A Nightmare to Remember is the first case of Wintervale. It is also the first case of Hallowsville.

Plot

The player was welcomed by Chief Owen Brennan to the Wintervale Police Department during the local district's Halloween celebrations. When the player was introduced to their first partner Detective Samantha Massey, Chief Brennan suggested that they go to the festival and patrol the crowd. Upon their investigation there, they body of festival organizer Anthony Marcus on one of the parade floats.

After flagging three suspects, coroner Zaki Buhari had discovered that the victim didn't die at the parade, but at the district's outskirts at the haunted Old Mulberry Lane. After flagging two more suspects and collecting motives, psychic Abigail Peregrine told the detectives she knew the killer's motive for murder. After talking to Madam Peregrine about the true story behind the victim's dark past, they finished up the case by collecting evidence and finally arresting the head of Hallowsville's financial committee Sebastian Jenkins guilty of the homicide.

During arrest, Sam pointed out evidence Sebastian left, causing him to slip up and confess about the murder. He told them that the very same car crash that Anthony's parents died in also had savagely injured his wife. His wife Ivana had stumbled to the Jenkins residence and died in her husband's hands. Despite him paying his wife's buriers to keep her real death under wraps, the victim had told him that he knew about his wife's death and would tell the crowd at the festival about it, which angered Sebastian into shooting him the back with his old pistol. The Honorable Lyon then opted to sentence Sebastian to 30 years of jail.

In the aftermath of the trial, the player met their second partner Damien Hansell briefly before Chief Brennan assigned them to investigate further into a couple of matters. They found a newspaper with a single testimony to the police from Abigail Peregrine, saying that someone was looking for revenge and cut the Marcus family's lives short. They talked to her and she told them that there was no reason or evidence behind the car crash and Ivana's death. Upon examining the crash scene further, they found a clawed glove with the dried blood of Sebastian's wife, proving that she was not killed by the car crash. They told Sebastian this; he could now finally have some closure as he donated his lfe savings to the police to thank them.

Before reporting to Chief Brennan, they also assisted Holly Becker in retrieving a photo of the former young couple. Not too long after that, field expert Annika Larsson told them she had discovered that someone had switched cars with the Marcus family and slashing the brakes of the new car on the night of the crash. She confirmed that the family car must be somewhere in the car scrapyard where the sabotaged car was taken from. After being welcomed by the rest of the team, Chief Brennan then gave the player their outfit and badge and told them to take the rest of the night off, since they would have yet another mystery to unravel when they returned.
