The lights are on
Neverending Nightmares, the horror game from Retro/Grade developer Matt Gilgenbach, has begun a Kickstarter campaign in order to complete development.
Gilgenbach revealed Neverending Nighmares last month. It's a radical departure from his previous title which was a rhythm-shooter. Gilgenbach describes Neverending Nightmares as a highly personal horror game that is a manifestation of his own personal issues with depression and OCD. Retro/Grade was a critical success, but a "financial failure" as Gilgenbach refers to it, and it caused him to revert into his depression, and inspire him to begin working on the game.
It's a horror-puzzle game with a focus on atmosphere. The player controls Adam who must figure out what is real, and what is a product of his subconsciousness as he continually wakes up in constatnly shifting realities.
You can check out the pitch video for the game below as well as screenshots from the game in the gallery. As a warning, there is some disturbing imagery in both the images and the video. You can check out the game's announcement trailer here. To check out the game's Kickstarter and possibly pledge some money, head here. Matt Gilgenbach will also be on hand in the Indie Megabooth at PAX this week to show off the game.

poor guy hopefully he manages to pull through with his game and life
This game is creepy as hell. I hope they make their goal.
I tried a hallucinogen for the first time the other day. Had an experience very reminiscent of these screen shots...
This looks great! It's a shame I won't be experiencing this, though, for I only play consoles.
If ever given the chance, I'll certainly pick this up.
Looks awesome and disturbing...sign me up!
I just bought Retro/Grade from the indie sale on PSN and completed it on Xtreme from the get-go. It was really fun and well worth the criminally-low $2.50 I bought it for. So I can say that it'd be great to see this get funded and do well.
This seems like it would be a great game. I would play it. But I like the weird stuff.
I mean is this game even in the works? Or is it still on hiatus?
