NiGHTS fans, i came across this rather interesting flyer online just now - NiGHTS into Dreams

What that is is a recent rave night had occured somewhere recently and they used the title 'NiGHTS into Dreams' as the name for that evenings rave. I doubt it actually had anything else to do with NiGHTS though ...

..so we're sitting on Twitter just now talking about this flyer and we all said how interesting it would be if we actually had a proper NiGHTS Rave! XD

Ok, now. Here's the thing, this topic has been started to talk about the idea. I know all of your are going to find a hundred things wrong with it but hear me out for a second and remember it's just something off the top of my head right now.

Firstly, conventions are standard things. You go to them, you walk around, there's a few events happening here and there then everybody goes home. It's fun and enjoyable but it's a regular thing and i wanna do something different and unique. At some conventions you have a disco/rave evening and these are always really great moments where everybody is just dancing and enjoying themselves.

A NiGHTS convention firstly would need a LOT of people for it to be a decent sized convention and numbers of attending people will not be that high. However, have a rave instead and the numbers can be smaller yet you'd still get a decent time out of it as there would be enough people there to still enjoy what the event is supposed to be.

Sonic has his own convention, Dreadknux used to say how he wanted there to be a convention where you could just go to to talk about Sonic. His idea came around and now it's an annual event.
Now, i'm not looking for an annual event, i'm just looking for one night where the music is playing and we're celebrating NiGHTS as one big group of people.

It won't work like a convention, it will work like going out clubbing. However it will be NiGHTS themed. I imagine the music being NiGHTS music remixed to be rave-esque, i imagine regular non-NiGHTS songs to be similar in personality/genre to NiGHTS so it stays in character, i imagine the room to be decorated accordingly with neon lights, glittery sparkly stars and sh!t all over the place, a smoke machine maybe to recreate the clouds from something like Twin Seeds or BellBridge.

It may be an over 18 event seeing as alcohol could be served depending on how far this plan develops and it would be treated in the sense like a con where you would need to have a ticket bought for the event, that way no strangers can just turn up thinking it's a regular club.

Anyways, as i said, all idea's right now but i want to do this one day. I think it would be nice.
I rarely get the chance to go clubbing but when i have the evenings are always fun and filled with dancing and laughter. For a few hours everybody is on the same level and just enjoying the feeling. I would like to share something like that with this community somehow.

Everybodies going to go "but i can't dance and i don't drink" and i'm expecting all sorts of things like this but as i said, this is just something off the top of my head right now that i would really like to do.
Summer of Sonic started out as an idea and has developed in to a massive convention. I'm not chasing such a big idea there, i just want us to celebrate NiGHTS for one night in a proper celebratory manner. Let's dance! XD

omg do it do it do it do it!!! i cant dance and i don't drink :P both are true, but i sure as hell will dance my heart out, even if it's bad dancing XD the bright colours of NiGHTS really help this idea aswell, this WILL happen! ^_^ that was to emphasise my wanting for it to happen, but it works as a dreamer pun aswell lol. i for one can imagine everyone dancing to Drifting Donbalon, whether it's very ravy or not! :D i'm getting glow in the dark blue contact lenses for this for sure if this happens! excitement!

EDIT: oh! oh! and dancing to clashing cerberus! and message from nightopia! XD and....umm...D'Force Master? :P MC Wizey and DJ Jackle in the Mad Mantle Night Club!

So what the heck was that NiGHTS party rave thing? Clearly someone involved must be a NiGHTS fan.. need moar info about that.

Heh, I don't dance really, but I do drink, lol. A NiGHTS con where all the fans converge would be awesome. Blast it though, as we all know we're all from different parts. And none of us has a lotta moneys for travel.

Of course I'm on the side that says we converge at the Ideya Bistro restaurant here in New York City..

