Hey, it's not an apartment this time!
Answered Prayers is a Yume Nikki fangame developed by a western developer named Klaufir. Like Yume Nikki, exploration and surrealism are prevalent features. But unlike Yume Nikki and most of its fangames, the game is notably Lighter and Softer, featuring minimal blood or gore and very few real horror elements.

You play as Fluorette, a young girl who has run away from home and is taking refuge from a large rainstorm inside an odd shrine. Praying at the altar allows her to enter a mystical Spirit Realm full of mythical beings and supernatural creatures.

The game is notably short, containing four areas and twelve effects (or Prayers). The first version was released in 2010 and the latest was released in 2013. The game is currently on hiatus until further notice, but is still available for download here.


Answered Prayers provides examples of

  • Artificial Stupidity: The bloody-faced priestesses that represent the primary chasers don't have very good AI, they only chase you when you're directly in front of them and have a hard time going around corners.
  • Call a Hit Point a "Smeerp": The dream world is called the "Spirit World" and the effects are called "Prayers"
  • Get Out!: Finding all the effects makes a spirit appear in the nexus, who tells you to leave. That's the closest thing to an ending this game currently has.
  • Retro Universe: Much like the other games having famicom worlds, this game features a gameboy world
  • Scenery Porn: What the game lacks in horror it makes up for in visuals
  • The Maze: A staple for any Yume Nikki fangame is the annoying maze filled with chasers. This game is no better.
