>>466196297Unironically startled me when I found it.Uterus monster looking at you when you leave Endless Road also.
hee look thirstynot enough gamer girl pee
Is it time?
give me some good not-really-scary-but-unsettling-games like yume nikki
>>466197434I dunno what you'r talking about but I'm gonna say yes and see what happens
>>466197558strawberry cubescement mixer simulatorfunny pizza landkill dadirisu syndromebad day at the midway
>>466197301this, lets post some gamer girl pee to help him
Are we even allowed to talk about Yume Nikki in nu/v/?
>>466198930please make more yume nikki threads is what i would say. or just go to uboachan
Once October comes, I'll play Yume Nikki to completion. I mean it this time.
>>466196297dumping fan art
>>466196297me no like red vore man nononono
>>466197558I find this game way scarier than most games that actually try to be scary
>yfw aztec rave monkey
>>466203580screenshot from a fan game.
>>466196297Tell me about this game, /v/. I typically give anything anime an impressively wide birth, but I'm vaugely interested in this
>>466197558Off-Peak, feels like a fever dream.
>>466203746is just a "muh depression" gameavoid it, is shit
>>466203746It's not really anime at all, just japanese. You play as a girl exploring her dreams, it's very trippy and disturbing. It's SUPER slow and you have to learn to appreciate that if you wanna enjoy it. It's free and easily accessible anywhere on the internet, go get it (but not the steam version, that one is bugged)
>>466203746Explore some shut-in girl's dreams.That's literally it. Free on Steam, you could literally be playing it in a minute.Just try it. You'll know pretty quickly if you don't like it.
>>466204054You filthy secondary, I bet you only played the disgusting remake.There are themes of depression in the game, although they are never explicit, but overall it's just dream exploration.
>>466203746just download it for yourself, play it all in one sitting. thank me later. it's worth it.>Captcha: Select all images with bicycles
>>466204080>>466204124Wait, the Steam version's bugged? How so?
Are its fangames fine too?
>>466204192Is it short? I played Titanfall 2 in one sitting so I could probably manage this
>>466204212It's not. It just keeps some speed enhancing bugs from the broser-download version
>>466204212It was bugged at launch, even if they fixed that all the effects are mistranslated. It's an autism thing but that's my recommendation.
>>466204338Beating the game takes 3 hours if you're impatient with it but if you can handle it it can take 6.
reminder that you should play yume 2kki and support Wataru!
Time to post some cursed images.
>>466204338Really depends how quickly you figure it out, there's a lot of stuff that you could easily miss if you don't already know about it.
>>4662044436 hours is nothing, friend. I'll look into it
>>466203746Not OP but imo this game captures the feeling of a dream better than any other game. Not anime at all.It is a walking simulator though. It's all about the atmosphere. Some people may find it boring. If you play you should do so without a walkthrough for as long as possible. I guarantee you will not finish it without a guide though.
>>466204628it's really worth your while. the ost is great too. sad because this game is kinda losing popularity because of it's obscurity.
>>466203685I don't know if it's intentional, but I like the low poly/simple aesthetic. Fits well. Though I think a Doom approach, with sprites moving in "3D" would work even better.
>>466203136that thing scared the shit outta me
>>466204338I guess it's short if you know what you're doing, but if you're going in blind it's possible you'll never beat it.It took me a couple days of not knowing anything, then caving and looking up the last couple things.
>>466204787>>466204661So it's a big IQ game for big boys? Or just bullshit puzzles? One last question: is it in English?
>>466204756I think it adds to the dreamlike feelas does the jrpg overworld part of the original game.
>>466205014nonoyes (if you get it on steam)
>>466205014It is in English. There's no real puzzles, you just wander around looking for all of the effects in the different worlds. However, these worlds can be confusing to navigate or are extremely large and easy to get lost in since they loop.
>>466205014If you're somewhat smart you probably have an easier time remembering paths to places. It's really easy to get lost since maps often loop and don't have many waymarkers. Very few puzzles, if you can even call them that.And yes.
>>466205014>So it's a big IQ game for big boys? Or just bullshit puzzles?No IQ bs. Just an acquired taste. Again, all atmosphere and no gameplay.>One last question: is it in English?There is an english fan translation but there wasn't much to translate in the first place.
