OverviewEdit

The Looking Glass is a Yume Nikki fangame by Bleet (who also made Fleshchild, the huntress of the hollow and Jasei no In:The Serpent's Lust). It stars a girl named Irene as she explores the newly-opened world behind her mirror.

Like Me and Hell Diary, The Looking Glass features spoken dialogue and flavortext when interacting with objects and characters. The game also features light adventure elements, such as simple puzzles and increased interactivity in the normal world. Unlike most protagonists Irene is also capable of leaving her room, and begins the game in her classroom at her school.

A remake of the game was in development for some time, but was eventually cancelled by the creator.

GameplayEdit

In The Looking Glass, players follow the traditional Yume Nikki fangame exploration scheme. There are various worlds you can explore along with effects to collect and events that can occur. There are no endings in the game yet.

There is a small amount of adventure gameplay in The Looking Glass, in the form of effects required to solve minor problems or puzzles.

PlotEdit

You play as Irene, who discovers a hidden world after falling through her mirror. The game follows her as she explores this new world after coming home from school.
