Re: Neverending Nightmares 2.0 on Steam! (and OUYA)

Re: Neverending Nightmares 2.0 on Steam! (and OUYA)

I've recently re-played NN, unaware of the updates, and was rather unpleasantly surprised by the changes in the art - namely, the excessive darkness in the Insanity and in the Destroyed Dreams ending, that made many details completely obscure in the original sense of the word. Please, keep the origi...

"Eidolon" - a short, dreamlike, choose-your-adventure game

"Eidolon" is an atmospheric, dreamlike piece of interactive fiction written in the "Twine" system, where a young girl wakes up from disturbing dreams to find that something is passing through the night sky. From there the story alternates between horror and a darkly beautiful fai...

Computer geek's nightmare (repeating)

I wake up, and turn on the computer. Perhaps, while doing so, I spill some water on tea on the mouse or the machine itself... Whatever the case, instead of a familiar Linux Mint loading screen I get an error message and a Windows loader. Sometimes it spews some strange output. In both cases I realiz...

Real vs. 'catapult' awakening [SPOILERS]

It's almost a cliche - a protagonist wakes up from a nightmare to immediately sit upright in bed, either screaming, sweating or profusely panting. This is how Thomas wakes from his successive nightmares... ... except each of the awakenings is actually a dream. This is in fact avoided in the endings ...

The most UPBEAT ending? [SPOILERS]

The question might seem provocative, given how gloomy NN's storyline is. But I personally think that "Destroyed Dreams" would qualify as one: through his dreams Thomas wants to reunite with Gabrielle, and then he wakes up and there she is - though obviously concerned about his suicide atte...

Games about dreams

"Neverending Nightmares" is the one of the latests games which are explicitly about dreams - and perhaps the finest so far - but not the only one to touch upon this subject. Several other games tried to depict the world of dreams with varying success; there are the few I'm aware of. If you...

Two ways of storytelling: concise versus verbose

One of the criticisms levelled against the NE is that 'the storyline is thin'. The criticism comes, I believe, from people who equate storyline with tons of dialogues and exposition. There are, in my opinion, two ways to tell a story. One's treating the reader/viewer/player as an idiot who has to ha...

Re: Favorite Level?

"Together at last", and I love how, true to the dream logic, going down to take the glass of milk is actually easier than getting back to bed... And my second favorite - "The Childish Things", especially because of how the scenes where the light in the corridor goes out and somet...