>>466204753YN popularity comes in waves. Wait for the next big indie darling, there's a good chance it'll have some DNA from it. Draws in all the newfags.
I understand now. I will now purchase your free atmosphere game about Japanese school girl dreams. Thanks for the decent thread, v.
>>466196297Yume shikki wen
>>466205613If you want more after you finish it look up some of the fangames. There's also a whole chan for the game @ uboachan.net
>>466205613to add on to what that other anon said, some good fangames worth checking out are definitely Yume 2kki and .flow
What were your recent dreams /v/?Today I dreamed about a flat place. I heard weird screams at one place where many things were. For no reason I tried to jump and stomp the floor afterwards it broke and I dived into the sky. During the fall I heared the screams over and over and then I woke up.My dreams are weird.
>>466206384So I was with my bro Kyle and we were like at Trevor's place but Kyle was walking on the ceiling for some reason and get this he told me that I was the one who was upside down roflmao
>>466206384I was back in high school and a fuckton of students with guns surrounded the campus and wouldn't let anyone leave. I saw many students try to escape from secrets routes and get shot. I then realized that there was a pattern to how they rotated i could exploit to escape and using this i run out the front gate and while running I alert one of the patrol guys and they barely miss me like in the movies. it ends with me getting shot in the shoulder and waking up.
>>466206384I don’t have dreams often but when I do they’re usually mundane with something slightly off. Either in the actual setting or in the way I/other people are acting.
>>466207274Bless you for this anon, I've been thinking about taking a deep dive into this "genre" for a while
>>466207274LCDDEM has kickass music
>>466207274>please do not discuss or play lcd.dem. please just forget about lcd.dem.Is there an actual reason or was this to just to add mystery and bring attention to the game
>>466207805Could be either or considering the game's ending was pretty ominous
>>466207274Hylics has such a surreal and unique style to it, maybe I should give it a play
>>466207274Reminder: the sequel to CRYPTWORLDS is gonna be soulless garbage.
>>466207805Probably something like that.The creator of Yume Nikki was known for having a very quiet and distant online presence, despite having made a dedicated website for his game. It wouldn't be strange for fan game creators to mimic that.
Always wanted to make one of these kinds of games
I remember when this game worked on my computer. How the hell did I get stuck with a Mac? It doesn't support fucking anything!
>>466208360Go for it, man. Just start a project. The game engine could be very minimal.
.flow will forever be my favorite.
>>466197558Au Sable or All of Our Friends are Dead. Both are more overtly horror than just creepy, though.
>>466207996I have it downloaded rn. Just a heads up, all the text and dialogue is randomized. Even the exposition at the very beginning. Make your own head canon and go along for the ride
>>466207274Middens was good shitI'd almost put it above YN
>>466208602How spooky is it
>>466208536I have the means, and I've made a bunch of music for it but I always just keep putting it off.
>>466208802Post music? Don't be shy.
>>466208802Literally just make a single static image asset right now. Walking simulator projects are so easy to pick up when you only have motivation every once in a while.
>>466208710All of it? Fuck that's interesting, definitely gonna give it a hot then
>>466208785If gore, body horror, or a sense of "illness" bother you, it would be pretty spooky. Otherwise it's mostly just unsettling. More so than Yume Nikki, though.
>>466208149What makes you say that?
>>466208149what makes you say that?
>>466209094yeah do this but post some of that music first
>>466208785.flow is yume nikki if two things: 1. the game wanted to go towards horror instead of weird/unsettling(not to say .flow doesn't have weird/unsettling). So yeah it can be really tense to play and a bit spooky2. the game wanted to have a more defined meaning towards it instead of flat out mystery
>>466208329Is that some rotoscoping? In a video game? Neat.
>>466209349Every single line. I was racking my brain trying to think what it all means untill I made that discovery. Personally it kind of bummed me out because I was hoping for some interesting lore and stuff to go w the surreal world, but by all means jump in and have a good time. Music was pretty nice too.>>466209528What makes you say that
>>466208762too bad the creator is a sex pervert
>>466209528What makes you say that
>>466207805Isn't the ending involving the MC mother's getting killed and the creator's mother dying in a similar way.
is kikiyama dead?
>>466209713So is the rest of /v/
>>466209869No. Pretty sure he updated his site at some point in the last few years.
