N'Oubliez Jamais' title screen.
N'Oubliez Jamais (lit. Never Forget) is a Yume Nikki fangame made by Perverse Suffering, known for its unique, realistic approach to the dream system. As opposed to having a single, interconnected dream world, the player is randomly placed in a linear set of locations, the end of the dream depending on the choices of the player. This system of short, random activities is comparable Nintendo's WarioWare game series.
During a period of uploading screenshots for a potential update on Uboachan, Perverse Suffering disappeared for multiple months, returning on April 23rd, 2013 to announce the game's cancellation.
As mentioned above, N'Oubliez Jamais sends the player to a random location with a scripted event. The players actions (or how deep they go into the dream sequence) give them a different type of memory at the end of the dream:
The ending of the game is determined by the first type of memory the player collects 5 memories for, regardless of the amount of other memory types.
The game stars Al Ree, a young boy described as a prophet by the menu screen (evidenced by his dreams affecting reality).
Al Ree, unlike many protagonists, lives in a three-room apartment with his parents and cat, and is able to exit his home. Strangely enough, exiting the main room of the apartment leads directly outside the complex and onto the street, either implying they are on the first floor with immediate access to the outdoors in lieu of a lobby or that the designer chose to omit traversing the rest of the building altogether. The adjacent street and alleyway available are featureless and gray, but may be modified gradually by collecting memories.
Unlike other fangames, effects are not unequippable and are assigned to the player based on their current dream.
|Bucket Head||Al's head is replaced with a full wooden bucket of water, making him able to save Mom from the stove fires.|
|Sideways||Al is floating sideways, walking on walls. A piece of his head floats above him as a bug, due to Charset size limitations and the head being placed as an event in the map.|
|Flute||Al plays a flute, calming the reapers and saving Dad.|
|Al's Cat||Al becomes his cat. Used to save his cat from pack of dogs.|
