Game Premise:
Quaden is a rather shy, young adult living at home with his parents in Zoasis, a peaceful city known for the art of "dream catching" - the process of entering people's dreams to cure them of physical or psychological ailments, while at other times being used as reconnaissance in military operations. He hopes to become a Dream Catcher himself, but this in itself will be no easy task.

Events unfold and what starts out as a rather serene and ordinary quiet life becomes something quite different - a life unexpected with tough decisions to make; decisions that will test Quaden's morality and judgment, and allow him to ultimately grow as a person.

Game Info:
- Interactive Story RPG focusing heavily on storytelling and character development.
- In production since the arrival of Rm2k3 almost a decade ago.
- No level grinding. Characters level up through storyline progression so you can focus on the journey itself rather than on battles.
- Character decisions impact story events and what skills are learned
- Highly customized DBS

To Please or Not to Please...

That is the question.

I have to admit that for the longest time I've felt somewhat of a lack of motivation regarding this project on account on the lack of feedback I have received. Is it worth continue if there is no captive audience? How do I know what they want if I don't hear from them? Is this silence something positive or negative? Those were some of the thoughts plaguing my mind, but then I realized something, who cares?

I'm not making this game for praise or glory, I'm making something that I can be proud of, something to stand behind and say, 'yes, after all the years of hard work, I did it!'

So I'm a little ashamed it took me this long to figure this out for my own, but now that I have this realization I will forge full speed ahead! Expect a few more blogs from me from this point onwards on my design process and decisions. I want to document this new spiritual step on my journey.

You get stuck on the chair in the Relatives home after you wake up.

edit: I like the pose Bleya is in when she appears on the roof with the knight. tee hee.


Strange, for a second there, I seemed to be stuck near the place where you have to go in Castle, but I can't move the other way. Some rm2k3 move bug, but it's over now.

I also find it strange for music to play in towns, even if there's nothing bad happening, I mean, now, it's a good time seeing as spoiler people being kidnapped, slaves, etc spoiler end.

I'll look into the getting stuck on the chair. Don't recall it happening during testing but I'll check it out today when I get home from work.

Don't really understand why you find it strange for music to play in towns. Do you prefer no music at all? Sorry I'm a little confused by your last statement. Thanks for your thoughts thus far! :)
Can you elaborate on getting stuck on a chair? I don't recall Quaden even going to sleep or waking up in his grandparents' home so I'm a little confused now.

No I mean, the music sounds strange, whether it fits or not, I guess I hoping for some happy tunes, it has nothing do with having music in towns or any area of the game.

Okay the battle field was a bit of confusing to figure out but I got it right.
I may have found a big glitch! I found the Ultamite Water Sword and equiped it on Quaden. It rose his attack power very high and I'm killing stuff with one hit. I noticed it said the weapon wasn't real . . . but it's letting me use it!

Yes! That's a problem! As you receive it in a dream you're not supposed to still be able to use it in real life.. HAHAHA. Silly me... will make sure to fix it and update the file.
It was funny though to get a weapon of that much power and it turns out to be fake!

There's a bug with the kid in the mine there after you get his cat, I had to go get him twice or properly even more, if I found what happen. Well it's good that I got all musicians.


Edit: I'm done. lol
damn fairies
Can you explain what you mean benos? What do you mean about getting him twice?

The event repeated.
Ok, thanks benos. I looked into it and I think I fixed it for v1.3.

you do realize that Dream Catcher is a Steven King novel?

Yes. But my game has nothing in common with it other than the title. There are no aliens in my project.
Didn't I write some themes for this game YEARS ago? I was probably 14-15. Hopefully you didn't use them :).

Hahahaha Erave, you certainly did and I'm still using them! They're actually pretty good my friend. :)

How's this coming along anyway?
Still working on it slowly but surely.
While this looks great visually, I can't seem to start it. Says RTP isn't present when I have it installed. I trieed some other stuff but no luck, I am surprised no one else had this problem in the comments.
Go to the folder where the game is kept and look for the file called game.ini
Open that with notepad, then at the bottom put in this line:
FullPackageFlag=1

Save the file and see if that works. It might then ask for Harmony.dll or say it's missing files. Download this file and unzip it. The folders and dll inside need to go in the folder where the game.exe is located. It should ask if you want to merge the folders already existing, which is fine, but after that it might ask to ignore, copy or replace files that there are duplicates of within those folders. Choose ignore all in that case.

If after that there's some weird font issues, download this font and install it on your computer. It should work a peach.


Hope this helps! It can usually be used for any game marked Tsukuru 2003 in the engine section if they're not playing.

Hi Raiem ❤

Try this download link: FIXED Dream Catcher - Emergence (V1.3).rar this contains the fixes Liberty suggested above. I gave it a quick run through on my desktop PC just to see if it works and it seems to be running okay now - Eitherway, let us know if this worked!

Years ago, I worked with Mateui to finish 12 battle animations he asked to have completed for the game, I was only able to finish 3 of them before real life stuff got in the way - I always felt bad I wasn't able to complete all of them. :(
