Mother MadoSo 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.
my yume nikki collection!I am very happy to finally own all of this! I was originally planning to start opening and using and playing with some of this stuff once I collected them all of the Fangamer merch, but now that they announced new merch on their website, I am considering waiting until those come out to do that, but for now let me know what you all think! Thank you for reading this!
Yume Nikki is a rorschach testYume 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.)
KIkiyama is Hiroko NishikawaHiroko Nishikawa was a game designer at Asmik Ace Entertainment. Between the 1970s, 80s and 90s she'd often have some dreams and nightmares. She would usually write these down in her dream diary. It was the inspiration for Osamu Sato to make LSD: Dream Emulator. So, Yume Nikki might be how she felt over the years of her dreaming.
Yume Nikki Scanlations ProjectOriginally suggested some time ago, the idea has finally come true and is official now.
Need help finding a specific fan videoHi, I was browsing through an old Yume Nikki fansite (http://www.theneitherworld.com/yumenikki/fan/fanvids.htm) when I saw they mentioned a Yume Nikki parody of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (or a Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei parody of Yume Nikki? I'm not sure.)
Music ThreadOne of my favourite threads was "Music that reminds you of Yume Nikki", so I thought I'd start a new one!
what are these cubes called?These stone cubes with :( on four sides are real. I've seen someone post a picture of them in some grassy plains with tourists standing nearby and they are also huge irl.
Yume Nikki 0.10 VS. Steam ReleaseHey. Just wanted to know whether I should play the the 0.10 release uploaded here on this website, or the steam release. I read a few of the reviews on the Steam release's page that claimed that the "fan translation" was better or something like that. Wanted to know if the version provided on this forum is… well, that. Or if there really is any difference at all. Thanks.
Yume Nikki DeluxeI've always really enjoyed the idea of a "deluxe mod" for Yume Nikki. It would reimplement cut and unused content from all previous versions into 0.10 and maybe add some quality of life improvements too
Multiplayer Yume NikkiFound online, exactly as the title sounds
Audience think I want to commit suicideHi, it's good to encounter a nice Yume Nikki community. Yesterday I finished the game with his Traggic ending, I felt empty at the time but then I realised it was a good ending for Madotsuki, who continuously had to face Horrific figures such as the Monster (I still don't know his name, help me out with that) that appears in Poniko's room (It's funny because I know the name of this blonde girl and I don't know the name of the monster) when you press too many times de Light Button. In inspiration for that I made a video representing the ending but with my Inksona (Yeah, I do this kind of poop too) with a Final message in the end.
yume plushiesHello there uboa, i was surfing on twitter and found this dude that made a madotsuki plushie.
Project Yume Nikki Website & MerchNow, instead of viewing the MediaFire folder, you can download the entire package so you won't have to download each file one by one. Both are .zip.
Project Yume Nikki'Ello, me again. I'm the same bloke that translated every Yume Nikki file name that was in Japanese 0to English and dug through over 50 pages of Mercari search results looking for Yume Nikki merch, and also a lot of digging on me phone too. This time I present you's with another collection, that is every picture that was used on the Project Yume Nikki website.
Witch's Flight ResearchI've been trying to search online just where the hell that picture is from. This is my data collected so far of images SIMILAR to what's in the game. If anyone can give any real results, that'd be amazing.
TranslationMe mate wanted me to translate all of the file names in Yume Nikki to English so he could use them, and I thought other people could use them too if they don't want to sift through files that names are only numbers and mojibake.
Yume Nikki Merchandise ResearchI've been searching everywhere for photos and pictures like these, and going through almost 60 pages of Mercari, as well as countless hours of night searching, I figured you'd all be interested in my discoveries to pick up every bit of detail of every released official Yume Nikki item, since this isn't exactly the easiest to find. And if you're interested in buying any of the merchandise items,just go to Mercari JP and copy and paste the name of the item that correlates to the picture.
If you could remake YN, what would you change?I am currently working on a concept for an exploration game, which has some ties to YN, it's not exactly a fan-game, but I want it to be a surreal walking simulator.
Yume Nikki BrowserHello everyone, I present to you "Yume Nikki Browser".
First Thoughts ThreadRecently finished Yume Nikki despite knowing about it for a long time.
Possible source of inspirationI recently discovered Victor Brauner's artwork, and I was wondering: could it have inspired YN on some level?
Yume Niiki browser versSomeone made a browser version of the game, I don't think anyone has posted about it yet. So if you're a fan wo can't download the game you can go here http://yumenikki-game.tkool.andapp.jp/
yoome nikkii put le yume nikki on the web, not much else to say
Secret event in yume nikki found after all these years?(Version: 0.10) Here's how I got it: I deposited all effects in Nexus except for triangle kerchief, went to sky garden (where u enter Ghost World) and everything turned red), everything also began to shake, NPC's blocked the entrance of the Ghost World and then saw Uboa in the sky for 5 seconds, Madotsuki then woke up (sadly have no image footage because of how surprised I was)
feelings associated with gameis there any word for how this game makes me feel?
Missing Yume-ProductsWhatever happened to the mobile version of NASU?
yume nikki randomizervgperson recently made REM-9 a yume nikki randomizer program.
NASU browser portI made a browser port of NASU. Let me know if it sucks but keep in mind I might cry.
HeeeelpSo I just downloaded .Flow from it's original downloading page (I downloaded the English translation).
TheoryYume nikki theory:
Music Copyright?hey! so, i'm working on a school project (45 sec horror film) and think kikyama's music would be perfect for it. they haven't been heard from in so long (except for the kadokawa remake thing, which makes it even more bizarre.) i have no idea if it'd be an issue at all since idk if the music is copyrighted (and the film would likely have several public screenings.) does anyone have any insight?
Compilation of Yume Nikki VideosYo, im making a yume nikki video compilation channel (mostly reuploads of niconico videos and making playlist for videos already being uploaded there)
Ukagaka mado ghostDoes anyone know if the download to this Madotsuki ukagaka(pic related) exists?
Yume Nikki official names?Okay, so this may seem a little weird to you guys, but I think this is weird. It seems that everyone says that only Madotsuki, Monoe and Monoko have official names and that makes sense. Madotsuki's name is seen directly in the menu, while Monoe and Monoko's names are found from their picture files. Why? Why does it say that? I have RPG Maker 2003 myself, and I've looked through the files of Yume Nikki. Everything has names! The sound effects! The maps! The pictures! Even the events! Why hasn't ANYONE even translated them? They're right there, all in the text. Why hasn't anyone tried to do this? The game has been out for over 10 years. I would do this myself but I don't have the Japanese version of RPG Maker, so everything is gibberish. Just, if things have official names, why use fan ones? I just wish someone would do this. Thank you.
a list of yn discord serversyeah discord kinda sucks, but i made a list for all the yume nikki discords i could find and get approval of.
Woah!I feel like a moron! I knew Yume Nikki was put on steam, but I thought it was just a port! I didn't realize they revamped the game in 3D! And here I am playing Yume 2kki on my tablet because I needed my surrealist fix. Too bad my computer isn't working (thx linux)… And that I don't have a steam account.
Things that Remind You of YNPossibly wrong section but I can't for the life of me think where else this would go other than maybe Vomitive Shithole
General help threadhere we post "WHY IS THIS NOT WORKING" and then someone else posts "THIS IS WHY AND HOW TO FIX" yay
