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.

Hi, I sent you a mail. I really appreciate the fact that a translator is willing to help, so you are more than welcome! Thank you very much.

Probably a false positive, since only two antiviruses no one's ever heard of detected it.

What got you into Yume Nikki? How did you discover it?

He was and I assume is still is a heavy TV Tropes user, he found out many amazing games that would play to completion and love a lot, although he would never play more than 30 mins of the games he discovered through that website. Personally never understood it and I can see why people hate it per that thread you linked
As for the last question, he is my brother and I love him, needless to say we are polar opposites when it comes to politics.


>not being friends with someone because they use a website
Gosh you're all so horribly young


It's less about the website itself, and more to do with the type of people who generally use it. I wouldn't dislike somebody just because they use Bing, but there's a good chance that I wont like a troper. My comment was mostly a joke anyway.


It's worth noting that most people on most websites (including tvtropes AND uboachan) are regular people but that websites and online communities often encourage a certain standard of behavior among their users. New users will usually look at what sort of content is well received and at least subconsciously tailor their responses to match it. This is why most online communities receive a reputation for being a "hive mind." Furthermore, most people being different personalities to different situations, so it's hard to accurately classify a person as being a certain way, even though people make this unfair snap judgment all the time. I personally like to take this a step further and play with people's expectations by not consistently behaving in the same way in a given location to see how people will react.


I found it back in 2008 when it had the attention of 4chan.

So here is an interesting topic. To me what makes Yume Nikki different from other games is that the focus is not on any sort of game play but is all on the emotion behind it.

One of my favorite things to do in video games is explore. Even if there's nothing really there to explore, I'll probably spend a chunk of time doing so anyways. Yume Nikki is pure exploration. You can, and are expected to, look around in every little nook and corner.


For me it has always been a means towards a form of mental clarity and escape that rivals a dream like state. I have an unbroken tradition of playing yn during late nights for long periods of time. There is a unique flavor of mental state that this game induces for me. It's hard to properly phrase this


I wish I could give you a hug; I have had very similar experiences. Right down to being abused by your "best friend." I thought I deserved it at the time, due to how I was raised.

The creator of YN is truly someone who understood the mystery - not that it was solved, but that the amorphous psychic mystery is there in the first place.

It really makes me wonder if everyone has the potential for these thoughts within them, or if we are simply fated to wander amongst them - the true extroverts - forever.

>tfw had a gf who would have understood this

>tfw I couldn't make myself accept that she actually cared about me
>tfw lack of trust destroyed the relationship

We are doomed to suffer.

It's really quite hard to put into words… I feel like the game understands me, it demonstrates my feelings of loneliness and disconnection perfectly. It's a really personal thing I suppose, you either get what I'm saying or you don't. It's just so comforting, I feel right at home when I play it. Not to mention I've always loved weird psychological shit like Silent Hill and LSD Dream Emulator so this was right up my alley.

Yume Nikki is just a great experience in general, sometimes i download the game to feel this experience again and again, the soundtrack and the events are probably the best part of it. I think Yume Nikki is mysterious and emotional.

Even if have a decent life right now, Yume Nikki is my place to escape from real life sometimes. This game got me interested into dreaming and writing my own dream dairy, it's a really interesting experience.

This game also had one of the best and most dedicated communities in gaming.

I just found a lot of Yume Nikki fan animations. They are pretty good.

I love these. I had no idea there were so many.

Wow, guys guess what!! Today is Yume Nikki's 13th birthday!! To believe it has been that long is amazing!! We've done so much in a short time. All you guys are truly amazing. So yea, you guys can post whatevs about Yume Nikki here! When did you guys first discover Yume Nikki, and how?


4chan's /x/, ages and ages ago. Before this site even existed.


was on youtube and randomly came across videos about lsd game, and then this one


I think I actually came across this website like months ago, and watched several youtube videos around that same time.

I'm not sure if I got here from Desu or if it was originally from a mention or a link in those youtube videos. This was a while back but last month or so I re-discovered this game (and downloaded it onto my new laptop) and came across this place again, which is what inspired me to download it anyway.

This site also introduced me to all the fangames like .flow


polite sage since I'm the same poster as above.

I know I said months, but it could even have been years in all honesty. My memory isn't too perfect after all so sometimes long ago things feel like they happened much closer to the current day than they actually did.

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?

In regards to the game itself, it's the soundtrack and imagery that really make the game for a lot of people.

On a more meta level, it's the mystery surrounding Kikiyama that causes people to keep coming back. It's never going to be solved, of course, but that isn't going to stop everyone from trying.


It puts you in a special mood, close to despair but not quite. It feels good to sense despair in others, while discussing it with everyone in the world.

It's also just fun. And really well done on a technical level, even if it doesn't look like it.


>And really well done on a technical level, even if it doesn't look like it.

it's literally an RPG maker game you bullshitter


That abuses the engine to accomplish things it was never designed for.


Walking and adding items to the inventory that change the look of your sprite?

There actually exists a fangame called Yume Nikki 3D, but the locations are mostly original, with a few exceptions. No idea in what state of development it is though, or if it's even being worked on anymore.



There's even a thread for it here. Hasn't been updated since 2014 tho iirc.




>smoking the herbal jew


yn + weed = "man this game is so good shit the soundtrack is so immersive mmmm"

yn + ketamine = permanent dissociation into unrecoverable neon dream psychosis

The music and general layout of this area reminds me of the legend of zelda. Am I the only one?

checkered tile path kinda reminds me of call of duty


The music that plays when you sit at the desk reminds me of this chiptune. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMduRpkEK08


Oh cool. I was thinking I was the only one who thought the tiled path looked like CoD. I'm glad I'm not.


Zelda and Earthbound yeah, but the whole area reminds me of Chrono Trigger's future world map too.
