Happy 25th anniversary to NiGHTS! I didn't even realize it was this year as I introduced my daughter to it for the first time. I guess now I'll have to finally pick up one of those Saturn memory cartridges to save our progress :) #NiGHTS25th #NiGHTSintoDreams pic.twitter.com/bsqw7nBfjE— Erica Pinto (@psyham) July 5, 2021
