The Forgotten Nightmare Remaster is a modern take on a classic game style. Designed with mobile devices in mind, this interactive fiction game will draw you in as your imagination draws the pictures. Try it out and find out why a lost game genre implementing a modern interface makes for a surprisingly refreshing gaming experience.
This Christian themed story begins with an accident. An accident that leaves you, as the player, unable to recall not only where you are, but who you are as well. Awakening in an overturned van, being suspended by your seatbelt, you must first figure a way of escape. Once free to explore the area, you find yourself in a world that not only seems strangely empty but openly hostile as well. As the story unfolds and your memory begins to return, you begin to question whether these strange happenings are limited to the immediate area. If your experience of this small town is reflective of the state of the world, then things are certainly not as they used to be!
A word of warning! This seemingly dark tale is refreshed by a large number of humorous responses that if caught unaware, may have you bursting out in spontaneous laughter. This may cause embarrassment if played in a public place. In fact, no matter how many hours are spent playing this game, it would be nearly impossible to discover every comical response.
But really, could a game of this caliber truly have the power to engage a player? A game without the advanced audio and video quality we’ve come to expect from modern entertainment? There is only one way to find out. Give it a try and discover why this hidden gem has quickly become loved by many who have decided to do so themselves. Some have even dared to say that it is the best game they have ever played. You may be surprised at how quickly and easily the story draws you in!

This was such an enthralling text adventure, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is based in an alternative universe that is every non-Christian's nightmare. I'm not a Christian, but the game was so interesting that I'm not even mad that it's actually just a missionary tool to introduce elementary Christianity to the layman. There is a message for people that need it and it's a clever way to go about it. If you happen to be a staunch atheist, though, prepare for a disappointment.
This was an extremely interesting game. Although I caught on to the 'plot twist' fairly early in the game, and realized the Christian tones, I kept playing because it was so enjoyable. I am an agnostic who is usually not a big fan of preachy stories and games, but I felt that the way this was presented wasn't an 'overload of preach'. While I can see rigid atheists not enjoying the game, anyone teetering on the edge of Christianity or a Christian would *probably* be able to appreciate the message. On to the next chapter!
An engaging mystery
With controls reminiscent of a text-based MUD, and the intriguing mystery of puzzles that brought memories of playing games like "Myst" and "Beyond Atlantis" to mind, The Forgotten Nightmare is an engaging and fun-to-play game with a strong basis in Christian beliefs and an excellent message of redemption.
The ending leaves me wanting to know what happens next, and I eagerly look forward to playing the next chapter of this series.
