---- Stages----

-REM sleep is when the dream takes place
-Non-REM sleep is the period of time when the characters are in a "black" area where they are lighted but there is no light. (Appears to be from above)
-Non- REM sleep can happen before or after a dream
-In Non-REM sleep the characters are in their normal dress.

----Music Director (???)-----

-Have special option screen and/or Level that has player determine which pre mixed song or music score to use with the dream.
-After they beat the game?
-Pre game start quiz having game engine calculate personality matches for the number of pre mixed songs.
-Have plain musical score, 3 or 4 song choices, (just sound effects?)

  ----Dream ignition---

Selene's dream ignition can happen one of 3 ways.
-If she is in the lounge, Hynry can send her into ignition
-If she walks through the dream ignition barrier in the main dream station room
-If she is given a shot with the sedation gun
However, when Selene enters Dream ignition, she always goes through a period of freeze. If she is walking through the dream ignition barrier it happens while in the barrier, saving time and keeping her alert in non-REM.


Before each Non-REM stage starts, the Dream title is displays in the center of the screen, play music bite that's been chosen for level. Change font?
