Any moon nerds online?
are you kikiyama ?
>Hello, I'm kikiyama.
>I'm sorry but I don't know english very well, so I will write in japanese.
>I'm really happy people overseas have enjoyed yume nikki.
>I've received a lot of mail in the past, but I didn't have the courage to reply due to the language barrier.
>There seems to be a big argument on the internet right now.
>If you have any questions, I'll definitely reply them here as long as they're not about personal information.
I don't know if it's really kikiyama, but at the very least he's writing in keigo (something hard unless you really know japanese), so this wasn't done with google translator.
Is v0.10 the finished version of yume nikki?
How we know you are the real kikiyama ?
If you're really Kikiyama send an email from the email we all know to firstname.lastname@example.org
What is that image?
Can a mod check where OP is posting from please?
Will you update your website soon?
This, update the website to settle this once and for all.
If this is fake I still really like the OP image, good work.
Have you played any of the Fangames?
where have you been?
are you male or female?
>>7517 >Do you like Hot Dogs?
"No personal questions"
>Nothing but personal questions
Why did it take so long for a new version to come out?
What do you think of the Yume 2kki fangame?
How involved were you in the new Dream Diary game?
Do you have any early concept art,or other unreleased stuff you can show us?
I'm glad you're not dead, you got me worried
How do you think to create Yume Nikki? and
In the end of the game you can see blood and two jellyfish but you can´t see Madotsuki,she or he is really dead?
(I don´t speak English very well sorry)
How did you find this site? This site being Uboachan, of course.
What? I just googled to check and the email on Kiki's website IS email@example.com
If this is really please DO NOT explain anything about the game no matter how much people beg.
dont spoil me the game ending! wtf!
How old is madotsuki. Im a huge fan, thank you so much for yume nikki.
Hello, I'm a very big fan of Yume Nikki. Thank you very much for making such an amazing game. It has affected me in many ways and inspired me a lot through my life. Seriously, thank you.
Kikiyama's email is firstname.lastname@example.org according to he website, the email is correct.
From readme ★作者メールアドレス email@example.com
Can you post a clearer picture with date or something. This looks a bit sketchy
Favorite Yume Nikki World?
Could you please press "Show original" button and show lines with "spf" in them if there are some (there should be).
Hi im a real Kikiyama and Modotuski is leasbian
duuuh, we're ALL lesbians.
What should we expect from the new game?
why's gimp open ;)
Thank you so much for creating this little masterpiece, Kikiyama. Your project means so much to me, and so many people around the world. Greetings from the Spanish Comunity. ^-^
What even is that browser? It sure ain't Firefox, that's for sure.
I don't think it's appropriate to display Kikiyama's IP, I'd rather ask a mod where OP IP is from.
Eloy te amo :v
thank you for creating this lovely game. it has gotten me through tough times.
Thank you very much for coming here!
If I may ask, how much involvement did you have in this new Yume Nikki: Dream Diary game?
If you worked on it, I'd be even more excited for it!
what kind of software did you make the music for the game in?
It doesn't display the sender IP (you can't know it through e-mail), only SMTP server IP.
I'm not that anon, but that browser is Vivaldi. It's basically Chrome with more customization.
Is the manga cannon?
kiki probably used fl studio or some kind of midi tracker/sequencer. but for the exact vst/plugin or soundfont im not sure.
I want to believe…
If you could add or change anything about the original game, what would you do?
Please update your site. The lack of an update to the site has made us all worried for years… An update to your site would prove that you're real, I think.
Kikiyama, I love Yume Nikki. It's an amazing game. Thank you, Kikiyama. Thank you for such an amazing game.
I do have one question, though.
What was your biggest inspiration for the game?
Thank you very much for making a game that I and many others enjoyed and that influenced me and my game making.
You have been an inspiration for me since I was 12 years old. I'm currently 19 and started working on my game as a love letter to yume nikki in october. Thank you for creating such a fantastic experience, my game is a love letter to yume nikki and this is my love letter to you. I cant thank you enough.
Thank you so much, if you are really real. If not, good joke.
窓付き キャラデザ ?
Do you have concept art of Madotsuki?
>>7577>Do you have concept art of Madotsuki?
