Nightmerica is a game about fighting your fears, and the monsters that live inside your head. In your boundless imagination, pretty much everything is out to get you - and it's only a matter of time until you're overwhelmed. The game is a retro styled platformer, consisting of arena based combat against hoards of varied and slightly terrifying enemies. It also features randomly generated guns, and mods to change their behaviour on the go. The full game will feature several maps and game modes (possibly) including; basic survival, defend the base, procedurally generated arenas and boss rush. The game is basically trying to capture the feeling of frantic fast paced action, combined with very satisfying combat and platforming controls.

Hey. That's a mighty fine lookin' game. I really wanna give this alpha a go, but I keep getting an error saying it can't load 'joystick2.mfx'. Any ideas what could be going on?

Ah yeah, that's a problem we resolved (I think) by including some DLL's now. But if you want to fix it you need to get a DirectX 9.0 update: Microsoft.com
