Developer Matt Gilgenbach has announced (via the PlayStation Blog) that he’ll bring Neverending Nightmares to the PS4 and Vita very soon. Featuring a sketchbook art style inspired by Edward Gorey and a branching storyline that was “greatly influenced” by film director David Lynch, Neverending Nightmares is an atmospheric horror game that mirrors Gilgenbach’s own struggles with depression and OCD:

Neverending Nightmares is a very personal game for me because it’s meant to metaphorically express the experience I’ve had dealing with mental illness — specifically obsessive compulsive disorder and depression. It was a real challenge to develop a game to express those dark feelings, but my team and I have created a unique interactive experience. I know I called it a “game” up above, but I think “interactive experience” is a more apt description.

In the game, you play as Thomas, a weak young man with asthma who wakes up from a terrible nightmare. As you continue to progress through the game, you discover that he is trapped in a series of nightmares — each more hellish than the last. Your goal is to hide and flee from the terrifying apparitions that Thomas is defenseless against in order to finally “wake up” in the real world.

Neverending Nightmares will be available to download through the PlayStation Store sometime this Spring.
