Maximum Games and developer Magic Fish Studios have announced In Nightmare, an adventure-horror game that’s coming to PS4 later this year.
The announcement comes by way of the publisher and a dramatic trailer featuring the young protagonist as he falls into a deep sleep – and even deeper nightmares. You’ll have to guide the young lad away from the horrors of his nightmares with the help of his dream spirit to return from the land of nod.
In Nightmare is a narrative-driven story that puts players in a terrifying world where dreams come to life to haunt your every move. Will the protagonist, defenseless against this terror, lock himself away forever, or will he cling on to his last hope of love as he drifts into the darkness? To prevail, players will need to solve intricate puzzles and hide from the ghouls that seek to tear him down, bit by bit.
From the press release:
Closing his heart to reality, our protagonist falls into a deep slumber and awakens in a nightmarish dreamworld. In Nightmare is a narrative-driven horror adventure game combining sneak action with diverse puzzles. It follows a young boy in search for the last hope of love who is working out his own salvation by navigating through his fear.
