Dungeon-crawling JRPG Mary Skelter: Nightmares will be arriving on Steam and GOG today according to a press release from the game’s publisher.

Mary Skelter: Nightmares features Jack and the Blood Team, an oddball band of heroes who bravely battle baddies in a gigantic living prison tower. We had the chance to preview the Vita version of the game at last year’s E3. Enemies will move throughout the jail in real-time, forcing you and your team to stay on the toes. Giant Nightmares inhabit entire sections of the tower and can only be combated after you’ve accomplished some goals in particular sections of the massive living prison. Have a gander at the game’s PC Trailer to see what it’s all about:

Aside from a fantastical cast of characters, Mary Skelter: Nightmares offers up three distinct gameplay elements. The dungeon crawling aspect has players navigating traps, finding loot, and cautiously approaching encounters with terrible monsters. The battles themselves are carried out in classic JRPG style in every respect. Lastly, players will be able to bond with their team of fairy tale fighters in a visual novel style of storytelling. It’s three games in one and you don’t even have to order it from an overly-energetic man in a polo shirt!

If you’re down for some great dungeon-crawling JRPG action, you’ll be able to grab Mary Skelter: Nightmares on Steam and on GOG for $14.99 or your regional equivalent, a 40% launch discount off of the game’s retail price of $24.99.

Disclosure: GOG works with TechRaptor for affiliate partnership, and TechRaptor earns a small commission off purchases made from links in this article. In addition, GOG provides a monthly giveaway to our Pack Hunter members.

What do you think of Mary Skelter: Nightmares? Does the combination of JRPG, dungeon crawling, and visual novel elements appeal to you or do you think that the game might be spreading itself too thin? Let us know in the comments below!
