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.

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.

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.

A lot of people know about the speed glitch, but there are actually a lot more interesting things that happen when you use effects with the chair. I wanted to see what all of them were so I made a spreadsheet documenting it along with other things. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1j-la3zVllugghwLUT4am2rw-ViPOcjQOkcwcWvSIW8Y/edit?usp=sharing

What are the places that madotsuki travels to in the nexusneIn a really psychological sense they could be apart of her memories, her dreams, her desires or places she just made up. Also the creatures that inhabit those areas are almost always an animal or some abstract being besides poniko. Are there any observant anons out there who might have picked up on something that i missed lore wise?

 No.6625

I don't understand what is it that you're asking, because you seem to reply to your own questions yourself… do you want to know what we think?

>What are the places that madotsuki travels to in the nexus?

That's a rather difficult question to answer because there is not a single answer. They could be anything, really, and everything depends on other factors. They could be memories, tied to real life experiences, just as they could be fictional places created by her mind while asleep. There isn't a single hint anywhere.

>Also the creatures that inhabit those areas are almost always an animal or some abstract being besides poniko

There are a few more that are anthropomorphic. Namely, the mall people, the guy fishing, and the people at the barracks, if my memory doesn't fail. To me, their design is simple only because they aren't tied to somebody Madotsuki knew, unless like Poniko who seems to be someone important enough to be differentiable from the rest. Also the toriningen. They're quite enigmatic, since they are well-defined beings with a rather specific purpose and states, unlike the others NPCs.

Hello anons.

I just wanted to ask all of you.
What do you think of our current situation here?

>Yume Nikki is dead

>.flow (my favorite) is dead
>Yume 2kki is soon going to be dead

How long 'till we drop the bucket?
There's not much to theorize, people are already burned out of YN and it's fangames, not to mention almost no fangame has been finished.

>Kikiyama disappeared.

>lolrust is developing other games, although he did post on twitter on aprilfools a year ago that he would consider remaking .flow on RPG Maker VX.
>2kki team is probably tired of developing, Wataru is RIP.

Ubuu is insatiable..

If I make a game and work hard on it, it won't be good enough. You guys claim to want new stuff but the moment it strays from what you're used to you don't like it.

My fan-game has a map with eyes looking at you. Yeah yeah, it's that again. I have the right to do it.

 No.6551

>>6550
Why do you even try to please ubuu? Also, it's the repetitive gameplay what kills it. If you make a map with edges and it is good, it will be good. If it's just another clone there just because and without adding much to the game, then that's it, don't blame us.

Not the guy you're chastising, but imagine if you were born today where Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus were "in." Where indoctrination and propagandizing of this terribly cruel and materialistic culture were at an all-time high due to technology making mass exposure cheap and easy.

Would you not wish you could be a part of something else?

There's nothing wrong with multiple eyes, I think they're aesthetic, but you have to consider *why* you're doing it. Is it just to copy Yume Nikki?