Any concept art would be really nice to see, not just Madotsuki
Is it really happening?
Which area in the game is your favorite?
SPF is just a method to verify the E-mail is not fake. You can't extract personal information from an E-mail.
If >>7546 still isn't confident enough about it, he could blur all IPs. Just show that "spf=pass".
You are the best indie developer of all time!!
A lot of games, like Undertale, the YN fangames, etc… took many things from your game, it's timeless! I'm happy to see you again in the internet, this is the best way to start a year!
It's so weird to know that the real kikiyama might be reading this. =P
According to my limited knowledge, in summary, he's saying that he's real, there will be an update in the future, he understands that people are suspicious of the thread's legitimacy, and that the threadpic is of an area he's working on. Did I get that right?
I want to thank you because Yume Nikki inspired me to become a game designer. I've made games inspired by Yume Nikki before.
My Japanese isn't great so I apologize in advance for any minor translation errors.
We are planning to continue.
An incomplete map.
Kikiyama, does the new game follow your creative vision? This question is important to a lot of us.
>azraelmorton .. BUSTED!
If you really are kikiyama
Thank you so much for making this game. It's become an important part of my life.
Also how tall is madotsuki?
You already managed to mess up your name and quotes, how did you manage to slip up this badly.
Can you post a word (eg: DONUT) on your site to prove that you are the real Kikiyama?
How much involvement did you have in the new Dream Diary game?
Did you play Yume 2kki or .flow?
What are your thoughts on fangames? Like Yume 2kki and .flow, for example.
File: 1516822897730.jpg (Spoiler Image, 26.44 KB, 374x253, Blank _1c35864952556bded13….jpg)
I'm ecstatic if this isn't a poe. You've inspired me so much, Kiki.
check the e-mail field
Soo this is fake ? :(
No evidence so far to believe that it's fake.
OP and that azrael are two differnt people. That azrael used google to translate, while OP speaks real keigo. So, at the very least OP seems
legit and the other was a troll.
Kikiyama-san, if you are reading this, I just want to say "thank you", thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your game changed my life and my art, and inspired me to make my own games. I do not know you, but I am glad to know a part of you through your creation.
ききやまさん、あなたがこれを読んでいるならば、私はちょうど "ありがとう"と言いたい、私の心の底からありがとう。 あなたのゲームは私の人生と私の芸術を変え、私自身のゲームを作るよう促しました。 私はあなたを知らないが、あなたの創造を通してあなたの一部を知ってうれしい。
I do not speak Japanese, so I hope you can understand the translation.
Question: what was your number one inspiration?
The format is completely different from OP's post, and no one in this site writes their email in the email field, it's just some faggot trying hard to debunk OP.
Ask a mod. Also kikiyama got dubs.
Do not do stupid things here please, do not be rude
Someone ask him what did he use to make the game's music please
Did you know of the PlayStation1 game titled "LSD: Dream Emulator"? If so, did it have any influence on Yume Nikki?
Can a mod please confirm OP's location?
Kikiyama, I don't speak Japanese, so I used Google Translate to ask this. I hope this makes some sense.
(Kikiyama, what is your biggest inspiration for the game?)
Excuse me, Kikiyama, if this is really you, which were your inspirations for creating Yume Nikki?
Thank you a lot for making Yume Nikki and for coming here! It's a remarkable game and if you're indeed planning to add new elements to it, that's simply amazing.
Why did you decide to continue working on Yume Nikki only now, around a decade since you released the last version?
If you feel comfortable giving answers in Japanese to our questions (written in English) please consider responding to the emails you receive in a similar fashion (at least occassionally).
And also, please consider updating your website, as others have asked.
Does it even make sense? I'm not saying OP is fake, it probably is legit, but it's not like Kikiyama is the only Japanese person out there.
SPF on the other hand is a much more solid proof. If >>7546 at least just tells us if SPF is correct even without any screenshots or anything, then if he and OP are two different people, then probability of fake is very very low.
Will he ever come back?
It's 5am in Japan, I think kikiyama went to sleep.
He'll wake up again in 15 years
That is, if it is indeed coming from Japan
Well, in the meantime, can a mod please confirm OP's location?
why would he post here instead of updating his website first?
