Uboa Meaning?

As a newer YN Fan, Uboa is confusing. I know it is one of the most popular events in-game, but I’m confused on the symbolism. Mado crying in the closet is probably dysphoria, and Shitai-san is probably car-related trauma, but what is Uboa?

The creator himself said he confirmed that he does not have it, apart from that, according to what a Spanish-speaking commentator sent, the following is known:

Greetings, to add.
There is a Japanese mugen database that has the following referenced about madotsuki
In the threads that are archived from 4 ch to n on the video game board. There are several anons who mention that they have found strange characters (they demonstrate this with a webm or by posting the links if they are asked) and mentioning that they find them by searching purely in Japanese.
Searching as mugen+[character name in Japanese] on niconicoduoga was also mentioned. But in this case it won't work because of what was mentioned in your video.
I can think of several ways to find the character
IBS (f u t u b a chan, where the mugen full game Nijikaku came out) and Japanese forums (the latter focused on mugen)
Users who commented on eiten's madotsuki video
Other people you interact with on your social networks about mugen
It could also be that it is uploaded on b a i d u, I think the b a i d u search engine no longer works but you need to check.

The IBS options will need to speak Japanese and in forums it is likely yes or no like niconicoduoga users or people related to mugen with eiten.
I hope you have new information about madotsuki.
P.S. Youtube gave me a lot of trouble posting this.

Going in blind-ish

Hey guys

Found this game through some TKMIZ art and thought it would be worth giving a try.

I get the vibe that this game is best played by going in blind, but I always have more trouble than most when doing so.

Without giving too much away, is there a recommended way to play the game or a certain mindset needed to play this? Any advice for someone new who wants to try this out?

Thanks anons

Yume Nikki Scanlations Project

Originally suggested some time ago, the idea has finally come true and is official now.

Uboachan is currently and actively working on the translation of Manga, Doujinshi and other fanworks related to Yume Nikki. The group behind the translations is Patchy Illusion Team. For those who don't know, we were originally a group oriented to game making/help. The team was disbanded, however, and I decided to take the reins and use it for this project. The name may ring a bell in some users.

We decided to create an all-purpose thread where we will publish new releases, post announcements, answer questions from the users and take suggestions. If you have something to say, this is the right place.

That being said, here's our first announcement: We are currently in the need of more people. If you want to give a hand, please, make sure to check the about page in our site and see what would you like to apply for:


You may also post in the thread, or send me a mail (hover over my name in the post).

More hands working on this means faster and better translations. This is a work done by the users for the users. And, as much as we all would love to translate manga as fast as possible, it is a rather time-consuming process prone to error. We're all human and we need to use our time for other things, such as work and/or college, or other people pointing out what we did wrong.

Please, notice no prior experience in any of these fields is needed at all. I personally don't have any problems with teaching people how to use gimp and what's the difference between a good and bad translation. Ultimately, we're doing this for our own enjoyment out of our own free will, so don't feel discouraged to give it a try if you want to participate. We don't bite.

Many of us have always felt a special connection with Yume Nikki, and it has even changed the lives of a few people (uboachan is a big proof of this). There's still a lot of unknown material ready to be discovered. I hope we can manage to make it available for everybody through our translations, and to spread the love for Yume Nikki.

im really feeling weird atm

i can't make my mind up about anything

and i've been playing yume nikki on steam

but reading the reviews…….

god dammit

i just get so pissed off????

like so many people come to yume nikki from omori, which is fair enough ig, but whenever the two are compared, it just pisses me off so much

i dont want my favourite game to be compared to your white girl depression fetish rpg


god anons im so tired

of being mean

n having strong opinions

my sister got me the madotsuki plush for my birthday, which is coming up soon

but the thought is weirdly stressful

like, what if i don't appreciate it enough? what if i dont like it?

i nearly freaked out because of a redundant colour on madotsuki's sprite

maybe i just have stupid autismo brainrot (likely) thats being amplified by my loneliness and general anger (even more likely)

Need Help Finding Yume Nikki Fanart

I'm making this post because I need help to find older artwork from a Japanese artist known nowadays as Funamusea (Deep-Sea Prisoner) previously known as Okegom. I ask this because it seems a lot of her older artworks have been lost to time and may not be archived as well. I have searched other boorus which do contain older art, but it seems to be reposted artwork from her or incredibly popular artwork. I have also search her own website where she has catalogued tons of artwork, however artwork seen in picrel do not appear.

