An RPG Maker tour de force, and a divisively controversial work for fans. You are free to explore the various dream worlds at your own pace. If you check certain characters or items in the game you will collect an “Effect.” These “Effects” can be used to change the main character’s appearance. Some of these “Effects” have special actions or animations which you can activate by pressing 1 or 3 on the number pad. Yume Nikki is a very unique title that has become one of the most well-known indie games to come out of Japan. It is unlike any other RPG especially in the fact that there really is no action or dialogue to speak of. This gives the game a very dark and foreboding atmosphere. Can you make it to the secret ending? There are no particular goals nor story of which to speak. You simply walk around. Checking certain characters inside the dream will increase the number of "effects". Using "effects" will cause the main character's appearance to change. (During this time, you can use the 1 or 3 keys to implement special movements and effects.) Using the same "effect" a second time will cause the character to revert to their original form. "Effects" can only be discarded inside rooms with many doors. FAQ Q. There is a glitch or aspect ratio issue in the game. A. Please switch to Window mode by pressing F4 or Alt + Enter. Q. Why does the Japanese version crash? A. The Japanese-language coding in this game runs only on Japanese system locales. If you want to play the game in Japanese and it crashes, please change your system locale to Japanese.

The Game I've been liking for a long time and I'm really glad it landed on Steam.

Ah Bah when you are told not to take LSD before going to sleep it was not to mess. But the game remains a intriguing combination between the cute and the creepy.

I think this Game is great, but I myself am too stupid to understand how to do it ... Well, no matter, I would have liked to have described the Protagonist things or something like that in the way.

To those who want to finish the game without using any external help, it's almost impossible. I was missing 1 single effect and I cracked. And this end, why be so cruel kikiyama

A free, obscure Japano horror Classic with lots of Subtext and a big Fanbase. A... Experience. First Impression Video: https://youtu.be/t0w5pGpzKlg Pro:-the Game does not require words and thrives on Visuals and Sound-a lot of Interaction possibilities to Discover-more Art than Game Contra:-more art than Game-many Events and Possibilities are difficult or just Randhahappens-Theories and Explanatory Videos definitely needed for Interpretation

A game that is not one. There is no fun, no laughs, no challenge. I also believe that the only way to finish this game correctly is to cheat or watch a let's play on YouTube. All along, we are stuck in a world that makes no sense, next to it the world of Chihiro's travel is totally rational. We can spend hours getting stuck, looking, walking in the void... YuMe Nikki is more of a gaming experience than a video game. It does not have the same codes or objectives.

The surreal adventure par excellence, this game is a classic that I had fun to revisit after so many years. I can understand that the game is not for everyone, after all there is almost nothing happening. But if a good atmosphere is something you are looking for years a game, run you it's free. On the other hand if I still see a prepubertal kid say that this game is from the ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ because, I quote "is that a Udy copy of undertale lolol this game it is not at all out before undertale look they say released in 2018 so I'm right", I'll locate that who wrote this and put a broomstick so deep in his ass that he'll have splits on his tongue. It's coordinated.
