Hello everyone, I present to you "Yume Nikki Browser".

It's basically Yume Nikki made in plain html, but mainly to explore areas of the game with the web browser and cursor.

There're a lot of minor updates and fixing that I'll implement in the future, now that it's practically finished (except for some minor areas).

I was hoping for you to try it and give me some feedback/suggestions for it. I hope you like it!

On checkeredtilepath2.html, there's a path missing, among some on other maps
But it's really great to see the maps in full, with animations, music and whatnot, proper kudos deserved

Recently finished Yume Nikki despite knowing about it for a long time.

I'd like to hear what other people thought about the game when they first played it, and when they first finished it.

For me, I thought it was immensely relatable. I spend almost all of my time escaping online or in games, then going to bed to hope I might have a fun dream, almost never leaving this small space. The ending was perfect, it was predictable but in a strange way it wasn't. I feel like in my own life I predict suicide as the likely outcome, but I still repress it, and I did the same in Yume Nikki. Even as Madotsuki stepped up, I didn't know where she was going until it was too late.

I'm sorry if this has been posted a million times before, but I'd still like to hear your first impressions of the game or about my reaction.

I loved it

Even if the game technically didn't have a story it has really fucking strong themes
The hands and eyes and sexual imagery are gonna stay with me
Part of me think I am overthinking every little detail but the fact so many images and themes appear so often means that thought was obviously put into this
I got lost a lot which I was fine with and I diiiiiid use a guide for the last few effects
I didn't see the ending coming at all and it felt abrupt but tbh in a dialogueless game what else ia there to do
I hated hell
The headless pregant women freaked me the fuck out too
Also I hate to admit this but I neber found the white dessert on my first playthrough
I felt a constant sense of dead but never like fear
I played the game at 8pm to calm down after a bad day on a whim and I beat it in 4 hours and then stayed up till 5 thinking and thinking and talking to my sister about it
I really really hope she didn't die
As a massive loser who saw herself too much in her I really wsnt the both of us to get a happy ending

I've just finished it, have been reading stuff about it now.
I think I actually found this game from this website
I was in a similar position to >>8797, I hadn't played anything that is fun for the same reasons as this before.
Anyway, at first I was very confused. I was somehow aware that it wasn't gonna be a "normal" game, but it took me a little bit to figure out what the game is about and how it works.
But then it was very nice, walking and exploring stuff. Finding deeper worlds. And I mean, the stop-light effects, that's pure genius!
The only thing that bothered me a little was the often returning feeling that I didn't figure something out, but luckily I didn't get obsessed over it. I say "luckily" because often this feeling was mistaken because some things in this game "just exist", like vending machines. Not a bad thing, just unusual to me. Another example of my wrong assumptions was that I thought the floating figures in the jungle were a puzzle, like I had to combine them in a special way to get somewhere/something or something like that.
I think this is a significant weakness of games with clever combos like this one partially (for me at least). It's very very cool when you figure something out on your own (for me it was the witch effect for example), but the possibilities of such mechanics are endless, so it's almost impossible to find all such things, plus it generates wrong expectations. Like me thinking the flute (which I found early on) would play some role at some point. It didn't. That didn't stop me from playing it to several npc's in hopes of something up until I read about it on the wiki.
Now of course, my personal stupidity, limited game experience and unfounded expectations are a big culprit in this. Just keep in mind that this is my subjective experience with the game
Once I finished looking through all the nexus worlds I had probably around 16 if not a few more effects, and I didn't know where to begin looking for the remaining bunch. I ended up using the wiki.
If I had made a map of every area I went to and kept track of the world-connections I could've probably found out many more autonomously, but to me this is not too fun. Following wiki instructions wasn't too bad but it does make it less immersive.
Finally, the ending. My first reaction was to laugh. I'm sorry. After gathering 24 effects, them appearing inPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I don't understand why people think madotsuki is locked in her room? What is the idea/evidense about this theory?
To me it kinda flies in the fave of the themes of social anxiety and being a hikkimori in my view of the game

 No.9191

Sounds like a weird theory and I've never heard of it before. If anyone locked her door, I think it would've been Mado herself.

iir it's what the manga actually went with(not that the manga is canon but it seemed to be believed by quite a few people)

I was updating my Yume Nikki folder when I found this.
It's a CD called "音日記" ("Sound Diary") that was released during Comiket 86. The PVs sound nice, but unfortunately, I can't seem to find any upload, and the people doing it don't sell it by mail.
PVs:
http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm24219498
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBNCgQzRVdg (same video as above)
https://soundcloud.com/photosphere-official/uboa-0001crossfade

But while looking for it, I found this other thing:
http://zh.yumenikki.wikia.com/wiki/Music_CD
It's the YN wiki in Chinese, and it list all the CDs released, either officially or by doujin artists. So I thought about hunting them all down, and… failed miserably.

The official ones are already available on other threads, and these are the links:

Me again - well, it's saying the nyaa tracker isn't working, yet when I click to download the torrent file/magnet link from nyaa, it does say that I already have that torrent in my client and that it has merged the trackers. Maybe it just needs a little more time? Those trackers do manage a lot of files…maybe try leaving it on for a little while longer, if you wouldn't mind trying?

I recently discovered Victor Brauner's artwork, and I was wondering: could it have inspired YN on some level?

That's true. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the imagery in the game did have religious connotations, especially with the existence of Mayan/Paracas deities.

There are some forms of media that you'd think either referenced or inspired the game from the modern age, though it could just be coincidental

Y'know, there was actually a pretty good analysis on /t/ (unheard of, I know. It was like one of the only salvageable posts on there) regarding some of the Peruvian imagery. Genuinely recommend going through it. A number of designs were directly pulled from Paracas textiles, most of which are directly symbolic of dreams and the mythology surrounding dreams in Paracas culture. I'm surprised nobody else has brought this up ever, but Madotsuki's sweater design looks strikingly similar to these military tunics worn by officers of the Sapa Incan military.

Among those, there are also various Japanese cultural references that I'm a little too tired to list off but most should be obvious if you've already gone through the game.

The reason why the discussion of this game is so limited (besides being old) is that everyone has a bad habit of trying to make massive stretches when discussing the game's imagery which lead to very personal, emotionally-charged and often very amateurish interpretations. When you only make interpretations that are nothing of worth, then I guess it's better not to discuss it seriously at all. That's why I find a lot of stuff like this riveting and I think it's depressing that this game's had little to no proper analysis done in the time it's been out.

There's an excellent one from 2013 (don't be confused by the upload date, the original was deleted) that I think it's unparalleled even to this day. Sadly, it was only in Spanish until recently the reuploader added English subtitles, so I think it's a perfect time to show it to the non-Spanish speaking community.

On the topic of this thread, the user who made this analysis also talked about the possible inspirations for the game's visual aesthetic in other two videos. One covers the pre-columbian art and the other the potential artistic influences in general, the latter one also being an amazing critique on YNDD as well as an analysis of many aspects of Yume Nikki and its fangames. These ones have not been translated to English yet, however, but I'll leave the links here anyway in case you're interested:

I'm surprised how little has been talked about the influence of various 20th century artists/art movements on Yume Nikki, compared to all the theories/explanations for the aztec imagery. Pictured is a sculpture by the dada artist Jean Arp.
