Now I'm imagining an alternate timeline where KIKIYAMA didn't play Earthbound, but did play a Build-engine game, like maybe Blood, so YN ended up being 3D with, like, voxel playermodels and stuff. Really heavy reliance on room-over-room shenanigans and, like, doors that load you somewhere else.

What should be done about the current zoomer problem this fandom has? It's either full of fatalists who live off by their synthetic drugs, or ironic fans who laugh at others who look too deeply into things. Both love making shitty memes either way
Nowadays it's hard finding fans who actually love the game for what it is, and are also not hinged by what they do in their everyday life and their beliefs. Anyone else here still has a soft spot for YN, even if you haven't played it in forever?

This folder dates back to February and I decided that I'd better share it rather than keep it to myself. Of course, using a wayback machine you can look at the website as it stood back than, so this collection is kind of redundant, but I thought it would be useful anyways. Enjoy!

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.
R: 2 / I: 0
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

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?

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?

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.

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.
What do you think of it?
R: 3 / I: 1


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.

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

I Love Yume Nikki

Yume Nikki, o Yume Nikki, I love thee, your delicate heart of opaline glass, your body parts like a reliquary. You stimulate me like few others could, I remember standing there, your cum on your stomach, as clear and transparent as our narrow silk bridge of saliva when we connect lips. Yume Nikki is a very divine blessing, Kikiyama is an Angel from Heaven, God told me so in my dreams. I sleep now, next to thee heavenly Yume Nikki, forever… ??

R: 9 / I: 4
When you were first playing the game, what did you think it was about?

I honestly remember thinking that there was a morality system in the game. What I mean is, I thought that by killing more NPCs with the knife effect, Madotsuki would have eventually fell into some kind of dream that you couldn't wake up from. Then, I thought that the only way to rid yourself of your sins was to use the yen that you got for killing NPCs at a vending machine.

I genuinely thought that. Then, a couple hours later, I realized that nothing was happening, so I just stopped thinking that there was a morality system.

Anyone else have any other experience like this? I'd love to hear it if so.

R: 32 / I: 5
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.

Yume Nikki: Dream Diary

Hey, it's kinda strange there's no thread for the NEW YUME NIKKI GAME?! (or the Steam release of the original)

Here's a link to the countdown site for the new project:

I wonder if that's when the new game release? Or will we just get teased with another trailer or something? Also the name game is being published by Playism, cool! I hope the creator can make some money.

And here is the extended trailer for the new project! Crazy looking stuff, very excited. We're very lucky to get another game after so many years… hopefully this site can continue to live too.

I guess the new project is called "Yume Nikki: Dream Diary" which is obviously interesting because the subtitle is just the English title. I guess this could be in part to recognize the game's fan-base in English speaking countries, and makes it clear the new title will be marketed to us too.

Yume Nikki's popularity in Japan

To us western fans it may seem strange to see YN returning after all this time.

But… was it really forgotten about in Japan?

As you may know, Yume Nikki is one of - if not the - most iconic RPG Maker Games ever created. And it lives on in fans' and artists' hearts. Fanworks have been created ever since. Not as many as there are those based on hyped shows and games, but quite a lot compared to other RPG Maker Games at least.

Speaking of other RPG Maker Games, there is quite a huge fanbase of them in Japan.
Events by and for fans and circles have been held; "Try&Re:save" in 2015 and "Try&Re:save2.0" in 2017; "Freedom Game" 1-7 with the first one in 2016. And a Yume Nikki-specific event called "Mars Picnic" in 2014. The only other game with an event dedicated to it solely is Ib with "Rose of Museum".

The dimensions of these events compared to Comiket and others are unknown to me, but there sure had to be quite a lot of people attending them so the organizers see it's safe to plan a next one.

Yume Nikki is definitely one of the best-known RPG Maker Games within Japan, along with Ib and Gokuto Jihen, and the newer games Satsuriku no Tenshi and Higyaku no Noel.

The game with the most Doujinshis (~500) is obviously Gokuto Jihen with it's male-only cast; resulting in a huge percentage of 18+ Yaoi, which is quite popular for some reason. The second place takes Ib with circa 300. On the third place is Yume Nikki with circa 100.

It's quite obvious to see these three of all on the top, given the amount of qualitative original content to heat up the creativity.

Since there are always Yume Nikki-centered doujin circles at Comiket as well, it would be possible that KADOKAWA picked up the idea for the new project from there.

