A downloadable game for Windows

Moonlit Lobby is a Yume Nikki fangame I did in one month for the 2017 Dream Diary Jam. 

You play as a cat named Harley who's fleeing from the rain and maybe more. Tell stories to earn your stay for the night!

This version is a demo. There are 2 posters (doors) to explore, 3 roles (effects) to find, and 7 story fragments to collect. Roles change the way NPCs and items react to you, so use them to progress. If you max out a story's fragments, you have finished the story. I plan to add more in future updates. I hope you enjoy what the demo has to offer so far!


  • old-timey black-and-white limited palette!
  • jumping!
  • humans-- Wait, humans? There are humans in this game?!


  • don't worry about chasers. There aren't any... in the demo that is
  • jumping and screen shaking is light but may cause motion sickness (like I got when playtesting with Harley's speed on max)
  • made in RPG Maker 2003. All art in the game is done by me. Music is by Kevin MacLeod and some SFX are from FreeSound. There's a credits list in the game's READ ME file with song titles and SFX owners.

I can't wait for new updates! You really did a greay job on this game.

Great game, art is amazing. Really used the Yume Nikki concept in a new and creative way. The mix between exploration and story is great. Few bugs with the speed but still enjoyable. Would really love a full release. This game needs more attention.

Yo! This is super adorable and creative! I love the new twist on the classic Yume Nikki elements, this is super great. Can't wait for the full thing!