Or post on 2channel, for that matter.
>>7625>why would he post here instead of updating his website first?
Since they have been updating stuff from project YN since 2013, and now a whole new project without updating the original website, I don't think that is a very valid point right now.
Maybe he lost the access codes or something.
We only know about them posting in that site once, ever, that isn't really a strong point.
Because Kikiyama posting solely on here is a strong point, right?
okay but what about this "new location" screenshot?
It was either fake, or it was real and you all scared Kiki!
Sssh, let me believe.
He's probably just sleeping. He'll be back in a few hours, I'm guessing.
yeah, it's 6:00AM in japan right now
What is the whole deal with all the Aztec stuff in the game?
Could we see concept art of the game?
Do you like Coil (the band)?
そしてありがとう。 私はいつの日か私があなたのようになってもいいことを望む。 より多くの質問に答えなくても、私はあなたの読まれてこれを望み、私達が愛することを知っている。
Hello Kikiyama, will you update the original game soon?
Hey Kikiyama, what's your favouite K-on girl? do you have a waifu?
Hello Kikiyama. I am very happy to hear from you after all this time. I hope you are doing well and taking care of yourself.
I'm translating, but only things Kikiyama replies to.
it's basically a lot of namefags under google translate who don't give two fucks about our community suddenly appearing here and advertising their "love" and "appreciation" for kiki without reading the questions other people already made and posting their games so kiki plays them. Hint: That won't happen.
Not that the shitposting is better, but well. Oh, internet.
Ching chong ping pong
What were your musical influences for Yume Nikki?
yeah not buying it just yet
lmao at the self promotion
Mods, please delete imitator posts and confirm OP's IP country
Hey Kekiyama-san check out my shity fan game that no one gives a fuck.
Holy fuck this
What the fuck is wrong with these people
The real Kikiyama was the friends we made along the way.
thanks for confirming kikiyama isnt real
seems kadokawa is starting to sweat, seeing as they see a need to outright impersonate kikiyama, shit you're worse than project yn
Screenshot looks good
I wanna believe
Please keep your fraud shitposting in /ot/.
Y'all who are self promoing look so dumb
This is not okay, frankly it's a bit disgusting and opportunist, and you posted it twice.
at least one can laugh at shitposts>>7659
Are you gonna confirm some theories that might sound true?
The website went down during 2015 and then it came back like nothing had ever happened on a week or so, I doubt that's the case.
And it wasn't a domain issue, other sites with similar urls were working perfectly at the time.
truth hurts don't it?
Paracas you mean.
A truth you can't prove? No because it doesn't exist, and there are copyright laws, a large group like kadokawa doesn't need to risk themselves for such a niche game.
OKAY WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?!?!?!
and actually we're all KIKIYAMA so technically i could be either a creator of a fangame or not
I am a creator. Am I Kikiyama?
no you aren't you speak english
Здравствуйте. Я Кикияма, создатель Юме Никки
Я буду рад ответить на ваши вопросы (ничего личного пожалуйста).
kikiyama is a cool dude
we don't even know their gender
like it could be a male
Does that really matters at this point?
Заебись смешно. Обоссаться.
because it's prob less likely that a girl would be posting a game anonymously to the internet
and it prob DOES matter at this point because kikiyama is returning from the dead my man
If they didn't want to attract attention to their game for the wrong reasons (controversy, shitty drama, etc), it's very possible a girl would release their work anonymously.
first of all, some girls that made games (ex. nightmargin) released their work publicly, so i doubt it.
Why would Kadokawa be behind something fake? >>7707
Females also account for a rather small percentage of vidya developers.
Kikiyama I love you
kikiyama, do you have any social media sites?
and its very gud
Guys, kikiyama just said in the OP "no personal question", and half the questions in this thread are personal…
everyone he's right, listen to this dude and stop asking him/her/them personal questions, he/she/they probably feel so insecure he/she/them's probably going to do another anonymous action
Did you honestly expect anything else from Ubuu?
kikiyama, is it okay to call you daddy?
