Of all the things that developer Matt Gilgenbach could have created after Retro/Grade, a rhythm-based shooter in reverse, a horror game seemed among the least likely. Enter Neverending Nightmares, a horror adventure game inspired by the psychological themes of Silent Hill 2 and the defenseless tension of Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

But Neverending Nightmares is also the result of a more personal inspiration, Gilgenbach's own struggle with mental illness. Diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression, Gilgenbach has woven many of his own experiences into Neverending Nightmares, infusing it with a genuine, sometimes jarring horror. See it for yourself (if you dare) in our video preview.

Neverending Nightmares is slated to launch in late 2014, and a Kickstarter for the project is planned to launch soon. Those who want a firsthand look can check out the game later this month at PAX Prime, where it will be shown in booth 885.