  • Interests:I am an avid gamer but also enjoy all kinds of other hobbies such as going out to museums,events and such. As it is currently Winter it means hibernating in house rather than going out a lot. <br /><br /> I should also mention that growing up playing on SEGa systems it is now my favorite game company in the whole world. The games developed by it always inspire me a lot and remind me of all those games many years ago such as Nights that I have many fond memories of. <br /><br />I also am really creative and tend to do all kinds of art such as drawings,painting and such. However, lately I have focused more on my computing course so have not done much. :)
I see nothing wrong with this and when the day comes I will be there at the front with a paid ticket! If you allow a few of the other SEGA sites for Space channel 5, Panzer Dragoon and such then it could be possible to get even more people. They most likely already fell in love with NiGHTS but could be brainwashed before coming out. :P

I go out clubbing sometimes like for the work party on Friday and I still have a good time without drinking alcohol, so that is not an excuse guys. :D

You could do some sick remixes of NiGHTS tracks as well DiGi for some serious dance off. I am not sure if it would work but maybe even have a NiGHTS score attack corner. As mentioned on twitter hire some NiGHTS pole dancers as well. I could imagine how hilarious the dress code of just purple would be as I got some nice new purple trainers and t-shirts. ^_^

I better go to sleep but hope you guys back up the NiGHTS rave and anything I could do to help just give me a shout.

I've contacted the person about that flyer, asking for info. I doubt it had anything to do with NiGHTS though, they just wanted a catchy title, i think.

As for a NiGHTS Rave, i know it's a global issue seeing as everybody is from everywhere but if we planned well in advance, like a year before hand, saving money for tickets and hotels and flights would be easier, as long as people were putting their money to one side specially for it.

I'm going to the Auchinawa and Summer of Sonic conventions next year and a bunch of NiGHTS fans are saying they're going to try and make it. If they're willing to make it to a random anime convention just to represent NiGHTS then i'd imagine they would definitely save up to come to a NiGHTS clubbing event! XD

But as i said, we'll see what happens over the course of time. Just wanted to throw this idea out here real quick.

I also agree with Diogo. Getting some of the other sites in to celebrate NiGHTS would show us being very neighbourly with our fellow SEGA communities and would make for a great evening.

All I can say is good luck and if this does happen... You guys better have some footage to put up or you will all be drowned in the purple sea.

Um... Any idea for crazy visuals NiGHTS related? You know... purple lights, big screens with something on them. o_o

EDIT: oh! oh! and dancing to clashing cerberus! and message from nightopia! XD and....umm...D'Force Master? :P MC Wizey and DJ Jackle in the Mad Mantle Night Club!

O_O Yes! XD Except that I'd push Jackle away and take up the position as DJ. :P It'd end badly since it's Jackle we're talking about, but for the three seconds as DJ, it'd be worth it.

Hmm... Man. Just one thing after another. I'm never going to be able to go anywhere outside the state. XD (I did once... Nothing really exciting happened out in the middle of no where.) I've never gone clubbing and I don't drink. Heck, I can't even dance. XP (Side note: I can't drive either; no license for whatever reason.) Although I'd love to go... Too bad...

So ideas for the rave, eh?

1. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. (That or byob...or something.)
2. Various snacks.
3. Cosplay allowed. (Why? Well why not?)
4. Balloons perhaps? (Twin Seeds/Bellbrdge reference.)
5. Those little glow-in-the-dark stars you can find at party stores.
6. Find a DJ! I would suggest (since I know nothing about it XP) maybe getting two or so people showing up to the rave to take care of it. (...Yeah, definitely know nothing. No se nada!)
7. Random karaoke. :P
8. Songs from Dreams to Themes 1 & 2 playing along with everything else.
--
On the subject of rave songs... I was thinking maybe a remix having "aptiva" cycle around a lot. :P "Ap-tiva! Ap-tiva! Ap-ap ap-tiva!" :P /random

I suffer from a life lacking clubbing (not that I normally would, but this is the fanbase we're talking about...). >>

Edit: If NiGHTS is shaking, so will Reala...eventually. >>;; I'm a bit terrified right now.

DO IT TRiPPY! DO IT!! 8D There has to be a way to rig that. I've got the Riders model of NiGHTS. :3

Um.. 83 Yeah. Balloons would be a good idea. And there has to be something that can be done with the alarm egg. I really don't know what, but it's screaming at me that it should be placed somewhere in this.

It might be a stupid idea... but what about NiD freeplay on the big screens at one point in time.