Project Yumenikki is, as far as I know, a kind of doujin circle as well, a group of fans, so to say, just for some reason more official.

I just wanted to share that information with you, since I remember someone was wondering about it and I think it's quite interesting to know.

Is YN still good? Was it ever?

All of this hoopla surrounding the steam release and the countdown and spin offs and what has got me thinking. Can anyone enjoy this game anymore? It was really enjoyable when we first played it, finding all the neat little hidden events, the discovery of Steve 'Leif' Kareha and Mars Junior, and many other little things, and the copious amounts of theories and theorizing that we went over and over.

But it's such an old game, and one that might not of aged really well in my opinion. It's so old, I feel like we've discussed everything about it. Absolutely everything that could be said has already been said and there's nothing more to say. Everything has been talked to death, even the smallest of details has been scrutinized and amounted to nothing in the end. As always, we're still left in the dark about the game's story. According to a dubious interview with Kikiyama there WAS no story. All it was was an experiment in RPG Maker and nothing more. Even if there's no proof that the game's author said this, I feel inclined to believe it at this point. Even if it does have some sort of hidden meaning, we've undoubtedly talked it over and over at some point in the past. Now the only reason we cling to it is because of nostalgia, to try and remember all the feelings it envoked when we first played it.

Will a new audience enjoy it? I'd say, probably not. Like I said, there's no more discussion. There's nothing new we can talk about. And all sorts of games have been released since then, which greatly surpass YN in terms of just about everything. Even it's own fangames are better, whether it's .flow and it's more complex story, or Yume 2kki and it's hugeness and beauty. We created them for our nostalgia as well, to, again, try and evoke those same feelings. This cannot be done by simply playing the game again. Once is the only time you get. Once you see everything, there's nothing else left.

Those nostalgic feelings are being preyed upon, as most games are doing nowadays, by Kikiyama or Kadokawa or whoever. To sell crappy merch for a 20 year old game. A game with no story. A tabula rasa. It's so fucking easy for them to bribe people with a keychain of their favorite 'character', who never talks nor does anything really, or a paid for explanation in the form of a shitty manga (and was that ever actually finished?), and an album of Vocaloid songs. This time will likely be no different. It's a publicity stunt to drum up interest in a long dead game. Even if it is an update or a sequel, will it be good? Will it be necessary? What will come of it, besides the selling of more toys and comics? Maybe even a collectable card game? Or amiibos? Whatever 'art' YN was was nonexistence in the first place or has sense been traded away for ca$h. There's nothing to love anymore. This was it's destiny though, if it wasn't created for any real reason and just by a broke guy in his spare time. Now it's lining his pockets. Soon it'll be no different than FNAF. I guess that's good for him though. He's finally found a 'point' to it. YN was dead on arrival, or died with Madotsuki. Now they're just kicking it.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a balcony to jump off of.
R: 2 / I: 1

New theories and thoughts

So if by any small chance kikiyama is involved in this new project, this may be the last chance to share some new theories, and even if not, it's still a good idea.

I will go with a few of my thoughts, without the typical theories that bore me because they're too obvious.

What's in common between things like ufos, ancient ruins, stories about ghosts and creatures in the sewers and dark places, urban legends, in Japan also Yuki-onna etc? Yep, those tv programs that always use the things, Madotsuki could possibly like those and enjoy watching them.

Lucid dreams
I used to write "yume nikki" on the title of my diary of lucid dreams (where I wrote the experience, technical mistakes I made during them, and plans for next time - the usual in the best method I use, can describe it in /yume/ if anyone's interested) so that nobody figures out what the notebook is, and then I find out there's a game with the name. Fiction with dream/lucid dream theme is rare so I started it, and was actually surprised it shows some lucid dream mechanics well - for example the room in the lucid dream is the same with minor changes, or it reflects the past state of the room (in which case Madotsuki bought the console recently). And a lot of Effects are things one actually tries in a lucid dream - dividing consciousness into more thanone body, flying, influencing reality/weather, changing appearance and the list can go on, including poop hair - making realistic smells appear (the reality of the perception really impresses and shocks beginners in lucid dreming). And lucid dream doesn't always mean full control of the space around you - Madotsuki can simply not know how to do it, and thinking it should be stable like it is, and using effects may be a new "rule" she came up to actually make some changes possible. And of course you can only pinch your cheek to wake up if you actually know it's a dream.

