In Neverending Nightmares you’ll step into the shoes of Thomas, who awakens from a terrible nightmare only to find that he is still dreaming. As he descends deeper through the layers of hellish dreamscapes, he must hide from horrifying apparitions and outrun his inner demons. He must discover which of the horrors he encounters are manifestations of his own psychological state and figure out what reality will be when he finally wakes up.

The game has been called both gorgeous and repulsive. Its development has been both therapeutic and torturous for Matt Gilgenbach, who hopes the game will facilitate awareness and  better understanding of mental disorders.


  • Terrifying nightmare worlds inspired by real life struggles with OCD and depression
  • Black and white artwork with splatters of red creates a distinctive moody and dark atmosphere
  • Branching narrative features 3 completely different endings
  • A dynamic lighting system gives the ever present darkness a character of its own
  • IGF nominated composer Skyler McGlothlin delivers a haunting and oppressive dark ambient score

On September 26th, you’ll have a chance to see all of this for yourself as Neverending Nightmares releases on PC and Ouya.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
