On a very snowy and dark morning, Yuuki Shinozaki, a shy middle schooler, was preparing for her trip to a farewell party of her school...but an unfortunate tragedy happened. When Yuuki was helping her friend, Taiga, to look for his lost handphone, she was taken mysteriously to a lost, dark dimension where a big, mysterious mansion existed. Yuuki didn't know...that this is all just the beginning of her NIGHTMAREs in THE SNOWy and freezing night...

This game is heavily inspired by Fatal Frame (sets in a mansion.) It is recommended to play this game in a dark room with headphones attached at night. Remember that when you're lost, try examining everything as this is a story-and-exploration based game ;)

Gameplay features:
-3:00 to 5:00 hours of normal gameplay, and about 1:30 to 2:00 hours on NewGame+ speedrun
-Stamina system
-Unique deaths
-Seven endings, with one ending being canon among them

The main characters of the game are:
YUUKI, a shy middleschooler.

TAIGA, a somewhat coward but reliable guy. He got crush on Yuuki.

KAYAKO, an extremely tomboy & tsundere girl.

Oh, don't forget to download the VX Ace RTP: http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/run-time-package and install the font that I put inside the game folder.

Hello! I just finished your game recently with a total of 8 hours and a half of play time! And that's just the first playthrough!
I'm going to dig in more with the New Game+ mode on. Your game is so great I got addicted to it.

Though I've to play through THOSE again to achieve all endings.

I might have to edit your game a little bit just for a faster play this time,or maybe not if I'm too lazy haha.

I also wondering what the difference that has been made with the New Game+ mode on.

PS.The translated project might have to be postponed for a long while because I am kind of very busy now!

Don't worry! I'll translate your game once I'm done dealing with my own business.

And I'm looking forward to Restless Dreams,too!
Worry not, the New Game+ has an option to skip 90% of chapter 4 and so far, my best speedrun is around one and a half hour :D
Hey I read some reviews of your game and got very interested in it, i love rpg horror games and started a YouTube channel for let's plays. I'm checking with you to see if it's alright that i have a series on your game.
I have some problem, when you in the place full of shibito, (the one before waterfall place) when i enter the room which is shirokage in, Kayako won't go inside. The screen not changing and in the end the invisible Kayako being caught by shibito. Plz fix this because i wanna know what happen next.
Hey, thanks for letting me download this! I am currently doing a Walkthrough on it and I am enjoying it so far!


Here is the first part! Second part soon, and I apologize for bad quality, something happened when it was being processed...
When I start to play the game,, it always get dialog box says "File Corrupted"..
I have been playing this game for a year, I had started it as a Christmas special on my channel last year. Now this year as a Christmas special I had finished it and gotten the True Ending. It took 28 videos but it's now done. Here is a link to the playlist with all 28 videos of my Let's Plays for Nightmare of The Snow; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHtGaXpXWC18cwHlvsWk5gr4Ow4Efyxcz
Hello! It's been a while but we finally managed to start translating your game again. And this time I've been doing it with my teammates. It may be around April until we finished and released Thai version.

Also, I have a question to ask. Where did you get the main theme song from? Ws it original? or from another game? I thought its name was Hisame or something.

It's just that we want to make a Fanmade-Cover with our own lyrics being sung along your theme. So I need to inform you about this and ask about the details of this song.

Thank you very much!

(Also sent PM.)
Hello, the game shows an error message sayind Audio/SE/Ice7 file is missing... Do you maybe know where the problem comes from ? Thank you very much.

Requirements below:

1. Less than 3 Psycho Points acquired by the finale of Chapter 2.
2. Win against Psycho Yuuki (winning accumulates 1 Psycho Point, ensure you have 0 or 1 before the fight starts).
3. On Chapter 5, win against the Headmaster.

One more thing, if you exorcised Yuuki's Dad in Chapter 1, did you pick up the Katana after?
Surely i'm in love with the story!! i can't hardly wait for your next project, hope the story will also be the greatest one too!! *btw, i always got hysteric whenever the chasing scene is on the spot!! but that's what makes this game is pretty much scary i think...* :D
