Originally suggested some time ago, the idea has finally come true and is official now.

Uboachan is currently and actively working on the translation of Manga, Doujinshi and other fanworks related to Yume Nikki. The group behind the translations is Patchy Illusion Team. For those who don't know, we were originally a group oriented to game making/help. The team was disbanded, however, and I decided to take the reins and use it for this project. The name may ring a bell in some users.

We decided to create an all-purpose thread where we will publish new releases, post announcements, answer questions from the users and take suggestions. If you have something to say, this is the right place.

That being said, here's our first announcement: We are currently in the need of more people. If you want to give a hand, please, make sure to check the about page in our site and see what would you like to apply for:


You may also post in the thread, or send me a mail (hover over my name in the post).

More hands working on this means faster and better translations. This is a work done by the users for the users. And, as much as we all would love to translate manga as fast as possible, it is a rather time-consuming process prone to error. We're all human and we need to use our time for other things, such as work and/or college, or other people pointing out what we did wrong.

Please, notice no prior experience in any of these fields is needed at all. I personally don't have any problems with teaching people how to use gimp and what's the difference between a good and bad translation. Ultimately, we're doing this for our own enjoyment out of our own free will, so don't feel discouraged to give it a try if you want to participate. We don't bite.

Hey /yn/, I've been thinking, what is it about stuff like yume nikki that gives it that extra charm or appeal? There isn't much characterization with the MC herself and there isn't enough story to even be coherent. Then why is it so popular?

The whole idea of fandoms is pretty toxic and self-destructive. Being part of a fandom means dedicating yourself to a piece of media. A piece of media made by another human being just like yourself. Making a work a fiction part of your identity, part of who you are is an incredible dumb thing to do. To me it seems like it's just a way for some people to compensate for their own lack of personality. The same thing goes for people who obsess over celebrities. Even if your not shining, if you admire people who are it feels like you're in the spotlight too. People should live their own lives. Who they are should be front and center to them. Worshiping the product of another person's mind is just pathetic and this pathetic nature explains why most fandoms are filled with crazed, irrational people. There already has to be something wrong with someone for them to proudly proclaim them self to be part of a cult based around imaginary people. There's nothing wrong with simply enjoying something. I obviously enjoy Yume Nikki. There's only a problem when people make that thing part of their own identity, which is what fandoms are all about.

I agree with what you say, but I think you're off with saying that "proclaiming to be fan of something as part of your personality is pathetic". What makes your personality is what you like and what you don't like, what you do and don't do (based, again, in your likings); there isn't a single human being in the whole planet detached from this, at all, so something not being part of your personality is illogical, to say the least. The monk meditating at the top of a sharp pike-like mountain is that exactly because he's mimicking that which he knows and likes. Granted, my example is slightly exaggerated but I think it illustrates perfectly what I want to say.

As a person slightly obessessed over small things myself (some of which lack a fandom, completely), I can tell you that liking things to the point they do change yourself enough to become part of yourself do exist. I like what I like, I enjoy what I like, and that makes part of my personality, because I'd be other person otherwise.

I think that liking something isn't bad in on itself, the problem comes when you start liking whatever is popular only and solely to fill a void on your own personality, like most people on fandoms seems to do. And then I have to agree with that notion, it is extremely pathetic, and irritating to people outside their shitty circle.



Nah. It's literally a series of art assets you can interact/play with.

You're just vastly insecure about personal tastes in general.


AhahahahahahAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh my god you nailed it spot on. Man I adore you!

Anyone tagged this yet? If not i could tag it. I want everyone on last.fm to know how much of a bundle of sticks I am.


Oh neat, that's the wallpaper I made a long time ago
Didn't make the original pic, just the wallpaper version


Any tips for importing it? I've been trying to get it on Amazon.co.jp, and I get the message "We're sorry. This item can't be shipped to your selected destination." I really would like to have that wall scroll.


i would like to know as well ;-;


Bumping for other newfriends who are interested in the (still live!!!!) Mediafire links.

Has this ever happened to anyone else?


There's only one explanation: kikiyama is youtube


could be some kikyama poser or youtube added kikiyama to their database of copyrighted songs (lol)


But Yume Nikki is freeware, this makes no sense.

I really like the music in YN, and have also been supremely inspired by avant garde minimalist and ambient music in the past.

Two albums which I highly recommend to anyone interested in what might be able to be described as "Dark Ambient"

Naked City's "Absinthe"
Toby Driver's "In the L..L..Library Loft"

As with YN compared to most other games, these albums require patience for immersion.

