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.

Didn't the city bg change when you get out to the balcony? If it changes every time you wake up, then you may have a point on the 1 dream = 1 night thing. That doesn't assure you find an effect every night though.
And also, we don't know how long she's been in her room, the game could have started at day 0 just as much as it could be things happening after 2 years of that lifestyle, or just her last days before the ending.

I personally think it doesn't take that long. 1 month, 2 at most.

A question, or just thought, that I have always had about Mado is if she was in the room for quite long periods of time, days at least, then how was she not dehydrating/starving or having to use the bathroom? (Of course I like to pretend she does it when we leave, because then she is truly alone again…) But personally I believe that the time span is really based upon how many times you wake up in game and go through the day/night cycles.

I like the idea that it takes place over several weeks.
I'd feel kind of disappointed if the whole game was meant to take place all in one night.
>Of course I like to pretend she does it when we leave, because then she is truly alone again…
Yeah, that's what I think.
Maybe she lives with her parents (dropout, just graduated Japanese-equivalent of HS, vacation etc.), and just doesn't go out of her room during times in which she knows they'll cross paths. I.e. whenever the game is loaded.

Nice theory, that is practically the same way I think of it too. I tend to think of her as a 15/16 year old dropout (if that is possible in Japan, I know it is here in Murica at least…) and that she lives with someone, but they either rarely check in on her due to buisseness or neglect. Of course there are probably reasons to why she killed herself, so to me the game ending in one night feels to short too.
