The Nightmare from Beyond is a cosmic-horror third person platformer inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft. You take on the role of Sanja, a young woman from the D'nyg race, as she explores a mysterious land in search for her sister, Dajana.

There, Sanja will decipher what that place is, what is happening there, and why her sister was taken. She will also be in constant danger, for unspeakable horrors are watching her every move.

  • Face The Nightmare: Uncover an oppressive and gripping tale about corruption and immorality, inspired by different works of the Lovecraft mythos. Make your way through a dangerous land, with unspeakable dreads that are worse than death itself.
  • Explore diverse environments: Immerse yourself in haunting labyrinthine areas, from mysterious temples to quaint alien locations, that blend together to deliver an intriguing story.
  • Experience varied gameplay: At its core, The Nightmare from Beyond is a 3d platformer. However, the game sometimes changes into a sidescroller perspective, a first person perspective, or a CCTV-fixed-camera game.
  • Confront environmental challenges: Traverse the environments as you leap over pits, cling onto ledges, climb structures and solve puzzles to advance in your quest. Find different gadgets and combine them with your skills to reach new areas and learn more about the mysterious location you are in.
  • Capture memories with "Photo Mode": Move the camera anywhere you want and share memorable screenshots with the community. Photo Mode does not pause the game, so you can also use your screen capture app to record video for animated gifs, video montages or animations.

Hello all!

First of all, sorry for the slow updates. I spent the last part of 2017 upgrading to a newer version of the engine, making sure everything everything worked correctly, and fixing what didn't. Then I spent the first part of this month working on an entry for the "Neon Challenge":

On top of that, I am working on a smaller point-and-click game in parallel to The Nightmare from Beyond. Actually I've been working on this point-and-click game since May/June 2017, and it's nearly finished. I've been doing this because I currently have monetary issues that don't allow me to work on The Nightmare from Beyond full time, so I am constantly looking for alternate sources of income while I keep making it.

So, while my monetary issues are solved, my time will have to be divided between developing The Nightmare from Beyond and making smaller/simpler games.

On top of that, I am planning the different things that should help me promote "The Nightmare" better, since it's not selling well (understandably, since I was forced to release it earlier than I would have liked).

I am aiming for next update to be released on either late February or early March.

In the meantime, there are some 4K wallpapers I wanted to share with you. On a side note, an earlier version of this suit (the Elthar Suit) is already in the game.

SO happy to see you working on a new game! I was obsessed with Enola and we had a couple of nice PMs about it on Desura way back when. I will definitely be picking this up in early release stage on Steam, and will be sure to leave feedback (on Steam review section). Rock on guys!

Hi there! Thanks a lot! I do remember those PMs we had back then, and I really hope you like this new game. It's very different to Enola, but it's still very dark and weird!