I often see the common complaint that Yume Nikki is "so slow" but right when you get the bike it cuts down on like half the walking speed. To me it makes me feel like they didn't want to get to know the game because its boring or they don't like the concept or it makes them uncomfortable or whatever. Sort of like evangelion's "2deep4u" bull. Do you think that people would actually play it if your walking speed was increased or had a bike from the beginning or do you agree with me?

Or maybe even the bike is too slow, some people like it, some people don't. The game is still enjoyable with that, YN has its pros and cons like any other game, you know you can delete your posts right?


File: 1485451598901.jpg (32.81 KB, 470x350, mc.jpg)

Just because you double the speed of your character, doesn't mean the game will be much faster if your game is already riddled with mazes and endless scrolling maps. Anyone who plays ym knows about the bike.

I really like Yume Nikki but I'd never enjoy it as much without a map.

I have ADD so I can understand how this game would be unappealing to anyone "impatient".


File: 1485470174512.jpg (32.88 KB, 500x500, 1485205899310.jpg)

What do you mean i can delete my posts? Do you think i should so it doesnt overflow the board?


>Anyone who plays ym knows about the bike.
Anyone who completes YN knows about the bike. I only found it on my second go at the game, and it was I believe the last effect I found in one of the door rooms. I had explored a lot of the game up to that point, and was somewhat frustrated to find out that I had missed such a helpful effect in my first pass of Graffiti World. Not that it was the game's fault, mind you. I'm not saying game should have put big signs telling me "hey, there's something important here," I just wished I had found it sooner is all.


I just found the bike on my first playthrough of the game, with a few worlds and many Effects left to go - when entering new worlds or areas for the first time I will not use it. Much like IRL, walking gives you time to spend more time focusing on your senses and surroundings, when with a bicycle, you have to be focused on what's in front of you and pretty much nothing else…

Is Yume Nikki supposed to be scary? Because I am getting heavy bouts of paranoia
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I dare to say it's neither, I don't even understand why people associate it with scary things at all. There are like a very few areas that are legit "unnerving" (at most), the rest are just weird or silly or even (very few) happy.


Because it's fashion, it's trendy to say you like a horror game.


I know. I've seen this before as well but it really isn't horror at all.
It's as much a horror as LCD Dream Emulator. Which obviously also is not a horror.


File: 1489148103195.gif (630.04 KB, 950x950, 1468911161859.gif)



In the same way that sensory isolation chambers are sometimes the most unnerving experiences that people have, I think the game is more of an interactive rorschach test for ourselves.

Not that it was necessarily intended that way, but maybe moreso that many people drawn to it conceptually can empathize at a deep level with the creator and his abstract way of expressing things. How would you describe imageboards to somebody - a place where everyone is no-one, on purpose?

What scene to you has the most "magic"? If that makes any sense.

To me I feel like its the monkey rave in the desert. I dont know why but it gave me a mixture of emotions the first time I saw it.

sky garden



I like how all three of these places are pretty much next to each other in the game.

File: 1489234631042-1.jpg (149.74 KB, 850x647, __madotsuki_and_mafurako_y….jpg)

Block World.
I think I spent around two hours wandering around the Block World on my first playthrough, it's somewhat charming and enigmatic.
I have always been a big fan of cubes and other parallelepipedons, for some reason, they always managed to calm me down.
The color palette they used here is really relaxing.
The music gives off a "stuck on an intricated puzzle" feeling;
at first, it made me anxious, but I learned to appreciate it after some time.


File: 1489359723812.png (16.64 KB, 789x600, 789px-Parallelepiped.svg[1….png)

i like how you describe them as parallelopiedons, maybe they are angled 45 degrees and that explains the weird angle of them


As mentioned before sky garden and staircase. Not mentioned is flower cave, if anyone knows what I'm talking about. And did the screenshot guy kill the dudes standing there?

What do you think is the best music or "single loop" really? I honestly love the opening music for yume nikki. It captures that sense of mystery for me and is relaxing and gentle. I sort of wish there was more of the song to enjoy though.

Flute room theme and Toriningen theme. The first time I heard the latter it freaked me the fuck out.


Dark Water and Dense Woods B are my top favorites. I also really like Mars (surface), Shield-Folk World, Mural World/Footprint Path, Number World, Kalimba, and Guillotine Room/Uboa.

Honestly most of the loops are pretty good, this game has some of the best short music I've ever heard.


I love every single track of the game. Yume nikki's soundtrack is one of the things that made me love the game so much. If I really had to chose, I'd go for the one that feels as one of the most iconic, the ending tune. It brings me chills each time I hear it.

I'm a big fan of Dark World.
