The lights are on
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:
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!
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.

Our TakeNeverending Nightmares looks like a new take on the horror video game experience. I'm happy to see Neverending Nightmares achieve its funding goal, and I am looking forward to checking out the final game.
