OverviewEdit

Ultra Violet is another Yume Nikki fan-game produced by gozo-ropp (Pixiv).

It revolves around a young girl known as Sometsuki who explores her dreams while sleeping; she also appears to be a sleep-walker according to the writing "Sleep-Walker" (夢遊病) next to her name. Like many other protagonists, attempting to leave her room just results of a quick shake of the head and some sounds.

Ultra Violet strays on the lighter side of the spectrum - one of the primary visual motifs being rabbits, for example -- with the exception of a handful of violent or suspenseful areas.

GameplayEdit

Ultra Violet follows the traditional style of the genre, consisting of exploration and effect-hunting, vending machines (and buyable effects/features), but in addition plays up the collectibility of selectable menu skins, an aspect only briefly touched upon by other games.

Menus:

  1. Violet - Default menu.
  2. Silver - Another starting menu on the computer.
  3. Monochrome - Another starting menu from the computer.
  4. Orange - A checkered orange menu with white font.
  5. Cookie - A pattern composed of cookies on a violet background.
  6. Hexe - (Hexe means "witch" in German) An arabesque menu in tan.
  7. Hexe Violett - An arabesque menu in lavender.
  8. Old black - A black base menu with white font. The menu which is used in Famicom world.
  9. Old blue - A blue base menu with white font.
  10. Violet II - A checkered violet menu, another starting menu on the computer.
  11. Green - A checkered green menu with white font.


The protagonist saves via the computer with a movable cursor, similar to those in The Looking Glass and Me. Additionally, from here the player can select from various menus and play a mini-game. Like Yume Nikki, in the dream world, sitting on Sometsuki's rolling chair and pressing the interact key while sitting facing the computer will allow you to move about in her chair! Unlike Yume Nikki, the chair does not reduce your speed at all, but you are unable to use effects until you return the chair.

PlotEdit

Not much is know about why Sometsuki refuses to go outside, or much about her dreams, but they are rather light, (except for a few worlds and some events) so it is possible there is something she wants to escape from, or doesn't want to face (similar to Lcd Dem's plot). However, the game is still at v0.04, no endings have been implemented yet, and a lot more events will most likely be in later versions of the game.

EffectsEdit

Name Image Description
Rabbit (うさぎ)
UvEff1
Sometsuki grows white rabbit ears and a tail. Pressing SHIFT turns Sometsuki into a small albino rabbit that increases her speed. When in Famicom World, the rabbit has violet eyes instead of red ones. Most NPCs will follow you around or get excited when this effect is equipped.
Headless (くびなし)
UvEff7
Sometsuki's head is missing. Pressing SHIFT toggles the neck bloody/not bloody. While you will fail to wake up in the "clean" neck form, trying to wake up in the bloody form makes Sometsuki pinch the remains of her neck instead of her cheeks.
Magician (まほうつかい)
UvEff5
Sometsuki wears a witch's robe and her hair becomes two braids. Pressing SHIFT lets her ride her broomstick which increases her speed. Also used for the witch flight event.
Lampost (ほうでんとう)
UvEff8
Sometsuki's head becomes a lampost head. Pressing SHIFT switches the light on to a soft green-blue (lavender in Famicom World), and other lamposts that are off will switch on. 
Nail Hammer (ネイルハンマー)
UvEff2
Sometsuki carries a hammer which servers as her weapon. Unlike most games, in order to actually use the weapon you will need to press SHIFT so Sometsuki swiches to her "attack" pose. Most NPC's will try to avoid you when this effect is equipped.
Cake (ケーキ)
UvEff3
Sometsuki becomes a walking slice of strawberry shortcake. Pressing SHIFT causes her to put the cake on the ground, hiding her feet. She cannot move till you press SHIFT again. Certain NPCs will follow you around when this effect is equipped.
Coat and Muffler (コートとマフラー)
UvEff4
Sometsuki bundles up in a brown winter coat, a striped scarf and gloves. Certain NPCs will follow you around when this effect is equipped.
Egg (たまご)
UvEff10
Sometsuki becomes a walking egg, with only her face peeking though a cracked face in the middle. Pressing SHIFT closes up the egg, and warps you back to the nexus.
Android (アンドロイド)
UvEff9
Sometsuki becomes an android. Certain NPCs will follow you around when this effect is equipped.
Short Hair (ショートヘアー)
UvEff6
Sometsuki's hair is cut short.
Miko (みこ)
UvEff13
Sometsuki dresses as a shrine maiden.
Shikkenken (しっけんけん)
UvEff11
Sometsuki becomes a winter youkai. Her feet are bound by the cold, so she hops very slowly. She wears a blue yukata and can make it snow with the SHIFT key. Certain NPCs will follow you around when this effect is equipped.
Ribbons/Pigtails

(リボン)

UvEff12
UvEff12v2
Gives Sometsuki cute pigtails tied with ribbons. 

The style of this effect has been changed since version 0.03, and now you are able set the style you prefer (low pigtails or high pigtails) through Sometsuki's PC.

Sea Hare (アメフラシ)
UvEff14
Sometsuki becomes a violet sea hare (sea slug). Pressing SHIFT when on land makes her release a small pink cloud and it starts to rain. Pressing SHIFT when underwater just causes her to make a sound. Certain NPCs will follow you around when this effect is equipped.

According to ver0.04 Readme file, there is currently one unreachable effect - Spider (くも). UvEff15

Pseudo Effects:

Dream Diary - Additionally, another "effect" can be purchased from the Supermarket for 1000 coins: the ability to save inside the dream. The easiest way to procure sufficient funds for the purchase is to repeatedly murder the shopkeeper and raid the cash registers. (Though other ways of gaining money are still available, such as searching for coins or killing NPCs.)

Technical DifficultiesEdit

There is a known issue where downloading the game under the English locale will cause all of the files to be improperly named, resulting in the game being completely unplayable. To mitigate this issue, potential players must first set their locale to Japanese (not through AppLocale, but through the Windows Control Panel) and then download and run the game.