>>466209798idk what you really said bc I stopped reading. Spoiler your shit man. I was asking bc I've never played>>466209713So aren't you
>>466209882He got caught trying to lay underage girls in chatrooms
POSTING THE BEST YUME NIKKI VIDEO.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyesXcoFOfA
>>466209483>>466208871Okayhttps://clyp.it/user/gwxp2lcjI posted some of these in one of these threads before but here's some of it
>>466209869Do we know that kikiyama is one person?
>>466210262All of that guy's videos are so good and wholesome.
>>466210268thanks anon. I'm gonna listen to literally all of it. first track slaps so far. where you inspired by YN and these types of games? What program do you use?
>>466210420How about these ones?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meTLlwIfC5g
>>466210268interesting to hear a YN fangame that has music with some proper melodies in it. Really good stuff anon, you should go forward with making that game. some of the tracks give me a sort of ghoslty Ghibli vibe, very nice.
>>466210268honestly could easily make a soundtrack for an anime with some of these tracks. Station's my favorite one so far
>>466210268this shit's good man, go through with that game i'm sure it'll be great
>>466210268I just realized what your style reminds me of, Made in Abyss's soundtrack. I'd honestly listen to a full album made of tracks like this, you've got talent
>>466210537I forgot the flute part
Gonna play worlds right now, anyone wanna join?
>>466210529Yeah, I think it's the freedom that this type of game has for both the designer and the player. Just a very attractive project for people who think too much.>>466210873>>466210704>>466210643>>466210557Thank you! I really appreciate it.
>>466211049do you have a sort of site or something that you post this stuff on? i'd love to see your ideas come to fruition, my imagination got set off just listening to your tracks. Absolutely adore the almost eastern feeling to some of them, your piano melodies especially are top notch.
>>466211049You didn't answer my questions dipshit. Your music is good but damn. I'm over here trying to inquire
>>466210268Wait I remember you from way back.didn't you also posted this in another yume nikki thread?
>>466210268I love it.
>>466211296>>466211049>>466210268Why such obscure titles for the tracks as well?
>>466211405i'd presume it's to fit with other fangames since ost tracks in YN games tend to have obscure names too. also don't be mean to them
>>466211296>>466211405They were made in FLStudio, and all of them were just named after things I was thinking about at the time.>>466211346Yeah I've posted a few of them before.
>>466210268Since everyone is else swooning over it, I'm gonna be the first to criticize. While soothing, your chord progression is predictable and thus feels flat. Like another anon said, it sounds somewhat like an anime soundtrack, but not in a good way. There's no unique 'style' or flavor to it. You can drop this in whatever game or show and it would probably match.
>>466211740I knew it, any progress on the game anon?
>>466211574don't reply to me dipshit, you aren't musicbro.>>466211740Thank you I've been debating making my own attempts at music but I've just too disinterested in everything. Personally windows and doors was my favorite. Where you thinking about these things randomly or are they concepts that might be integral to your game ideas? Very curious>>466211741Criticism is a good thing but not when it's baseless and untrue. Listen to this anon at your own discretion but I personally disagree completely. Your stuff is solid and definitely has style to it. Kind of melancholy.
>>466211741not him but I really like the feeling the piano brings to the tracks, it compliments the soothing and dreamlike nature of them well.
Okay really funny however just sent me to the fucking fbi webpage you motherfucker
>>466212126>dipshiti was just explaining the general naming conventions for yume nikki fangame ost tracks in general, mean :(
Bros i'm scared...
What's your favorite event /v/?fangames are ok
>>466212023Not really, I've been getting better at various things related to game development but haven't really made that plunge yet.>>466211741That's understandable, I don't really have much fundamental knowledge when it comes to making music, so a lot of it is probably based on predictable conclusions. I've been looking into more music theory recently, so I'll try to experiment some more.
>>466212126>my opinion differs from you, therefore it is baseless and untrueDo you even hear yourself speaking? Soft piano and string instruments is the definition of generic, especially if there's no interesting melody or chord progression to be found anywhere. I'm not out to hurt musicbro, I want to give him something to think about so he may improve in the future and give us all even better BGM to listen to.
