Hello! I didn't originally plan on making a new thread for TLG but I decided to do it just because it would be terrible to not make the game accessible to everyone!

Here is the most recent version:

I do not know if I will continue this game as college and many other things are occupying my time, but keep a look out just in case!

Also! Thank you everyone who has ever made fanart, videos, pretty much anything to do with the game, I had no idea it would get such a good reception. Everything you guys have drawn really means a lot to me! <3

E-Mail: bleet@ymail.com

TLG has an official tumblr here: http://irenesmirror.tumblr.com
My personal tumblr: http://bombchutheragetroll.tumblr.com

Introducing New Irene:

Though I may not have worked on TLG in quite some time, there are changes planned! The most important is her sprite; I decided to depart from the typical Madotsuki sprite and use my own style, with the body and height parameters still based off of Mado’s.

Since Irene is in a mirror world and not a dream world, her eyes will be open! Her dress is also sleeveless now and she no longer has the high collar/scarf. She HAS, though, adopted black leggings and grey mary janes (I’ll draw out some concept art in a bit). I hope this is okay for those of you who have played and liked the first few versions of the game!


I actually really like the updated sprite for Irene! While sticking to Madotsuki's is nice it's also kind of limiting.

Also, I don't know how open you'd be to commentary or little suggestions about the game…


File: 1319004106992.png (107.12 KB, 475x900, ireneconceptwhatever.png)

All right! First official game art/concept art/whatever of Irene!

The pattern on her dress is called Houndstooth and though it’s my absolute favorite fabric pattern it is terrible to draw so omitting it is perfectly fine.

Also I can’t draw crowbars.

If you have anything you would like to say/report/whatever by all means go ahead, any and all input is super useful and appreciated!


File: 1319019543936.png (13.39 KB, 646x487, newarea2.png)

And here are some screenshots of a brand new area + brand new sprites. Also plan on adding a lot of dialogue, gonna try something new!

File: 1319019612704.png (13.62 KB, 646x487, newarea3.png)

more school


File: 1319019632653.png (13.97 KB, 646x487, newarea4.png)

and the nurse's office!


This dialog both starts and ends with two different vocatives awkwardly. Is that even grammatically correct? I recommend taking one of them out.


She looks like Lisa Garland from SH 1 :0



also, the teacher is called "mason"


i was wondering if anyone knew of any way to get this game running in crossover on a mac. this game looks really really neat i want to play it


File: 1319068652384.png (312.79 KB, 528x420, facelessghosts.png)

YEAH I KNOW I feel so stupid for leaving it in like that and I keep forgetting to take out a part of it. I will do it though I promise.

Here I'll upload some concept art to make up for my grammarbomb.


File: 1319068717391.png (321 KB, 571x384, effectbody.png)

If anyone can help with that that would be FANTASTIC, I'd hate for people to want to play it but their macs can't run it. :(


Yes it's 2k3, english.


Hey I'm glad to see that this project didn't get forgotten about! While I'm sad to see the YN style go (I'm a fan of the look) I have to say the new sprites look really nice still.

The dialog I'd have to get use to but I don't think would be too bad in these sort of games. Are you planning on keeping Irene a silent character then?


File: 1319095347716.png (152.15 KB, 652x429, butwhy.png)

Yeah I know, departing from the YN style was a bit nerve-wracking since, you know, this is a yume nikki fan game and I personally have no qualms with other games who use the same sprite style, but I felt like I just needed to branch out. So far the people on tumblr are pretty okay with it!

And no, actually I plan on Irene talking, making observations, etc. But aside from the intro and some future scenes, she will be silent. I just, considering that she's entering a mirror world instead of exploring her dreams for instance, I'd want her to have some sort of personality about it rather than taking it as if it were normal, like Mado and Sabi and etc etc do.

I'm going for a more linear feel, but there will still be lots of exploration and etc!


File: 1319173498355.png (7.64 KB, 192x192, EffectFaceSet1.png)

And here's the new, updated faceset including three brand new effects.


File: 1319339836362.png (175.11 KB, 638x618, TLGALBUMART1.png)

Here's some concept art and also I finally got a musician to help with the game!

Here's his very first track he's made for the game, including intro and outro:




I personally love that concept art of yours.



but what's with the colon?


I loved this game
Glad to see that it's back.


File: 1326158923921.png (57 KB, 558x600, tlgocto.png)

Just letting the board know a new update is -very- close. There won't be new worlds, but there will be a lot of additions I think a lot of people might find interesting!




I haven't played this game before, but it looks like a likely candidate for review (well, after the next update.)

I'm really digging it so far. It's got a lot of atmospheric areas, as well as some ones that are bizarre (in a good way). It's really hard to find this kind of thing, but I'd like to mention it in terms of the Apartments and the Dark Room in 2kki, the City, Sugar Hole, Pipes and Phone Poles, and Apartments in .flow.