The picture in question I believe is a screenshot of one of her folders containing older artwork of hers. This was posted to X I believe. If you look closely, you can see a ton of Yume Nikki artwork. However nowadays, she posts OC and commissions.

If anyone does have old artwork saved, please post below or please send links to where older art is archived/posted. Thank you.

drawing conclusions about mado's life based on the dream world

i think theres a lot of interesting speculations that can be made about madotsuki's previous life before the hikki-ing, based on what is prominently displayed in the dream world. as in our dreams, what happens in them is based on our memories, experiences, and mindsets as we go through the real world, which then get chopped and screwed into fun little events or traumatic nightmares. i'll be posting some of my theories below, but id love to hear what you guys think based on your interpretations of the game :)

The Lost madotsuki for mugen

I want to tell you about an anecdote about a not very well known case about a lost content in reference to madotsuki. We all know mugen, a graphics engine for fighting like street fighter, I suppose you have come to download the RoySquadRocks char, which must be the best known, or the LJH one, which is a reference to yn gensou.

But that's not the point, the point is that a long time ago, there were people who had been trying to adapt mado to mugen for a long time, they were people from the Nico Nico douga platform, now called Nico video, who showed their progress through videos. If you search for the word masotsuki in Japanese and putting together the word mugen, there you can find all the videos from those years.

Despite the fact that most failed in the attempt, there was a person who was able to publish a not very well-known version about madotsuki that is now lost, his name was eiten, who was able to publish his version on his Nico video account.


Unfortunately, the download link was removed, due to an accident, no one knows who could have downloaded it since then, since the link was available since 2013, has anyone seen this madotsuki?

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.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBNCgQzRVdg (same video as above)

But while looking for it, I found this other thing:
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:

And this is what I got for the doujin ones:
24 effects (is this even necessary?):

Subliminal (not sure where I got this):

All the others are unavailable (maybe perfect dark would help), and except for Oto Nikki (by Rain Lily White), they are all made by a doujin circle named 火星ピクニック/"Picnic in Mars" (one of the members is Mt. Kiki, the guy that was editing our wiki not that long ago).

So, anyone willing to join me on my search for these?

Mother Mado

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.

Yume Nikki is a rorschach test

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.

KIkiyama is Hiroko Nishikawa

Hiroko 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.

Need help finding a specific fan video

Hi, 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.)

The link to it is dead though, and they didn't put the actual title of it either. If anyone knows what video they're talking about and can link it, that'd be great, because Yume Nikki and SZS are basically my two favorite things ever.

Audience think I want to commit suicide

Hi, 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.


Funny thing is, most of my viewers don't know about the ending so they think I really wanted to commit suicide xD or I felt too bad about it that I want that as an option.

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.
Since YN, honestly, has its issues I am trying to figure out how to evade these issues. I am not here to roast YN or something, I am looking for design changes, that make the game easier to play, especially for people who dont know anything about the it (pic related).

Here's the most common issues i hear about and there is only one rule to go by: If there is no good design-excuse for it, cut it.

