Dream Diary by Following-The-Rabbit Dream Diary by Following-The-Rabbit
Yume Nikki (ゆめにっき, lit. Dream Diary) is a 2004 independently produced surreal psychological horror adventure PC game by homebrew Japanese developer Kikiyama. 
Players begin the game as a hikikomori named Madotsuki at home in her apartment, the only area she can explore when awake.

When Madotsuki sleeps she begins to dream, and the player is presented with a dream world which resembles the same room Madotsuki fell asleep in, with some minor differences. In this dream world the player is able to leave the room, which will lead to a zone of 12 doors, with each leading to a different world to explore. These 12 worlds in turn connect to a number of other worlds, forming a large and expansive area for the player to roam. The environment in each world is uniquely surreal in its own way. The plot and story of the game is for the user to navigate the main character's dreams and to obtain 24 objects known as effects. "These effects cause all sorts of things to happen, from the pedestrian, to the strange, to the downright demented." Both natural and artificial backgrounds like a forest, mountainside, a colorful neon maze, a bizarre number world, and a world full of mutilated body parts set a strange tone for the game.

The public release of version 0.00 of the game took place on 26 June 2004, as a demonstration preview of an incomplete game. With each following version from 0.01 to 0.09 new features and content were progressively introduced, along with various bug fixes. The latest version, 0.10, featured general bug fixes and became available on 1 October 2007. The creator has mentioned that there will be an update in the future.

Happy anniversary, Yume Nikki.
Happy birthday, to the dreaming girl, Madotsuki. Sweet dreams...

If you've been following me for a year or so, you probably know how much Yume Nikki means to me; it's one of the few games that I've played that I can say I've fallen in love with. It's simple in structure, but it really draws me in with it's atmosphere and themes, and I still enjoy revisiting the game to explore Madotsuki's dreams.
That said, when I found out the tenth anniversary was coming up, I had to jump on making something special to commemorate the day.

I debated with myself for a while about what I would make. In the end, I felt that a solo picture of Madotsuki would do the trick; something that would capture the isolated feeling that the game gives off, but still with a sense of endlessness and possibility. 

I wanted to include all 24 of the effect eggs, but it looked too crowded. This, I broke it down to a few essentials, and some of my favorites. Can you guess which one's which?
