[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]

Pie for Breakfast Studios, an award-winning game studio blending play with the arts, and independent studio PxlPlz will be bringing their game Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends, to the Nintendo Switch. The developers are currently raising money for the game on Kickstarter, seeking a funding goal of $70,000 and made the announcement via a Kickstarter update. The game was named a “Project We Love” by Kickstarter on the first day of the campaign. Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends has been called “the best use of public domain I’ve seen in a video game” by’s Frank Cifaldi and “a dream come true for fans of the little dreamer” by Big Boss Battle’s Bryan Taylor.

Little Nemo is inspired by Winsor McCay’s landmark 1905 comic strip, Little Nemo in Slumberland. Fans of non-linear platform games such as Shantae and Demon’s Crest, or retro action games like Little Samson will find a lot to love in Little Nemo!

About the game:

Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends, as in the 1905 comic strip, follows the adventures of a 7-year-old boy in the world of his dreams. Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends finds Nemo and his friends fighting off the invasion of the Nightmare Fiends, who threaten the existence of Slumberland itself!

Players control Nemo and his 3 friends: the magic-wielding Princess of Slumberland, the mischievous clown Flip, and the agile royal guard Peony, an original character created for this game. Each character has different abilities that help them navigate the dangers in Slumberland. The game offers a system that lets players switch between characters quickly, allowing them to use different characters’ abilities in tandem for powerful combinations – perfect for exploration and speedrunning!

Featuring hand-drawn, keyframed artwork and animation, Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends combines the exquisite art and wild dreams of the original comic with reimagined characters and new adventures. The game is currently in early prototype form and is tentatively slated to release in 2022.

Number of players: 1
