Steam Summer Sale is now live!

Hello everyone!

NightmareZ is currently on Steam summer sale and get it now at 70% off and I hope you will enjoy the game.

More updates of NightmareZ are coming soon on Steam within the next few months.

Thank you very much for your continuous support, guys! I love all of you and the whole Steam community for being so supportive of an indie game developer. I have received lots of feedback and suggestions from the interested players which helped me to improve the game by introducing the features in the last few months including XBOX 360 controller/gamepad support, adding auto saves, audio settings in menu etc. Thanks again for your support guys!

Note: As my first game(NightmareZ) has received some attention, I am currently working on an upcoming project which I have not disclosed yet. But you will come to know about it soon enough. It was not possible for me to work on another project without your support. A big thanks to all of you!
I will be providing updates for NightmareZ periodically. I hope, you will give this game a try.

Play and Enjoy! Have a nice summer holiday!

Best Regards,

Joystick/ Gamepad / XBOX 360 Controller is now supported! V1.3.4

Hello everyone,

NightmareZ is currently on sale with 70% discount! Get this game now on:

Developer here! I am really glad to announce that I have successfully added Joystick/ Gamepad/ XBOX 360 Controller support for NightmareZ game as per the request from the Steam community. This game is now compatible with Keyboard, and mouse, Generic Gamepads/Joystick and more importantly, XBOX 360 Controller. However, the controllers are partially supported at the moment that means the controllers work only in levels but not in menus. However, I have a plan to introduce "Full" controller support if possible within the next few updates.

Features which have been introduced for NightmareZ V1.3.4.0 are mentioned below:

1. Controller support including XBOX 360, and other generic Gamepads/joystick.

2. Auto saving at the beginning of each level. In the previous update, I had introduced this feature but was not supported for all levels. So, I have added this auto-saving system for all the levels, that means, the game will be auto-saved at the beginning of each level.

3. Added Controls section where both Keyboard and Joystick controls are clearly visible separately. It is recommended that you check the controls before playing the game with a controller or keyboard.

With the next few updates, I will introduce controller support for menus, an ability of taking screenshots and directly uploading on Steam and more options in the pause menu.

I hope that you are enjoying the game and thank you very much for your patience and support. If you face any problem while playing the game with the controller and for any other feature request, please feel free to write in the comments below or you can make a separate discussion thread. I will try my best to improve the game as far as practicable.

Play and Enjoy!

Best Regards,

“NightmareZ is a platformer which is rough around the edges. Progressing through the stages themselves, with the player character’s majestic, if clumsy, movement is a blast. The stage pickups are placed deliberately and in ways which require experimentation to collect, rather than a linear progression of “Keep moving right.””

“A little action-platformer that shows a great deal of promise, its fast, frantic and all round pretty damn fun!”

“NightmareZ is a pretty good time waster. I would get frustrated with the deaths, but would be determined to continue on. It was a good frustration and I found myself laughing at myself when I kept dying to those scythes.”
5.4/10 – TICGN