My point is that kiki won't reply to things he considers personal, so it's cluttering the thread with stupid things like "whats ur favorite color :D?"
that's just wrong lmao
exactly. almost everyone here is socially inept.>>7710>dem females
Hiya Kiki yama
Also what is your twitter, if that aint too personal? I try to follow my favorite devs on as much things and you are kinda like a ghost in that respect.
Kikiyama is my demisexual aromantic sapiosexual cinnamonroll <333
so, i guess i'll call you a "they" then ;)
If you were the real Kikiyama, would you post on an imageboard with your unshielded home IP address? Obviously not. The IP origin information for OP poster is meaningless and proves nothing, but since everyone is asking I will tell you that it is a Japanese proxy, as one would expect whether or not the poster is for real.
Just stating the facts. Their gender isn't confirmed, but it's considerably more likely that they're a male.
It doesn't matter either way and we'll likely never find out, especially not after over 15 years.
Also, a more pointed question i have is the translation of the firat message mentioned a big argument happening, does anyone know what that is about?
Probably the whole FRAUD 2.0 mess.
The new "official" project
That's not Kikis game
This looks like she's holding a paper lamp, at least.
kikiyama, is the FACE supposed to be a body part?
Oooh is this the same Japanese as the OP? Looks like it.
oops, i meant ^
thank you so much for coming back to this thread and continuing to respond. please excuse us for it being a mess
tbh this whole thing still sounds fake bc some answers are too conventional
あなたのゲームは本当に刺激的だと言いたいと思います。 それは私自身のゲームを作り、自分の人生を変えるように私に影響を与えました。 私は本当に落ち込み、試合をしようとしていました。夢の日記を演奏した後、私はちょうどそのようなことをしなければならないと感じました。 私は "Dreaming Sarah"というゲームを作った。それをチェックしたいのならSteamだ。 ゆめにきを作ってくれてありがとう。
Only was to know for sure its real if he ever updates his website
Cut it out already.
Didn't you learn anything from the last time you shitposting at the speed of light at a dev you liked?
How old are you?
Kiki is probably 30+ yo. I'm sure he can handle some anonymous faggots making dick and UR FAKE jokes.
people are not plugging their games enough
yeah, even though there's a legit phalis that rubs the stairway
There's a difference between being able to handle comments from rampant shitposters and actually wanting to interact with them
im just glad the "mado is a nazi" and "mado has a dik" theories from half a decade ago have dried up like the crops of my frontyard
I agree, but then again you can't expect him to go about saying "yeah this game is shit and that's my favorite", and most of the other questions in this thread are basically "why did you go away", "are you a girl or a boy", etc.>>7756
It's what I've been saying since 2013.
Okay, I'll ask if there ever was any change in the atmosphere of Yume Nikki and if walking around was always the objective from the very first version.
but kiki didnt answered >>7517
Do you still have the previous versions of Yume Nikki? Is it possible for you to re-upload them one day?
Well he don't need to interact with them you dumbfuck.
This dude probably not even real Kiki and y'all just work your asses off for some random fake bitch but whatever
Please update your website, Kikiyama.
Any random thing will suffice.
Chill, what the hell? Why do I have the impression that half of these users aren't even regular posters?
Exactly the sort of jackassery that's killing this site
Funny you say that, because that's standard chan culture. Words can't hurt you, either get a thick skin or go away,
But muh chan culture
Why do you write like a black person? This thread needs to be heavily monitored before liquid kiki comes back and sees this mess. Get over here now sei!
It's not like y'all overreact to every """real""" Kiki that show up in here lmao
Trolls always post either in English, or random stuff in very bad Japanese, you know?
But you probably don't get the gist of elevated language in the first place.
'Chan culture' is always and has always been a terrible excuse for people being shitty on offsite projects
4chan is being driven into the ground by gookmoot anyway, why would anyone model their website after them
On one hand, it's an excuse for kids to be jackasses online. On the other hand, it's an excuse for manchildren to be jackasses online.
We don't deserve this man.
ｌｅｔｓ try wait for them to post again
Chan culture was probably the product of lazy moderation in the first place. >>7499
Sorry for using google translate.
Were any characters inspired by real people?
How do you feel about the fan names for the NPCs? Are they basically canon now to you?
