Earlier this year it was confirmed that the experimental psychological thriller Neverending Nightmares from the mind of Matt Gilgenbach would be headed to both the PS4 and Vita sometime in 2016. Today, it was revealed on the PlayStation Blog that the game launches with cross-buy support and a PlayStation Plus discount on May 3, 2016.
The game is intensely personal and features a number of branching scenarios and possible endings. In a lengthy post, Gilgenbach explained some of the inspiration behind the horror title:
One of our goals in making the game was to connect with others suffering from mental illness and help them realize that they’re not alone. The feeling of mental illness is often one of isolation and fear. We wanted to create a game to resonate with people who also suffer and give them an outlet for self-expression as well.
Neverending Nightmares is an extremely personal and uncompromising game. It definitely isn’t the type of game that you’d see a big company making, but even when I first started working on it, the people at PlayStation rallied behind the idea and worked to bring it to PS4 and PS Vita.
Neverending Nightmares hits PlayStation platforms on May 3 for $14.99.
