Neverending Nightmares set to disturb on Sept. 26

New, 6 comments

As we've chronicled here on Polygon, developer Matt Gilgenbach has had a long, emotional journey bringing the highly personal Neverending Nightmares to life. That road will finally come to an end on Sept. 26 when the debut release from Infinitap Games comes to Steam and Ouya.

Nightmares, which was successfully Kickstarted in September of last year, is a psychological horror game inspired with Gilgenbach's own struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder. Gilgenbach's last project was a rhythm/shoot 'em up hybrid called Retro/Grade and it absorbed a debilitating amount of his time at the price of strained relationships and damage to his own mental health. It sold so few copies that Gilgenbach considered quitting development entirely.

Rather that give up, Gilgenbach took the commercial failure of that project — and the dark period of his life it triggered — and used it as inspiration for Neverending Nightmares. If you think you've got the stomach for it, we've got the launch trailer above.
