Amusing Dream (夢幻冒険記 アミュージングドリーム Mugen Bouken-ki Amusing Dream, meaning Dream Adventure Chronicles: Amusing Dream)[1] is a cancelled RPG game for the Super Famicom that was in development by Takara.

The game's character design was done by mangaka Kouga Yun; the script was written by Ikeda Misa and music composed by Kuzuu Chinatsu.

Plot

An unknown landscape shrouded in a thin mist. On a small hill, far away, stands a tower-like figure. Though it is the first time the protagonist sees this place, it makes him feel a strange nostalgia.

A girl appears and whispers to him "Follow me, I am the guide of this world. I think I can help you.".

From those few words, his adventure begins.

Preview

The game was going to be released in Fall 1992, but it was delayed until July 1993 and eventually cancelled for unknown reasons. No prototypes of the game exist.

Additionally, a French magazine preview described a possible release saying: "'Amusing Dream' is a truly Japanese RPG, with truly Japanese characters and truly Japanese graphic design. But is all of this Japanese, you may wonder? Absolutely, and consequently, we are very doubtful whether Japan-exclusive 'Amusing Dream' will ever be distributed in Europe. This is approximately what Takara told us when we came blundering in. This Dream may be Amusing, but it will not become a reality, at least not in our country..."