As far as the worlds and exploration goes, it has a whole big lump of the stuff I like (interesting, realized worlds). My favourites so far are the complex where she lives and the gameboy world, which looks like something I'd have pre-sleep dreams about after playing lots of Pokemon. It's surreal and bizarre enough to make it interesting on its own; the edgewrapping actually helps cement this feeling into the area for me.


File: 1326337288408.png (11.26 KB, 320x240, titlescreen.png)

Finally! After almost a year of no change, an update has been finished.



Oh and PLEASE, if there are any bugs or glitches, mainly game breakers, let me know!


File: 1326341363394.png (112.22 KB, 832x740, mars1.png)

Ok I had a lot of errors getting the game running so here is an updated link that includes EVERYTHING NEEDED EVER (even the rm2k3 client!) since I also have a tumblr for it and a lot of people on there don't seem to have that.

This means the download will be a bit long. I apologize.



ah yes! i am very excited to play it aaaah :0



Spoilers I guess?

I. Honestly wasn't expecting that. I enjoyed this game before, and now… it's just improved like tenfold.

I don't know what I was expecting, but wow. That opening. Her actually having a nice little story. ALL THE REFERENCES IN THE PAINTINGS AND GRAVEYARD.

The Graveyard makes me worried. I still haven't figured out what that button does.

But yes, three effects in so far. Loving it. Still some glitches here and there, I think you've noticed them by now. Namely, the tinting not changing when you 'wake up' prematurely which I think can be fixed by having an event just make the bedroom have a constant tint or something. That, and whenever the System menu thing changes, like in the Gameboy world.

But man I am loving the story (was reminded of May at first), the atmosphere, the mirror, the amusing snark from Irene whenever she inspects something because I literally inspect everything I can find. None of the fauna have responded back to me so far sadly.

But yes just. Just wow I love it.



Stop making me feel bad about procrastinating on ever releasing my own fangame nyehhh.


File: 1326363128499.png (386.37 KB, 442x562, dream2.png)

Ok I have a REALLY BAD HISTORY about having glitched updates. :(

As far as I know, this final fix is as good as it'll ever get! This is it, I'm not fixing glitches anymore until it's time for v0.05

Here is the correct, fixed, slightly less large download:


Great game, i like the addition of a little back story, really sets the mood just right. Still some bugs here and there, like passability in the windy cave, but all in all, 5 thumbs up in the air.


Yes, I'm glad that you updated "The Looking Glass" because I really liked 0.03. I think it's an enormous plus that you added the intro and several real world locations because it definitely makes your game stand out. The mansion is creepy (I was constantly waiting for someone to pop out) and I got a bit scared despite the fact that I played in the morning. Now, waiting for the next version!



There's my overly long marriage propos—I-I mean, review of the game!


First off let me post updated contact info:
E-Mail: bleet@ymail.com
Skype: bombchuboom
MSN: azhoozr@msn.com
TLG has an official tumblr here: http://irenesmirror.tumblr.com
My personal tumblr: http://gutsygumshoe.tumblr.com

Thank you very much! I knew I was taking a huge risk, doing what I did with my game. The only other game I know of that went for a similar feel was May, as you said, and really it was that game that helped me realize what I wanted to do with TLG. But since May is such a pretty, cute, and appealing game, I was unsure for a long time if mine would meet the standard it set!

Your reVIEW OMG. Thank you so much for it wow I am just blown away by it! I didn't expect this; then again I was the one who was slaving away at it and getting bent out of shape about glitches and bugs (which still occur sadly) so this review was a wonderful pick-me-up, thank you so much. :'3


File: 1326408366576.png (21.26 KB, 639x484, reference.png)

Ooh, a reference to my game, hehe.

And I like the game a lot, I actually like it more than the previous version, because before everything was so confusing (I got lost very easily). In the new version everything is interactive and stuff. Good job, even though the ominous feeling that YN fangames usually have was lost a little in this version, it makes up for it in cuteness.


File: 1326410978100.bmp (289.83 KB, 351x281, irenesnow.bmp)

It's snowing! :D

Just a little bug. Using the compact mirror doesn't turn off weather effects. Easy fix, though.


File: 1326430838411.png (24.71 KB, 640x480, tombstone.png)

Did I ever tell you how much I love you? Because I do <3333

This game feeds in unearthly urge to inspect everything. I can't wait to to find that crowbar now. I was a little leery of text but seeing it in action is absolutely lovely. I've only got as far as getting the roller-blades again but I'm incredibly impressed all over again.


Mishka, I haven't read your whole review of The Looking Glass (cus I try to avoid spoilers about anything when I can), but that bit about Irene having observations for almost every object sounds like a dialogue/text hunter's dream. (@_@)

I was already going to check out The Looking Glass someday, but now I MUST check it out…soon

ps. This game sounds great.



