About this gameAre you ready for this? Then step into the dark world of Lost In The Nightmare and face your darkest dreams..
An 'interactive horror adventure' by Ahmet Kelesh, with pre-rendered 3D graphics and cutscenes with cinematical camera pitches.
Pre-rendered 3D backgrounds taken from the Half-Life engine are used in Lost In The Nightmare. I'm preparing the HL maps with Valve Hammer Editor by myself and using modified versions of the textures and models of the mods like They Hunger, Medieval World.
The main character is Burak Guney, a private dedective who used to work for the police. You are hired to find three university students who got lost in a forest near the Karabalta Town while camping. They have been lost for 3 months and the police couldn't find any clue what happened to them. You'll stay in Karatas Hotel during your investigate. But soon you will learn that something is wrong with this cursed town....
Nominated, Best Sound Effects 2005
I wouldn't call this a "game", there are no real puzzles and the story goes completely linear.
That said, the story really catches you and makes you want to know more, and the music helps a lot in creating the atmosphere, maybe an Interactive Story format was more appropriate for what the author had in mind.
I had the feeling of being testing an concept more than playing a finished game. I would really love to see a remake of Lost in the Nightmare with a clearer concept, as Interactive Story or as Adventure game, but this middle point doesn't make justice to all the effort that has been put on it.
In conclusion: a good story and atmosphere in the wrong body.
And about the "2 eyes poked but still able to see": I was all aware of this illogicallity, it actually had a hidden symbollic meaning that I don't want to reveal. And also this didn't happen in reality, just in nightmare; this is anothyer excuse for the illogical event :P
Thanks again for your comments!
To be honest, it wasn't an entirely positive experience. I'd like to make some comments, because I really expected more from a game this size. And because I think it could be improved.
First, I agree on the translation problem. The game will continue to suffer until that's fixed. It's hard to understand the dialogue otherwise.
But I disagree with the other stuff. I can't see any branching story. It all seems quite linear: there don't seem to be any subquests or alternative approaches to doing things. It's just clicking around until you find the action that proceeds the story another step.
It would be great if you could find a key or something behind a couch and open one of the other rooms and gain an insight into the other inhabitants of the town, so it wouldn't seem so much like a stage set
Anyway; today I have bougth a large host space. I will upload a revised version as soon as possible; so the new players won't have to install patch or something..
Unfortunately, the English grammar skills of the author are notoriously lacking. It would be great to get some help from native speakers in the future, as your writting skills are obviously very good.
