‘Neverending Nightmares’ Is A Horror Game Inspired By Its Maker’s Fight With Mental Illness

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.

  • I dont know why the hand drawn child-like animation disturbs me so much, definitely checking this one out, if I was there Adam I’d give you multiple high fives for this one

      You can always give me a… wi-five. (Sorry)

      I find the art style particularly unsettling because it reminds me of a child’s drawings. Not to say Gilgenbach isn’t a talented artist, but there’s a simplicity to them (the black, white and red) that weirds me out a bit.

    Sometimes I prefer animation (in and out of games) to have this kind of look, it carries a different feel to it. Excellent.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Looks very disturbing considering the art style. Nice.
