do you remember playing Yume Nikki for the first time, Anons?

Yup. I think I played it before version 0.10 but I can't be sure - it was in 2008 or 2009. Saw some anons talking about it on 4chan's /x/ and decided to try it out. At first I thought it was pretty boring, took me ages to get anywhere, then I dropped it.

Around 2010 anons were having a fit about how the game had been updated after a long time, and I decided to check it out again, this time following a guide whenever I got stuck. It was a fucking wild ride. It helped that I was really depressed at this point in my life and the game really inspired me.

I am playing Yume Nikki for the first time right about now. (And I wonder whether Madotsuki refusing to save the game at some point was a glitch or had an actual explanation.)

 No.8090

I played first in 2008, only thing I knew was how to get the bike. From there I played for like three hours just walking around, and remember getting scared by the superfast toriningen. WHAM! My memory is really bad, so this is all I remember.

Yeah. It was fun. I remember randomly finding it on a forum when I was looking for ganes. I loved the settings and madotsuki became my dream girl. Love time Nikki forever and inspired me to game dev

I've lost years, weeks, days, and hours of my life to that board. At least once upon a time it was good. I'd say I got lucky and caught it right at the best time. 2008-2012 was the Golden Age. You still had good storytellers. Part of me wishes we could encourage them to come back and make it as good as it once was. Maybe that's just a pipe dream though. Just an oldfag feeling a bit sad about the current state of affairs.

Yume Nikki is about a girl with social anxiety who out of boredom undertakes what Nietzsche and Jung considered to be a great task of self-discovery that for most leads to madness–understanding the unconscious forces within. Madotsuki does this through dreams which she then interprets and studies in her "dream diary".

She finds several disturbing things in her dreams. Violent and gory imagery, sexually suggestive creatures and objects, and very distant characters who rarely acknowledge her existence. While her dreams are landscapes of exploration, she finds herself confused, scared, and alone as she traverses through the unconscious. She becomes more and more consumed by her inexplicable attachment to the weird and unsettling things within.

This is why she commits suicide. She can't handle the fact that these things are within her. That deep down we have these violent, sexual, animalistic, creepy, disgusting feelings that swirl in our minds and have an unspoken influence on who we are. This girl with an already low self-esteem and without any means of venting the angst resulting from this shocking discovery turned to end it all. The exploration of our unconscious can be our own undoing. It's a process of self deconstruction which in the hands of a person of weak resolve leads to self destruction.

Murder is basically removal. You don't want someone to be there, so you remove them. That's what it is.

I feel compelled to state, for the record, that, as a anonymous mega serial killer and lunatic internet poster myself, I realize that the whole appeal of YN/videogames/internetposting is to semi-deliberately wallow in confusion and unreality for the sake of some obscure and completely sick and wrong, yes, wrong, sense of the "sublime" or "wonder" or whatever. Nevertheless, death and murder are very different. Like, completely different. Just saying. Who knows; might be important.

Also, selectively and painstakingly hiding very tiny bits of a video game whilst mentally enacting an act of stabbing and/or shooting and/or suicide is a poor and limp-wristedly ineffectual slap fight placebo substitute for ALT-F4 -> Uninstall. Not all removal is murder. Some removal is not-murder.

 No.8375

>>8373
Murder isn't removal. The person still exists, just in a different state. The person still left traces of themself and the impact of their death reverberates and can be felt. If the person was really removed, none of their traces would be left and nobody would remember them. People fade, not disappear entirely. Also, I don't think there is an objective, "right", and, "wrong", in that sense. I don't think there's anything bad about the enjoyment people get from escapism. There's also a lot of beautiful things about Yume Nikki. If you only saw the hideous and grotesque parts, you're the one with a warped perception of things.

I understand that I am picking pieces out of it, that's why I said it's an interpretation. It's just what I thought when I played it. I'm not just playing for the gory bits, I love almost everything about Yume Nikki, but to explain my interpretation I had to bring up the parts of the game that were relevant to how I interpreted it. Clearly not every single aspect of the game went into that interpretation, and even if it had, I wouldn't bother writing every single bit out.

It's an interpretation. It has points and flaws, I'm not cherry-picking the game. It's a great game and I'll play it and replay it for a long time, and as I play it more my view of the possible story will change. That's the beauty of the game… there's no limit to how the game can be interpreted.

If Yume Nikki were to get a live action adaption, what would you want to see in it? Specific worlds and effects? Actors? Etc.

surrealism has been popular before, it's nothing new. it isn't as popular as other things because it's harder to talk about and it's more of using your own imagination.

>To people who like Yume Nikki, it is an amazing game. To people who don't like Yume Nikki, it's a terrible game. Not a lot of neutral stance.

i feel like this is an over saturated statement. i have a few friends who aren't in love with the game but don't hate it, so there is some neutrality

I'm pretty sure Yume Nikki's art direction is more expressionist than surrealist. Which is why it ultimately got so popular in my opinion – it's not just weird crap, it's weird crap with an underlying emotional pressure. Maybe something can be made if you approach the source material from that angle.

Yes, surrealism has been popular before, but the keyword there is HAS. I can't say that I recall any surrealist blockbuster films in the last 10 years. Surrealism was strong in it's time, but that time is over, pop culture has for the most part moved on from that.

What I'd like to know is what the fangames classify as.

2kki is definitely dadaism, but what is .flow? Deconstructivism? Industrialism?

I don't know, I'm pretty sure all dream diaries could be considered expressionist. Even the more realistic designs can appear kinda warped and grotesque simply because of the graphic limitations.

Someone made a journal linking to a download of Yume Nikki 0.06, and compiled a lot of stuff from that version of the game. Worth a read if you want to know what 0.06 was like.

https://obliviouspyromaniac.deviantart.com/journal/yume-nikki-version-0-06-finds-697662062

A video of 0.04 has surfaced. Notably, Candle World’s OST is different.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ql-HvEwkPGI

An old version of the Sky Garden’s OST has been uploaded to youtube. If you listen closely, you can hear something that sounds like voices in the background.

Welcome to Uboachan then. Yume Nikki was a wonderful experience the first time I played it through, and I hope it was the same for you. Stick around, maybe check out .flow and Yume 2kki if you want some more, and have a great time.

Welcome to the board! As long as you like the game, you're welcome here.

Though if you're here just for the game, maybe avoid /hikki/ for a little while (or at least read the threads there and decide if you want to post there or not). Hikki is not as, well, chill I guess.

Damn, it took me such a long time to understand you’re supposed to read from top to bottom starting from the right.

yea same

I kept reading it right to left, then left to right, and neither made any sense. This would probably make more sense if the comics were in one consecutive strip rather than three columns.

Good comic though.

Seems like you guys aren't used to japanese standards. You always read (in order of precedence) from top to bottom and right to left, no exceptions. The strips follow the classical yon-koma style (although they aren't 4 panels), and so that's how one should read them. You may say they would probably make more sense if the comics were consecutive strips rather than columns, but the thing is, in japan, they are consecutive strips already and make sense that way.

 No.8285

>>8283
Yea I see that now, I just haven't read many comics in this style so it's not really the first way I think of things.
