Yume Nikki ☆ 24EFFECTS ☆

Yume Nikki ☆ 24EFFECTS ☆
[Audio CD, 1 Disc]
Source: Yume Nikki [Indie]
Composer: Various Artists
Release Date: 2009
Label: Doujin/Indie

Yume Nikki is an indie game that has developed a cult following over the past few years, thanks to its retro feel and unnerving gameplay. There is very little story aside from what you can infer when you explore the main character's twisted dream world. While the game is low on jump scares, the creepy settings, strange creatures, and unsettling sounds can start to tax your sanity. In a similar way, this compilation album preserves the feel of Yume Nikki's tracklist and its retro gaming charm. There's a decent amount of variety here as well, with definite breakcore influences in 'endleSSStation' and other tracks. Listeners that have tried the game will notice subtle nods, like the light switch flicking on and off during 'disregard', an action that can have serious consequences in the game (and apparently in the track, oh god nooo).

  18. Yume Nikki is a great game. It's funny, because all of the song files in the game are no more than a few seconds long, it's just played on a loop. It doesn't look like any of these are remixes of Torinigen Party, which makes me sad. That's my favorite song in the game.
