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?

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 remember playing it for the first time and just finding it boring. At the time I was more fast paced and prefered more action oriented games and multiplayer games so I quickly dropped YN. Now the game and the aesthetic grew on me. I can say it won't be leaving me now. I'll boot it (or a fangame) every once in a while when I have nothing else to do. I especially appreciate the music. Have a few in my playlist.

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.

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.

Yume Nikki gave me the hobby I like a lot and people on the internet I enjoy to hang out with and obsession over one particular character, and I'm very grateful for that. I've been into the fandom for pretty long time and it had a lot of influence on me. I can no longer imagine myself without that boring walking simulator game and everything surrounding it. This game is definitely took a plenty of space into my soul.
> What should be done about the current zoomer problem this fandom has?
Every barrel of honey has a fly in the ointment. And Yume Nikki fandom is not an exception. There's nothing you can do with it. Just move on.

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.

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.

 No.9441

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.

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?

Eh, I'm sure there are some older zoomers out there who were already into Yume Nikki before it became more popular with that generation. Those in that category are probably just being goofy with their nostalgia.

Now I personally welcome newer fans, but I feel like a lot of them are being introduced to this game in a bad way. I blame online aesthetic communities (like "weirdcore" or some shit) and Tik Tok in particular, it's really off putting how wrong they get Yume Nikki.

Ok, "getting the game wrong" was a bad way to say it. I think "wrong expectations" is what I was trying to say.

Anyways, I think some people (especially those aesthetic kids and and people on YouTube) exaggerate how Dark and Fucked Up this game really is. I mean, don't get me wrong, it does have some graphic imagery but not to the point where it's shocking. I can't exactly blame people for being disappointed that YN isn't the super disturbing game they were expecting, but it sucks to see them brush it off as some dumb walking simulator because of that. Or maybe I'm just a desensitized dumb fuck, I don't know. As for what it's really about, well, that's up to you.

 No.9520

>>9498
I think they honestly made a valid point even without going too into detail what they could really have meant. that hostility(?) was uncalled for, there's definitely a sort of shock culture that's "ruined" a lot of cool horror interests for original fans as gatekeepy as might sound.
>>9218
other people have already summed it up pretty well. there isn't really much to do other than to wait I guess. you can still enjoy the game, fangames, and the fanart all you like though. the game's become a sort of non-committed interest where I'll check in every year(s), and that on its own feels nice. personally my only regret is being too shy to do anything other than lurk constantly instead of participating in the communities over the years, especially when it was easier to find fans that cared more about the game outside of keeping in with internet/glitch/animecore aesthetics or whatever.

Perhaps it's just my limited exposure outside of uboachan and a few other select places but I don't really see a sort of zoomer problem myself, in fact I think the fandom is kind of dying.

Though if there is then I don't know if labelling it as a 'zoomer' problem is really the right way to go about it. I think we should welcome new members personally and any gained fame that yume nikki might receive in the future.

Of course, as things get more popular, you're gonna have more ironic fans, or fatalists, normies, etc but that doesn't mean that there aren't more serious fans still, it just means that there's more fans in general to sift through to find serious ones, while before when the community was smaller it was easier to sift through.

 No.9527

>>9521
with the zoomers, shitposters and weirdcore kids I hope the fandom dies out to a small handful of people instead of actually getting bigger, making yn seem like more of a "trend game" than [insert what you perceive game as]
do you remember undertale at it's prime? how shitty that was, because of purely how many people liked it? yeah, hoping that doesn't come to our gem.

I'm sure people will laugh at me and call me a boomer or something for this but the modern fanbase for Yume Nikki and its fangames genuinely upsets me. If you go to a site like this, sure, you can talk with other "real" fans. But on Twitter, Reddit, and other big social media sites, the fandom is limited to troons and teenagers who make shitty lolsorandumb memes about the games and have no appreciation for them outside of them fitting their stupid "niche 2000s japanese stuff" aesthetic. This is a big problem with most fanbases now, really. Nobody enjoys things in a non-memetic way anymore. Media is only consumed for memetic and aesthetic purposes. Teenagers now have a bizarre feeling of bastardized nostalgia for things they never experienced. You can see this with games like Friday Night Funkin. The game tries to pay homage to both 90s rhythm games and 2000s Newgrounds games, and to anyone actually familiar with either of those things, it miserably fails at both. However, to kids who are unfamiliar with them, FNF fills the "niche interest" void perfectly and in discovering all the classic Newgrounds games and such they develop a warped sense of nostalgia for flash games that came out while they were still just sperm. Not sure if this is gonna make sense to anyone else. I'm just sad at the state of things nowadays. Indie games aren't fun and creative like Yume Nikki anymore. They're just lame and inaccurate pastiches of things that came before. The centralization of the internet has irreparably ruined online culture. I want to go back. I want to be able to make friends online again. I want to talk about Yume Nikki with people who aren't 15 years old and "bigender."

Agree, lo-fi, vaporwave, early 2000's aesthetic and all that shit have their génesis in nostalgia. Maybe that shows how Bad modern entertainment has become that people have the need to remember an idealized past and the melancholy of growing up and soon facing adulthood.

That's true, but we don't know how old Kikiyama is. He could be old enough to have been a child or a teen when the Famicom was released.
