Dreams of Dead (sic): Scary Wonderland, or DoD for short, is a Russian Yume Nikki fangame. The current version of the game is a demo version, which the creators said they will remake in the future.
DoD is an exploration adventure horror game with a few puzzles. It features some scary and dark themes, so the creators have rated this game as appropriate for age "14 years or older".
The game starts with a linear introduction scene. Once the introduction is over, Aya wakes up in a hospital room. Aya can save by using her roommate's diary, and she can sleep in the vacant bed to be transported to her Dream World. The Nexus has 4 different available dream worlds to explore from there.
You play as a girl named Aya (Not to be confused with Aya from Hallucigenia), who wakes up in the hospital for unknown reasons. This game has "borrowed" various sound effects and graphics from Yume Nikki, including a Toriningen standing at a desk found in the beginning of one of the dreamworld. The rest of the game is composed of original graphics and music.

Effects are known in this game as "Items" or "Objects". This is a partial list of them.
- Knife (Нож) - Aya's weapon.
- Dream Seal (Печать снов) - equipping this effect will wake Aya up.
- There is a wake up event, in the Emerald Palace where a pink-haired lady (apparently named Dorothy) resides, that is required to be seen to progress. However you need to manually open the menu and wake up at the perfect time at the end of the event to move on, or else the game will softlock if you let the event wake you up normally.
- There is an ambulance/van you must ride to reach a hospital later in the game. It plays a missing sound effect file a few times which causes the game to crash. To fix this. go into the Audio/SE folder and find the "Girl whimpers three times_Nightingale Music Productions_1246.mp3" file and make a copy. Add a 7 at the end of its filename (before the .mp3).
