I don't know very well how to explain this but bear with me
Four years ago I played Yume Nikki for the first time, and I enjoyed it quite a bit, at the same time I was really getting into programming and had become a full-time NEET
So I took my sweet free time and started cloning the RPG Maker engine onto the HTML5 Platform, my aim was to build an engine powerful enough so that It could run Yume Nikki flawlessly and possibly make it so a single instance could be played by a lot of people at the same time, so you could have the experience of bumping into other people as you play, with the possibilities of some minor interaction
Thing is, I'm lazy as hell and get depressed fairly easily, so the project didn't really ever get too far, biggest problem was that I couldn't build a disassembler to fetch all the vital data I need from the Yume Nikki inner code, and by that I mean general event handling, I also don't know the game well enough to clone it with the poor documentation it has, and by that I mean few strings of japanese scattered across it's RPGMaker file
The engine itself I was building, however, works fairly well, as it is it can mimic most rpg maker interactions fairly easily besides some graphical shenanigans, which weren't easy to handle at the time in HTML5, dunno if that has changed, most stuff works well like AI handling, Map building, visual layering, Event positioning and handling, memory management, Sound effects (Including, of course, the different sounds for different grounds), etc etc, it has some of the multiplayer aspect built in, but that's pretty much at 10%
Why I'm telling all this? Well, I didn't plan on going back to it, it's been untouched for years, and I don't even remember how it works right now, but recently there was a pretty good Yume Nikki thread on 4chan that got me a bit nostalgic, and honestly, it's a shame I could never got to do anything with it, reprogramming the entirety of Yume Nikki might be beyond my abilities, but even then, maybe I could work something out with it, maybe even a fangame, although my drawing skills are pretty much nonexistant
I don't really know what to do with this, but I'd really like to do something
Pic related, it's an ancient snippet I had around when still working on it

To be honest, the whole YN world is pretty dead as of late, as the new trend shit is to make cheap horror games.
I honestly recommend you working on something different altogether, but your idea of implementing multiplayer interaction sounds really, really nice and something too cool to leave aside, so now I have mixed feelings about what you should do.
I think that it actually may work pretty nice if done, be it either a fangame or that YN clone; however, bear in mind my warning.

If you decide for the later just drop a post around here, I know japanese and how2RPGfucker so I can translate stuff for you and help.


Is the scene really dying? Well, it was never that much active to begin with, but I was hoping fan projects such as yume 2kki were able to keep the interest alive

And about working on something different altogether, well, truth be told I also used the engine to try working on an horror game that didn't really have anything to do with yume nikki at all besides the general "RPG maker feel"

It was meant to be essentialy a co-op horror game where you had to escape a cursed building in 12 hours (which would be about 2~3 real time hours) by any means possible, even if at times that might lead to screwing over the other people you were playing with

But as I state before, It's a bit hard for me to maintain a consistent drive to do things, specially something that takes so much care. Besides, I really can't draw for shit, it really didn't go very well, I'm not even gonna post a picture of this one since it looks so ugly


File: 1454404300452.png (863.54 KB, 600x719, CYt4r39WkAA5XoB.png)

Unless some bigshot identity mentions or even brings up Yume Nikki, I can pretty much bet that the whole scene is dying if not dead.

To be honest, I'm actually surprised it made it till 2016. I have no clue how the scene is in japan and likewise have no clue how active the 2kki devs are at their chans. But I'm also guessing the numbers aren't as motivated as they were a few years back.

If you dont know what to do with it then just opensource it, maybe someone else can find use for it.


Thing is, I WANT to make use of it, I just don't know how to go on doing that, maybe I could work out some community project of sorts, or team up with someone who can help with the visuals and general aesthetics, when it comes to programming I'm pretty confident on my abilities

If I were to opensource I'd like at least to do something with it before releasing it, besides, as it is right now It's really not that useful for general use, there are no graphical editors or anything of the like besides a hastly put-together map editor, everything is built by command line, you'd have to be familiar enough with scripting to the point where you'd probably not need this to begin with

I have a complaint about some of these fan games: most of them seem to "try too hard" to emulate the weirdness/edginess of the first game. Some parts of the original Yume Nikki bothered me and seemed to try too hard in of themselves, but the game still stayed mysterious and a little creepy, but really most of all, atmospheric and lonely; depressing.

I feel like all and any fan games kind of miss the point of the original. The original was out of place, RPG-wise. It's not like any other game in that it doesn't follow conventional game logic. That was the cool thing - its uniqueness. The fan games lose that because they are all very similar to the original.

So besides getting more general gameplay from them that is similar, they miss what was good about Yume Nikki. If the fan games were as different from Yume Nikki as Yume Nikki was from regular RPG-style games, then they might have been interesting. But the point that I got from the original was that Madotsuki was mostly completely alone in the dream world. When you see it with a different character, all I feel is "Eh, yeah somebody's mimicking the style to try to create something similar again."

Can anybody sympathize with my views on this? I know this is the fan game section so I'm probably talking to a lot of people who disagree with me, but just give me your thoughts on it.