...I think I need to make some NiD cybergoggles. >_>

Hmmm... ideya disco balls? Long yellow ribbons for solo dancers, or a dance-off? DEFINITELY have a score-attack game going, then we could see if alcohol consumption directly affects the final score. XD

I've been accepted to school in 2011 and I gotta save every scrap of moolah that I can - however, if this were to become a real, annual event, me and NiGHTS-kun will be there in a few years! XD

Haha I could only join in if I had a camera and someone was running a live feed online! X3

NiGHTS Rave? Me like. :P

To all those saying they can't dance, I say Bullshit. Look at this video. Ninety percent of the people there are just jumping in time with the beat and that's a ton of fun too. Besides, people who want to do something a bit more flashy tend to make circles anyway so people can strut there stuff. People don't really care what you do in there though.

Okay, a few assorted thoughts:

-Reaching out to other niches in the Sega fanbase would be a good idea. Organizing a con is expensive so we want to get as many people to participate as possible to help pay.

-Good security is vital

-Good panels all the time are vital. If people don't have things to go to they get bored quick.

-I don't like the idea of making the con 18+. That could alienate a lot of fans. Maybe specific panels could be 18+ but not the con entirely or the Rave

-Rave's by nature tend to just be long, virtually nonstop streams of techno, dancing, and pretty bright lights. Breaking that flow with other things at the rave like a dance off or score attack session would be difficult and likely none too appreciated. People can leave the rave for a bit and do that elsewhere.

-Rave's are all about location. If it's being held in a room or space, the rave will suffer immensely for it.

-Sega remixes at the rave would be cool but lets not forget some of the good ol' standbys.

-I don't know about alcohol specifically for the rave since booze dehydrates you. If yes, they should be fluorescent. Dancing for even a little bit is exhausting. Dancing all night is crazier (I know, I've done it). The last thing needed is people passing out left and right from dehydration. Lots of easily accessible water coolers are a must one way or the other.

-Glowsticks are a must obviously.

-I'm against balloons at the rave. Depending on rave size, people are already going to be somewhat pressed for space. The last thing you need is a potential tripping hazard in balloons with stale helium rolling on the ground.

-We should totally try to get Bentley Jones to perform at the rave. Dance music is what he does after all and this would be the perfect place to do it considering what he's known for. Besides, if I'm not mistaken TRiP and DiGi are at least acquainted with him.

Two of my most favorite things? Count me in!

Actually, I've never been to rave, but my bro and I are really into hardstyle and trance and electronic music in general. I'd love to go to something like this.

It kinda sounds like it'd be a great way to celebrate NiGHTS getting in DLC (if he does. Which he hopefully will!)

In response to the rave that happened, i did contact someone and they told me it was just the title of the rave. It had nothing to do with NiGHTS at all.

There's a video of the event, though a very short one ..and not a lot going on really. At least they played a good song, lol --> short clip

I'm still wanting to do this. And technically by the time this ever should come around you'd all probably be old enough to attend and drink anyway. The drinking age in the UK is 18, not 21 like in America (...is it still 21 over there, guys?).
So if you're 18 years old we can all drink and do merry dancing, lol! XD

Anyways, as i said. It's all ideas. Beautiful fantastic idea's that i really want to try and do one day. I wouldn't try and alientate people because of adding alcohol to the event but it is designed to be a more adult orientated evening instead of a normal convention or something. It's not really trying to be a convention. But as i said, we'll see on that.

I'm thinking a Soft Museum area, where there's maybe a bouncy castle for people to jump around in. Dunno if we could use a bouncy castle IN DOORS so if that idea couldn't work i'd have loads of bean bags laid out for people to chillax on.

Come to think of it, gotta have some NiGHTS drinking games..

Hm..

