Overview

Hallucigenia (ハルキゲニア) is a Japanese fangame by sabamiso, a contributor to Yume 2kki. It stars two young girls named Aya and Aine. The game was developed in RPG Maker 2000.

Gameplay

The game starts from Aya's perspective in an inescapable, mostly barren room. The dream world is accessed through a black book on her bed, her appearance changing outside of reality. After completing certain tasks in Aya's dream world, Aine becomes a playable character. Aine's dream world is very similar to Aya's dream world, but is grayscale due to her colorblindness.

Unlike most fangames, Hallucigenia lacks background music, and has only a handful of sound effects. You can save by pressing the right key and then Z.

Plot

Aya enters her dream world from the black book on her bed. When in the dreamworld you are still Aya, but her appearance changes. Some theorize that this is her desired appearance. In older versions of the game, Aya's effects were referred to as Colors.

Aine enters her dream world by sleeping on the bed. She lost her right arm, and she is also colorblind that she sees things in grayscale, either in reality or the dream world.

Effects

You can perform actions with certain effects by holding the Z key.