It's alright, the reviews don't really say much about the game narratives themselves. The only stuff I tell you is stuff you already know from the introductory sequence.


Ah, okay then. I'm really weird when it comes to reviews; sometimes I don't even want to know what gameplay is like if I think a game looks interesting enough. XD


I got it running on Linux, so it would probably work on a Mac, too. I did have some problems, which I'm not sure if they're the game or my system. The game is incredibly laggy in Irene's bedroom, there's no sound (that's probably me), and after I used the Yeti effect, Irene became stuck facing in the same direction.
Now, the bug report's outta the way, I love the game so far. I like that I can look at things and Irene has something to say about them. I like that Irene talks, in general. I like the art in the intro. I expect great things from the finished game. Keep up the good work!


Okay, I just started the game up again and reloaded my save, and Irene's still stuck facing downwards, and I can't leave her room! She'll starve!


I found a couple bugs.

The first is that attempting to go through a door in the apartment world after killing any of the shades there with the crowbar seems to freeze the game. I was thinking it might've been due to the blood splatter that appears after killing, so I checked to see if it freezes if I unquip the crowbar between killing and going through the door… and it still did. That doesn't exactly rule out the blood splatter as being a possible cause of the freeze. Who knows, though.

The second bug was that I noticed that if you walk behind the bookshelves in the top end of the school's Library, instead of the bookshelf going completely over your sprite, your head ends up going over the bookshelf's sprite, so it looks like you have your head stuck through the bookshelf. Looks kinda neat, but probably something you wanna fix, even so.


File: 1326584340448.png (10.47 KB, 640x477, Screenshot2.png)

This dialogue seems cumbersome to me. I think it would be better if she said something like, "You seem fine, but you should get some rest."


Hi ok so I cannot work on the game for probably the next couple of weeks. I had to send in my computer to get some cosmetic stuff repaired, so right now I am out of commission. I was planning on addressing all of those glitches but will not be able to until I get it back. :(


AAAAARGH, I still can't figure out what do the twin tombstones in the house do… That has to be the fangame with the most potential I've seen, and also very original and innovative. Hope to see more soon.



Agree that it's a bit cumbersome, but I don't think it should be shortened to that extent either. I think the main issue's that there are a couple completely unnecessary words. It could be something like, "Well, you seem to be fine, if a bit physically tired." Then the second sentence could either be left as-is, or it could be changed to something like "You seem quite healthy otherwise, though." or, "I'm sure you'll feel better after a good night's sleep."


you trigger the switch on both tombstones, then return to the first floor and enter whichever middle door isn't boarded up. There should be a pair of double-doors here that were previously boarded up, but can now be entered due to those switches you triggered.


Hey, Megaupload has been taken off the market .. and I'm too late.. So Does anyone have another download link I could use (preferably Mediafire)?



Here you go, I just finished uploading it.



Does anyone have v0.03 of this? I want to download it, but there's only Megaupload links to it - could someone put it up on Mediafire, please?


This is truly amazing, of the little I have played so far it has taken my heart. Best fangame imo right now.


Love this game… but, do I need the crowbar to get to Faceless? Which means I need the lamp like thing… so… what corner of the Pokemon forest is that in?


Starting from the forest entrance (the one near the Gameboy entry): Go right. Keep going along the path until you reach a branching path. Go left, and keep going until you reach another branching path. Finally, go left again, and follow the path all the way to the effect.

> this game
Since I'm posting, I'll just take the time to say; "THIS GAME IS AWESOOOOME!!!".
I finally got to play it a couple of weeks ago, and it was really something. I'm hoping for more "observations" in future updates; I just love those observations. X3


If I kill anything it freezes a few seconds right after.


Still wanting someone to do this please


Wait disregard this now, I asked bleet on his tumblr


A bugfix + tiny update and older version 0.03 will be uploaded and linked shortly.

All glaring issues should be fixed and if not well I'm not known for releasing pristine updates now, hm? :B



was the crowbar freezing one of the glitches that's supposed to be fixed? Cause I noticed that still happening at spots. I ended up testing a bit more this time though, so results of that below.

Also, one thing to note here is that when I say "freeze", I don't mean the whole game freezing. It's just being unable to move Irene or open the menu.

First, I tried killing an enemy in the debug room, then tried using the door back to Irene's room, which made the game freeze.

Second, I tried killing an NPC inside one of the apartment rooms, then tried exiting through the door, which made the game freeze. I then reloaded and returned, then killed the NPC a second time, but this time, I exited by pushing '9' to wake up, which ended up working fine, without any freeze or other issues.

I then tried killing an NPC in the neon world, then exiting the door back to the nexus, which worked perfectly fine.

Lastly, I went to the snow world, found the Yeti, killed it, then went back to the nexus door and exited, which also worked fine.

