Hi everyone! I've got some great news for Compile Heart fans and those of you who love fantastic Japanese 1st person dungeon crawlers, as we're bringing Mary Skelter: Nightmares, a dark and unique fairytale-themed dungeon crawler to PC this summer!  

I can't wait to share release details with you, but for the moment I can say that I've really been enjoying the deep combat and stylish twists and turns of Mary Skelter: NightmaresDon't just take my word for it though, here are some of the great reviews that the game received on its console debut: 

Gaming Ages said: "There are many ways this game could’ve come off as just another Japanese DRPG. To its enormous credit, it avoids all those pitfalls, and makes an interesting game in the process." A-  

Digitally Downloaded said: "Mary Skelter is sublime. By turns darkly sensual and horrific, it's also beautiful, ravishing, and backed by truly expert level design and a clean, clever combat system. This game is too different to effectively compare to other dungeon crawlers, but I must say, of all the many games in this genre that I've played, this one will sit with me for a very long time into the future.  " 4.5/5 

Dual Shockers said: "Mary Skelter: Nightmares provides the dungeon crawling experience fans of the genre crave. The game offers a unique battle system that requires attention and skill to master, many different ways to customize characters, and large dungeons to explore with many hidden rooms and valuable loot. " 8.5/10 

Video Chums said: "Mary Skelter: Nightmares is one of the most delightful and impressive RPGs that I've played in a long time. Both old-school dungeon crawler fans and those curious about the genre definitely have a bloody enjoyable adventure ahead of them. " 8.2/10 

More on Mary Skelter: Nightmares 

The 'Jail' suddenly appeared a number of years ago, sinking the city deep into the ground. There, this impenetrable living prison 666 metres beneath the surface, held power over eerie creatures called "Marchens." Within the prison was a boy named Jack - living a life of eternal suffering, tortured day in and day out, in a world where all dreams, hopes, peace, and humanity had been lost for as long as the people could remember. Then one day, amidst the darkness that prevailed, a girl who called herself a member of the Blood Team appeared before Jack, holding giant scissors dripping in blood! This marked the beginning of fate - of Jack's and the Blood Maidens' escape from the Jail... 

Jack and the Blood Team will face countless perils in regaining all that has been lost, to finally escape once and for all!  

• Customize your characters with 20+ jobs, each with their own unique skillset and stats!