>>466212601jesus this game looks weird
>>466212601I can't tell if that thing is full of literal schizos or if it's just ironic faggots from /v/
>>466212617https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0xohwCS-i0the journey getting there is the best thing i've ever experienced in any of these YN games, wataru's maps have fantastic atmosphere to them. Truly felt like going on a journey
>>466210262this is my favoritehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTcW5l666UE
>>466196297I’m going in
Convince me to play this in 15 words or less.
>>466212990you'll never play anything like it again
>>466213094are there actual people playing this?
>>466212772That picture reminds me of Fragile. Which, if it wasn't for the shoehorned in combat, would be pretty close to a YN-like.
I played OFF during a pretty downer period in my life because it seemed like a pretty cool game. It is cool as hell with a cool main character, but its progressively darker tone up to whatever all that stuff was at the end left me feeling real sour after bingeing it. Definitely recommend that shit if you like or don't mind the pretty standard RPG Maker combat. Good tunes, too.
What are some kino schizo games?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSY1aMt872M
>>466213154There were a handful of weird boomers who stuck with the client since the 90's but then /v/ and /x/ found it so it's now full of le spooky faggots
>>466213168Is it worth a look? That description piqued my interest
>>466213154Yeah, talking to this guy rn
>>466212772>going through all the deserted city area with that soothing piano loop to get greeted by that planetarium eventmost peaceful i've felt playing a game in years.
>>466213323For sure. Nice atmosphere, settings, and music. One of the loneliest games around.
Bruh wtf is going on
>>466212990https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVgPmQyeKR8Check this out
>>466207274I’m a phoneposter and I can’t read this
>>466212683Follow your heart and piss on theories, musicbro. My humble ignorant advice.
Yume Nikki is very dream like no pun intended but I find .flow to genuinely be unsettling, shame I can't get it to work on PC anymore.
>>466204331yes.flow and 2kki are the go to ones
>>466213456part of me wants to get on just to see how weird this shit is, but it's 11 AM and I've literally not slept so
>>466213456is this in-browser? How many people are usually on doing.. whatever this shit is
>>466213597Press the three dots in the upper right, check the box that says Desktop Site. You're welcome>>466212683pianoanon do you have any more tunes? Anything game related you could show us? Even ideas to talk about? I'm interested
>>466212617I've always been a sucker for the aztec rave monkey
>>466214035I posted more in that link. I'll have to dig in my folder of unorganized projects for even more though. And yeah I can show more in a bit.

>>466216513I have some sketches
>>466217296>Number-tag>one-eyed gas masksI'm gonna play your game one day anonI'm eating this stuff up, if you care to post anymore
I am kind of glad my precious Yume Nikki did not blow up like how undertale did.Still it is kind of a shame it does not get the recognition it deserves. It is a mixed feel to be sure.
>>466217725Fucking cute and imaginative. >>466217820>>466218306>>466218475Sci-fi/post-apoc setting? Or is it all in little girls head? You have many talents, anon. Let's hope game design is one of them!>>466218763It's okay. I'm patient. So I'm guessing this is a project beyond RPGmaker in scope, since you have a 3D model. Is that right?Plans for combat? Turn-based?
>>466207274from what I gather LCDDEM looked cute and comfy on the surface but there is one moment that really was a fucking punch in the gut and it sticks with you for a long time. from what this picture is telling me it seems the dev feels ashamed of his work and does not feel like it could be compared with the other big yume nikki fan games so he wanted to be erased which is a shame cause it is amazing in its own right.
>>466218932No telling what would happen if YN and its ilk became more popular, but I'm pretty happy with the niche following of obscure but really good free/cheap titles that came out because of it's obscure roots. Conversely LSD Dream Emulator became streamer bait but it didn't practically spawn it's own populated genre of games like YN Like RPGs did so maybe recognition isn't everything.
The song that plays when you are on mars depicts that intense feeling of openness and crushing isolation for me. I remember how I would listen to it on repeat and just stare at this image for seemingly hours while just having that sense of dread and loneliness wash over me.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJjNLs-zumU
>>466197901>irisu syndromeNo fuck that, i played it when it wasnt translated and the bitch scared the shit out of me when she walked in off screen
>>466218942It's about people that move to Mars and contract a disease which manifests shared hallucinations. Certain individuals are inadvertently able to alter the hallucinations through fear, so they're locked away in isolation for public safety; But if they themselves can overcome the fear it becomes usable.I don't actually know, I want it to be kind of exploration based because frankly I'm weakest with programming. Though there are themes that kind of require some kind of fighting or challenge.
