og yn fan who was obsessed for years (prob to cope w irl) here. bought yndd when i had some money despite the backlash and the loss of ambiguity that the original had.
i have to confess that i play this game on my switch lite in the middle of the night. lights off, no discord, no phone, nothing. just me and yndd. it's… kinda relaxing, i gotta say. i like to wander around and not think about solving the puzzles in a way or find stuff in a too serious way. because of the influence yn had on me growing up, the horror atmosphere feels… like home. so, i "explore" yn for maybe 30 minutes or so till i fall asleep. it really feels like going back home, and i feel safe. just like somehow i did back then while playing the original. like going on a walk while your parents fight or something terrible going on, but you're stuck in front of a screen, projecting your need for escapism onto yn.
can anyone relate to this very specific feeling?
i wish i could play yn or well-known fangames on a handheld console, but this is sadly the closest we'll probably ever get to that.
I know what you mean. I started revisiting old games again recently, relaxing until I'm ready for bed. Everyone does it, sometimes to reflect, sometimes to relax.
I'm surprised there isn't an .apk or something for YN yet, though. I'd never looked into it.
Hi OP, not sure if this is what you're looking for, but easyRPG has been able to play rpgmaker 2003 games such as yume nikki, and most of its well known fan games (as well as games like OFF, etc), on a wide range of portable devices for almost a decade now ranging from android to iOS and even the switch or 3ds/psvita/etc. (as long as you can homebrew your consoles.) I've played yume nikki tons of times on handhelds like this and it's pretty comfy.