UBOA with the perspective of lucid dreaming
When Madotsuki with not perfect control of lucid dream space wants to see a concrete person - Poniko, while not being calm and believing it's possible, narurally gets an unserponsive to anything person. And if Madotsuki came all the way to Poniko's room to find out the answer to "how will you react if I actually come to your room and turn off the light there?" - which suggests that Madotsuki likes Poniko but is afraid to see her reaction (no matter positive or negative, will she be sad, laugh at her or something else) she gets nothing because she doesn't believe she can get an answer in the dream world, and is projecting her fears and expectations to Poniko which assures she keeps not reacting or in the worst case, the fears materialize in some abstract way. And I am not making things up, speaking here as a lucid dreamer with experience.

Similarities between Poniko room & Mado room.

Just noting that the furniture in Poniko's room is identical to Mado's dream room (Dream room has no famicom, sorry, couldn't take screenshots for some reason, had to use images from wiki, wiki only had the real world room, not dream room), except from one thing: Poniko's closet. Now, having a closet
is (obviously) significant, because of closet Madotsuki. Perhaps indicating that Poniko is also just as 'closeted' as Mado.

Random, useless glitches

Im sharing some useless glitchess I found whle fucking about with the chair, you should join in.

Using the at and scarf effect on the chair while its snowing will allow you to go normal speed with the snowman. Sometimes on entering a room mado will be sitting down. Sometimes trying to torn back into hat and scarf mado will cause her to fall asleep on the floor.

Doing this with the midget lets big mado sit and pop little mados from her head. You can keep doing this indefinetly, but only p to five little mados will actually appear. You cant move little mado after pressing 1 the first time.

Using the severed head effect on the chair will actually make Madotsuki move slower.

If you use nopperabou on the chair and sit on the floor tou will stand up facing the opposite direction.The same will happen with the cat, but there wil be a frame where the cat effect is noticable.

Sitting after using the knife effect on the chair will make you sit for a second, then stand 90 degrees anticlockwise (you still have to press 1 to move again).

Lastly, equipping flute on the chair will make flute music play when mado sits and stands.

The situation of Yume Nikki & FG

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.

The steam for this train is running out, and i'm afraid our secret society has been overshadowed by pretentious "meme games" such as Undertale who didn't have the finesse and the life-changing experience YN had.

Ubuu has been way more active than the past days though, most of the /fg/ and YN-related boards are dying off.

So again, i ask all of you my kind:
What do you think of our current situation?
How are we going to survive?

Mono sisters/Masada idea?

So,I was talking with my girlfriend about Yume Nikki and we started mention theories. I'm not sure if someone has already came up with this. But we think it's possible that Monoko could possibly be raped and her hands resemble the rapists hands. Someone maybe grabbed her head and they could have pulled her arms back so she won't be able to move, maybe even broke her arms. we had an idea that Masada was madotsuki/monoko/monoe and the other's teacher, and he took great care of them. He might have died and that the spaceship could be something to take him to the after life. The reason why Monoe is smiling all the time could be because she is depressed or trying to hide some sort of pain, as "smile the pain away". Maybe she saw Monoko (and possibly Madotsuki as well) being rapped and was forced to watch and smile.

Yume Nikki Music copyright issues

Has this ever happened to anyone else?
R: 7 / I: 2
I often see the common complaint that Yume Nikki is "so slow" but right when you get the bike it cuts down on like half the walking speed. To me it makes me feel like they didn't want to get to know the game because its boring or they don't like the concept or it makes them uncomfortable or whatever. Sort of like evangelion's "2deep4u" bull. Do you think that people would actually play it if your walking speed was increased or had a bike from the beginning or do you agree with me?

What do you think is the best music or "single loop" really? I honestly love the opening music for yume nikki. It captures that sense of mystery for me and is relaxing and gentle. I sort of wish there was more of the song to enjoy though.

Second time playing YN (the first was five years ago and I drop it for some reason) and now I understand all the fuss about. It's a really immersive game, but I'm thinking if it is needed to play until the end. I already understood that she is a Hikkikomori and suffered abuses in the past, what more can be added in the experience? Sadly, this is te bad point in these "art games": there's no real reason to keep playing. It's just a experience, like go to the expo and see paintings.
R: 4 / I: 2
What do you think the time span of yume nikki is? How much time does she spend awake and how much time does she spend asleep? Lets say that every time mado gets an egg, a night or so passes by. There are 25 eggs in YN so that means less than a month. There are also special events that happen that make her wake up or are significant, which all take up a night. So in total she would have only been a NEET a month. Also I'm assuming the time she spends awake is minimal besides recording her progress in the notebook and playing vidya or look at sky outside. Unless she did it all in one night not counting the special events.

