nostAlgic's Title Screen
nostAlgic is a Yume Nikki fangame created by TOM. It is known for its very light color scheme and for having a generally more optimistic take on a YN-based exploration game.
Dubbed "the anti-.flow", the relaxing music and relative lack of frightening elements, which are usually present in other fan games, allows the player to focus on the lighter side of dreams.
nostAlgic is a traditional fangame. Sleeping on the bed will take you to the dream world. From there, you can explore the various areas and collect effects. You interact with the notebook while you're awake to save.
A's dreams are rather light and childlike, meaning they possibly want to forget why they locked themself in and/or refuse to go out.
