Holy crap, now there's suddenly a random flood of Let's Play videos of Nightmare on Youtube, in all sorts of languages. ._.;

I'm greatly amused by some of them. Only half of them actually respectfully link back to this thread where people can download the game, and many of them also don't seem to realize that's it's an RPG Maker game, referring to it as a 2D pixelated horror game. A lot of the comments for such videos are "Hey this looks like Misao!" and similar things, sometimes trying to claim that I'm using resources from said games when I've never even heard of most of them before.

Yeah congrats Zylos. It was kind of fun watching that guy's reactions when creepy things happened.

So, it's been almost a year now since this was released, and I have a new game in the works. But before I do that, there's some stuff I've seen people comment on in the various videos of Nightmare and things I wish I had added back then but left out. So I'm finishing up a quick version 1.05, with some minor tweaks here and there and an actual walkthrough included in the game folder (because apparently some people ran around in circles for over an hour because they couldn't figure out a bloody puzzle or two).

My question for anyone who has already played the game is, what would you like to see added while I'm working on it?

... an actual walkthrough included in the game folder (because apparently some people ran around in circles for over an hour because they couldn't figure out a bloody puzzle or two).

Having been stuck a time or two myself, I can understand why. Things aren't quite as apparent to some as they may be for others, and this is one of those issues that any game developer faces, especially for puzzle games. If the next project is based around a similar concept, it would be worth looking into why there were some struggles and how to improve upon that for next time.

On that note, if you'd find some feedback to be helpful (some time in the future when things are under way), I'd be more than happy to offer some. I quite enjoyed what help I did offer with Nightmare post-GIAW.

Either way, good luck with the new project.

Edit:

Watching through one of those LPs, I had noticed that you have a spelling error (at least one). Near the end, there's the row of newspapers which are reporting the accident, you have misspelled Trauma as "Truama". It's the first of the newspapers. Not sure how fussed you are about things like that before you close this up.

Fixed. No one else noticed. x.x

There could possibly be others. If it's an somewhat important thing, I could go through and look for (any) more of them.

It was an excellent game. Played it a few months back myself, and the only puzzle that threw me off was the one with the animal and human legs.

The only thing that was not fully clear to me was the priest's role in this; even at the end, he seemed to have a sort of unsolved mystery surrounding him. But perhaps playing it a second time I'd pick up more clues.

Hey guys! I just finished this game (the first 2D horror game that I finished on my own, yay! although this game is really old) by getting a good ending.

May I know what is the key that decide whether we get a good or bad ending?
Hey do drop by my blog and check it out! It's all about my life.

I got my girlfriend to play this while live-streaming lol.

This is the link to the video.  She finished both endings (with a little bit of creative searching for the good ending) lol.