When testing all this, I also noticed that if I switched to the rollerblades after killing an NPC, then that'll also cause a freeze. Even if you switch effects multiple times before switching to the rollerblades, it still seems to happen, though if you transition to a different screen first, then switching will no longer freeze you. I also found out that while in that frozen state, pushing the 9 key to wake up still works to teleport you, and that things went back to normal after doing so.

This made me wonder if pushing 9 to teleport also worked during those door freezes, so I tried at the apartments, and it ended up half-working. Basically what happened was that I killed the NPC, opened the door and froze, then pushed 9 to teleport, and this caused the teleport animation to play, but instead of teleporting, I went through the door, and was unfrozen. Shortly after going through the door, the 'screen blur' effect from teleporting ended up displaying, but I didn't actually telport. I also noticed that If I went back to one of the NPCs in an apartment and killed them right after that and tried exiting, then the freeze no longer happened for some reason.

Well, that's all I've got. I know it's kinda long, but maybe it'll be helpful in figuring out what the cause of these freezes is.


Version 0.04.1 (bugfix, area update):

Everything should work better but keep on the lookout for glitches!

As a bonus, here is the link to the older version of the game that used Madotsuki-styled sprites!:


Also, how the heck did my post get above Bleet's? I notice my post is apparently listed as being posted 1 minute before yours, but that can't be accurate, since I read Bleet's post well before making mine.

I wonder if the time listing of our posts goes off our computer clocks or something silly like that.


I can honestly say I have no idea why it freezes like that. I took out killing in the apartment complex but knowing that the rollerblades make it freeze too really confuses me.

I do know that the glitch works on maps with teleports that move the player around the map, instead of moving to a new area. The apartment complex is all one big map. All I can think of is maybe the event is still "running" when the character is killed, which is why the game freezes when switching to other events.

The funny thing is that the killing event in the mansion works just fine; Irene does not freeze, rollerblades or teleporting, so perhaps there's something in that code that can help with this other situation.

Thanks for being really in depth about it. I was hoping simply taking out the killing would solve it and to be honest reading that it still didn't upset me a lot! But you've made me start thinking about it seriously and perhaps there IS a solution and I'll geton that as quickly as possible. Thank you! :)


Thank you so much!!


I download the latest version, and every time I go in her room (while shes 'awake') It's slow and laggy as hell. Didn't think it was possible for these kind of games.

But other than that, it's a beautifully done game~


Will you tell what all is new in the newest update? I don't want to delete the one I already have to start over if it doesn't really have anything new. Otherwise, i'll just wait for one that does. (unl


I have no idea what it was supposed to be that was after my last sentence.


I've fixed some glitches and added a new explorable area, though it is quite small and if you don't really mind the old glitches you do not have to download it. :]


I don't really like the new graphics of the newest version… the Madotsuki sprites look a lot cuter. But that's my only gripe - I really love this game. <3


Hey, when i try to get the effect from the glowstick, it says: "Sorry
i can't give you an effect at the
moment. :( "

have this happend to anyone?
how to get the effect then?



Since most of the changes between this version and the last weren't all that big, you could -probably- copy and paste your save files from the last version into the new version without any issues. Doing so has caused no problems for me so far. RPGmaker savefiles are the files named "Save01.lsd" "Save02.lsd" and so on.


I'm pretty sure that means the effect it gives isn't implemented into the game yet.


File: 1328509986587.png (53.51 KB, 400x411, Annalise.png)

Ok, I didn't know exactly where to put this so it'll just stay in my thread; I am planning on making a small side game called Annalise. I also plan on using madotsuki sprites because I think it'll fit better with what I'm trying to do.

It's not going to be very huge or anything, it's more of an experimental little thing really. Just thought of letting /fg/ know about it.



Thank you so much.


Sounds interesting. I'm still looking forward to the next version of The Looking Glass, buy I'm definitely looking forward to this "experiment" too.
Care to share any details about it at the moment?


Anybody notice giygas in irene's wallpaper?


I can't download anything for now, but I can't wait to download when I can. I only played an extremely old version of the game when the graphics were completely different and there was no dialogue, so, it'll be exciting to play something really new.


File: 1331766227210.png (295.84 KB, 600x800, ireneface.png)

Hello so, even though the game is small, I DID make a little effect guide + commentary and it can be viewed here:

The game is still being worked on and developed but it's taking quite some time, so thank you for your patience!


If patience helps make this game, then I better start sending people to the hospital. =3

Bad joke. >.<
I think I'll watch that guide, just for fun. It will be like playing the game without my hands. XD

…I'm in bad comedy mode. (l_I)


Okay, I finally watched the Effect Guide. For what it's worth, I like the commentary.

You mentioned in the video that there will be additions to the town……I am hyped.


File: 1333389652596.png (132.07 KB, 459x800, nonotes.png)

I haven't made any good TLG art as of late so here have this thing I drew a bit ago instead.

