[[ 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!
[[ GAMEPLAY ]]
bookSLEEPer is a partially stat-raising otome game. The game takes place over the course of nine days (reading week), and during this time, the player can make various decisions for the Protagonist (3 daytime decisions and 1 nighttime decision per day).
The daytime decisions may include: studying a subject, reading a novel, surfing the internet, researching on the internet, writing an essay, etc.
The nighttime decision determines which book the Protagonist falls asleep on (and thus which love interest she spends time with).
The player’s goal is (hopefully) to succeed in all her subjects (by studying those subjects or spending time inside the textbook for that subject), and possibly to successfully romance one of her love interests as well!
