Let's Blather/Cower All Over Neverending Nightmares

Night Terrors

We brought you word of Retro/Grade creator Matt Gilgenbach's Neverending Nightmares a while back, and the pitch definitely didn't tiptoe lightly on the heartstrings. In short, Gilgenbach has spent his whole life struggling with obsessive compulsive disorder and depression, and when Retro/Grade's reverse-shmup antics only succeeded in rewinding money right out of his bank account, his personal demons began haunting him worse than ever. Neverending Nightmares is a psychological horror game born of those miserable experiences, an attempt by Gilgenbach to both expel and explore them. With the game's Kickstarter winding down (and still in need of a bit more aid), I thought I'd play through its gruesomely gorgeous demo and discover just what sort of darkness lies inside. Also, I am a whimpering coward and I waited until nighttime to record. Inevitably, I start freaking out and babbling to myself like a lunatic, as all sensible, sane adults do in order to keep calm. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find a corner and just, er, breathe for a while. Yeah, that sounds nice.
