What is it all about?
The year is 1996. A group of teenagers awake to find themselves trapped in a dark, twisted reflection of their sleepy hometown of Forest Hills. As they make their way across the East Side High School campus, they realise they are being hunted by a supernatural force taking the forms of fearsome killers. Relentlessly pursued, the teens must band together to fight back, survive, and escape the terrifying anomaly they have come to know as The Nightmare. To me this is feeling like a welcome blend of the horror films; Scream, The Faculty and Friday the 13th’s!
You have me hooked, tell me more!
Last Year: The Nightmare is a 6-player online action game in which five players work together and attempt to escape while fighting back deadly killers controlled by the sixth. The survivors must complete various objectives in the environment to win, while the murderers lose if they are not successful in annihilating the enemy team. Last Year: The Nightmare has been developed as a service game that evolves over time, with regular content updates to keep the experience fresh. This gives the game unlimited replay value, as players will always have a reason to relive the nightmare.
