Zach, a chronic underachiever who's been coasting through life without a purpose, just found a curious ecchi game called re:Dreamer, after idly wasting his time playing various mobile games as a broke freshman in college. This incredible phone app has world-bending powers, and he even accidentally turned himself into a girl! Now he's forced to collect points in a competitive sex tournament to rank up, and unless he wins, he'll never be able to go back to his old life!
Play as Zach as he finds his way through this predatory game, placing his full faith into one accomplice he's allowed to invite. Each choice you make will change Zach's personality, affecting his thoughts and game scenes. Will he be able to get enough sex points to win the game, without sacrificing too much of his masculinity and pride? Or will he end up in an irreversible situation in one of many bad ends?

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 tasts 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.

Additionally, there are plans for future content dealing with (including, but not limited to):
So boring, just wanted it to end. So much talking, so few choices. Just wanted to fast forward the game. But it didn't feel like a game, because of how few choices there were. It got to the point where I would click next ten times, then have to take a break, It was that boring. Not sure how long I tested the game out, before I quit, but it felt like hours. Also the white tezt on a white background made it impossible to read. Having the player character be naked makes more sense than having them wear a skirt in the avatar, especially with how the text describes the player character as having their pants rip. Not sure door closets have locks on them, but whatever. A player character with autogynephilia was interesting though.
For the longest time I thought the main character always going into scientific rants and getting lost in his own mind was very annoying. I guess it was just because he was frusteratingly smart. But then I realized that main character reminds me a lot of myself in many ways. I overthing things, I don't memorize all this stuff but I am pretty good at logical thinking and I do get carried away like this too. lol (also other things that make me relate to him besides feeling weak as a male)
So now I just laugh when he get's carried away with his scientific algorithms and mathematics. But now there's a new problem. HE DOESN'T LIKE DOGS. I don't get it. How can he not like dogs? That's pretty racist to stereotype all dogs to be evil. ;-;
I love cats and dogs and hate when someone says one is better than other.
Oh yeah I forgot this is a review. Anyway, this game has a long way to go and sometimes the monologue/dialog get's drawn out to an unreasonable length. That's my only complaint though since this game achieves what few other people have done (with the only ones that also have no longer update their game ***Student Transfer and other one I forgot the name of***)
I hope this game get's finished and I definitely want to follow it the whole way.
This game has really improved since I last played it. I am really enjoying Keisuke's route. I hope to see more development there. However, I do want to point out that I feel that the game has an issue setting the tone. At some points the main character is completely hating being turned into a girl, while in the next scene he is loving life as a girl. It just feels like two different people wrote these scenes and they don't read well. There is also the sharp contrast of lighthearted anime comedy in one scene vs deep psychological contemplation in the next scene. Again it just does not flow well. I still think this is a great game that is one of the best on this site and I recommed that all should try it out.
While re:Dreamer is still early along in its development, the project is flushed with potential and looks to be shaping up into something amazing. It can be funny, it can be heartfelt, it can be methodical, it can be existential, it hits pretty much every note I want to see not only as a story, but as a TG story.
One of my favourite projects on here. The characterisation and exploration into the consequences of gender transformation are almost unmatched, moving at times. I'm not particularly one to care about having choice in my visual novels but that's definitely a weak point right now, the fleshed out paths are few and far between but what is there is great, eagerly awaiting future updates!
