The Dreaming is a visual novella in which you take the part of Gabrielle, a young psychiatrist during her first weeks at a mental institution. One of her early jobs is to complete the diagnosis of Julius, a young man hospitalized at the clinic with an unusual case of schizophrenia: not only has he vivid hallucinations - the whole world seems like one big hallucination to him. Digging deeper into his mental condition, Gabrielle soon finds out that there is more to Julius than meets the eye... and a few of these things are terrible indeed...

Genre: Psychological thriller
Playtime: ~1 hr
Multiple endings

Currently, I've only managed to get the first five endings out of six, but I think I'm getting really close to the sixth ending (also the True Ending, although that doesn't mean it's going to be a happy ending. Just an ending where you sort of learn everything I guess, before you fade into darkness.)

EDIT: Oh, I just succeeded in getting Ending 6. So if anyone needs help with it, you can ask me.

Have fun, and hope you like it! Credits completely go to Taleweaver.

EDIT: Here are some very minor hints about how to achieve each ending. Minor spoilers to be expected:

Ending 1: Occurs when you have absolutely no will to cure Julius. It happens if you actually give in to influence and start to despise Julius. This is the only ending where the game ends without anything... uh... abnormal going on.

Ending 2: Occurs when Julius has lost his "will to be cured". Get it? Geeetttt itttt? *ahaha.wav* ... Just kidding, only people who've gotten Ending 6 will get this joke -which is not really a joke-. Anyway, you shouldn't TRY getting this ending, since it's more of an ending that comes to you if you do something terribly wrong.

Ending 3: It occurs when you are close, but not close enough... This also shouldn't be an ending you TRY getting, just something that comes to you if you lose your will to live (Or Julius succumbs to his guilt and loses his will to be cured... Yet another Ending 6 inside joke. ).

Ending 4: This occurs if YOU ARE INCOMPETENT! *ahaha.wav* ... Just kidding. If it happens, you're quite close to Ending 6, but you failed to find what is most important.

Ending 5: This occurs if you start treating Julius more like a close friend than a patient. You do not succeed in treating Julius, but at least he's happy.

Ending 6: ???

Okay, I just managed to download it, but when I want to copy the folder that's in the WinZIP document, the folder isn't there.

And no, I already searched it. Or maybe I'm going blind.

You just have to try extracting it, I believe. Then run the application inside it.

Most importantly, do not forget that "Julius is probably fully responsible for all that has happened to him".

It worked with EXTRACT, though, many times with other games/programs/things I tried to just copy them. Dunno what happened with this one. ^^;

Good luck with it. Well, it appears you got Ending 3 first. Tell me when you get other endings, ok?

A quote by the original creator might solve your problem. SPOILERS AHEAD FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT YET REACHED ENDING 3.

Quote:
Heh. The White Woman part. Yup, I thought that this would be a part people found difficult. Even though the difficulty of surviving the encounter changes depending on what you did before.

First of all, if you died a lot during the White Woman part, you're probably on a good way to Ending 6. Her conversation includes ONE decision point that is absolutely essential for Ending 6, and that decision point is a pretty obvious one as it sticks out like the proverbial sore thumb in comparison to the two other options. Unfortunately, that decision will ALSO put you one step closer to a Game Over - so you have to "steer" into another direction during a few of her other conversation options. It is possible to get it "wrong" without immediately dying... wrong being missing the right choice for Ending 6. However, consciously avoiding that choice can make achieving Ending 5 easier.

If you want Ending 6, remember that you need to find out the truth behind Julius's hallucinations, and you won't get it without as much "outside help" as possible. Even if that help is... unpleasant. And you might want to draw your own conclusions from what you're hearing... and stand by them.


Good luck!

So far I have only gotten ending 2 because I had to go to sleep. I have to say I was expecting this to be bad, but the creator did good research and things are similar to how they would be. So far it is also creepy, but I am really enjoying this game. Good job

Ah, there are actually many, many, many ways to get ending 2. May I ask which way you got it? Also put it in white text as it's a spoiler.

One way to get Ending 2 is to lose Julius' trust. Another way is to not care about how dangerous Julius actually is and even bringing other people to him. Yet another is to not know when to run and when to face bravely to an obstacle.

I have gotten it twice and neither were actually him they were... other things lol. I also have gotten number 4 now but its annoying me. I saved it a ways back and I can change my options from like 6 times and they still give me the same endings no matter what I choose

edit: I reread what you wrote and I think before each number 2 ending I had his ex come so maybe that was it?

No, you know that monster that kills Gabrielle? It is representative of something within Julius. Think about it.

Okay, from the looks of it, I just got a little story from. . . Julius' life. I just supposse that happened. So, don't take it serious.

HIGHLIGHT [SPOILER! BETTER READ IT AFTER YOUR FIRST PLAYTHROUGH]:

After his vacantion in Hawaii, Julius Smith decided to go back to his home, work, and friends [if any LOL ]. But, when he entered his office there was an strange old man dresses with rags. . . his desk tainted with some beer he was drinking.

He toke the man by his collar, yanking him out of his office. On the hallway all the people was looking at him like he was crazy. They couldn't see him. Julius was too angry. . . and the man slipped form his grip, falling on the stairs.

The sound of his neck breaking. . . ! He decided to go back in his office. When work was done, he still found that man there. And the next day, the day after that. . . so one night, he decided to stay later than the pthers, and clean. Then it began. People were real, but he just couldn't feel them. . . He divorced, and his wife took custody of their daughter, Jane.

He hospitalized, because he was a danger for him, and for the others. One night, he heard the screams of a young woman. Since then, he asked to be put in the padded cell where the woman was. Her name was Rachel. The suicidal woman. . . He didn't like to see people in agony, so, he stayed with her.


That's what I thought in my first playthrough, in this are many spoilers so better read it after your first playthrough, please. But maybe you'll just figure it out, and you won't need to read it.

Well you can get Ending 3 by talking to the White Lady. Believe me, it works, I got that ending like, 3 times. >_<

Oh, don't get me started on that... I got Ending 3 more than five times while trying to get Ending 6, but I finally succeeded.

@Ivanna: Try a few different choices in the beginning, and with the White Woman, Danny and the stitched man, and you might just be well on your way in Ending 4, or maybe even Ending 6.

Ending 1 is the only ending you can get without anything strange happening... yet. It's an ending where you get influenced by outside sources and despise Julius, just wanting the two weeks to get by already. In the end, you drug him too much, and you know... you did something wrong. Something you can't take back.

I have half of a partially encrypted walkthrough for Ending 6. PM me if you want it, but I will only give it out if you have achieved Endings 1 to 5. To confirm it, please either state the names of the endings in the PMs or write down basically what happens.

I don't want to see people rush. It's fairly easy to get the first five endings.