Drink when you A rank
Drink [something extra hard] if you loop a Pian
Drink when you achieve a triple-digit Link
Drink if you 2.0
Try to guess your Nightmaren, if you're correct, drink
Drink when you set a record
Drink when you Dreamy

sounds like Charlie's gonna be the most pissed then! XD


i take it this would be happening in the UK, as the drinking age is lower and so the younger folks can get in sooner? and also, we'd need a hotel aswell would we not? ;)

Ooh hoo hoo, all fun ideas.
But I agree on the no-drinking thing.
Chances are, if this does happen, it won't happen within the next six years, so I won't even be allowed there. Not that I EVER want to be anywhere near that vile substance, alcohol. *Wrinkles nose*

But it's fun to theorize. If I ever did attend I'd be running around in full Jackle costume eating everyone’s' ankles :P And might I say: IDEYA BEACH BALLS. Huh? Huh? Paint stars on the front of clear colored beach balls and voila! If this sort of thing was ever organized, it'd likely have to be in two different places. Europe, and North America, since there are too many fans on each side to only do it in one place.
Paper mache makes for good decoration. It'd be easy enough to make egg-clocks, just use paper mache on a balloon for the two halves and then make a clock shape to glue in the middle.
And I can animate a NiGHTS booty shake for you. Proper this time. More frames, more jiggle, more shine on the globe-like-ass-cheeks, and more horror and eye bleeding >:3

Yes, it's still 21. Although recently some exchange students who returned to a nearby high school from their stay in France got in trouble for drinking over there. Some rules should be looked into before drinking starts. -_-

To be fair, "rave" normally implies substances considerably harder than alcohol.

I don't do illegal drugs and I'm a pretty shitty dancer outside of DDR. But if there's booze and NiGHTS how could I possibly say no? (The answer is it being on a different continent. :P)

true, drugs do usually getting pinned with the rave scene, but we dont need em, we got our own brand of twinkle dust! XD and we're NiGHTS fans, we dont need the illegals, if there's one thing we've learnt to do, it's to make our own fun without help (Like how we had to with NiGHTS, with no help from sega for years :P did i make that clear enough yet? i could keep going, i'm really bored -_-)

Yep, raves are usually a place where a lot of hard drugs get passed around. Of course, that's because some of the people showing up to them are messed up to begin with. A rave with us probably wouldn't even involve much alcohol. Just pink and purple glowsticks, radiant hats, NiGHTS power remixes, etc.

Drink when you A rank
Drink [something extra hard] if you loop a Pian
Drink when you achieve a triple-digit Link
Drink if you 2.0
Try to guess your Nightmaren, if you're correct, drink
Drink when you set a record
Drink when you Dreamy


Not bad, but the point of a drinking game isn't to drink when you do something difficult; you're supposed to drink when you do something bad. That way the more you play the more drunk you're going to get no matter what. Try...

- Drink when you C rank
- Drink twice for a D
- Drink 3 times for an E
- Drink if you loop a Pian by accident
- Drink if you break your link before 30
- Drink for every tenth of a point below 1.7
- Drink for every -5sec incident
- Drink twice if you time out the dualize
- Drink three times if the alarm egg gets you
And for the skilled:
- Everyone else drinks if you A and 2.0
- Everyone else drinks two more if you set the new high score

Now that's more like a drinking game. As you can tell I might have a wee bit of experience...>_>

And now a word from the Great Mother:

DON'T DO DRUGS KIDS! IF YOU COSPLAY YOU'RE MESSED UP ENOUGH ALREADY :-D <3

Nah seriously, after years of living with druggies as a kid i want to gouge out eyeballs of people like that. Burn in hell. One of my biggest hates. I'm all cool with Alchohol if you're of the age to do it, have sensible amounts of fun, and don't go killing yourself like a moron. Everything in moderation etc etc. If this rave thing was to happen it would have booze but it's not like MANDATORY that everyone MUST drink, jeeze, what kinda club would that be? It'd just be like a regular night out where people do what they feel. I didn't start drinking until i was about 19 or 20 because i hated alchohol, and i despised peer pressure at school to start much younger. Do what makes you feel comfortable -_- And don't shove it down the neck of people who don't care~ that's the way i see it. I've went to clubs and not drunk a thing before and still had a great time, drink just tricks you into thinking it was better than it actually was i think *lol*


I Loooooove this rave idea! I wanna get me some lasers and speakers the size of the house.

