'3") compared to Keisuke (182cm/6'0"). But highlighting the height difference between her and Keisuke isn't the reason for this adjustment; no, she has been resized in order to pair better with the size of Myumi's Britney sprites. After some prodding, he has projected a date between December 4th and December 6th to complete the first pose of Britney's sprites to the point that they can be used in-game (that means giving her a full set of expressions, her facial emotes, the casual and nude outfits, both her hairstyles, and her glasses). I know all you yuri fans out there have been lamenting Britney's neglect for over 10 months, but she's finally going to get new story content next update!

0.5.2 (11/20/2020):
  • The continuation of Zoey's first day of classes on the 5th day (Monday) of Keisuke's route.
  • A few surprises. :^)

0.5.1 (11/07/2020):
  • New Keiuske Day 4 content with Zoey going to her first day of classes.
  • Zoey's sprites have been redone from being in Student Transfer's custom method to Ren'Py's propietary 'layeredimage' method.
  • Bug fixes, particularly for the Android version.

0.5.0 (10/23/2020):
  • The game switches over from a 1280x720 resolution to a new 1920x1080 one, meaning everything just looks better.
  • Despite the larger files, the overall size of the game has decreased by around 30% due to managing our assets in a better manner.

0.4.4 (10/12/2020):
  • re: Dreamer's first birthday!
  • A much better route select menu built into the main screen with fancy T.E.A.C.H. sliders.
  • The highly-requested Android version has arrived! Each release from now on will feature an Android build.
  • From now on, the route flowchart will be bundled with each release as a .png, and the route flowchart has been reworked for ease of use.
  • Keisuke Day 3 morning is finished.

0.4.3 (09/25/2020)]:
  • The start of Keisuke Day 4 morning, where Zach goes to his first classes as a girl.
  • The conclusion of the baths sex scene.
  • Heavy edits to the second half of the Keisuke Day 2 shopping mall.
  • A simplification of T.E.A.C.H.

0.4.2 (09/11/2020):
  • Continues the morning-after scene with Zoey and Keisuke, and introduces a new scene were Keisuke and Ai meet for the first time.

0.4.1 (08/28/2020):
  • A morning-after scene with Zach and Keisuke.
  • Fixes for Britney's animations.
  • Polish to the shower sex scenes.

0.4.0 (08/15/2020):
  • Ai finally has sprites, and Keisuke has new sprites!
  • The continuation of the shower sex scene with Keisuke (with new HCG).

0.3.9 (08/01/2020):
  • The first half of the frat house party that Keisuke and Zach visit.

0.3.8 (07/03/2020):
  • Quests are no longer required daily events. Instead, certain mandatory quests with a limited window will appear from time to time, requiring Zach's prompt action to complete.
  • Losing the game no longer results in a player's memory loss about re: Dreamer. Now, only the discovery of an unauthorized player results in memory wiping.
  • Zach's "AGP Admission" is no longer a mandatory event in the "Ai Therapy" scene. Now, players can choose Zach's response to Ai, all of which are affected by T.E.A.C.H. and previous choices.
  • Spectators are now nigh-omnipresent in Status and will be tracking Zach's activities much more closely than before.
  • Sections have been "trimmed of their fat," with many long-winded conversations either locked behind high Autism or removed altogether (with the goal being to start the game proper in less time).

0.3.7 (06/24/2020):
  • Two new HCGs and their sex scenes.

0.3.6 (06/05/2020):
  • New content with a sizable shopping mall outing scene in Keisuke.

0.3.5 (05/22/2020):
  • Giving the game a proper intro (like a real VN).
  • Edits to the introduction transformation scene and solo masturbation scene to make them hotter.
  • Preliminary ways to edit T.E.A.C.H. variables.
  • Linking the stub endings to the main routes.
  • Lots of new backgrounds we have the rights to!

0.3.4 (05/08/2020):
  • The continuation of the large bathroom scene with Keisuke (with our first custom-drawn HCG)!
  • Filling in all the nasty WIP gaps in the story.

0.3.3 (04/24/2020):
  • The continuation of the large bathroom scene with Keisuke.

Relatively sizable swathes of polish all around.

The start of a new large bathroom sex scene with Keisuke that really flexes the strength of the T.E.A.C.H. system introduced in 0.3.0.
Honestly it's a lot. The in-game version postpartum gives the details better than a proper changelog can.
Added a toggle option to avoid automatic text advancement in dramatic scenes.
Britney, in which Zach/Zoey tags in a female friend to help with re. Dreamer's insanity. Steamy Dream, where Zach/Zoey confronts their dream self and learns a lot about attraction.
'audio' channel playback has been cut out when possible in favor of 'sound1' and 'sound2' SFX channels.
Ai no longer has the role of "re: Dreamer tattletale," as the ominous "Server AI" has that job now.
One (and only one) friend can be enlisted as an "accomplice" to help with re: Dreamer.
Clarified a line or two of confusion between Haze and Zach/Zoey.

Developer Notes:
As of 0.4.4, each release's route flowchart is bundled as a .png with the release.
Nigmabox has also provided a helpful player-focused flowchart in her review of 0.3.5 here that should give a general outline for the routes.

Zach, the main character of this story, is a chronic underachiever who has been using his above-average intellect to coast through life with below-average grades. After a gap year taken to find his identity and expand his spiritual horizons that left his broke, he's now a freshman university student in a major he only chose because it's easy and can lead to a steady job right out of school. He spends his idle time searching for new and obscure phone games to play as F2P user on a broke college student lifestyle.

Ai is the unreliable and mischievous A.I. that came with Zach’s copy of re: Dreamer. She seems to treat this all as one big game, though it probably is just that for her. Ai appears to have her head in the gutter 24/7 and seems to take great pleasure in teasing Zach. It remains to be seen if Zach can trust her.

Britney is a dorky young-adult blonde white girl and anime/game/cosplay otaku who is quite attractive but abrasive if you can't keep up with her pace. She and Zach met in high school and bonded over their similar taste in anime and phone gacha. She is also Zach's only female friend.

Keisuke is Zach's childhood friend and neighbor. Despite being opposites, the two have been best friends since they were little kids. He's an athletic prodigy and social butterfly who gets along well with the ladies, despite being a blunt meathead. Though their personalities have diverged since they were kids, they've known each other for a very long time and have a strong bond of trust.