Glitches in Yume Nikki?

I'll post all the ones I know of.

Speed Glitch: Use bike in the chair while asleep

Double Speed Glitch : Use bike in chair, then take chair out to nexus. Press 5 to drop effect. Equip bike again then go back to desk and exit chair at the desk.

Use effects with speed glitch: Equip Yukki-Onna in chair, then hat and scarf. Take the chair and activate the hat and scarf effect. Then equip desired effect and put chair back and exit chair.

Walk through walls: Use knife in chair. Leave chair and immediately after activate the knife effect.

Softlock game on rocket ship: while the ship is crashing hold down sit and you will not be able to get back up or do anything.

There are a few other very minor glitches but those are the most noticeable and useful ones.

Anyone else know any other glitches?

Has playing Yume Nikki given you any new information or a new perspective as life as a hikikomori? What do you think the author was saying about hikikomori lifestyle as a whole? For me as someone who spent about six months playing vidya and sleeping only rarely going out of my room to eat and sometimes talk to my family. I feel as though kikiyama attitude towards hikikomori seems pretty destructive and cynical. Im posting here because I'm not sure if the NEET board is alive anymore but feel free to move me there.

Southern Lucia Expedition

I found a new way to solve some puzzling, roundabout theories from all over the Yume Nikki universe by whipping up a map representing the southern half of Lucia after I done with the northern half. Since Northern Lucia is a bustling, urbanized half, I go with a southern, rural counterpart with least population density with familiar exotic climates only the most imaginative of dreamers can go there. The southern half is the more peaceful side of the planet than to the north with less monsters but also not too many inhabitants, making it a popular tourist attraction for new dreamers for testing their abilities and safe exploration. It is the only side of the planet with no cities, a bunch of small communities, and a few ghost towns.

Yep, my dream planet has its own White Desert, just seceded from the main continent to become its own country, but I have no name of what country they would call, so that spawns another obstacle. At least the Monochrome people are happy with their new given land from the matriarch of the same name from Rewrite series, because I accidentally chose the name of the planet after her, taking me back long before her series came out.

She is okay with the new short-term independence with their new kingdom, but once she gets the final word if the Lucians win against Chasers in the northern frontier, she will have to take it back by force, and that will spur a revolution. Further south, two new continents: Icira, bordering mainland Thycia to the north, and Ginera at the equator is the middle ground that is mostly desert with New Egypt and Pink Sea to the west. East of it, you end up in Red Sun Mountains with Drifting Sea to the east for a subtropical feel.

A new approach in getting to Pink Sea for anyone with a fear of teleportation is there is a subtle change in water temperature, color, and a change in the sky when sailing or flying over to make the planet look more alien-like down there than if you are living in the northern frontier. For the tropical-based protagonists, I added some islands around that might help.

If you are able to help further with more interpretations or dream experiences you have, feel free. This side of the planet is completely untranslated, because I did not yet have a chance to explore there myself.

Trivia: My planet just completed 85 orbits in exactly 17 Earth years to honor the release date of RPG Maker 2000.

C90 Yumenikki CD [Reverberation Of Dreams]

Hello, every nikki fans. I've seen your discussion about otonikki long time ago.And this time we release a new yumenikki doujin cd called [Reverberation Of Dreams]


And I can send ems to other countries, you could pay me by paypal. But the shipping fee maybe a little high(15dollars first500g). In my opinion, you can buy multiple cds in a time.

Of course, otonikki is still in stock.
If you buy otonikki and new cd at the same time(or just two pieces new cd),I'll give you cd as present containg 7tracks about instrument and special version.

A Yume Nikki movie

Hello dear Ubuu. I'm considering making a live action low-budget Yume Nikki movie. Haven't decided yet if it'll be a short or feature-length, or what worlds/areas to omit, or what the details of the story will be. I'm curious about what you guys/girls/squirrelkin think: good/bad idea, potential legal troubles since no one can ask Kikiyama for permission, what should stay, what should go, what the effects should be like (the token idea from the comic seems doable), what you'd like to see in such a production, whether or not you think dropping a crossover from something else is a good idea, etc.