>Initially, Yume Nikki came off as a boring and level-design wise, poorly designed. It was only after seeing a lot of the areas and events, and knowing the ending wasn't out of place that I begun to appreciate the game
The game was the first of its kind and it came out when, 2003 i think?
Also it was made by one guy i think and for free, you can cut it some slack in that regard.
Keep in mind too 2003 was a very different year for indie games than it is now.

Again i agree, but just to remember that gamedesign was much less demanding and evolved back then so people need to keep this in mind.


I do keep all of that in mind. For one, I realize that YN is a very different game from most games at that time. Its difference increases its value, in my opinion. That may have also allowed it to convey deeper emotional ideas, since it breaks the fourth wall by being so outside of regular game and artistic design, and despite its simplicity as well.

Being a weird and thematically similar game to YN just wouldn't cut it again. Its not different enough to have the same impact as YN.

I've played a bit of Yume 2kki, and while I think some of the areas, art styles and music are really cool, it doesn't have an underlying theme set of themes, possibly because its been put together by multiple people who have a different idea of what the game is. While I'm sure a lot of people here appreciate its design, everyone knows that its probably only a tenth of the size of Yume Nikki in interest and uniqueness, despite there being many more levels in 2kki.

While it seems that Yume Nikki may have been under-explored creatively by the developer, continuing off that exploration in another game just doesn't work. One obvious reason for that is that it's a different group of people working on it. Its no longer the artistic expression of a single story, but just genuine wacky randomness and insanity. I could see the appeal of that too, but its the result of missing elements.


> 2kki isn't nearly as surreal in a way,

imo it's even more surreal. im amazed at how creative it is at times.


2kki is a huge hit-or-miss. Some areas in 2kki really do feel like exploring a surreal dream, especially Wataru's maps. Others just feel like a bad copypaste from YN.


I think most would agree with you OP. No fangame could ever touch the pure originality and creativity of YN. That said, fangames can still be worthwhile, even if they don't reach such heights. Only .flow comes close, although less in an artsy fartsy way and more in just a fun experience way. Other fangames, though, are more about just feeding the desire for more that YN left me with. Exploring these games, while not as full of meaning and pure craftsmanship, are fun and at least give me a taste of the feeling that YN gave me. 2kki is always full of surprises. LcdDem, Yume Nisshi, Yume Graffiti all had their own feelings and own stories that were told through a Yume Nikki lens. Ultra Violet, Me, Miserere were fun to explore. Hell Diary, The Other Line, Kataribesou added gameplay twists…

Basically, you're right. YN is my favorite game after all. But I don't think that stops fangames from being worthwhile and fun experiences in their own right. They don't have to meet or surpass the best game ever to achieve that

So, I was exploring a game called JanusVR which transforms the internet in actual Physical places and it is pretty darn awesome (click here for more info: http://www.janusvr.com/) then suddenly I've found something on a room of "popular" sites that made me get pretty excited but also full of questions - an attempt to remake Yume Nikki in 3D made by one guy called Nakura. Unfortunally all I've got was this exact information about it (Pic Related) and I couldn't find any more further infromation on the internet… So… Any of you guys knows about this? Do any of you know if this is/isn't abandoned?
Also… any contact with this guy named Nakura so we can give him some inspiration/help?
Thank you.

Seems like a shittier Worlds. The lounge looks the same for every webpage.


Are you kidding man! The game is awesome! You just got to find the best web pages. Sites like "Youtube" and other shit aren't cool but you got to visit the "Popular Sites" hub and then you will think LOTSA things. Seriously. I recomend you check it out again.


Come the fuck on man.


It seems from my first impression of JanusVR like it's up to fans of webpages to design a non-default lounge for particular ones.


Well I visited the megeman battlenetwork world. I need more of that.

What kind of character sprites do you prefer to see in fangames? Do you like to see new character sprites, or do you prefer the commonplace Madotsuki sprite edits?

As long as the Madotsuki sprite edits are relatively nice, I usually favor those over new sprites.

>commonplace Madotsuki sprite edits
Aka recolors, fuck that shit, it's not the fact that they are recolors, it just gives the impression of playing another fongom clone.

I have played lots of fangames for long time already and now I kinda beg for different things, even in those minor details, let's get real most fangames are literally the same thing.

A mado edit doesn't mean a game is bad or unoriginal, it's just a "ew" first impression to me.


My preference goes something like this:

Completely original sprite > Mado edit > RPG Maker default sprite

same here


File: 1442491796658.png (19.36 KB, 137x114, yuppo.png)

I actually think Mado recolors are quite charming in fangames. Of course, it is fun to see original sprites, yes, but I do enjoy seeing what others can pull off with a basic Mado-type sprite.

Though, that's just my opinion!


I prefer Mado edits.
It feels more like a proper continuation f the game universe. I mean yeah, new sprites are nice but the original style is my favorite

Hi all,

I started making a small game which is greatly inspired by both Yume Nikki (for the world you can explore non-linearly) and Digimon World 1 (because you can take many forms depending on your stats).

