it was ludum dare this weekend and i made a little rpg maker game in the last 24 hours or so. i wanted to make a Yume Nikki fangame this ludum dare and spent a while working out how to work the theme into it. it really didn’t work as i had planned and i’m kind of disappointed with how it turned out.
the initial idea was to have each connecting route to the next area blocked by static/noise, which would become unblocked by examining things within the room or entering into the “dream world”, playing through dream areas and interacting with characters and whatnot.
i gave that up pretty early on because of lack of ideas (i had huge gamer’s block this weekend) and just set the whole game within the dream. by sleeping in the bed, you alter the cognitive static and can access new areas. there’s no real purpose but to look around and explore and collect things.
i kind of like the concept of it, and if i get time i’m definitely gonna add more fuel to it. it ended up pretty steam of conscious, which i guess is apt?? i dunno. its less of a Yume Nikki fan game and more some separate abomination altogether.
it’s 2:30 am and i’m sick.
