The Story

Neverending Nightmares follows the main character, Thomas, as he constantly wakes up in different "nightmares" and must survive through different areas in the nightmares. The nightmare always restarts when he comes across a serious cause for depression, is killed by a monstrous creature, or commits self-harm.

There is another character, Gabby, who is his sister. During the game though, her roles change.

In this game there are three possible endings you can arrive at depending on certain choices you make. Different locations to explore within the nightmares include a mansion, the woods, a hospital, a cemetery, and an insane asylum.

Inspiration and Art Style

The inspiration for this game comes from the lead creators' struggles with depression and OCD. Their interpretations provide an interesting and different take on how each person goes through depression differently.

The art style is very different from other games because it is a pencil sketch type style. Also note, there is only one color in this black and white game: red; and it is usually very vibrant and obvious. Some of the images in the game, mainly the self harm ones, are very graphic and gross.

If you have a difficult or unpleasant response to blood, gore, dolls, mannequins, or anything involving depression, it would be best to skip this game.

My Opinion: It's Amazing!

I honestly love this game and the different way it portrays the struggle with depression. The art style is fantastic, it's a very simple game, yet also very creepy. Besides the deep backstory, the atmosphere is also great! It is filled with random whispers, screams, and creepy music.

I would gladly recommend this game to anyone as long as they can handle it. Everyone who goes through depression, myself included, experiences it differently. No one is the same and Neverending Nightmares really proves that.

Extra Notes

If you are interested in this game, but don't want to buy it, you can watch walkthroughs of it on YouTube. There are some gamers on Youtube who have played it including Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, and H2O Delirious.

Also due to the topic covered in this game, I feel I should add this:

If you are going through depression and get to the point that you are having suicidal thoughts, please reach out to a friend or anyone who will listen. It's not worth killing yourself and leaving behind family and friends that care for you.

If you need to talk to someone, here is the 24 hour National Suicide Prevention Hotline number. If you or someone you know is going through a tough time please reach out for support!
