So I was browsing TV Tropes when I stumbled upon the Spiritual Adaptation page. In the video games subpage it said that "The David Lynch film Eraserhead has an adaptation in the form of Yume Nikki. The similarities between the two are uncanny." One of the main interpretations of the film is that the protagonist Henry Spencer is facing the troubles of fatherhood much like David Lynch was going through when he had his first kid. So what if in Yume Nikki, Madotsuki is actually pregnant and the whole game is Madotsuki's journey through motherhood. It might be her worrying on might what happen to her child if said kid grew up. She might be afraid of failing as a mom and her child living a terrible life. At least, I think that's what I think.

hm. this is interesting


legit apply that to poniko and it's literally the plot of the light novel>
"i am not in your dream", in which madotsuki represents poniko's unborn daughter>
literally i never thought anybody would ever in a million years have that interpretation



I really like this one. Specially if some of the npcs like poniko or monoe represent what she thinks her daughter would look like. Being anxious about their well-being in this world would only be natural.


this has no relation to yume nikki

i discovered this game back in 2011 when i was like 8, it actually really depressed me when i watched a playthrough of it on youtube. read up on as much as i could at the time and slowly lost interest. i was too stupid to figure out how to get the game so i just kinda gave up on it. about 2 years ago i heard about it again and i only just now decided to try playing it again. alot of heavy nostalgia and creepy vibes came flooding back. i still love the game and i sometimes get hints of how it made me feel when i watched it back then, despite being an apathetic 20 yr old. kinda sucks hearing people say the communities kinda dead. if it makes anyone feel any better i got a couple of my friends into the game. some of them didnt really like it, its not a game for everyone and i guess that makes sense. its a really creepy game and it still legitimately creeps me out sometimes. im not done with the game yet and im trying to do as much as i can without tutorials or maps. wish me luck!

Apart from some of the music in the game, such as the Kalimba and Monoko events, can you guys think of any other African influences in the themes of the game?

Maybe Anansi was an influence?

Some of the stories have him shapeshift in order to evade opponents

These fellows appear reminiscent of traditional african masks.

Hey where i can buy some yume nikki merch with nice quality

fangamer has an official yume nikki collection and, from what i've heard, the products are good quality. It's pricey though so make sure your wallets okay

I'm new. The numbers in the image will be useful? cause I took screenshot of every fucking number.


No, they're useless. though everyone did the same thing when they played the game for the first time, lol


Yeah that always puzzle me. Are they some sort of reference? Since they have no real use in-game.


might just be usual mad nonsense. i imagine if there was something about them some other madman here would have already discovered it

trippy music video made by a friend, inspired by yume 2kki.

this channel also has a bunch of 'sleep mixes' with music from YN and other fangames: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLGjsXZ-3jnrEKwttCbjoBa9td0MWrX1Tk



Wouldn't say they are "overrated" as much as just being praised for their great animations. But I do agree that other creators should receive appreciation too.


heya hujle, nice to see you posting here also thanks for banning hummy.

I mean, gobou makes great stuff, for sure. But seeing how the entire fandom goes crazy over his stuff, and how the others are receiving from little to no attention makes me feel sad.
Hi hi. Let's not bring up here the stuff from our Discord server, shall we?

Yume Nikki is a game that has a ton of different versions as well as disparate kinds of content. In addition to this it's not a linear game, and as such playthroughs will be more-or-less unique. In this sort of a context it seems inevitable that certain elements of the game will impress themselves upon some players more than others. Different people will take away different things from the game depending on their experience and interpretation. This individual and subjective nature of the game is directly suggested in the player exploring Madotsuki's dream worlds. (i.e. her unconscious.)

But the most explicit mention of rorschach test's in the game is perhaps the character FACE. Far from resembling phallic imagery, FACE far more clearly resembles an inkblot test. The idea that FACE looks like phallic imagery is obviously a libidinal interpretation, which gives more weight to the desires of the Id. (Lol dongs.) This also suggests the interpretive and subjective nature of the game.

I don't even know how often people come to this chan, but I thought I'd leave this here.

Here is a set of rorschach test cards. The resemblance to FACE is obvious when you compare the two

Thank you for everything, Gatobot! Kikiyama would be proud of you. (Not irony)
