Nightmare in the Dark is an action platformer game released in 2000 for the Neo Geo arcade system. There was once a grave keeper who lives at the corner of the town’s cemetery. Due to his unpleasing appearance, the grave keeper decided to stay away from the town’s people. One night, the gravedigger discovered that a few graves have been desecrated. Being a good person, he decided to take it on himself to stop the grave robbers. However, what he found was more sinister as the dead started walking.
