Neverending Nightmares - the metaphorically autobiographical tale of Retro/Grade developer Matt Gilgenbach's battle with depression and OCD - is coming to Steam and Ouya on 26th September.
Neverending Nightmares was initially a Kickstarter project where it squeaked past its $99K goal with $106,722 last September. It was part of Ouya's Free the Games Fund promotion, where the console manufacturer matched the Kickstarter backers, so the game's budget was actually double that.
Hopefully it will do well as Gilgenbach's previous effort, Retro/Grade, cost $140K to make over the course of several years and failed to break even. Although it was the deep depression that resulted in that brought about Gilgenbach's inspiration for Neverending Nightmares, so if this takes off it will have all been worth it.
Developer Infinitap Games released this spooky new trailer for Neverending Nightmares. Hopefully Gilgenbach's life isn't quite so dire, but he likely decided not to include moments like his totally baller marriage proposal in the narrative. It wouldn't really fit, ya know?
