Nightmare of Decay, the new retro action-horror

Try to escape from the Nightmare of Decay.

Are you a fan of horror games? Do you miss the old retro vibes from the early Resident Evil games? Well, this latest first-person action horror game may be for you. Developed and produced by Checkmaty, Nightmare of Decay is a new horror game now available on Steam that can satisfy both of those needs. And, it’s incredibly affordable.

Nightmare of Decay

After going to bed one night you awaken to find yourself trapped in a manor infested with zombies, psychotic cultists, and a horde of other horrors. You must utilize an assortment of different weapons and limited resources in a brutal fight for survival as you try to escape from the nightmare…or die trying.

Like the Resident Evil franchise, much of Nightmare of Decay’s gameplay utilizes stealth, saving ammo, and sneaking up on enemies. Despite being a first-person shooter, going in guns a-blazin’ may not be the best of strategies. This game requires a bit more work than that.

Game features:

  • Explore: Navigate and explore an expansive multi-level manor.
  • Fight: Fight against a variety of different enemy types including shambling zombies and gun toting cultists.
  • Survive: Limited ammo and resources encourage a more hardcore survival experience.

Additionally, many have praised Nightmare of Decay and its experience. Currently, the 662 reviews on Steam have garnered it an overwhelmingly positive score. One reviewer noted the game channels “Resident Evil vibes.” For example, at the start of the game where the zombie turns its head towards the player like Resident Evil 1.

How much is it?

You can pick up Nightmare of Decay right now for just $4.99 on Steam for the PC. That’s right—for just the small price of $5, this game can be yours. Combined with its low-poly textures, survival-focused gameplay, and poking around a creepy mansion, Nightmare of Decay brings back that nostalgic Resident Evil feeling while holding up to modern standards.
