Trivia[]

  • The name 'Nightmare Time' is keeping with the Not Your Seed motif that is being developed throughout the Hatchetfield productions. Not Your Seed first appears as a song in TGWDLM, and later a guitar riff from the song can be heard in Black Friday's Made In America. This same riff can be heard at the beginning of the Nightmare Time trailer, and the series's title is a quote from the original song ("And look what happens, nightmare time").
  • Part of the song playing in Nightmare Time's trailer can be found on Jeff Blim's 'Nightmare Time.' Instagram highlights. Posted around late-April 2020, it caused many fans to speculate as to what this music was for, many believing it to be for Nerdy Prudes Must Die. A clip of Jeff playing a different song can be found in the same highlight, posted around late-September 2020.
  • In an interview with Julia Delbel, Nick Lang revealed that there was a discarded Nightmare Time story named Ethan Doesn't Die.
