Forums Games Information
Knights in the Nightmare is a game developed by Sting for the Nintendo DS as Episode IV of the Dept. Heaven series. The gameplay is a unique mashup of RTS, RPG and Bullet Hell elements, all blended perfectly to create an absolutely frenetic strategy experience for the touch screened hand held.

The game was released September 25th, 2008 in Japan, and was quite well received, even being nominated for an excellence award at the Japan Media Arts Festival in 2008. Atlus USA took up localization efforts, releasing an English translation of the game in the US on June 2nd, 2009.
The story starts out with a mysterious armor-clad woman named Maria releasing the Wisp (you!) from Aventheim Castle. Monsters have started to appear around the kingdom and Aventheim's forces are slowly being picked off. Using this Wisp's strange power, the souls of the dead knights fight all manner of monsters as well as fighting off those that would steal the throne, all in pursuit of the truth. Just what happened in Aventheim that caused the monsters to rise and begin destroying everyone and everything? Who exactly is Maria, and what is she trying to accomplish by accompanying the Wisp?