Just a quick update to reassure everyone that yes the game is still being worked on and many new things are being added on. Probably the best thing out of what I've done so far is finally add a "Get Effect" box instead of the massive message box haha.

Other things have been added such as effect animations, new sprites, some map color palette changes, new areas to explore and interact with, computer interactivity, etc!

When I finally get some work done on the new MAIN worlds I plan on adding is when an update should be coming. I'll let everyone know when that time is. :)

Also, as always, thank you for your patience. :'3

Hello, just dropping in to show what Irene's cybot effect looks like: it's modified from Marina Liteyears' design in the Mischief Makers game since her thighs make no sense to me.

In other news, production is going very well and I picked up a couple music volunteers and an artist friend of mine to help as well. A major milestone was covered last night so development should be picking up the pace!


File: 1334389938485.png (6.79 KB, 297x617, irenetalk.png)

Ok so I’ve finally decided to announce than an update will most definitely happen.


I’m aiming for some time this week. I still have OCD about certain things but I really just need to ship this off to you guys. The longer I wait the worse I feel about leaving you all in the dark and the longer it takes for me to finish stuff, so if I get a quick update out I think that’ll ease my mind for a bit and I’ll be able to focus more!


If you added stuff to the town, I will probably explode.
I hope I can make some time to play it when it comes out.


File: 1334618167819.gif (88.16 KB, 669x600, VERSION5.gif)



Not as much new stuff was added as I would have liked but oh well! Here’s v0.05, enjoy!

Be sure to talk to Irene’s classmates a lot ok? :33

Also if you encounter any glitches or errors be sure to tell me!

(also this ←- picture animates :33 )


Awesome! I will play it as soon as I can!


What?! new stuff in the intro?! I love the intro!
I will be looking forward to that.

I guess I'll do the same thing as >>5178


Ok first bugfix is already up, if you snagged the game before this it's ok (just don't press shift in the pokemon world or while on the computer):



man i feel so dumb
downloads are down until a bit later yet again
i really should just, stop thinking i'm such a hotshot and get some beta testers goodness gracious


File: 1334629457850.png (34.82 KB, 631x541, BUGFIXING.png)


Haven't tried the latest bug fixes, but some things I've noticed other than the shift stuff:
-Glowstick effect remains permanent until leaving mirror.
-Some really weird glitch happened to me where the Rollerblades remained in effect, keeping the same speed. Bicycle or Rollerblades again make Irene even faster.
-Not sure if related to the glitch above, but when I kill too many shadow NPCs in the town, I freeze and cannot do anything but wake up. Then when messing with the bike, I accidentally activated sticky keys, it happened, and trying to wake up would just make a negative noise, causing me to just close the game. Really weird. Just noticed it was mentioned before too, so, huh.
-The Trench menu vanished after trying it out once.

Other than that it seems really solid. Noticed a lot of Homestuck references this time, interesting touch. Also I love what you did with the Gameboy Pokemon world so much. Though getting access to the long hair did make me return to normal, not sure if that was fixed in the shift update or not.

Also when I got to the end of the sewer area I was just like… what. That part, oh god.


ok here's the sitch on what i've done so far:

-since the glowstick messes with screen tinting, and some of the areas still do screen tinting, and i was more concerned about those than others, it won't return to normal unless you're in the ocean or the nexus, or unequipping it manually. this was laziness on my part so i will work on it now since i figured out the problem (but like i said was too lazy to fix it)
-i encountered that problem too sometimes during testing, but from what i had listed in the common event section, it shouldn't logically be happening, and would not repeat itself if i actively tried to get it to happen again. not too sure what that is just yet
-there might be some shadow npcs left over that i didn't fix with the crowbar event. laziness again, my bad, i will fix them all shortly
-the bike effect cannot 9 out but you can unequip it to do so
-found the variable problem and fixed it
-the long hair effect was added in on last notice so i completely forgot about that, thank you for bringing it up, i've fixed it

i'll go ahead and tend to these bugs and such! best to squash them out now rather than later


File: 1334642805317.png (16.12 KB, 382x530, buhhiyjhty.png)

ok here's a new new bugfix
hoping this is somewhat better oh goodness i'm starting to feel silly


File: 1334678907939.png (Spoiler Image, 22.91 KB, 637x477, nope nope nope nope.png)

I love this update in so many ways. So happy the Pokemon world is finally usable. Also pic fucking scared me, damn thing came out of nowhere ;w;

I adore the undersea additions. How did you know I love eels and angler fish <3


File: 1334786328636.png (Spoiler Image, 9.99 KB, 320x240, face10.png)

I read on TLG's tumblr something about going inside his room during the faceless event. My exact sentiments going in were "nopenopenopenopeFUCK!" especially when pic happened

but I enjoy what happened after this event. Is this the kind of linearity you were talking about some time before?

