Another Way is a Yume Nikki fangame made by FenrirDarkWolf.

You play as Drake, a mad scientist whose trapped himself in his lab. He can explore his subconscious via the teleporter in his lab. The game is on hiatus until further notice.


Another Way is a traditional-styled fangame, explore and collect effects, called Experiments in this game.

Experiments are used with the Shift key, and you can return to the Lab with the Return button from the main menu.


There is little to no plot. Just exploring a mad scientist's subconscious. Drake's reasons for exploring it may range from pure curiosity to self-experimentation to just for fun. There are very few people in his world.

In the real world, Drake can take the left-hand stairs go into a small hallway with an elevator that doesn't seem to work, and a smaller computer. From there, he can head onto his balcony. When you try to go onto the right stairs, he will say "No." or make a noise that indicates he does not want to leave.

Experiments (Effects)Edit

Effects are called Experiments in this game. You can undo the effects of an Experiment with the "Normality" option in the Experiments screen. An interesting thing about the Experiments is that each one has it's own face portrait, save for a few.
