[Daily article] July 5: Nights into Dreams…

Nights into Dreams… is an action video game developed by Sonic Team
and published by Sega for the Sega Saturn in 1996. The story follows two
teenagers, Claris and Elliot, who enter a dream world called Nightopia
where all dreams take place. With the help of Nights, they begin a
journey to stop the evil ruler Wizeman from destroying Nightopia and
consequently the real world. Nights flies through Claris and Elliot’s
dreams, gathering energy to defeat Wizeman and save Nightopia.
Development began soon after the release of Sonic & Knuckles in 1994,
and was led by Sonic Team veterans Yuji Naka, Naoto Ohshima, and Takashi
Iizuka. Naka began the project with flight as a main theme, and Ohshima
designed the character Nights to resemble an angel that could fly like a
bird. An analogue controller, known as the Saturn 3D controller, was
designed alongside the game. Nights into Dreams… received positive
reviews upon release; critics praised the graphics, gameplay,
soundtrack, and atmosphere. It has been included on multiple lists as
the best Sega Saturn game of all time, as well as one of the best video
games ever made.