Also is panda effect ever going to be a thing that comes back (because that was a thing in the original right or am I delusional?)

Also witch effect: good effect, best effect

the more I look at my last post the more I think that image didn't need to be spoilered :/

anyway now I'll politely stop spamming your thread <3


Yes, that is what I was talking about! It's an example of how I plan on moving the story along without inhibiting people from exploring.

Also lol that pesky panda effect. In the original she carried around her panda plush, yes, but I removed it back then since I didn't know how to code it correctly. I do now so I COULD put it back but I don't know if I want to haha.

OK, I haven't played the new version that much yet, but I wanted to say that I really like the Pokemon world. And Irene's Pokesprite is adorable.


File: 1335688927412.png (25.65 KB, 1919x476, thelookingglass-1.png)

Okay, here are the bugs I found in the v0.05 bug fix 2:

1. Lisa dialogue: "But to be on the safe side, I'm going to a
you to come back tommorow ok?". I should be "ask you to come back";
it must have gotten cut off somehow.
2. Pic#1, Passability glitch outside school entrance.
3. Same area as 2, you can walk below the trees (wasn't like that in version 0.04).
4. Pic#2, House World, library - one spot on a shelf is missing the dialogue box (I don't think it's supposed to).
5. Pic#3, Apartment World - room 207 teleports you to the outside of room 202; the door for 207 remains open after this too, if you go back to check it.
6. You can obtain infinite flashlight effects from the flashlight get.
7. Effect glitch where Irene's sprite doesn't change back to normal when going through the big mirror, if you have an effect equipped (not sure if it's every effect).
8. Apartment World - If you use the peek hole for Room 202 (Behind The Walls) for a second time before leaving, Irene still asks if the Faceless Man can see her, even though he is clearly gone.
9. Apartment World - The door to exit area 1A doesn't have an animation for opening (same hall where room 202 is).
10. Sewers - When you leave the End of the sewers, the lights will be on (even without the flashlight) in the next room until you walk to the tile before the first light.
11. House World - Child Ghost on the right side of mansion says "no bit deal" (probably supposed to be "no big deal").
12. Switching from the Rollerblades (or Bike) to the White Queen will glitch your speed; if you keep switching them, you can keep getting faster. The only way to reset your speed is to examine the <3.txt on Irene's computer.
13. After the part where Vincent talks to Irene outside the school, if you go back into the school and come out, the event will happen again.
14. When you buy the bike effect, you receive 2 rather than 1.

Lag Glitches:
note: I'm not sure if these are only happening on my computer or not, since no one else has mentioned them yet.
15. Apartment World - For some reason, the dark areas in the basement (starting at Basement A) are a little laggy, unless you turn on your flashlight. This seems to be the case for all areas where you need the flashlight; except the sewers, where it's only if you equip the flashlight and have it turned off.
16. Pokeymans World is extremely laggy. I assume the reason is the same as in another fangame (Mewn), and if it is, I know how to fix it myself (if this is only happening to me; nobody else mentioned it in the Mewn thread). The problem is, I can't seem to find which event causes the Game Boy Color border to appear on screen.

Anyways, enjoyable as always. From what I could see in Pokeymans world, I think an entire horror game should be made in that style; It's really interesting, not to mention nostalgic, but it also has an unsettling feeling to it.
Also, story progression is something I'm looking forward to in the game overall.


Thank you for such a good list! I tackled all of the problems and I am concerned about the lag issues as well.

It has to do with the border in the pokemon world and the "light" in the dark areas being a continually overlaid picture.

I'm not quite sure how to fix them quite yet, as in if running a parallel process is the problem or not. Might have to reroute flashlight interaction to a common event slot too, hm…


Your welcome!

So, about the GBC border for Pokeymans World, I made a post before about one way to fix it. The post was >>3782 . Check it out and see if it helps.
I'm not sure if something similar would work for the flashlight's light though.


You could also put an "erase event" command after the show picture (if that's how you programmed it), it'll keep you from having to mod EVERY entrance/exit to PKMN world to show a picture. (I'm assuming it's a parallel process event?)


Excuse me, but… Where can I find the Cybot Effect?


You can only acquire the Cybot effect from the green haired robot woman in the Apartments if she is standing and walking around, kind of like Oreko in .flow.

She can be found either in the lobby or in her room on the first floor, 106.


I'm just waiting for the next version, and… Maybe new events like the Kaokai guy(Apartment murder)?


hey boom, can you update your youtube walkthrough?


Sure can! I'll make it soon.
The next version won't be up for a while, thank you for your patience though! :3


Honestly, your game is pretty good. It has some sweet worlds, and… The event on Inverted Apartments just scared me. For real. Not mentioning the Graveyard World… That place is so well-crafted I'd spend hours and hours walking around and talking into the ghosts just for fun. Seriously.

