Description

Somewhere between heaven and the underworld, in the center of a quiet lake, stood an ancient castle known as Aventheim. One night, without warning, denizens of the netherworld emerged and slaughtered the kingdom; nary a soul was left alive. Within an abandoned, long-forgotten church deep in the woods, a wisp is set free. Bereft of memory, it is drawn toward the monster-infested castle and re-awakens the souls of the vanquished knights, leading them back towards the fallen stronghold to confront the very forces of evil that took their lives! Not easily placed in any one genre, the game requires players to throw out everything they know about role-playing and strategy games and embrace something altogether new and fresh. Frantic, energetic action mixes with thought-provoking tactical gameplay, all within a beautifully rendered fantasy setting and presented through a captivating, emotional narrative. Dripping with style and originality, Knights in the Nightmare delivers an unforgettable experience.

Features

  • Innovative stylus-based active battle system
  • Avoid enemy attacks while issuing orders to your army of knights
  • Battles progress in real time; the situation changes with each passing moment
  • Over 100 knights to recruit, each with personal histories and relationships to other characters offering a deep tactical contrast to the game's frantic, fast-paced action gameplay
  • Exciting tale that ties into the series established by Riviera and Yggdra Union
