I've been playing this game for three years and I refuse to use the wiki or look at any walkthroughs. I love the feeling of slowly picking apart the mysteries on my own. Just a few moments ago I finally found the chainsaw effect. So excited to finally be able to start killing some NPCs!

Ill be starting coding classes soon and in almost a decade my love for Yume Nikki and various fan games has not diminished one bit. My dream is to be able to make my own YN inspired game. I know this means nothing to you as I can't do anything now but I know there are others like me.

I'm rambling, but I'm excited. And I'm excited about the future of fan games. The fact this board is still active is a reason to be positive and happy. Where does everyone think this genre can go? How can it evolve? General fangame love and positivity thread!

Your enthusiasm is cute! I'm glad even after all these years the games are still attracting people, especially 2kki.

That's really cool Anon. I assume you know that most fangames are made in rpgmaker though right? Coding isn't necissary unless you want to build it from scratch or implement unusual features.

>Where does everyone think this genre can go? How can it evolve?

Something I was thinking about to develop the genra is exploring more about the mind than just regular dreams built on memories. Like you could make a game that takes place in the real world from someone with intense hallucinations, or someone who constantly slips into daydreams and the world keeps changing around them, or a psychonaught where the effects are different drugs (as long as it's not made by a 13 year old), or about the dreams of someone incredibly social or who's a devout catholic, or a child god where the world emerges chaotically from his daydreams but is still "real".
I also think there should be some movement away from randomness. I like RNG, but it would also be cool to have events hidden behind cryptic rituals and puzzles that you have to theorise and discuss how to get, like with Siren or (I think) PT.

Good luck! I'm doing something similar, keeping a 2kki inspired project around on the backburner. It's to help me learn sprite art, something I can just throw assets at when I think of something.
I really love seeing these sorts of games pop up.

Its funny because I have definitely thought of this. I mention coding only because I am also really inspired by LSD Dream Emulator, So I really like the idea of being in a 3d world. That game has many downsides though and I dont like it as much as Yume Nikki. Besides the 1St person perspective I really like the randomness of the rooms.

So you could do something like maps have slightly different appearances based off the effects you have used recently (which could play into the psychonaut, schizophrenic, daydrreamer angle. Wouldnt be hard for me either). Things like draw distance, color of lights, color of fog, number of sprites, and even textures could change. Among many other things.

I would introduce a lot more dead space though and looping levels, thats all standard.

This is all just theory rn though. Future planning I guess. I actually really like the "randomness", so long as its not "Zomg" random or "you have a 1 on 10 billion chance of this happening" random. I think its OK in moderation but I want to primarily focus on something that provides a unique experience everytime it is interacted with, while still maintaining a cohesive feeling.
