But seriously, I saw some fan art for this on a forum, it looked freaky, and with me being a fan of all things strange decided to delve further...
it's extremely weird...some people have said its like Eraserhead: the game...sure, it's nothing to do with Eraserhead, but it is VERY surreal
just to get some background on it

There is very little to do in your room, but fall asleep and an entire dream world is yours to explore. The Z key can be used to interact or gain new effects. Certain locations beyond each door may yield more than one effect for the player to discover. Press 9 to wake yourself up. Use the desk in the room to save your progress, and hold the escape key for more than two seconds to exit the NASU console game.
Acquiring the bicycle, lamp and knife should be at the top of your list, as these items will double your character's speed, light up dark areas and allow basic attack moves to be executed. Nearly all locations are wrapped around, hence walking in one direction endlessly will always bring you back to the starting point.
Here are some screenshots from when I've been playing;
the room you are stuck in whilst awake...
Well, you can go out onto the balcony, but that's about it
One of the many trippy backgrounds
the central area for accessing the different dreams
yet another screwy background
there's an English translation that's easily obtainable from a quick search in Google
I recommend playing this at least once, especially if you're a fan of Mother, as many people have likened this game to that