They already answered that
Oh where at? Sorry. If they posted it here it's hard to Wade through the shitposting so I just missed it I guess.
すみません、私は日本語があまりよくありません。 私はGoogle Translateを使用しているので、これをどのように読むのか分かりません。 ききやまさん、あなたが本当のききやまなら、ゆめにっきをありがとうございます。あなたは新しいゲーム「ゆめにっき - ドリームダイアリー - 」に関わっていますか？あなたはゆめにっきをあきらめましたか？
Do you have plans for another project or collaboration in the future?
Kiki, what's your favorite area in the game?
1. What are the computer specs for this game?
2. Will there be a demo?
3. Will there be support for other systems soon?
Kikiyama, what was your process for making the game? For example, did you design areas based on your own dreams? How did you decide how to make them?
Also did you purposefully add in paracas symbolism and imagery on purpose?
Finally, I doubt you do, but do you by chance have any social media like Twitter, etc.?
I don't have a question, but I want to say thank you, kikiyama-san. I really want to think you're the real deal.
(I apologize if the translation is wrong.
Thank you for answering our questions. That means a lot to us.
My question: Have you experienced lucid dreams?)
Y'all just ignoring that sei said it's a japanese proxy
Someone could tell you that your coffee is poisoned and you'd still drink it
It's right here:>>7727
I swear to god people will believe anything
well yeah, it doesn't really mean anything. I'm based out of the US using a US proxy, for instance.
Not gonna lie I was excited a little but >>7808
was really poorly written in Japanese.
(The other their posts are also not that good written. Even the first post have some strange wording. (「あるのようです」→「あるようです」))
Like, well, I'm 100% certain that normal Japanese people would never write like this.
Sorry guys but I call this bullshit or kikiyama is actually not a Japanese person which is doubtful since their website is properly and well written in Japanese.
, these are the mistakes or strange wordings normal Japanese may easily spot or find difficult to read.
「より "も" 気に入った」→「より気に入った」
「 "絵方" 」← Does this word even exist in Japanese?
「日本でまるでこな物を知らない」→「日本ではまるでこんな物を知らない（or こんな物を見ない / 見かけない）」
「丁度いいと "思っていました" 」→「丁度いいと "思いました" 」
「色々 "の" マップが変わって」→「色々 "な" （or 多くの）マップが変わって」
「v.10が "完全してしまいました" 」→「v.10が "完成しました" 」
「そして "エフェクトが加えて" 」→「そして "エフェクトが追加されて" 」
「後で増えました」← wot? 「後になって増えました」？
STOP TROLLING US
You're a liar, that japanese is perfectly fine LOL, what are you trying to pull something like tthe guy imitating OP and then deleting it hours ago?
YOU STOP TROLLING US
If this true, I am both somewhat relieved and disappointed.
As far as I can tell he's just going by what makes more sense when re-translated into English through a web translator. Take it with a table of salt.
It wouldn't surprise me if that's what Kikiyama is doing. That's how I talk to my Japanese friends that aren't super fluent in English.
If you guys want more proof, we could try asking Kikiyama to update their website. They responded to the email thing right away, so it stands to reason that they would do the same with the update.
Somebody who speaks moon runes, ask him to update his site. Quick.
よりも actually exists http://jisho.org/search/%E3%82%88%E3%82%8A%E3%82%82
絵方 sounds indeed weird but it only means "style of drawing" (描き方 is more common though)
Particle dropping is common in japanese, as is っていまあす
If anything, it looks like he's relaxing the keigo and trying to make sense through google translator.STILL
until I see the site updated, EVERYTHING AND ANYONE IS FRAUD.
I think it's legit just from the email, I doubt it isn't, but someone should try and ask them to update their website, maybe it can work.
Google Translation is far from perfect.
Just google "絵方" on google and see how few pages it shows.>>7839
Those are totally not fine. Trust me I'm a Japanese.>>7841
No. Since I'm aware that my English sucks.>>7844
That's what I just did on >>7800
I won't believe it until something never before seen is posted. OP image and email could've easily been faked.
People already have several times. It's either not them or they've lost access. Both are about equally believable.