- Too much empty space. I would probably design more smaller worlds and reduce unneccecary walking. tedious looping is not fun. The map sizes need to be drastically reduced.
- Pointless effects. I would either implement some use for the effects given or get rid of the ones that only have a cosmetic purpose. There are 4 really useful effects. others are either completely pointless or they are useful like 1 time an then never again (Yukki Onna, Witch and Umbrella for example)
-Knife is good, would keep. Eye Palm is useful. I would remove the bike and just add a run-button. Stop-Light needs balancing, i would make it so that the npcs unfreeze automatically after a few secs to make it harder to escape the toriningen. The cat is kind of useful. Every other effect is of practically no use and can be removed.
-As a new player, you cannot get anywhere without the assistance of walkthroughs, wikis or youtube. That's just terrible game design and the tiniest amount of guidance would be much appreciated. However i have not yet found a way to get around this. There are no compasses or maps in dreams, really. So idk, let me know if you got any ideas.

Anything else you would change to improve the game? My goal is to make it more accessible to new players and to make exploration more rewarding.

Yume Nikki Browser

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!

First Thoughts Thread

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 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

Possible source of inspiration

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

R: 12 / I: 7
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.

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 game

is there any word for how this game makes me feel?
i feel lost in something bigger than what is conceivable. i used to be a diver. being upside down underwater is comparable. so is breathing there. just looking into the far reaches of the ocean while you're submerged, knowing that you really shouldn't be able to. but for some reason you are.
my stomach feels cold and petrified. a sensation that's crawling up my oesophagus up to my throat. it's not restrictive, it's not scary. it's just a gut instinct telling me something isn't right.
i think about being different. my mind wanders.
explores subject matter very different from the game which somehow still feels connected.
loneliness but comfort in solitude.
being lost in an ocean of ink.
at a certain point you just lose track of which way is up.

i can't really put my feelings into words and instead tend to write down abstract thoughts and concepts instead. can anyone relate?

Missing Yume-Products

Whatever happened to the mobile version of NASU?
It got pulled down from the Android store a long while ago. Is it just lost now?

Did you know there was a semi-official thing done with Visual Novel Maker? It realised only in Japan. I remember seeing it once in Nico-Nico Video, but I haven't been able to find info about it.

What about the stuff made by Surfer's Paradise for the YumenikkiProject?
We have the very small thumbnails, 1 or 2 pics of the machines that had some of those things, and maybe a couple of the shirts and the keychains (normally with huge watermarks on them). Are there not good pics fo them?

The rulers and pens and pins… are they all just gone? No pics of them?

Has someone ripped (would that be the word?) the LINE stickers?

Yume nikki theory:

that guy murdered in the forest is yume nikki's significant other/father/parental figure who died in some sort of ambush with nikki. She survived, but was raped. What's interesting about this location is that it feels distinctively grounded in reality vs the other areas which are often times more abstract. Along with all of the other imagery, like the uterus(s) on the road, and the hands & eyes scattered throughout the entire game, I feel that the most likely reason we come across yume nikki as a complete shut in is because of the trauma associated with rape, combined with losing a significant other.

Murder is a theme throughout Nikki's dreams, she can use a knife to kill almost any NPC character. She can afford to be a complete shut in because of the leftover money from whichever significant other that was murdered in the ambush she was raped in. Nikki literally kills herself at the end of the game, something really terrible (sometimes psychological problems but in this case I don't think that theme aligns with Nikki's dreams) pushed her to taking this action. I believe that terrible thing is the ambush and associated rape.

I'm really ADHD so my thoughts are super disorganized here, this was pretty low effort anyways but sometimes I think my writing is frustrating to read. What do you guys think about my theory, I literally just started playing this game today and am connecting dots. I don't really have a huge ego about a lot of things but I am really good at reading comprehension and interpreting art I scored perfectly in that subject on my SATS, so idk I could just be a complete fucking idiot though im probably wrong and havent seen enough of the game.

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.

I recently decided to go back through Yume Nikki and revisit the places that really struck a chord with me. Took a bunch of screenshots like I was on some nostalgic road trip or something.

Things that Remind You of YN

Possibly wrong section but I can't for the life of me think where else this would go other than maybe Vomitive Shithole

Anyone ever seen Cirque du Soleil's "Quidam"? It's kind of up to interpretation, but it's basically about a girl getting bored with her life and exploring her imagination.

Full show here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LjuEbO643k
