Was going through Super Robot Taisen music on Youtube, and encountered this piece.
Between the featured robot with the red and blue masks, and looking like a fusion between the two big spirit types, it really brought me back. I found myself envisioning a kickass opening sequence with all sorts of big name dreamers spraying shots all over the place and all that. I'm amazed by how much of this game I remembered. (Seriously, the Vulpine Dreamer? How the hell did I recall that?)
How about y'all? Any of you been tempted to revisit this classic gem of a game? (I know I might sound like I'm gushing, but honestly, I'd say Endless Night's Dream is in my favorite five of all time, after Final Fantasy Tactics, Soul Silver, Vindictus, and FF9)

To me, END had a lot of potential that wasn't utilized by the early Web 2.0 internet. That, and distribution technologies have gotten a lot better since then.
I think I've covered this before: it came out when the personal web page was dying. This meant that it became more of a solo effort than a multi-creator collab -- which it was never meant to be. Reality's End is sorta 0-for-everything in the "Hey other people, do stuff~!" department.
I do have heaps of unreleased character design and plot for this poor old thing. I have been trying to think of a way to do the spirit system in another game form that won't have me saying "Waitaminute, that's solveable by even an old computer!" Finding that out really angried up my blood. Stupid AI...

Wow, has it really been 7 years since I last played this on a regular basis? *doublecheks scoreboard standings*
I see Draggy is still crushing our hopes and dreams with high scores in the thousands and a power level of 80.