>>466206384I was on a giant orange/yellow and purple robotic centipede, on top of which lived some civilization. Everyone stayed inside their houses, which were two to three spheres stacked on one another, because robots of similar height to the homes patrolled the streets. I was hiding on the second floor of one of these homes with a group of other people; I turned to see a blonde haired girl that I felt like I knew. She said something to me, she had some kind of responsibility. Then she opened the circular window behind her and jumped out. I watched as she fell down, being caught by the waves of dirt created as the centipede traversed a barren, grey land. It felt oppressive, like everyone was forced onto this monstrosity to live out their lives for whatever reason.
>>466220795neat. so that's implies there's some kind of collective unconscious? Sounds pretty unique. So whole communities are walking around with false senses of reality and they all confirm these falsehoods as real bc they all technically see them.. Is the MC (lil girl) one of these ppl who affect the hallucinations? Are there real dangers on Mars? Sorry if I'm grilling you with questions. Interested is all.
>>466217296>>466217725>>466217820Great music and adorable designs. Castle is my favorite track. I hope you find the time and energy to continue these projects, good luck to you.
>>466221385Most people are aware the hallucinations are fake but they still have a visceral reaction to them. They know it's fake but can't control how it makes them feel, so in that regard even the fake dangers are real on mars.And yeah, the little girl is one of the people who can affect them.
>>466222727Thank you anon. You should give the girl a pet alien-dog, just because. It's an idea. Actually what is the robo-walkman thing about? If this thread 404's before you reply... I love you
>>466222934Thank you. And it's a cat.
>>466223492Cat is even better. How much of this stuff do you have? Seems like you've been sitting on this idea for a long time. Still haven't told me about the robot..... Is it a secret?
>>466223585>the council will see you now
>>466223771The rectangular robot is just a generic assistant robot, and yeah I've been tossing it around for a while.
>>466223926What can it do? Is it a slave or a friend? Is there one colony on Mars or more? Any terraforming? I hope you have time because I could genuinely go on for a while.
Is yume shikki still active?
>>466224273It's a friend. The cat and the robot were sent by someone else.
>>466197558.flow was great
>>466208329such a fucking good trailer
>>466224949Mysterious. I'll leave you alone now anon. I need to sleep anyway. I hope I catch you in another thread sometime
>>466225684Thanks! I'll see you around
I played this game recently and while I understand the kind of impact it had on every single RPGMaker game after it, I just don't really get it.Maybe because I played it in a rush or maybe because I hate looping rooms but the game wasn't scary or had any dialogue or direction. Is that the appeal? just getting lost and endlessly exploring every single inch of every room and try random stuff until you find something obscure?The ending was also disappointing
>>466210132The source was one bitter ex of his on Tumblr, so I wouldn't take it as gospel personally
>>466197558the original pathologic really feels like one of those haunted .exe games stories from /x/ from time to timethe new one is a bit too polished to feel like that, but still has its moments
>>466231618Monoe best sister
>>466229062The abstract atmosphere, unconventional design, and general strangeness are likely its main appeal, so it's not really even designed for everyone, it just kind of is. Playing it in a rush sounds like it could have ruined it for you, though.
>>466197558.flow just got an update
>>466197558Towelket, though it's more on the humorous side than YN
how the fuck do i play 2kki
>>466229062It's really not for most people. I liked the concept, but in practice the game was just too dull and didn't provide enough in the way of atmosphere to capture me. The concept is executed impressively well, with the huge amount of levels and interconnectedness, so even after all the fan games it's still one of the best. It just comes down to lack of plot, dialogue, gameplay, or music for me, which is why I prefer RPG Maker games with similar themes, but that have actual combat and puzzles and such. Despite not liking it, I'm still glad it exists.>>466233604Hey, I'm playing Towelket 3 now. It's actually really good.
>>466233773oh, I didn't know that one got a translation. I went through it last month, really quirky gamebest character
>>466233604Totally and completely forgot about these because they were only in Japanese last time I checked, time to test it out.
>>466220212It was more like a feeling of awe and/or zen for me. Like if civilization ever arrived on mars there would be a huge temple standing in the distance somewhere.
