The game first launched on 9th August 2018 in Japan. It never saw a western release.
Even though the game will end soon, Dream!ing‘s story will continue on 360Channel and other websites. Fans can expect a variety of new content. The game is getting a web serialisation for its story, bromides and even a memorial book. Currently, the collaboration cafe for the game at Ikebukuro Cafe & Space is still ongoing and will end on 21st February 2021.
Here is a brief description of the game’s story from its English fandom.com page:
Shinonome Academy is a prestigious institution located in the heart of Tokyo, its students comprised of geniuses from all fields. Within the Academy is the even more impressive Special Class, and, upon graduation, one member of this class will be elected to lead Japan.
Yuma Mochizuki, a country bumpkin, comes to Tokyo for the first time after he’s invited to join the Special Class— but, when he arrives, the auditorium is filled with beds, and he gets thrust into something called a “dream system”…?!
