Nightmare Nostalgia’s 2022 Big Halloween Giveaway!

It’s that time again nostalgic nuggets! A little more than five years ago, I started this blog after writing for various horror outlets as a means to express myself fully as well as a useful therapy tool. Because, hey… nothing makes me happier than talking about Halloween, horror movies, and retro pop culture of yesteryear. Well, maybe except giving away stuff and this year is a doozy! Throughout the year, I scavage through antique, thrift stores, and the internet to find just the right treasures to give to one lucky fan during the Halloween season, and I think I may have outdone myself this time around. Nothing really makes me happier than making other people smile and boy I could use it this time around,

I recently lost my best friend of 14 years, my little old lady and emotional-support animal, Lydia. Things have been very tough for me since having to cope with this devastating loss so with this website reaching a milestone of five wonderful years and over 50,000 followers, I wanted to express my gratitude to those who offered some kind words during this difficult time. The same people who have been following my incoherent ramblings for close to a decade now. So thank you truly from the bottom of my dark heart for that. And with respect, I wanted to dedicate this Halloween haul to the little pup who always sat in my lap while writing these trash articles for you guys.

So here we are. Now, sitting at 25,000 fans on Facebook I’m kind of beside myself and humbly want to thank each and every one of you.

Alright my nostalgic nuggets! Sekai Games and Invertmouse have offered me some codes to giveaway to YOU, the fans of Nightmare Nostalgia for some virtual Halloween fun with the upcoming horror -anime adventure game, CLEA!

What is CLEA you ask? Well, it’s a thrilling skill-based survival horror adventure. Coming to Nintendo Switch™ and releasing this week on October 30th, players can experience a Halloween ghoulish fest with console exclusive featured costumes of characters from games published by Sekai Games, (soon to be revealed)!

After experimenting on the Chaos Servants, Clea’s parents have let the monsters loose in the Whitlock Mansion.