The name has been found quite lazily: Yu(me nikki)Dig(imon)

The game was started for an RPG contest, made by RPG Maker (even though my game wasn't made with RPG maker…)

You can download the game here: http://contest.rpgmakerweb.com/game/view/id/707#.U7IHMbFReAI (thats my submission page)

If you liked the game I would really appreciate if you could share the link. Otherwise I just want you to play the game to have your feedback.
I'm going to continue the project (as there are still some bugs), but I this version can still be played and be enjoyed by most of you I think.


As to what isn't really explained in the game:

Killing creatures and collecting orbs increase your karma.
Karma can be use in the pause menu (X to open the menu during exploration), to increase your health, shield, dark, light, rock, or fire affinity.

I'm waiting for you feedbacks guys, hope you will enjoy


Please, don't be an asshole and don't use the fucked up mechanics from Digimon World 1, PLEASE.


Haha, the only mechanics I took from Digimon World 1 is the evolution system, the fact that you have many different routes for killing the enemy, and when you die, you go back to the "baby" stage.
I removed the "death from old age" as I didn't have time to balance it to make it an interesting mechanics (and I think that forcing you to die, if done well is really interesting: force you to restart a new path, and avoid being overpowered).


File: 1404213939076.jpg (107.98 KB, 1056x592, 886fb20be7.jpg)

Oh and, here is a screenshot from the battle screen.

There are 4 types: Dark, Light, Rock and Fire. Each types have strenght and weaknesses against other type (like in Pokemon)
When you start casting a skill, your type switch to the one you are casting, so will have to try to always take the type which is strong against the attack you will be receiving.

The battle system is much more dynamic than your regular JRPG and there really is a big difference between a good and a bad player, which what I think makes the game interesting.

Tell me what your thoughts are

Hi everyone. I'm making a fangame, and I have a doubt. (I think this is the correct thread. If not, corret me)

Well, there's this thing of the animation before changing effects. (Battle animations, I believe are the name. The default animations are nice, but I want to make my own. So, how do you do that? There's a base or something? A image that tells you where every frame should go?

Thanks in advance


Hey, welcome to the site!
The battle animations format really depends on the engine you're using for your fangame.
If you're using RPG Maker 2003, these are the sizes you should use for the files:

Battle Animations
Folder: Battle
Image size: 480x480
Each cel in a battle animation is 96x96 pixels. This allows 5 cels per line and 5 cels per column.

Battle Animations (large)
Folder: Battle2
Image size: 640x640
Each cel in a large battle animation is 128x128 pixels. This allows 5 cels per line/column.

If you interact with the small creature in the third picture, it'll follow you. Killing it makes a message box appear with an ellipsis. After that, the game may not let you back into the arrow world. Haven't been able to get the arrow to show back up after killing the little creature.

Hello everyone. So, I've played Yume Nikki this summer and enjoyed it so much that I couldn't resist to make a fangame.

Yume Nikki 3d was made in a few days and instead of using RPG Maker, I used an old 3d engine from the 90's. The alpha version is short and may be completed in 20 mins or so. Your task is to find three keys in random locations and open the exit. All locations are connected by portals. For the most part I tried to create my own locations instead of copying ones from the original game, and only a few places have references to the original Yume Nikki.

I think you should include linux support, linux is rather large these days, even steam is supported and i bet many here cant afford windows and wont put up with piracy.

Just joking around a bit.

Madotsuki finally decides to escape the room, and outside she finds a typical low-class russian environment, complete with a curse word on the wall.


Playing this game again made me realize how much I need more 3D YNFGs in my life. Thank you for making such great games.

ITT: Bad ideas for a fangame you had before, but are now glad you never actually put in a game.

As for me:
>Homestuck inspired world
>A world where you were brought to the next map by randomly stepping on an unmarked tile


>one of the dreamers must get through scenarios demanding very quick response time, and they never get a fast movement Effect to help them

Instead, I'm giving that dreamer a completely different objective from the other dreamer(s). No, it's not "collecting orbs."h


Please don't make your dreams into Saw traps


>already did all of my bad ideas

I've come to the realization that there is hardly ever a justification for even a moderately sized looping map in all directions. Smaller, intricate, constrained maps are better. Or if you want looping, making it easy to navigate with sprinkles of significant landmarks and clear directions for those who just want to get through it is best.


>The hell maze is a reference to yume nikki and that makes it ok!



Only if there are cues and hints that guide the dreamer rather than deceive them.

Also, for heaven's sake, make it look different. No more red shit.

YN + fangames are often lacking in the anti-frustration features.

Hello, I just recently found more Yume Nikki fangames, and I really want to play a lot of them. Do you have any recommendations? I've already played .flow and am in the process of playing Yume 2kki. I'm going to try out Me eventually.
I'm looking for games with lots of interesting and useful effects. That's what I loved about Yume Nikki. Well, not all of them were useful, but…
Also, it'd be nice if there's lots of places to explore.
If you can think of any fangames that fit those areas, please tell me! Thanks!


Ultra Violet is a very charming game. The worlds are all a treat for the eyes, and you can get an effect that allows you to save inside the dream. Please give it a try if you haven't done so already.
