‘Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends’ Indie Game Needs Your Support
by Conan Simmons – March 2, 2021 – 9:02 pm
A new independent video game is in development and looking to find community support via Kickstarter.
Based on Winsor McCay’s groundbreaking 1905 comic strip, ‘Little Nemo and the Nightmare Fiends’ is a new hand drawn animation, platform video game currently being developed for PC and Mac.
Developed by Chris Totten and programmed by Ben Cole, ‘Little…
To be 100% clear, my issue with Puella Magi Madoka Magica isn’t that I think magical girls going grim is intrinsically bad. Heck, the first season of Sailor Moon kills off 80% of the core cast in the final episode, albeit temporarily, and that was way back in 1992 – magical girl media has done grim.
It’s that, well, here’s a dude with seriously reactionary gender politics and an established history of writing media that displays an uncomfortable focus on teenage girls getting emotionally tortured for the entertainment of an adult male audience, waltzing into a genre that’s historically been targeted primarily at young girls, pulling his usual shit, promptly being lauded by critics for Revolutionising The Genre With His Bold Vision™ in spite of the fact that his material just isn’t terribly original (and much of that critical adulation carries a barely disguised subtext that he’s somehow elevated or dignified magical girl media by ridding it of its more conspicuously “girly” elements, to boot), and ultimately inspiring a wave of tedious imitators that threaten to crowd more traditional magical girl media out of the spotlight.
The fact that much of the show’s run isn’t particularly well written is about fourth or fifth on the list of what’s wrong with it.
I’m going to do something a little different here today.
I was a 90′s kid, and it really was a different time. Like a few year’s back I was talking to the daughter of one of my cousins, and she mentioned that for her generation there wasn’t any really scary shows on. Like as a kid there was all sorts of horror anthology. Some of it was well done, others were more gross out. I loved this stuff as a kid, and as I grew older I grew to love horror anthology movies and the odd show targetted towards older audiences. There’s copies of Tales from the Crypt that have been calling to me at Walmart for a long time now, just I keep putting it off until I see them on sale.
So, today I want to talk about the horror anthology shows I grew up with. Just what kinda shaped me, so you all know who to blame. I want to rank these, but aside from the first two being at the bottom the rest were up in the air for various reasons. So, let me show you what hurt me.
Grisly Tales for Gruesome Kids. Ahh yes, this quaint little gem from the British Isles…fuck this shit was dark. Like so fucking dark and cynical. It really had the tone of those stories parents tell their kids to get them to behavior while mommy is nursing a hangover. I really hated this one as a kid, but I was always kinda drawn to it. I mean, kids were meeting horrific fates in these stories, sometimes over issues I felt were overblown. It basically answered the question of how dark can you make a children’s show. Love the stop motion though, and still can hear the intro in the back of my mind.
Goosebumps.As a 90′s kid, I was required to either watch the show or read the books. Since I was young when the show started with it’s Y-7 warning to parents, I mostly did the former. It had really good production values for the time, but looking back I feel it was rather tame. In comparison to the other live-action show on this list, I feel like it had better production values but the stories were way weaker. As a kid who grew up with Goosebumps, whenever I hear “What a Twist!” I don’t think of Shamalyan, I think of RL Stein. Some twists were good, others just existed to screw over the leads at the last second. There was also this one episode where the neighbor was a monster that always made me throw up when he ate bugs. Every fucking time.
Freaky Stories. Ahh man, a Canadian classic. Part of YTV’s “Keep it Weird” era, I remember this originally being like a holiday thing around Halloween but then it got it’s own series. It was retellings of various urban legends. Some scary, some just gross. The art style changed in each short to suit the story, every one was told by a narrator starting with “This is a true story. Happened to a friend of a friend of mine…” Some were made sci-fi, others more noir. And between bits there were the antics of Larry the cockroach and Maurice the maggot. It is definitely a product of the 90′s and I loved it so much.
Are You Afraid of the Dark? I always felt like this was the better version of Goosebumps. Sure, the acting was worse at times but the stories were way more original. I was afraid of chameleons for so long because on one episode. But the one thing I really liked was how it could go either way. Some stories could end with the protagonists winning, others end with them being defeated. And some of the designs were really creepy looking. It kept it fresh. And what kid wouldn’t want to be part of a group like the Midnight Society, meeting up in the woods to tell scary stories by the campfire. That my my dream as a kid…or being Batman’s sidekick. Either or. This is probably the one I would want to show my niece when she gets older.
Tales from the Cryptkeeper. The animated series. I first met the Cryptkeeper through this show and the tie-in kid’s game show. Honestly, this was probably the best one of the bunch. It had good stories, it had good art. I’m a little more distant to it because it wasn’t on one of the channels I regularly watched, so when I did catch it felt more like a treat but it just never fully clicked for me. The whole series is officially on youtube, so at times it’s tempting to go back and check it out.
That’s it. That’s the show.

Like I know people don’t like animation and think it’s a kids thing but like honestly I think it would be nice if people cared more. Not even cared, just remembered animation isn’t just kids stuff. Like I know you think it is only for kids but I don’t know what you think about the fuck ton of anime that isn’t targets predominantly to younger audiences is. Like not even thinking about hentai I am talking about like madoka magica, attack on titan, scums wish, kakegurui, and Tokyo ghoul just to name a few popular/mature/adult anime. But like even if they know nothing of anime what do they think the purpose of family guy is… bojack… disenchantment… do they forget that they are animation because quite frankly I do think that is the case.
