(Can't Wake Up)
A Nightmare Creatures remake that has been in the works since 2017 is no more. Albino Moose Games appears to have quietly announced the shelving of this project, dashing the dreams of many survival horror fans.
Although the website for the project is still up, the official trailer has been pulled down from YouTube. Fortunately, someone put up a mirror a few years back, so you can check out the trailer for yourself:
If you're unfamiliar with Nightmare Creatures, that's not a huge surprise. This survival horror game first made its debut for the PC, PS1, and N64 way back in 1997. A sequel followed in 2000 and a mobile port of the game arrived in 2003. Since then, there hasn't been much in the way of new releases in this franchise. That's certainly understandable considering that survival horror was more or less dominated by Resident Evil and Silent Hill for the next decade after that.
Now, Albino Moose Games has said that they've effectively stopped work on the project. If you were hoping to play a new incarnation of a classic survival horror game, it looks like you're going to be waiting quite a while longer — and you might not get it at all.
