Neverending Nightmares appears on Kickstarter
I am pretty sure we’ve all had a fair share of nightmares in our lives, it kind of comes with the territory when you’re into horror games. Some people, however, are unfortunate enough to have nightmares for a different reason: depression. Designer Matt Gilgenbach, who created the rhythm game Retro/Grade, is one of those people, so he decided the best way to deal with those nightmares was to share them.
Neverending Nightmares is an exploration-based horror game that promises a branching story and a focus on immersing the player into the game. As stated in a previous article, that macabre art-style you can see in the picture (as well as in the video below) was inspired by the famous illustrator Edward Gorey, which is perhaps the biggest selling point of the game for me. So far, I also like how items the player can interact with are colored.
The game is currently in a fresh Kickstarter campaign, which aims to raise a total of $99,000. So far, the game has been announced for Windows, Mac, Linux and Ouya. The fundraiser will run for another 32 days, so let’s hope it gets funded!
