In Nightmare Aims To Make Your Nightmares Real On The PS4


We have the announcement for In Nightmare, a new horror title where In Nightmare will have us running for our protagonist’s life

All the horror titles seem to be piling up here, as we have yet another with the announcement for In Nightmare. This is a new and upcoming title for the PS4, and most likely the PS5, that is coming out of Magic Fish Studio. All of which will place us in the role of a young child that is trying to escape the reality of his dark life and into the darkness of dreams. As the title In Nightmare implies, this is not going to go well with his nightmares coming to life and hunting him at the same time. All while trying to figure out some puzzles and sneak about the game's world that will be presented. All so he can finally wake up and go back to the reality of it all.

I do have to say that In Nightmare does look like an interesting concept to behold even if the deeper stuff offers up a bit more the depressing side of things out there. Especially when it looks like our hope and salvation is in the dreams we are going to be running from and in. All while controlling our dream spirit in the process and have these other dark terrors aiming for our misery. Granted, this could be just how the video shows things as usual but it could be one of those small titles that impact a lot of us harder than expected. That or just give us those fun puzzles some of us might be craving as of late in our high-action titles that have been pumped out there so often this past year.

In Nightmare — Announcement

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 of the last hope of love who is working out his own salvation by navigating through his fear.

Experiencing the effects of a broken family, and the heartache it brings, a young child will escape reality into a dark, whimsical world created from his own memories. This sets him on his journey to uncover what truly lies within. Having suffered in reality, his past trauma turns into terrifying monsters that want to keep him in an eternal nightmare. With the help of his dream spirit, the boy will find ways to sneak past enemies, overcome intricate puzzles, embrace his fear, and uncover the truth so that he may be able to purify the monsters he has created, and finally wake up.
