More ISOs, public email and website update

During our search, we've acquired a number of magazine discs that could potentially contain old versions of Yume Nikki. As you may know, some of them did, but there also were some others that didn't. For archival purposes, we have uploaded some of the ones we have, for despite not having Yume Nikki, they still contain plenty of software and games from the 2000s that many could find interesting.

Among them, FreewareAlmanac2005 is noteworthy, because it has 0.04 and a gigantic list of content. The only reason we had not uploaded it before, is that we had not managed to properly dump it into an ISO image, but now it is finally available.

Unfortunately, this is still not the case for FreeGameStation! vol.1, so the ISO of the disc that brought us 0.06 isn't available yet. But rest assured, it will also be uploaded as soon as we can.

Aside from that, an email account for the team has been created. You can find in the footer. Feel free to use it to contact us, as long as what you have to say is related to the project.

And finally, the website has received a little redesign! It's not much, but things should be better organized and clearer to understand now.

Before leaving, I would like to thank all the people that have supported us. It really makes us happy to see that people enjoy and appreciate our work and it motivates us to keep going.

Versions 0.07 and 0.08 found

We're happy to announce that versions 0.07 and 0.08 of Yume Nikki have been found. We retrieved them from a disc that originally came from a magazine named TechWinDVD 2005/10 (テックウィンDVD 2005年10月号).

This makes us have all the versions from 2005 and the entire development of the game from 0.06 to 0.10. Exciting news for documentation purposes, since we will now be able to pinpoint when did each change exactly take place.

The versions and an ISO file with the contents of the disc can be downloaded here. The following is a photo of the disc. Please note that we don't have the actual magazine, so we can't provide pictures of it.
