Knights in the Nightmare Remaster is a remastered version of the original Knights in the Nightmare which was released in 2008 for the Nintendo DS and 2010 for the PlayStation Portable. The game follows the protagonist amnesiac Wisp who rallies the souls of undead knights to fight for Aventheim, their besotted kingdom, in a frenetic mix of shmup (shoot ’em up) and RTS strategy. Players uncover the history of Aventheim as well as the identity of Wisp, slowly piecing together a grand tapestry of betrayal, sacrifice, and love.
