Nightmare Creatures was one of the first horror games I ever played way back on the original PlayStation. When I was sick of getting my ass kicked in Battle Toads (seriously, that game was tough) I’d take a break and pop in the game for a little monster slaying action. Sadly, I never finished the second game but that certainly didn’t keep me from getting incredibly psyched for Nightmare Creatures III. In fact, I enjoyed the series so much I included it on our list of the 17 horror games that need to see the light of day. Alas, it’s six months later and no developer has yet to hear my cries.
But now I can at least get a glimpse of what the game could’ve looked like, with this handful of delicious concept art from artist Arthur Hugot’s online portfolio. They’re incredibly cool and the enemy designs are even a little reminiscent of the torchered creatures from The Suffering series (which also deserves another sequel!). Head past the break for a look at what could’ve been.
