Update: Neverending Nightmare's creative director, Matt Gilgenbach, has offered a statement on the game's Kickstarter success.

Gilgenbach is understandably excited about the game reaching its goal and offered the following statement:

I’m overjoyed that we raised the funds to make Neverending Nightmares happen. We have such an amazing community of dedicated backers that worked as hard as I did to make this game possible. It is truly remarkable that even though we only had 2/3rds of our budget a few days ago, we were able to exceed our funding goal with time to spare. I want to thank each and every backer for believing in the project!

Original story:

It came down to the wire with less than 10 hours to spare, but Neverending Nightmares has now achieved and surpassed its Kickstarter goal.

The game was seeking $99,000 in pledges, and with six hours to go, the game currently has $100,273 in backer money.

Neverending Nightmares comes from the same minds that created the rhythm shooter Retro/Grade, but Neverending Nightmares is a much different game. Based on creator Matt Gilgenbach's battles with depression, Neverending Nightmares seeks to create a disturbing psychological experience.
