Foreword


We love hardcore platformers, but we're fed up with them being associated with primitive graphics. Therefore we have made our own moderately hardcore game, but with unique gameplay, and comfortable and responsive control, wrapping it all into the magical atmospheric world of childhood nightmares.

About The Game


Through the Nightmares — is the atmospheric hardcore action-platformer in low-poly style. You will have to be in the role of Sandman wandering the world of children's nightmares, to find children in them and overcome their fears. Save them all from the trap of the almighty Morpheus!



Main Features

  • No pixel art — only beautiful atmospheric locations, painstakingly assembled by hand;
  • Assess your strength in a hardcore platformer in an atypical for this genre low-poly style;
  • Dip into a story mode of 45 levels, divided into 3 chapters. Don 't let the kids get stuck in dreams and help them overcome their fears!
  • Learn to combine Sandman skills! In addition to agility, the protagonist is able to change his size, which helps to slip where others cannot;
  • A lot of action!
  • And even more action!
  • Pick up and use a resurrecting flask with magic sand that will allow you don’t return to the start of level after every death;
  • Bothered of count timings? In “Through the Nightmares” most barriers work to the beat of the music, so it is enough only to listen to it to choose suitable moments.

Character's Abilities


You have to combine mechanics to survive. Resize mechanic will allow slipping into hard-to-reach places:



With the help of a hit, you can break platforms, opening initially closed tracks and alternative routes. In this way you simplify (and sometimes complicate) for yourself further passes - all changes at the level are saved after death:



It is not necessary to spend hundreds of attempts to re-pass already learned parts of levels — you will use a flask-checkpoint, which can be placed anywhere. All you should do is get to it on the level, little remains to be done then!



An important role of playing is your gaming skills. "Through The Nightmares" involves continuous improvement. After death, use the new knowledge to get closer and closer to the finish line step by step.

Locations Graphic Style




The game consists of three chapters-dreams, each chapter tells the story of an individual child. Dreams of each child — unique by setting atmospheric locations. They are not similar to each other, just as the children are different: everyone has their own hobbies, impressions, and fears. The world of Through the Nightmares is full of atmospheric scenery filled with colorful details.



Each chapter contains 15 levels and a battle against the boss. The variety of gameplay won't let you get bored. You can return to previous levels at any time to find additional items and secrets, or try out yourself at complicated versions of the levels.

You're about to stay overnight in the gloomy forest, to explore depths of space and to visit an epoch of knights. However, you will not enjoy the moment, because everything around will hunt for you. Enough just one touch of children's fear is enough to kill the main hero.

Barriers And Enemies


Everything in the world of dreams: enemies and ordinary objects will be set against you.
