Yumemi Mystery Mansion, known as Yumemi Yakata no Monogatari (夢見館の物語) in Japan, is a Sega Mega-CD adventure game. In North America the game was published by Vic Tokai, who renamed the game Mansion of Hidden Souls. It is reliant on full motion video and is compatible with the Sega Mouse. The game was followed by The Mansion of Hidden Souls and Torico on the Sega Saturn.

Gameplay

Yumemi Mystery Mansion plays similarly to D or Burn Cycle in which it is a first person point n click adventure. The player assumes the role of a young man named Jonathan and is tasked with finding his sister inside the titular mansion within 2 hours. (there is no pausing as the game is played in real time). The mansion is pre-rendered and movement is shown via short FMV segments. Items can be picked up and used in certain situations (such as puzzles) and the player can save progress at anytime once the diary is found.

Controls

Up move forwards, examine objects Left or Right turn on the spot A brings up inventory, navigate inventory C use item from inventory.
