This guy used to do videogame reviews but now he's doing these interesting, surreal and morbidly fascinating skits with like puppets and shit.

For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpTn-eH4omM

He has a similar taste to me and many others on this board (considering his love for Yume Nikki) so I figured people here know about him and like him.

Because i'm an obtuse asshole I've decided to go through this video and point out some of the regurgitated ideas.
- Creepy puppets in seemingly innocent setting filled with weird noises(Don't hug me I'm scared)
- Murderous inhuman character with friendly disposition(Lamas with hats and Charlie the Unicorn, the banana slug even has the same eyes)
- Creepy Childish drawings used to create atmosphere(Yume Nikki did it better)
- Characters saying nonsensical nonsense and being delusional(Also don't hug me i'm scared, also done by lots of, "lol what did I just watch", kind of stuff like Salad Fingers")
- Edgy child kidnapping and murder to show of how creepy a character is(Unbelievable Tales)
- Villain acting confused as to why other characters don't like them(every Disney film with a crazy villain)
- Creepy house tour(Like a billion things, I don't know)
- Innocent children communicating with friendly being that they can't understand(My Neighbor Totoro, The Goonies, the Pokemon Movies I guess)
- Ironic anti-humor used in a puppet show where the characters have silly voices(Potter Puppet Pals)
I get that there's always going to be influences of other stuff in everything, but the product should still feel like its own thing and not just an amalgamation of other stuff I've seen. I'd call this creatively bankrupt, pretentious, and hallow. Even those Poppy videos are better than this repetitive novelty.



Hi Jordan.


If Jordon really did make this thread, that would be really pathetic.


It's a pretty interesting watch, but I wish he'd go back to doing game reviews.

I wrote a review of Undertale a few years ago when it was still really popular, but I never had the guts or motivation to actually publish it. It's practically the first thing I've written for fun. Some words and sentences are a little repetitive and parts of it are admittedly nit picky. I would really appreciate it if some of you guys could look at it and give me your thoughts.

I used to like newgrounds because every once in a blue moon something good would be put there, but I've gotten sick of the site constantly being flooded with engine made platformers with floaty controls made by people who don't understand basic level design. The only thing even remotely decent about these games is usually the simplistic, minimalistic, cutesy art. A game is something that should be preconceived and made with care over how ever long it takes to make it as best as the developer can. While stuff like company release dates put a bit of a curb on this, these contests just spit on the face of the idea that video games should be made because the developer came up with a good idea that they want to make a reality. So many of the developers who enter these contests only make stuff for them, so it's frustrating to see somebody who might actually have potential if they took the time to polish their shit, waste their time.

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.


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 just liked my post where I compared the discussion of the topic's invigoration of the community to cancer cells. Sure wish I could read it again.


I don't remember it, but now I wish I could read it, too. Deletion really should only be a final resort, there is a reason saging exists…

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".

I haven't read anything involving ubuu and tumblr in a long time, so either they don't or the people that did left the circles,


Just make a new survey, you'll have an horde of tumblrinas talking trash again.

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.

No, we don't accept applications since patchy's death. Specially because the last time we tried something like that we only got parasites instead of actual members.

At least it's /ot/ and not other board.

Anyone else play Oracle of Ages? I just finished emulating it and beating it for the first time on my Android phone with MyBoy.

If you want to play too, I can upload the .apk and the ROM. Let me know!
