I'll always have a soft spot for Yume Nikki. Yume Nikki and Uboachan literally changed my life multiple times. Things would have been very different for me. And of course it had a huge and lasting impact on my sense of aesthetic and the kinds of stories I enjoy. Sometimes I still boot it up to show to friends.
I still like YN, it never really left me since playing it in 2008. I have also quietly collected people's self published works and handmade things for a while.

Is there something wrong with them?
>>9218>What should be done about the current zoomer problem this fandom has?
That happens everywhere, it's not just this game's fanbase, and what to do about it? Nothing, it's just strangers posting cringe on the internet, just ignore and move on, the Yume Nikki&fangames thing stopped being an obscure niche a very long time ago.>>9224>Is there something wrong with them?
Quite a lot, these things are very dangerous in hands of stupid people and we're talking about teenagers here. The world is a fucked up place with people who give terrible advice to kids.
i know what you mean. the zoomers that listen to bladee and ecco2k, draw/retweet "dark but ironic" anime images, and type like irony is the only thing their brain is capable of spewing. they're annoying as fuck and only into yume nikki because wacky anime drug aesthetic. they'll fuck off eventually once their shit is out of style in a few years, but for now i just grin and bear it
It's really hard to find dedicated fans in these types of games. I remember seeing art of drugged out mado long before I knew what Yume Nikki was, and I just thought it was edgy for the sake of edginess. Sadly, it still holds true.
Thankfully I don't see those edgy kids too often. On twitter, it's usually just people posting yn art and people replying "wow ur based"
Shit, I remember being in an edgy phase in early middle school. I can't bear to think about how fuck-off stupid I was. Thankfully by eighth grade I changed for the better. I'll be like that for those teen edgelords too. They'll appreciate the game for what it really is, or discover it isn't for them. Just distance yourself from them, and talk with the fans than actually like the game.
I think that would fit better in Off-Topic /ot/ or Other Games /og/, but Yeah I heard of it! It's a fun game once you get the hang of it. I listen to the soundtrack every so often too.
That's all I'm going to say about this on /yn/ tho…
>>9218>ironic fans who laugh at others who look too deeply into things.
There is nothing wrong with that, people can have their own interpretations of the game, I for one don't think Mado is mentally ill at all and I think she wasn't raped either
my first experience playing it will never leave me.
what the fuck? i barely entered in this board and all i see is dead posts, people who try to revive this and this post. you all look like sad young man being nostalgic about their lifes. kys(NEAT)
Welcome, Please try to be nice.
fuck you. at least let this be dead rather than being the milenial dumphole i'm seeing now
i don't know who are you talking about
You know you can like, close the tab, right zoomer kun?
I don't know what makes you go out of your way to bother visiting this board and posting here when you con't like it, there's lots of websites fit for zoomers, maybe try tiktok.
>>9304>>9303>u-u-uhh fuck you abloo abloo
Where do you think you are, underage tourist? Go back right now. >>>/r/eddit>>>/s/hitholeyoucrawledoutof
And stay there.
No idea, I always enjoyed Yume Nikki and it inspired me in a lot of different ways, I guess I'm not just a part of the "fandom" because… I don't know, never bothered I guess? So I'm capable of completely enjoying it for what it is, and not foam at the mouth at the same time.
Every fandom has toxic/undesirable people, doesn't matter the generation. I suppose I am happy that YN is still reaching more people and not totally fading away.
yume nikki fans =/= earthbound-copy fans
Yume Nikki has an entire world based/inspired around Mother 1 There is a lot of overlap with the Mother/Mother-Like/YN fanbase.. and for good reason; they're awesome.
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.
Of course, that's not as interesting as the one where they played Strife and decided to make the whole thing in the Doom engine.
>Anyone else here still has a soft spot for YN, even if you haven't played it in forever?
Are you implying that art loses its power over time? Or that YN is not art and just a fad? Because as far as I am concerned I will always enjoy this game because it is good. Why would age or time away change that?
This. The whole point of enjoying things like YN is that they leave a lasting impression.
Anyone who drops off because it's not current or popular is just a trendhopper.
Zoomers call me a millennial, and millennials call me a zoomer. Tfw neither group wants me
