OverviewEdit

nostAlgic is a Japanese Yume Nikki fangame created by TOM in RPG Maker 2000. It is known for its very light color scheme and for having a generally more optimistic take on a YN-based exploration game.

Dubbed "the anti-.flow", the relaxing music and relative lack of frightening elements, which are usually present in other fan games, allows the player to focus on the lighter side of dreams.

GameplayEdit

nostAlgic is a traditional fangame. Sleeping on the bed will take the player to the dream world. From there, the player can explore the various areas and collect effects. Interact with the notebook while awake to save.

ControlsEdit

  • Move - Arrow Keys
  • Interact - Z
  • Open Menu - X
  • Effect Action - Shift

PlotEdit

You play as A. A's dreams are rather light and childlike, meaning they possibly want to forget why they locked themself in and/or refuse to go out.