Alright, I skimmed the topic, but I thought I'd throw in my two cents (maybe even...three cents):

* Being aware of the semi-niche status of this fanbase, it would be difficult to organize something like this on the scale that would be both most pleasing, as well as doing justice to the idea, without a larger attendance. Therefore, there would need to be a convergence of groups, probably through an overlapping of events. Keep on reading and you'll get where I'm going...
* Summer of Sonic is an annual event now, right? DiGi has informed me that the event itself doesn't have plans solidified until very close to the date it will happen, which makes it an issue to plan ahead. For a NiGHTS dance incorporating as many people as possible, considering how far and wide the fans are spread across the globe, we'd need a little more of a heads-up. However, if it were at all possible, for Summer of Sonic 2011 (not the upcoming Summer but the Summer after that) to be planned five to six months ahead of time, it would be more of a reason for Sega fans, and particularly NiGHTS fans in-general (as they have a somewhat overlapping fanbase) to trek to the area for it.
* I've spammed this enough already, but NiGHTS: Lucid Dreaming is due out July 5th, 2011. As of right now, there are quite a few brewing killer dance-style tracks that would be perfect to incorporate into a playlist or live-set. Even-more-so, that'd be enough time for yours-truly here to save up money and come over to celebrate the release with my two associate producers. It'd probably be best to kill multiple birds with one stone and arrange for whatever celebration to take place around the time of Summer of Sonic 2011, since I definitely want to go to that as well.
* That gives over a year and a half for planning for a "NiGHTS Dance" (let's not call it a rave for now, due to the negative connotations of that word -_-) to happen in the UK. Ideally, it'd be the night before or after SoS2011, and you could draw fans from the convention itself that are NiGHTS fans. It wouldn't be directly connected to SoS probably, but you never know, and having it then is also a great way to celebrate the release of Lucid Dreaming, even if it's 1-2 months after-the-fact. Planning for then also gives some of the younger folks in this fanbase time to age-up and possibly increase their chances of attending/cutting loose, while it also gives EVERYONE a chance to start saving money with a realistic possibility of coming.
* Oh, and the small fact that NiD was released in Japan July 5th, 1996 and in North America August 31st, SoS2011 is primed to fall right in the midrange between anniversary dates. Heck, with that kind of significance, you might even be able to get other fan groups or Sega itself to help sponsor a NiGHTS celebration (slimmest of chances, obviously, but if Sega was able to sponsor a "rave" in the crappy movie The House of the Dead, I don't see why they wouldn't do it for this. Pitch it to them the right way, such as emphasizing the exposure to the fanbase and the possibility of vendor sales, and they might go for it).

Now maybe I just over-thought that 100%, but it's a good if-not-too far-fetched idea, right? There are other ideas to increase the likelihood that this will happen, have a good turnout, and just be fun:
* While the theme should definitely be NiGHTS, not every song played would HAVE to be a NiGHTS song. There's only so much material and if you want this to go on a good long time without becoming a bit dragging, DJs will have to switch it up a bit. So, essentially, it'd be a NiGHTS-focused video game dance party, not limited to NiGHTS but having a heavy emphasis on it.
* Obviously some other activities and whatnot would go on, such as people possibly doing score runs on a big screen.

I'm sure I've got others but mostly I wanted to get that main idea of the when, where, and how out of my head while I still had it.

Not bad, but the point of a drinking game isn't to drink when you do something difficult; you're supposed to drink when you do something bad. That way the more you play the more drunk you're going to get no matter what. Try...

- Drink when you C rank
- Drink twice for a D
- Drink 3 times for an E
- Drink if you loop a Pian by accident
- Drink if you break your link before 30
- Drink for every tenth of a point below 1.7
- Drink for every -5sec incident
- Drink twice if you time out the dualize
- Drink three times if the alarm egg gets you
And for the skilled:
- Everyone else drinks if you A and 2.0
- Everyone else drinks two more if you set the new high score

Now that's more like a drinking game. As you can tell I might have a wee bit of experience...>_>

Heh, I was thinking about that, yeah makes more sense that everyone else drinks when you do the high rank stuff. Good suggestion to drink when hit, shoulda thoughta that one. Also for breaking a link. Yes, these ideas are much better.

Moar?

