Kadokawa released a new gameplay trailer for Yume Nikki: Dream Diary, the 3D reboot the 2004 cult surrealistic adventure game Yume Nikki, which releases tomorrow on PC.
Here’s a look at the new “Now, wake up.” trailer:
In its original form, RPG Maker darling Yume Nikki was a divisively controversial work among fans. By contrast, YumeNikki -Dream Diary- is a collaborative show of the utmost respect for auteur Kikiyama’s seminal release.
The RPG Maker team at Kadokawa has paired up with Active Gaming Media’s development team of ardent Yume Nikki fans to bring you this modern indie title in the form of YumeNikki -Dream Diary-. This diverging follow-up combines influences from the original game and other recent indie juggernauts to create something wholly unique.
YumeNikki -Dream Diary- was created under supervision and with the full cooperation from the original creator, Kikiyama themselves. We hope it will help to create a whole new wave of fans, as well as push the envelope in terms of what RPG Maker games can become.
Featuring “all-new old” original character!
A character dormant in Kikiyama’s imagination (and design documents) surfaces 16 years after Yume Nikki’s original release.
Yume Nikki: Dream Diary releases on February 23, 2018 for PC via Steam.
