Hello!! I wanted to write you a friendly reminder that DREAM JAM will close its gates for submission in 2 days, eight hours, and 42 minutes. I will try to check my account regularly in case anyone has any last-minute questions or concerns. Hopefully your game is fairly corporeal by this point. In my experience, now is the perfect time for polishing and debugging, but it's really up to you and your Imagination.

See you soon!!


The muzak is fairly stellar; who composed it? I should like to hear more developed versions of some of the pieces, and I sense the use of a recurring leitmotif, which endows the Dream with an Apollonian quality.

Overall, this fan game makes ample use of Yume Nikki’s ingenious structure, but in a new format, with a totally rare aesthetic, abounding in nostalgia, conveyed from a unique point of view and synthesized in an engine I had never heard of. It truly feels like a celebration, at once, of the commonality of dreams, as well as the individuality of Dreamers.



Thanks for your comment! I'm glad you enjoyed the game and the soundtrack :)

How's your game for Dream Jam coming along? Did you have any questions? Let me know also if you would like help networking, etc.


I just wanted to remind you the Dream Jam ends within two weeks. By this point, I hope you've developed a concept for your game. Let me know if you have any questions, concerns, or requests. I look forward to seeing it!!



Thanks! Life got in the way a bit, but I'm back on track now :)

DEL!GHTED to hear that, Stella. Or should I call you Lune? Haha. See you at the finish line, and let me know if you require any sort of aid.