Just a glitch I've found. At GBC world, when you go back to the start of the area from the forest, Irene gets stuck in a black screen, and can only teleport back with the mirror.


here is the new effect guide!


you are awesome :3
I love everything about this game.


File: 1335958439763.jpg (5.61 KB, 163x139, wetldud.jpg)

ohwait, what bout this one?
I was looking for it so long and i got nothing.
also, as i comment your video I still 'have not enough money' for a bike D:


The Alice effect is cosmetic right now, but it has a much bigger purpose! So until it is coded right, it stays in the Debug room only! Unfortunately, you cannot find the effect in-game.

If you want it, you can get it, and you can wear it just fine! But it is not "official".

Also, you need 1000$ to buy the bike. You get money by killing NPCs.

I'm glad you like the game, thank you for being so kind about it. :3

Hello, just here to post some fanart for your game! I haven't expressed how much I love your game yet (or at least I don't remember expressing it)! Even though the Alice effect is just cosmetic, I still love it.
Though sorry for my *coughcrappy* attempt at drawing Irene. Keep up the good work! :)


Sir, you post spoilers by doing double asterisks before and after the spoiler in this chan. You failed.

I guess I might do a YN fangame marathon today, so I'll be playing this. I'll let you know if the Board of Fangames Approval is content.



Sorry about that, I didn't know. I would delete the post, but I didn't assign a password.

Still, it'd be nice if I could get an answer re:the dead body in the sewer. If there's something more to do in that room, I can't seem to figure it out.


I did it for you, hope you don't mind.
I never got to it myself so I can't really help you with that, unfortunately :<


File: 1336890000342.png (31.36 KB, 1280x479, thelookingglass-2.png)

Here's a couple more glitches (if you haven't found them yet):

- 1. (left pic) I'm not sure if this is intended at all, but the Octopus effect seems to be able to bypass a lot of tiles that you shouldn't be able to walk on. Pictured is just one area that only the Octopus effect can go. I haven't checked everywhere, but it seems this "glitch" may be exclusive to the sewers (including the entrance, where there are lots of things to climb over with the Octopus effect).
- 2. (right pic) Another thing about the Octopus effect, is that these pipes appear to be in front of Irene, rather than behind her. Again, apparently only in the Octopus effect. I don't know if those are the only things that are like this.

I think these passability glitches probably have something to do with the "[Octo]" tilesets.

Looking at the game in RPG Maker: it doesn't appear that there is anything else to see in that area at the moment (other than the little bit of text you get).


just wanted to comment and say, oh my god, the chess world is absolutely heartbreaking. the music and general atmosphere is just… wow. amazing job. i just want to hug the queen REALLY BADLY… i felt this way in homestuck too, haha. CHESS FEELS

are you planning to put more in that world?


yeah i am planning on doing more with it haha, i'm planning on doing more with about everything! but recently i lost all of my work files for the game so production is gonna be super slow again.

i'm glad you like the game! and to be honest the king and queen weren't originally going to be references to homestuck in particular but i decided hey why not! :3

I noticed a bug.

The door in front of Irene was barricaded, I clicked it 4-5 times, left the room and came back, bam, the barricade was gone.

Just downloaded, and I'm liking this so far. Keep up the good work!


File: 1339085953085.png (11.23 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n2.png)

So I walked to the left and I'm pretty sure this door was not barricaded.

Did the barricade from before move here?


File: 1339086009245.png (10.96 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n3.png)

I repeated the process from before and the barricade disappeared again.

I have no idea what is going on.


File: 1339086179809.png (11.78 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n4.png)

Eehh? Now the barricade is here again.

I just realized that depending on the door you go through, different door is barricaded. Glorious.

I got really confused back there.


File: 1339087947996.png (17.05 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n5.png)

I might be making a retard out of myself again, but I'll post this anyway.

Is this intentional?


File: 1339094234159.png (19.6 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n6.png)

>Rollerblade around the town.
>Enter building in picture.
>Talk with the guy.
>Start to test every effect to get a response out of the flashing girl.
>Use White Queen effect.
>Use Crowbar effect.
>Irene runs at Rollerblade speed while wearing the Crowbar.
>Use Rollerblade effect again.
>Irene runs at 2x Rollerblade speed.
>Unequip Rollerblades.
>Irene still runs at Rollerblade speed.
>Use mirror.
>Irene runs at rollerblade speed in real world.
I wonder if I can stack this bug like 10 times to run at supersanic speeds.


File: 1339094713591.png (35.16 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n7.png)

What has science done! It works!

It seems that the rollerblade stacking stops at about 5 times.

I'm lazy so I'm not going to upload it on youtube, but to give some idea, Irene can run the street in picture related in 5 seconds.


File: 1339094785039.png (23.59 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n8.png)


The hyperspeed is even on the computer screen!

I can't click the save button because it's going too fast.