Considering trying to prove whether this person is real or not is basically going nowhere I think it's best to run under the assumption that it is until they go out of their way to prove otherwise, since they've already made it a point to not answer personal questions, and any answers about the games themselves should be verifiable.
What if Kikiyama is just an social entity and we are all a part of it? In a way, we are all Kiki.
Wouldn't that be worse? Anyone could make a mock up of a YN-like area.
Oh hey, real japanese? I know this probably isn't the best part to ask but do you mind being a reference to consult when I need to translate something from jap? It's mostly manga and/or games, and mostly YN-related.
It is you I do not trust. Fraud.
People have asked about it multiple times. I think we'd be overdoing it by constantly bombarding them with "site update wen">>7849
Alright. I didn't see that post, which is part of the reason why I suggested asking about it in the first place.>>7851
Alright, but it's not really a personal question. People would just be asking Kikiyama politely (I hope) to provide more proof. >>7855
Thanks, anon :>
If you want to use 「よりも」 in that sentence, you need to specify an object for comparison.
From this sentence, I assume he would like to say "Firstly I liked "Paracas" arts, and I liked it more after learning its history."
If you would like to say that in Japanese with using the word「よりも」、it SHOULD be
Sorry I'm not familiar with linguistic things so I'm not able to explain it simple and clear.
You can't ask somebody to do that without offering money.
So, asking the guy what a phrase means when I'm completely stuck is being a bitch? I suffered enough translating gidan and kidan and YN related stuff for free, and I'm a bitch for asking help from the only japanese person I've seen on the net who understands some english?
You guys are so considerate, I suppose I will take every patch and thing I uploaded down and ask you pay me for my work, "bitches".>>7861
Actually, you explained it very well while keeping it simple. Thanks.
Here are my two cents.
I asked a Japanese friend of mine and she had two things to say:
アステカじゃない、 would be better thanアステカじゃないの、
And she straight up didn't understand what they meant by the whole よりも気に入った thing.
I also find it hard to believe that Kikiyama would come to Uboachan of all places. So yeah, better get that website update ready.
Probably not since I'm also the one struggling with translating stuff (like, what I'm doing right now) and usually I'm not lurking on this board.
I'm only here cos r/yumenikki took me here.
But anyway, I admire your passion towards translating to make domestic things to global.
I believe your kind of person is the reason why Yume Nikki got its fame on global-wide nowadays. So, Cheers.
>tfw Kikiyama is actually a bit of an analphabet and we are just making fun of them
Well, did somebody ask you to do those translations without offering any money and without you saying you would do it for free first? If so, you cannot expect everybody to be so generous. It seems like common sense to me that you shouldn't just ask somebody to do that without offering something for their services.
You're the one ignoring that, as Sei pointed out, they would post from a proxy whether they're the real Kikiyama or a fake. They wouldn't be foolish enough to post on an imageboard with their bare IP.
Oh I don't mind if the explanation is in japanese, I just need it to disassemble into simple parts like you did in that よりも post.Still, I understand if you can't/don't want. It's a shame but I'll just have to bear with it like I've been doing until now.>>7867
Do you realize I'm asking
if he's interested in helping me? Not demanding
it? Do you? I think our japanese user here is smart enough to figure out if he'd want to do it or not and reply accordingly. Why do you even care whether we handle money or not?
「アステカじゃないの」isn't wrong but it sounds strange because the last character 「の」 makes it sound like colloquial (frank?) however his other wordings are not.
Kikiyama is a very private person. It doesn't surprise me that Kikiyama is using a proxy of some sort because the first thing that comes to mind is trying to track their location based on IP. If I were them, I would use one too.
I really wanted this one to not be a fraud, but this convinced me it probably is.
Pack it up, boys.
Hello Mina Sako
My Name Is Kikiyama Arigato
I Am Real Japanese
I can understand what your point is.
In Japanese, people tend to think that expecting someone to do a thing for free is common.
The idea of doing it with "a favor" is nicer than doing it in exchange of money.
However, they starting to notice it harms creator's QoL and may end up decreasing their motivation towards their work.
So I won't deny your stance.>>7869
Sorry but I may not do that in anyway.