Drink if you break the ribbon early, or finish with fewer than three tricks
Drink if you accidentally enter the Ideya Capture early

And now a word from the Great Mother:

DON'T DO DRUGS KIDS! IF YOU COSPLAY YOU'RE MESSED UP ENOUGH ALREADY :-D <3

Nah seriously, after years of living with druggies as a kid i want to gouge out eyeballs of people like that. Burn in hell. One of my biggest hates. I'm all cool with Alchohol if you're of the age to do it, have sensible amounts of fun, and don't go killing yourself like a moron. Everything in moderation etc etc. If this rave thing was to happen it would have booze but it's not like MANDATORY that everyone MUST drink, jeeze, what kinda club would that be? It'd just be like a regular night out where people do what they feel. I didn't start drinking until i was about 19 or 20 because i hated alchohol, and i despised peer pressure at school to start much younger. Do what makes you feel comfortable :) And don't shove it down the neck of people who don't care~ that's the way i see it. I've went to clubs and not drunk a thing before and still had a great time, drink just tricks you into thinking it was better than it actually was i think *lol*

And if you do anything like that I'll bust you for it. Jail time, anyone?

I still feel shaky about any sense-impairing substance being involved. People abuse alcohol very easily, and it very quickly becomes dangerous. For those drinking and those potentially being assaulted by a drunk or killed by a drunk driver. Even local-fans to the party might not be able to come because they also feel it would be dangerous and/or they're not allowed to come because of alcohol involvement. Fans come and go all the time, so even if there are people that are nineteen now by the time the party rolls around there will likely be some fans aged 12-17 (Myself included) Quite often when drinks are involved you're required to have legal ID to prove you're 18 or 21 years of age to enter, so even if we did want to come we wouldn't be able to get in. It doesn't seem worth it really to have that going on just so people can get that weird enjoyment they can somehow get from embalming fluid or to see people drunk off their asses playing NiD (However much I would enjoy watching people drunk off their ass play NiD) [/Partypooperattitude]

^ Agreed. If we do this, maybe something like a Shirley Temple could be served- it looks nice, but is perfectly safe. I've never heard of anyone OD'ing on grenadine. <_<

I see what Lev's is saying. That's a thought. Pair the NiGHTS Rave with the Summer of Sonic convention, like the day after or something, maybe even at the same venue? So, people who came to SoS might wanna hang around for a weekend to also attend the NiGHTS thing too. The idea works nicely <_<

In actual fact, now that i think about it, whenever i've been clubbing i've arrived at the club drunk because it's cheaper to just drink at home. And when they have a rave at an Anime convention usually people who want to be tipsy drink with friends in their hotel rooms before heading to the dance.

The only way i can see this working is if we teamed up with SoS one random year by having our rave the following day at the same venue therefore not having to travel everywhere/elsewhere, maybe a hotel some place. Summer of Sonic on day one and the NiGHTS Rave the day after in the evening, thus leaving everybody during the day to sight-see or help set stuff up.
I'm still just speaking idea's that are coming in to my head right now, nothing is solid at all.

And the term Rave, i dunno if it's really considered such a controversial word. It's basically just used to describe a 'dance party', which is technically what this is meant to be anyway. The scene itself is let down by the drug users but this event wouldn't be on that level.
It's kinda like a small con but a night out, if you see what i'm saying. I've always called a 'dance' a rave simply because a dance just sounds so singular where as a rave is meant to represent a collective of dance and ah fuckit i'm mummbling XD;

NiGHTS Rave. Crashing next door to a Sonic convention - one day.

Besides, I don't think a Rave in the context of a convention event carries any negative connotations at all really. Just a dance to J-pop or whatever.

excellent points, which is why we will have sober adults to make sure no-one goes too out of it i would hope. i think we should sort out a card thing to prove who you are on the forums, so it would say who you are on the forums, and how old you are, so the bartenders dont accept any sneaky ones sneaking sneaky booze sneak sneak :lol: it should also get you into the event itself, so no randomers can just waltz in. and it can be pretty and NiGHTSy :)

Omg, the thought of a NiGHTS Rave makes me giggle with uber joy.

This would be the most awesome thing ever to happen anywhere. I would totally do ANYTHING to be there if something was organised XD

It's dose sound like a good a idea. Maybe it could be in a park and have it around the world? So that people are more likely to go to one. Might not happen.
