This {{platformer}} was released in November of 1999 exclusively for the original PlayStation. However, it's been rumored a N64 version of the game was planned, advertised, and completed--but it's not entirely clear ''whether or not it was released.'' Wikipedia claims the game's release was cancelled, but there's a full English-language [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes ROM image]] available on the 'net that seems to imply it ''did'' see some release (if limited) in Europe, and of course, some claim to have seen or purchased it themselves. It's an UrbanLegendOfZelda on a huge scale, related to an entire game's existence. The PS1 version definitely exists though, and isn't difficult to find (indeed it's included on the Playstation store's PSOne Classics) --so it's perfectly tropeable for us, of course. Now, where to start...?

Enter Ruff and Tumble, a pair of [[BrotherSisterTeam siblings]] who have taken it upon themselves to rescue the Winks from Nitekap and Threadbear. Fearlessly, they enter the [[DreamLand world of dreams]] to hunt out the missing Winks. Armed with only a candle and a teddy bear (well, and the ability to transform into a number of more powerful forms), the two siblings set out to stop the evil Nitekap and ensure the world's good dreams continue for all eternity! This {{platformer}} was released in 1998 for the original PlayStation. However, more unusually is the fact that a N64 version of the game was planned, advertised, and completed--but it's not entirely clear ''whether or not it was released.'' Wikipedia claims the game's release was cancelled, but there's a full English-language [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes ROM image]] available on the 'net that seems to imply it ''did'' see some release (if limited) in Europe, and of course, some claim to have seen or purchased it themselves.