Even just reading some English text is still hell of a job for me and it takes really long time and I don't want to lose my free time upon doing it.
No matter what, I can confirm that OP's wording is so bad comparing to the ones on his website.
It won't instantly make this fake but chances are considerably high I guess.
omg will you play my fangame??
but guys will you play my fangame, though?
TL Note: Utvikler means Developer
We have been lel'd
Oh god now the fangame shilling is even more pathetic lmao
what if kikiyama was actually one of the dozens of fake ones we've scared off over the years
Guys look! It's the real Kikiyama!
This has been hilarious
Wait, can we really be sure that that steam guy isn't fucking with us? We don't know if they really have contact with kikiyama or not.
90% of the people here were just commenting in good faith about someone who went out of their way to present themselves as kiki, it's not that big a deal.
Fuck the self-promo'ers, though
Thank you kiki, you've proved my point. I've been saying this since 2013.
Look at that generic fake-ass looking scary doll leaning against that sink in the screenshot. I feel dumb for giving this credit for even a second.
Kiki did you enjoy dickme dicki?>>7895
For more than half of this thread, people were really hyped it was him. Only two or three oldfags knew better than to say it wasn't suspicious, to the very least. But just look at all those namefags!
Best to take the chance to ask questions in case it was though, but naturally the chances were shit all.
Anyway, can you play my game Kikiyama?
At least it was an entertaining trainwreck.
>>7902>he downloaded an image from tumblr>that must mean he regularly uses tumblr
It's like it's 2013 again, lawdy
I feel like the Steam guys are fucking with us somehow but this kiki was definitely a fraud.
That may confirm that this "kikiyama" is fake, but we still have the "real" kikiyama that cheru says he is in contact with.
Maybe the steam guys are in contact with a fake kikiyama who wants to discredit the real one in this thread.
I think you might be on to something.
I wasn't saying it was a personal question, just that he said he wasn't answering them. Not that it matters now since apparently a PR rep from Playism is now the final word on what someone does in their free time.
both are fake
the real kikiyama was the fucking friends we made all fucking along
maybe YN is a temporal anomaly that poofed into existance and we've all been deluded into believing someone made it.
hola, soy kikiyama
Kikiyama can be found in all of us, in the love in our hearts and the bonds we make and the love we spread
Kiki lives on
Kikiyama fue un error.
no, YO soy kikiyama
I think this whole thing proves really well that you can't trust anybody to be in contact with "kikiyama". A change in the homepage is the sign that will reveal whether kiki is still alive or not. Almost like a religion, we wait the day that happens.
You're right, it seems to be the message they wanna give. People have faith too quickly and don't question shady things
like how the screenshots for this new game look like absolute dookie
If you read it, it's obviously from Kikiyama.
Yes I am. If the only reason why everybody is suddenly convinced that this kiki is fake is because of what some steam dev said, that's not full-proof. We don't know if that guy is in contact with the real kiki, so why would we believe anything they say? This feels like a knee-jerk reaction.
Wouldn't it be illegal for them to do that though? I mean lying on an image board is one thing but what you're suggesting is a bit more serious.
If Kiki's not around to say otherwise, nobody can really ever know if they actually got his consent or not.
Both are fraud, Kadokawa and this Kiki. I know the OP of this thread. Kadokawa is most likely fraud cause they have no evidence of having contact with him. But, no, this Kiki isn't real
That a demo will be released after the countdown and whatnot? Eh, not sure I buy it.
I don't know if true but since people here don't understand japanese (except for a few translators/that jap poster), most people seem to have missed the post.
Eh, could be real, could be not, but we're posting in the best fraud thread so…
Mado was raped
but was it lesbian rape?
So, according to >>7903
, when the countdown ends a demo will be released on steam for testing specs and internal functionality and game mechanics. Naturally, since it's a 3D game, there will be changes to the core gameplay but they're only to improve the playability on a 3D environment. ETA for full release is on late February.
Take that with a grain of salt, of course. Poster didn't use faggotsuki image reaction so it's likely fake.
project yn has done it what makes thid new company any different? kikiyama can't fight any copyright infringements because he's dead. people like you who want to rape a dead man's ip deserve a slow painful death.
