Game Review: Yume Nikki
Note: For the good of all involved (especially those who are sensitive or prone to depression), this review includes the game’s ending with some commentary over it to lighten the mood. Believe me, I wish *I’d* seen it advance before I got there on my own.
For a shorter, non-depressing and (IMO) generally better-done taste of what the game is like, go here. It’s basically a fan film I made for Halloween. ^^
Funny, I don’t remember actually doing this….
In any case, Yume Nikki is a strange freeware game in which there is no world to save and no princesses to rescue. Instead, you roam through the dream world of a rather disturbed young girl.
Things take a turn for the bizarre in this review. How bizarre? (Song reference not intended.) Well, you’ll have to see it to believe it.
