MixiM's ver.0.1 title screen
MixiM is a Yume Nikki Fangame made by kisekinomahou.
The game stars Chie, a girl searching for Effects in order to manipulate her dream world. Through wearing certain effects, areas can change in appearance and show gateways to new locations. Dialogue (including symbols and website names) is used throughout the game to explain the situation of Chie and the dream world. The ending of the game includes a message to the player, further supporting the game's meta state.
About the Dream WorldEdit
In MixiM's universe, humanity was created by higher beings who use dreams to cure "mental corruption" (i.e. curing trauma from abuse at a younger age) in individuals (labeled as Patients in game). These dreams are abstract interpretations of the patient's life, all containing a sort of "safe room". The patient is allowed to stay in this simulation eternally, becoming a character across other dream worlds (inspired by Yume Nikki's manga adaptation). In the case that the patient's trauma worsens, their negative emotions distort them into an Uboa-esque creature.
|Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.|
After the "death" of Chie, she wakes up against her will due to the trauma connected to the events. Despite this, the end of the dream represents a resolution to her pains in real life, fulfilling the purpose of the dream world.
Some Effects change slightly if using an item while wearing the Effect (such as Medicine if drinking Coke or Sick if taking Colorful Pills). Chie can move faster by holding down the Shift key, so the use of a speed-boost Effect is not needed.
|Ragamuffin||Chie gains cat ears, representing her love for animals.|
|Nightmare||Chei becomes almost entirely black and red, representing a fear of negative situations. Wearing this effect can change the appearance of some locations.|
|Sick||Chie becomes sick, evidenced by her skin taking on a gray-blue tone. Taking the Colorful Pills causes her to change color. Wearing this effect can change the appearance of a location.|
