What happened to Amy S' thread about how art relates to Yume Nikki? It had this picture on it. Just curious.

Anon who was offering criticism of your post, here.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_gadfly

Your perception is curious to me.

You are accusing "us" (it was really only me) of creating a circle jerk, but then you say here you only want to present ideas that are not controversial? That is the very act of circle-jerk creation you are partaking in. You SHOULD post controversial ideas, or else you are as guilty as any of us.

Please read the above link. Socrates is rightfully hailed and eternally enshrined as the Grandfather of all Western Philosophy for his acts, primarily, as a social gadfly. If you perceive yourself to be a gadfly, there is no greater service you can offer to a given community.

Given this new information, whether or not you decide to continue your discussion about Yume Nikki as a work of art rather than a game is up to you.

I actually have bits of the old thread saved.
Since I have limited internet access at the moment, I saved the page for offline reading on my phone, and, well, here it is.

On another note, hopefully more related to the old thread, regardless of how much or how little thought or meaning Kikiyama put in the game, no art exists in a vacuum. The game was inevitably influenced by something, whether it be anime or other video games or novels or paintings or advertisements or some shit… Pointing out the parallels and similarities could give some pretty interesting insight, couldn't it?

I mean, I understand how someone who has seen all of the 53679 "MADOTSUKI WAS RAPED XDDD" posts can have a knee-jerk reaction to anything to do with theories and speculation, but come on, this stupid No Fun Allowed "everything about YN has already been said" attitude is totally unnecessary. It just discourages any positive discussion or creativity (and maybe like 2 shitty threads, which wouldn't be a problem considering the inactivity of this place).

And honestly, even if, as someone has said, every single thing about YN has been revealed, written out and presented, it's still fucking fascinating to find artists that have had absolutely no way of knowing about YN come to similar artistic conclusions as Kikiyama. Makes you think about what kind of lives they led, what kind of personality or way of thinking they had… What were they trying to say with this stuff??? For what reason?

Here's a drawing that I stumbled upon on the net, by a 19th/20th century French artist named Odilon Redon. It immediately gave me Yume Nikki vibes.
Here's a short description of his work from Wikipedia:

Redon's works were described as "a synthesis of nightmares and dreams", as they contained dark, fantastical figures from the artist's own imagination.[13] His work represents an exploration of his internal feelings and psyche. He himself wanted to place "the logic of the visible at the service of the invisible".

Around the same time that I wrote my Undertale review, I also wrote a review on Touhou Project. I know that some people might hate me for this, but the review is somewhat negative. There might be some grammatical errors still, but I think that overall, it's better than the Undertale review. Please give me your thoughts.

>(Kikuri's art is also surprisingly good and I have my doubts that Zun made her sprite, wasn't he in a group or something at this time?)
Amusement makers, but I don't remember anyone else being cited in the staff roll. Doesn't mean that he couldn't have received some help though.

>Eh, that's basically like the game's manual though. The first Mario has a pretty interesting premise to it if you bother to read the manual, but that's pretty iffy when it comes to judging the game itself.

Not really a manual per se, you have the background of the characters and sometimes the background of the setting of the game (th7, for example). I actually read them after playing the games and it made feel everything feel more solid, story wise. Again, I'm mentioned them because that's where the "doesn't have enough depth" part is filled.

>It's a polish thing. Maybe that's just a nitpick. I said in my review that it might be due to Zun's, "stubbornness".

Don't get me wrong, ZUN could do with learning how to draw, what I meant is that the graphics as they are are sufficient, so to speak. It's not as bad as, say, undertale. For doujin standards it's pretty passable.

>You have to admit that there has been much much better though.

Doujin? Hardly. From guys who knew how to draw and spend their free time drawing in computers for years? Yeah. Most of the doujin floppy CGI specials suck balls (and for a reason, CGI drawing was ridiculously hard back in the 90's), and the one or two that don't were made by a guy with mad skills that later found a job in a company like C-ware, Telenet, Queensoft or elf or something (I have jedi somewhere, maybe I could upload it so you can see how ridiculous it is? I gave up ten minutes after trying to draw an eye).
Touhou is pretty respectable compared to other stuff, moreso coming from a guy who doesn't know how to draw. I actually haven't seen yet anyone using animated primitive shapes in their backgrounds, too. I'm not saying ZUN is good, I'm saying that they are pretty good for a 1996/97/98 doujin game, and actually better than some games made by companies.

>When judging a movie, the books that they're based on are kind of irrelevant. I guess with Touhou

Game manuals in the 80s and 90s had a lot more to them than instructions of controls, so I would say that they're comparable.
>I'm not saying ZUN is good, I'm saying that they are pretty good for a 1996/97/98 doujin game, and actually better than some games made by companies.
All right, but that doesn't really explain the windows games. It's like how I said. Improvements should be made if the means to do so are available. If the means didn't exist in the 90s, they do now.
>I have jedi somewhere, maybe I could upload it so you can see how ridiculous it is?

Yeah. Pics are how things look in windows. The first one being the background setting for touhou 8, the second being the character introduction of the same game. Of course, these weren't included in the translated version of any game (so naturally nobody has ever seen the damn thing). And this is how PC-98 manuals looked like. Most people don't even know these exist (I translated the index and and asterisk was added to show where the important bits are). https://pastebin.com/1BQEQMgr

It's worth nothing this method of including information in readme's is standard in japanese gaming (at least in doujin) so it's not like zun is just being autistic. Also, kinda hard to fit all that text into the games, too.

>All right, but that doesn't really explain the windows games. It's like how I said. Improvements should be made if the means to do so are available.

Oh yeah, I agree on that, but getting somebody to draw his things would ruin the spirit of the game, somehow. At least I see it that way. Nothing should stop him of learning that a hand isn't a ball with bananas sticking out of it though.

>That sounds interesting.

Not on my computer right now, I'll post it later.

Hello anon! I assume you, like many of us, are 14 year old shitposters from Taiwan! You might be a bit confused, but here is my guide to sucessfully avoid the ban hammer and appear like a sucessful and interesting person on this board! Also included are some general tips for the Uboachan lifestyle. You cool yet, holmes? Aight hombre, time to start this guía:


Uboachan's best is composed of /t/, /neet/ and /ot/

You should listen to Linkin Park while playing .flow, it helps a lot with the atmosphere

Don't forget to help tumblr figure out YN/.flow/2kki/memetsuki by revealing the truth to them (Mado was raped/Sabi is a slut/Urotsuki has big tits and is a homofurry transhuman boy/memetsuki has a dark past)

Listen to BABYMETAL while studying Spanish, it will help your pronounciation tenfold!

Always have a folder full of Cory ready, you might just not know when it might be useful.

Getting PROJECT Yume Nikki merchandise results in some sick reputation around these roads.

I'm actually surprised you know about this show. While not extremely rare on Japan since good bunch of people who read/watched it in the 90's remember it pretty fondly (and now more people know about it because the 2010 reboot), it's one of those shows that escape from the western eye. How did you find about it?

As for me, I was just lucky. It was on a recommendation list for children books, since I wanted something simple to read and exercise japanese.
