Nightmare Boy is a metroidvania, action/adventure 2D game that takes place in your worst nightmares! In your quest to save Noctum from its self-proclaimed ruler, you’ll meet weird and unique friends and foes.
After unfortunate events result in the disappearance of Aster, Noctum’s king, the balance between Monsters, Mongos, and Dreamers is lost … and chaos engulfs the land of Donorok in the Noctum region. Defenseless against evil, the children of Donorok are trapped in a malevolent wizard’s dreamlike world and forever locked in darkness. Their only hope? Nightmare Boy, who’s ready and willing to enter the nightmare and put his life on the line.
Explore a hell-like open world in your quest to free the children from captivity; each rescued child grants the protagonist special abilities and powers – such as double jumps, projectiles, explosives, and more. Tread carefully when talking or interacting with NPCs: Quirky characters and their reactions can have game-changing consequences. In fact, mere survival is far from guaranteed in Nightmare Boy: Fast reflexes and a taste for exploration are key if you intend to collect rare items, vanquish enemies, and eventually face your deepest fears.
Sharp Controls: Players have absolute control with double and triple jumps, wall-grabbing, multiple forms, spells, and much more!
World Map: Far corners of the world are revealed as players venture further and further into the nightmare.
Hidden Collectibles: Helpful in uncovering a number of possible endings.
Precious Stones: Necessary to save the game (as a tribute) or to be able to afford items in the store.
Player Choice: Very different outcomes available, whether players interact with characters – or not!
