Nightmare will be a first person horror interactive fiction.
Horror is in my opinion a risky genre for an interactive novel, but something I find I would enjoy writing. The story of Nightmare is rather complex. In short terms, it revolves the idea of the player being trapped in a neverending Nightmare. The story takes the player through layers of horrific dreams and nightmares where they will encounter various monstrosities and personal reflections. Dying will result in waking yourself up. This could mean you’ll miss out on finding items or valuable information that could help you in the next dream. Staying in a dream for too long however, will increase your Insanity level.
I’m not planning on releasing chapter by chapter, and a demo is still in the works. All I really have is the introduction page which outlines the style I hope to achieve in Nightmare. There isn’t any choices, being an introduction and all, but is reasonable I suppose. And it is in the Choicescript format for ease of access on my half.
(If you’re wondering why so many sentences are incomplete, it is because this dream takes place in a ‘shattered memory’.)
Short, but I am holding back on an actual demo for now. I expect to finish the game fully before the year is up though.
