Nightmare Boy Launches on the Xbox One
After two years in development Nightmare Boy is releasing on the Xbox One. It will put you in the shoes of Billy, turned into the mysterious Rolo, who must survive his worst nightmares... and the bad dreams of other ten kids, also trapped in the same dark world. Each rescued kid will give Billy a new power that will help him survive that nightmare world; also, the other kids lost in their nightmares will add their own stories to the storyline, with a glympse of the seamy reasons why theyre trapped there.
Nightmare Boy mixes cartoon visuals with classic 2D pixel art. Every asset in the game has been crafted by hand by Juan Garcai, a visual artisan, graphics designer from The Vanir Project. The game mixes adventure, exploration and platforms, and adds some classic "Metroidvania" mechanics: big scenarios, splitted into different zones, most of them only accesible after getting the appropriate weapon or item. The Vanir Project has added a new element to the mix: youll have to spend gems collected during the game in each save point, rewarding the boldest players while punishing the ones that saves all the time.
