SYNOPSIS

bookSLEEPer is the story of an undeclared college student who isn’t doing
so well in school. With finals coming up, she decides to spend her reading
week studying. When she accidentally falls asleep on a textbook, she
discovers that she can enter the world of a book when she sleeps on it.

Will our protagonist forge friendships, or even romances, as she explores these books?
Will she pass her exams, or will she drop out of college and become a cat lady?
The choice is yours!

(This game began as a NaNoRenO project. After the first version is complete,
we will be creating an expanded version with more features!)

art styles are included in the same game?

Alright, brief update! The demo on itch.io now includes part of the English route as well, so every route should be represented to some extent :D

I also fixed a bug with the sprites, so those should work fine (in the common route) now! There are still a lot of sprite position/transition problems that I haven't had time to fix, but those will hopefully be dealt with soon.

Thanks for visiting~

Gonna download the demo right now! I LOVE the idea of going inside the books, and I'm really curious about what kind of relationships can the MC have with those characters.

Hope you enjoy it, and please let us know what you think after you finish the demo! The game is definitely kind of rough right now, but I hope that doesn't detract too much from the experience :)
