Re: The game is out! Please write positive reviews

Obviously there are a lot of people that just consider playtime per dollar when determining the value of a game, which is a bit of a bummer. Well, as a player who loves games like the STALKER series, Fallout 3 or NV and Skyrim... I certainly fall into that group. I like exploration and doing my own...

Re: So this game is really about incest right?

For example, the mutated baby makes sense in context of the Final Descent ending, but what relevance does it have with the ending where Thomas and Gabby are still children? Perhaps exactly that: Thomas is the bigger brother. He would've seen Gabby as a baby in his own early childhood. Imagine his m...

Re: Brainstorming

Yikes, I've thrown around ideas here and there over the course of the last year, but actually collecting them into one cohesive post is difficult.

Re: So this game is really about incest right?

Yes, but the stabbing for instance does not have to be about sex nor does it have to be about an actual stabbing, it could just mean a feeling of being responsible for harm, regardless of the details of what actually happened. That's why the stabbing works both for the bit about the father feeling r...

Re: Blood color

Yeah, darker, more wine-coloured blood might be a good idea. Or old blood, that is a rusted brownish colour. Too late now, but maybe for the next one? :-) I can't even remember how often I've complained about games like Fallout 3 or Skyrim having these ancient skeletons lying around in pools of shin...

Re: So this game is really about incest right?

I don't reconcile them. I interpret them at face value and individually. One is about his daughter dying and his wife leaving and Thomas, rightly or wrongly, feeling responsible for his daughter's death (that's why he sees himself stabbing her). Also fits with the abortion-/miscarriage-imagery as Ga...

Re: So this game is really about incest right?

If we go with your scenario of 2 AA and 2 Aa grandparents, the odds of a grandchild being blonde is quite dire: 6.25%. (0.5 * 0.5 * 0.25). I really don't think that a chance of higher than one in twenty can be considered "quite dire". Plus, that way you are ignoring the other setups we mentioned (y...

Re: Art Style for Neverending Nightmares 2?

Wow. I swear I didn't see your thread before posting The Scream picture in the other forum as a recommended art style. I guess we have a few Munch fans around here. :D

Re: The game is out! Please write positive reviews

I wrote a recommendation on Steam for it, but did feel the need to point out the relatively short game length and lack of replayability. I did, however, compare it to a visit to the cinema or whatever where people spend about that much money on a 2 hour ride that is not replayable, either (and at th...
