Every character in Waking Dream is based on an actual person in real life. Their name, personality, stats, likes and dislikes are used. The character artwork is also accurate to their look in real life.
The reason is this, in real life who is the main character? From your perspective you are the main character. Everyone sees the world and feels life as if they were the main character, when in reality it could not be them but someone else. We are trying to bring this feeling into Waking dream; a sense that everyone is the main character. Of course in reality not everyone in Waking Dream is the main character it just feels like that.
Each character in Waking Dream is also played by that respective person they are based of.
Every character is played and has a story developed by the person they are based of, simply because what batter way to get someone’s accurate point of view than from that certain individual. If they play their character they will be more true to how they are, and again it will bring that sense of being the main character for everyone.
