Yume Nikki will get an update.
After the game's reception and all the mystery and buzz around it, I'm sure that Kikiyama as a really smart and imaginative person decided to just shut up, and blast everyone's socks off with an update when the game is almost forgotten. He's an epic guy like that.
The update can come any day now. It could be tomorrow, it could be next christmas…
…but I'm sure it will happen. Soon, perhaps.
Mark my words. There's just as much confirmation that he's dead as there's confirmation that he's not dead.

>Cave Story
Oh man, that reminds me of how when I was in middle school I would get hours to myself to play the game towards the end of the year. The library in my middle school was weirdly big and hardly anybody went there. Every assembly, every lunch, I would go there. During the last day we had nothing to do so I could literally spend the entire seven hours going at it. I managed to finish it right before I had to go home(I never did manage to actually go all the way through hell though).

Does anyone know what this is?


I saw it on lolrust's twitter


Yes, it means you don't know how to lurk. It's literally a thread in the first page.


i saw lolrust post about fraud too IIRC
i don't think nipnongs are aware of it or maybe KIKIYAMA is actually secretly alive and the secret is just behind the language barrier


>the language barrier
What language barrier?

How do you feel playing Yume Nikki?
I mean, I only play when i have time to wonder off in the game, and I always feel strange about it.
Idk, how do you feel?


I feel bored you just walk and nothing happens and you're soooo slow what a garbage game huh?


Really? You have to have
patience to play the game, you are wondering off in someone dreams.
I really like the game, but i see why you would not like it, but can you expand on the idea?


Pretty sure they where joking.
PS: you don't need to enter your damn email, friend.

maybe a twinge of what might be apprehension once in a while, but… calm.
a lot of it has to do with how you play as well, y'know?

exceptions are numbers world and hell. fuck that shit. eyesores.

GBF x Yume Nikki event when


It's as 'official' as anything else


sorry for the off-topic bump, but what is this email service called?
i ended up losing my password and registrations were closed for a long time, i completely forgot about it until now.


openmailbox, but I don't recommend it anymore. I chose it because it had an non-autistic html interface and imap but they cancelled it unless you pay and redesigned the interface to look more smartphone-ish, and it sucks balls.
Still no reply from kiki, damn, I wanted him to authorize my official onaholes.


i see, thank you anyway.

Is there ever a point in yume nikki where you feel kikyama is trying too hard to scare you? Namely with the body horror section or the ghost section. I feel that yn works best when its spooks are more subtle ie the mall area where there are lifeless humans around they dont do anything scary but them being motionless is where the real scare is.

It would also probably be better if you never fight the main, "villain". That keeps them more threatening. Only fighting off grotesque spiders, bats and stuff like that adds to the game play and keeps you on your toes, while not subtracting from the main threat

>If somebody really tried I think they'd be able to pull off something scary in an rpg.
Honestly, I believe some well-done graphics could do wonders, though that's asking way too much, specially from a medium such as rpgmaker where authors rarely aren't amateurs.

Something that really bothers me is that these modern "horror games" seem too cartoon-ish and therefore not scary. The best 2D horror games I played relied on the fact that the closest to reality something looks, the creepier it gets. The Uncanny Valley is your best friend, followed by a fitting OST. Ao Oni had "scary" moments because it relied on jumpscares, but once you looked at the demon's design, it is just hilariously stupid and comical, even. However, look at any of H.R. Giger's works and you can't say they are comical at all. They're unnerving; maybe not scary, but they do touch the primal sense of "this isn't right, at all". And that's the heart of horror, what I meant with "real horror" some posts back: the sensation that you are against something opposed to reality. That you are dealing with something that breaks all common sense, strips you off your security and leaves you stark naked in the dark.

Maybe this babble is a bit too much but that's the closest I can come by putting into words what I think horror should be.

Thought you guys would enjoy this dreamy collection.

Here are a bunch of remixed songs from Yume Nikki, fully packed with different arrangements of the popular sound effects and background music. Great music to listen while drifting off into sleep… :)

Also make sure to listen to Track 8 - Disregard first. Best track ever.

Necrobumping is bad enough on it's own, but Jesus Christ.
"Bump" doesn't fucking contribute anything to the thread topic. lurkmoar.

Anybody have this?



Nice necro.

I think the OP is referring to the 24 Effects album. It's available on youtube if you want to listen to it.

Sick Mind generates this error message when opened, help please


It's a problem with the executable - RPG_RT, I believe. Just copy the executable from a fangame that works, and paste the copied executable into the sickmind folder. This will replace the broken executable with a functional executable if you didn't stick your dick in a toaster.

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm going to make a Yume Nikki comic pretty soon in celebration of 20 years since it last updated, Oct 1 2007! I made the cover and here it is!! What do you all think, let me know!

Is the future really like that?


Sorry I meant 10. Thank you for finding that!

>20 years
God, you almost gave me a mini heart attack with that. For a second it made me wonder what was wrong with my memory.

I agree with >>6761 that the newbie art is going to repel people, but if you like YN why not. If at least you have fun with it then it is worth it, and from what I've observed, Yume Nikki is usually a great influence in people's artistic path. Go for it.

What approach are you going to give, if it's not too much to ask? With/without storyline, comical, surreal, 2d4u philosophical ramblings, …?


Well, I'm thinking it will be like the manga, how it's mostly from Madotsuki's POV, but I will give lots of other characters the spotlight too. The story is going to be my theories of the game, like how Madotsuki needs to find the effects or else she will be trapped in her dream world forever. I imagine the people who are helping Madotsuki are Masada, Poniko, Mars-San, Mafurako, Monoko, Monoe, and Kamakurako. But then there are the characters who are essentially trying to forbid Madotsuki from leaving, like Uboa, Takofuusen, FACE, Kyuu-Kyuu kun, and the torinigen. Everyone else are people who were also trapped in the dream world. They all tried to get the effects but didn't and now they are stuck there. I also accept the theory that Madotsuki was raped.

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?

>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?


For me, it's the fact that the game is a very abstract and enigmatic approach to something that interests me–how our mind processes the shit we go through outside of the conscious processing and how that affects us in making our decisions. Dreams are a major place we do that subconscious processing. Whether it's processing mundane things like events at school or media we consume, or something much more significant like abuse, social anxiety, or feelings of despair, dreams impact us in ways we can't explain or fully realize. We can't even remember them completely. And we don't know how we keep the terrible things inside of us hidden from our "active mind" in the background. It's just there keeping us sane until we let that out.

That's why I like Yume Nikki. It reminds me of things I wished couldn't be remembered and it fills me with emotions I didn't know existed in me. It's an experience every time I enter its world and for that it's my favorite game.


Same could be said about any piece of fiction, really.