Regarding what's supposedly a verification of this not being Kikiyama:
That steam developer, cheru..
Lol what the hell guys, who is cheru?
Why have you all, all around the internet, taken this person's words for granted?
Look at how he said it, just 4 words, in such a casual manner. That in of itself alone would bring me to questioning the credibility, but that's far from the only issue with the credibility of his claim(which is that this here in this thread is not Kikiyama).
All we know is that he is associated with this new Yume Nikki game, BUT why in the world are you all assuming he is associated with Kikiyama in any way, yet alone for their association to be personal enough for the developer claiming here it is not KIkiyama to know what Kikiyama does on the internet?
No where have I seen that Kikiyama is involved personally with this new Yume Nikki game, they just have his copyright.
I don't understand the credibility given to these 4 words said by someone for who I repeat, you have no idea about being acquainted with Kikiyama.
"Nowhere have I seen that Kikiyama is involved personally with this new Yume Nikki game, they just have his copyright."
He says he's been talking to kikiyama for years, and when asked to ask kikiyama to update his site, he just gave filler words and didn't really answer the question in a normal mannor. I don't trust his credibility either
Hello, the developer of Dreaming Sarah. I liked your game a lot. Thank you.
- random fan
We still don't have an answer for this though. I'm assuming marisaperon9 was the faker?
Except that fits the style exactly and nothing about it is 'scary-ass'. It looks just like the Mall NPCs or shitty-san. I'm not claiming Kiki actually did it, but whoever faked it did well enough.
I still believe in you Kikiyama! Don't go, anon loves you! Come back!
mail thing was also fake too?
We have no idea about this.
Until Kikiyama through recognisably credible means themself make a statament, no one else can particulary hold credibility over maters concerning Kikiyama.
>>8058>He says he's been talking to kikiyama for years
Okay, so now we know that he's full of shit. How hard is it to post screen caps? The initial reaction in this thread was probably unwarranted, but the sudden shift in attitude because of some random faggot seems just as uncalled for. The best evidence that this kikiyama is fake is actually this post.>>7934
Yeah this is suspicious. On the one hand, they say they have talked with Kikiyama for years. On the other hand, they say they contacted him with an email in order to make the game, which has been in development for 8 months. It doesn't match.
Can someone post a pic with that "for years" comment? Just to confirm it's not an anon exagerating
>>8080>Playism has been talking to Kikiyama for years now
That doesn't mean they've been meeting and talking every day, could be every couple of months. I have no reason to believe they're lying.
Playism were the ones to already have contact with him for years. Active Gaming Media Inc. were the ones to contact him for the new game.
Disregard this post I suck cocks. Playism is a platform owned by AGM
Look, Kikiyama's website is a thing based on something physical.
Be it that someone is paying for it, or that it's hosted via someone's personal equipment, it is something that continually requires someone's attention/dedication.
Why in the world, would Kikiyama not have made (or simply not make, since time's not short) any changes to their active website?
They can say whatever they wish, the Steam developer(s), but we have no verification..
Their reply in the screenshot you've posted is literally at the credibility level of gossip, since they've just written what they have, without ANYONE verifying it(anyone who could verify it)..
It's the same as the supposed Kikiyama here, it's based on blind trust.
The copyright is all the new game has.
Kikiyama might have died a long time ago, or something.
That's just a crazy guess, but we don't know.
Check the "Some Details/Developer Info Tidbits" thread on /yndd/. We got an official confirmation that they're part of the project.
>Kikiyama is properly on board with the project, he worked as a designer on the project and personally signed off on everything he chose for them to move forward with on the project and contributed ideas and scrapped ideas for the original for things to be added to it. Everything has gone through and been approved by Kikiyama for this project.
>Apparently how Kikiyama got involved was not that extravagant. They used the public email on Kikiyama's site and got into contact with them. Kikiyama has received a LOT of emails over the years and is not very happy about it, they asked only for people to email them about project relevant stuff. Kikiyama will not be doing interviews or popping up online anytime soon though, they aren't getting involved with the public.
Yume Nikki -Dream Diary-
A [f]raud for fans
It is just what they say, because they can say it, because of "owning" the copyright now.
