This is the story of the girl who dreamed the world.
Cyanotype Daydream: The Girl Who Dreamed the World is a visual novel that uses the medium to tell its story in a unique and unforgettable way.
It’s a story of longing, of hope, of despair; and above all, a story of love.
Three stories of star-crossed couples weave together a tapestry of emotions that converge in one final story, where the truth behind everything will be revealed.
Kaito wakes to find himself in a strange room with no memories of who he is or how he got there. The only other people around are a quiet white-haired girl and their overseer, Izumo. As three separate stories unfold around him, Kaito begins to wake up to the truth of this world, and his own role in it. And it’s all connected to the strange, silent girl named Yonagi…
