Urotsuki's Dream Apartments is a large house or apartment complex decorated in the style of Urotsuki's room that is home to various NPCs and, under certain conditions, also acts as a gateway to some of the deeper worlds.
Entering from The Nexus, you will be placed in a room nearly identical to Urotsuki's Room, except the curtains are drawn and the computer is gone. If you have visited the boy from Bleak Future at least once, an envelope with a heart sticker will be displayed on the desk. Interacting with the TV will overlay the screen with scanlines, with a green "5" in the corner, and makes a Shadow Woman appear behind Urotsuki.
She doesn't move, and turning off the TV will make her vanish and unlock a wallpaper. Occasionally, the Shadow Woman will decide to stick around instead of disappearing, inviting some of her chaser buddies, and throw a monster party. If you manage to flee the room when this happens, outside awaits a flat, immobile shadow woman in front of first doorway and a masked man in front of the second. The masked miscreant will tackle Urotsuki if she tries to go downstairs, jolting her awake.
Interacting with the game console transports you into the Penguin GB Game, which will immediately grant you the Penguin effect. Going through the open door will take you to the hallway outside the room, instead of ending up back at the The Nexus.
Just outside Urotsuki's room, there are two doors that lead to a small annex, which is lilac-tinted and is filled with stacks of furniture. There is also an intriguing door with Urotsuki's shirt design on it, as well as a giant keyhole. However, it is only accessible from the real world, from Urotsuki's room, after the four main endings have been unlocked. It leads to the Developer Room. If you have visited the Solstice Forest at least once, there will be a closet that you can enter, just left of the doors to the aforementioned annex, that serves as a shortcut to two of its connections: the Winter Valley and Bright Forest.
Downstairs, the front door is directly south of you after descending the stairs. This leads back to the The Nexus. The hallway directly to the left leads to a brightly colored room under the stairs where Seishonen resides, and more stairs leading further downstairs. There is also a green telephone that serves as a shortcut to Underground Garage, Sugar Road, Aquatic Cube City or Fossil Lake if you have used the telephone from the opposite area. Keep in mind that activating a shortcut with the telephone WILL override another, if one is currently active. In Seishonen's room, there is a blue door in the corner that will take you to a sectioned off area in the Stone Maze where there is a red tile that will teleport you to the Magnet Room. There's another door at the left which leads to the Tricolor Room along with a hallway. This hallways only contains one door, which leads to a staircase that serves as a passage to the Silent Sewers if this area has been visited before.
The hallway on the right has several doors along the walls. The first door can be opened with the Twintail effect equipped, and leads to an empty room with see-through floorboards, where you can find a red-haired NPC who will disappear if you equip the Chainsaw effect. The second door is locked; inside is Bane Jack who will give you the Spring effect, but this room can only be accessed from the other side in the Apartments. There is a set of portraits, which only appears if Variable 44 is greater or equal to 140, taking you to the Portrait Collection.
The first door on the lower side of the hallway leads to the Trophy Room, a place with small trophies for each effect you've collected thus far. It's main purpose is to let you view certain endings that require you to drop your effects. If you equip and effect then interact with its corresponding trophy, you will 'drop' that effect. Once an effect has been dropped, it will be safely stored in the Trophy Room even after you watch any of the endings and/or wake up, and can be collected at any time by interacting with it again. The glowing blue sphere on the cabinet at the top of the room serves as a connection with The Nexus.
The second door on the lower side of the hallway leads to a small room filled with pink water where you can find the Mother NPC. Interacting with her using the Bug effect causes the baby to enlarge inside her womb and she will move towards you.
The third upper door at the end of the hallway leads to the Dressing Room.
The basement is rather simple, only having two upper doors and one lower door. The door on the right leads to a room with the Apartment Amoeba, a small kitchen to the right, and a tree that has a 1 in 6 chance of appearing. Interacting with the tree causes an event similar to the Witch's Flight in Yume Nikki, except Urotsuki gets in a plane. Pressing Esc will cause Urotsuki to return to the top of the building where the plane is. The door on the left is a room with a small girl sitting down with very, very long hair, some of it being pinned to the wall. She doesn't seem to react to anything. Interacting with the side of one of the large razors on either side of her will cause Urotsuki to walk through it, splitting her in two. Leaving the room or equipping an effect will cause her to return to normal. Sometimes another character will be in the room, a woman who wears a white dress and a white hat with spots on it. Using the Lantern effect causes her to catch on fire and burn up. If you go through the lower-right door, you will come to Simple Street, while the lower-left door next to the staircase leads to a room with a TV set at the lower-middle portion, and a dresser that leads to the Unending River. A chair right next to the drawers appears under certain conditions, which will take you to the Sofa Room. Going downstairs is a dark storage area, where you can use the Lantern effect to light things up. Here, you can find a gift box that will grant you Menu Theme #12.
Going to sleep on the bed in the bedroom has a 1 in 64 chance of taking you to a bleak, desaturated version of the bedroom, apparently set sometime in the future. The TV seems to be inoperative and Urotsuki will refuse to leave the room through the front door or use the computer, although the balcony is still accessible.
Despite Urotsuki's reaction, interacting with the computer has a 1 in 10 chance of taking her to a smaller bedroom, similar in appearance to her own. Interacting with the NPC in this room will unlock two new menu graphic set options on the in-game computer. Equipping the Chainsaw effect in this room will make the boy flash red and force Urotsuki to put away the chainsaw. The doors at the back of the room lead to a balcony similar to Urotsuki's, while the doors at the front will take you back to Urotsuki's bedroom, bleak edition.
Sleeping again on the bed will lead you to an even more desolate version of Urotsuki's bedroom; this version appears utterly abandoned and ravaged by time. The balcony is inaccessible, the TV and computer are broken, but the front door is now unlocked and leads to a forked hallway. The southern corridor exits onto an odd balcony with the sun setting in the background and a colorless image of Urotsuki standing upon a floating platform. The eastern corridor will take you to a dark, sinister room with many beds. Sleeping on the bed in the middle will trigger a "fake" ending sequence, with a credits roll riddled with graphical artifacts and glitchy, dissonant music. Afterwards, Urotsuki will wake up next to her bed in her real bedroom.
Nexus → Urotsuki's Dream Apartments
- This is the most complex world in the game, with a grand total of nineteen maps used in its creation.
- Before version 0.113, a staircase blocked by a cone was found in the downstairs section. Entering the Forest Pier from the Cog Maze would remove this cone, allowing the access to a small, dark room with a single chair and a door. Entering this door would lead to the Forest Pier.
- The Menu Theme found in the storage room downstairs used to be located in the Rose Church, as an egg.
- The shortcut to the Silent Sewers is heavily similar to the shortcut to the Forest Pier that existed before the world's removal.
- In version 0.113g Patch 2, a blue creature was found at the bottom corner of Urotsuki's dream room, which would take her to the Flower Scent World, this was a shortcut to the world for the developer, but was forgotten to be deleted, it was fixed in later patches.
