Tomorrow I'll be flying out to San Diego for Comic-Con, where you'll be able to find Nightmare Cops and myself at the Behemoth booth (#229) as part of the Friends of the Behemoth showcase.
This Nightmare Cops demo is the result of years of work, with a big push this month to have a demo build for Comic-Con. I'm the programmer, with @JohnnyUtah and @Spazkid on art and @Oney on music. Nightmare Cops will be an official Newgrounds release.
Guest voices in the demo include @RicePirate, @JazLyte, @RomeoJr and @L0LitsMonica! There's a ton of dialog in this game and it's all lip-synced using Talk Head. We made Talk Head in 2012 for this purpose, that is how crazy this project is.
So yeah, you're cops who fight people's nightmares! It's got a whole fully realized world with tons of people who have different perceptions of each other but more importantly you beat the crap out of lots of bad guys and can drive all over town smashing stuff. Pretty much everything in the overworld is breakable for no reason other than we know people will want ot break it.
Here are some teaser screenshots!

You understand the gaming community all too well Tom.
Very nice :)
Absolutely incredible stuff!

This may be my fave character selection screen since Metal Slug
dis exciting :D
Yeeeaaaaa!! this looks so good! I played the demo for it last year at Pico Day and found it really fun! glad to see it's coming along super well!!
Maaan, the Boss level and the tower fight are awesome!
This already looks massively exciting. I can't fathom how much dedication you all were able to put towards making this game happen over such a long period of time. Can't wait to be able to play it.
Looking forward to the game! <3
Looks so fucking hype, my dudes.
Lookin' good! Good luck!
Playing Zombidle, I noticed that Supporters are given a pass on watching ads. It got me thinking: will you incentivize the NG Supporter program by offering codes for in-game skins or beta codes or something for games like Nightmare Cops and others in the future? It might be a cool way to encourage supporters.
Gonna have to figure something out there down the road. I don't think we can do in-game stuff because that requires an outside API, which is generally a no-no with console and on some level probably Steam too. Something with beta codes would be cool though.
All of these stills look STUNNING!! Great work, guys!
Can you make a follow-up post when you get back to update all of us on how it went? :D
This seriously just looks fantastic, straight up, just all good stuff from super talented folk. Hope you get some good reception!
This is looking fantastic! I'm genuinely very excited for this games release.
Keep at the incredible work all you guys!