I'm really just gathering my thoughts on the concept and who better to ask than fellow fans of the ganme? I do think that I'd like it to have little to no dialogue just like the game, very much "show don't tell." Also, has anyone talked about this anywhere before?

Can't wait to see what comes from this. Thanks in advance, everyone :-)

I think finally understand Yume Nikki now. I'm not saying I'm the absolute-est right, I just wanted to share this with you. Just a ramble. Sorry for my English.

It's been perhaps over 10 years since it came out now. I discovered it… 4-5 years ago, I think. It scared the hell out of me, it made me cry, but it also made me interest; I was obssessed with it (like most of my interests), kept researching it, theorizing it, everything.
For a while, I let go. It's always been in my heart - when someone refers "Yume Nikki" it's like, ah, that nostalgic feeling.

But it's only in the past few years, and most intensely now, that I understand Yume Nikki. Perhaps I'm feeling just like a special snowflake. Perhaps I'm finally going insane. I don't know. It doesn't matter right now, this isn't about me.

But hear meowt, and forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong place, or forgive me for posting at all.

Will post in parts.

Alright, so way back in 2012, I frequented here a lot, looking at all the fanart because I was too much of a pussy to play the actual game. I rediscovered both the game and this place again, games a blast, but this place seemed to change a bit. I remember there being boards for Mado, Poniko, and Masada, and from the looks of it, there still are. But how do you access them besides knowing the address? I could have sworn there was a board for the desert twins too.

Unused Game Files

So i've never used a forum before and i'm probably already doing 200 things wrong but i've found something weird, and as far as i know, no one has talked about this yet.

When i was just mindlessly wandering the files on my computer like a complete idiot about an hour ago, i ran into the Yume Nikki folder and decided to look through it for some reason. I was surprised to find about 90 percent of the files i opened weren't from Yume Nikki, they appear to be from some RPG like game. There's music files, sprites, backgrounds, soundeffects…
My question is: has anyone done some research on these files? If so, what are they from? my first guess was that they were just unused material, but there's so many files, and the unknown RPG is not at all like Yume Nikki.

I took a screenshot of a file named 'monster'.

Yume Nikki Speed Run

Yume Nikki is easily my favorite RPG Maker title of all time, I've decided to further my obsession by learning how to speed run it.

I've just achieved a new PB: 17:40.


This run was great, at least for my current skill level. Unfortunately the Darkness and The Wilderness costed me ridiculous amounts of time. I'll do better next run.

To those who are new to my runs, when I stop for a couple of seconds for no 'obvious' reason, it's because I'm taking a look at my notes. The video quality will also be improved for my next Speed Run recording.

My dream is to reach the top 9 in the leaderboards: http://www.speedrun.com/yumenikki#Any%25

Witch event background

Hey there,

I stumbled across this tweet several days ago: https://twitter.com/BENIBEKO/status/306430906053312513

It's about the background in the witch event. I can't really read Japanese but it seems he found the source of the picture of background. However, I'm not really sure, if these images really fit. Maybe on the image from the game, the photographer was closer to the mountain chain. What do you think? Do you know anything about that?

It's just, that I really love the rooftop and the witch event. The background and OSTs of both are just really beautiful.

Best way to experience YN?

So, I normally play YN and its fangames for the exploration and the effects. I love just wandering around and seeing all the neat things I can find.

I have to wonder if I'm missing something, though. I feel like I could be getting more out of it. I find myself just rushing through areas to get to the next ones and find the other effects.

Do you guys ever just walk around and take in the scenery? No bike or anything? Does it feel more fulfilling than collecting everything?

I hope this makes sense. I'm sorry if it doesn't. I just know there's something special about these games and I want to be able to appreciate them.

Places that remind you of YN

What YN-esque places have you visited in person?

My city has miles of shallow, open-air drainage channels. They're usually dry and easy enough to access from the road.
The feeling of trudging down them, with an eternally blue sky above and mountains looming in the distance, reminds me of those endlessly scrolling hub worlds the doors pop you out onto.

At certain places along the path, there are narrow, winding culverts that seem to be leading far away from the channels themselves. They're always lined with colorful graffiti near the mouths, which thins out a bit once you get deeper inside. The last time my friend and I went into a new culvert, we forgot to bring flashlights, so we didn't venture too far. I saw something pale peeking around a darkened bend at us, though. Stoplight effect woulda come in handy!
