Matt Gilgenbach, the creator of the backwards rhythm shooter Retro/Grade, is working on another game that looks totally different from his last project. The game is called Neverending Nightmares, and it’s a psychological horror game, as well as a metaphor for Gilgenbach’s battle with mental illness. We have our first look at it in a new teaser trailer that showcases its hand drawn art and twisted story.
What has me most excited about Neverending Nightmares is the subject matter. The reason I adore the Silent Hill franchise, and specifically Silent Hill 2, is that it used to be a series that wasn’t afraid to tackle taboo topics, like suicide, rape and incest. That’s still uncommon today, and it’s something that definitely intrigues me about this game.
Mental illness is a difficult subject, it’s something that plagues a lot of people, including Gilgenbach. I’m looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Teaser after the jump.
