I'm gonna be working on a Yume Nikki-inspired game soon. It's not quite a fangame, but it will have heavy inspiration from YN and plenty of little references and such. I'm still working on the plot, but here's what I got so far.
The main character (LET'S CALL HIM X) wakes up in an operation room. There are several doctors standing around him commenting on how the operation was a success, though it isn't made clear quite what happened - then X is given anesthesia and falls asleep again.
X wakes once more. He's in another hospital bed, with a nurse arranging the room. It is explained to him that he signed up for a volunteer project in the psych ward - exploring people's minds to help solve their psychological traumas. However, his own mind and memories had to be surgically "wiped" so his memories didn't bleed through into others' minds. With this understood, X goes on a magical adventure through some very, very, VERY twisted people's minds with his trusty totallynotinspiredbytoriningen bird lady sidekick.
However, as their exploring and hospital work goes on, X begins to enter the minds of people that apparently KNEW him. And he begins to realize, "Hey, maybe I didn't voluntarily sign up for this..."
