Yume Nikki is one of those games which always ends up on important indie and horror game lists. However, up until now, it existed purely as a freeware exe file with no “official” English release.
That changes now that Playism have helped to publish Yume Nikki on Steam. This pixelated horror title features a lot of meandering, nightmarish imagery and is the type of game that you either love or hate.
There’s no reason not to try Yume Nikki now that it’s on Steam. The download is free and runs on Windows. Apparently another Yume Nikki project is also soon to be revealed!