File: 1339136180780.png (23.69 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n9.png)

I second these.

There are more tiles that you can walk on with the octopus effect.

You can also access the door from the wall.

You can walk everywhere in the water.

After the first encounter with the blonde tall guy, back in the school, I had Long Hair effect available for some reason.
When equipping you lost your school uniform and got your ordinary clothes on.
When disabling Long Hair effect you don't get the uniform back.

Somewhere in this thread was mentioned that you receive 2 bikes instead of one. This also happened.

And here is the aftermath:
I have my second bike in Pokemon World.


File: 1339138526912.png (18.21 KB, 640x480, nimet&#246;n11.png)

And here is my second Long Hair effect.

I can't recreate that. I simply used the effect button and it transformed into the regular sprite sitting down.

I feel very selfish and retarded for posting so much.



Nothing selfish about pointing out bugs or potential issues. I'd figure most developers would want that sort of thing, actually.


File: 1339186249191.png (10.8 KB, 289x360, 120411-111833.png)

No there indeed isn't anything wrong with it and I appreciate the enthusiasm to bug report!

I'm aware of most of these issues, though I guess I should have made it clear that I am about 90% more active on the devblog than here and I have talked to tons of people pointing out bugs in the game. (since tumblr is generally filled with more receptive people than uboa ever is)

But still! Thank you very much for all of your help and I'll be sure to double check if the bugs are still there.


Loved the game. Technically and graphics wise it goes above and beyond all YN fangames, and YN itself. Text interactions flow very well too. All it needs now is more content :D


Just tried the game out today after ignoring this thread for a while. Got a pleasant surprise from it. Really great to see a game with so much promise like this, please don't let the project die because I'd love to see how the story ends and what else you have planned for this game.

At first I had my doubts about the flavor text, but I love it. The humor feels very much like it came from the Mother series or something, and since I like interacting with everything it really makes me chuckle a lot more than I should be at times. You worked in text in a way that worked.


I like your Zelda inspiration!

There is now a Chinese translation of The Looking Glass!

The website for it is here http://yumenikki.info/archives/the-looking-glass/

So excited oh my goodness.


Credit for all of this amazing work (forgot to add it in the other post oops):

Translation: shirleycrow
Testing: 拼图君 小岛 shirleycrow
Website: 小岛


I can't access the computer in this. When I start the computer it immediately closes. Help?


Fixed after a restart. Probably RPG maker derping.


This game. Oh god this game.
I love it so much.

But for some god awful reason the game always lags for me in the Pokemon world. I can't get the crowbar because of the extreme amount of lag.

But otherwise I love it all so far. c: One of my top favorites for sure.


Would anyone be so kind as to link me to a rpgmaker 2003 runtime files for this? I can only find the runtime for the newest version. I really want to check this out. Looks amazing.


File: 1354917617280.jpg (1.57 MB, 2448x3228, redpad.jpg)


I can't get to the latest download because the tumblr has a password?



I'm not 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure the link in >>5187 is the most recent version.


Thank you!


I am sorry, I forgot to alert this thread of the new tumblr!

You can find the devblog and pages of the games I have made at the new tumblr here:



Just wanted to say this fangame is really really good, enough to stand alongside Yume Nikki, and .flow.

Awesome work!


File: 1390413922965.png (21.73 KB, 636x476, rmeme.png)

I've been updating the tumblr, but I decided I should make an official post here since uboa is where this game started.

TLG is getting a major remake. This is a screenshot of the most recent changes, with a lot more to go. A lot of things have changed and still need to be changed. I'm not sure if the end result will be accepted as a fangame anymore, either. Its name will change and there's just a lot that will be different. I will say that there won't be a nexus anymore, and I'm not even sure if it will have effects. It'll be very different and I think it's up to uboa and everyone in general where they think the game should go.

However I will keep the old version up for everyone to download, I'm just giving everyone a heads up about the direction the game is going in.


Why would it be up to "everyone in general" how your game will turn out?
Taking cues from others is fine, but I wouldn't listen too much to other people if I were you.

I liked the old faces more. These look like something from Cartoon Network.


By where the game goes, I meant if the thread will stay in fg or move to other games or something.

Also I really appreciate that you liked the old talksprites! However they were in dire need of an upgrade. They still reflect some of the old style, , especially in the eyes, but are much cleaner and expressive now, which is very important for what I'm going to do with the game.



Damn, bleet, to be honest, TLG is my favorite YNFG ever, Irene is my favorite dream ever, to my eyes, TLG never needed those changes, it was already perfect, the sprites, the talking sprites too etc. we just needed an ending.

I understand as a gamedev, we are never satisfied with our creations, and of course its your game, you can do the changes you want, but, i was really in love with the old version, i dont like the new changes at all…

i will still support TLG, and you, and play the new version all the way, but it's not the TLG i love.


why did you reply to a 2 year post for a dead game
