Developed and published by Infinitap Games, this indie game which was released back in September 2014 takes you to places where it is kind of taboo. In Neverending Nightmares, you take on the role of Thomas who awakens from a terrible nightmare only to find that he is still dreaming. As he descends deeper through the layers of hellish dreamscapes, he must hide from horrifying apparitions and outrun his inner demons. He must discover which of the horrors he encounters are a manifestation of his own psychological state and figure out what reality will be when he finally wakes up.

You get to experience the terrifying nightmare worlds inspired by real life struggles to those who have OCD and depression. The black and white artwork creates a distinctive moody and dark atmosphere. With a branching narrative, it features three completely different endings which depends on the choices that you make. A dynamic lighting system gives the ever present darkness a character of its own. Renowned composer Skyler McGlothlin is at the helm as he delivers a haunting and oppressive dark ambient score.

According to Wikipedia, Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder characterized by intrusive thoughts that produce uneasiness, apprehension, fear or worry (obsessions), repetitive behaviors aimed at reducing the associated anxiety (compulsions), or a combination of such obsessions and compulsions. Symptoms of the disorder include excessive washing or cleaning, repeated checking, extreme hoarding, preoccupation with sexual, violent or religious thoughts, relationship-related obsessions, aversion to particular numbers and nervous rituals such as opening and closing a door a certain number of times before entering or leaving a room.

Who knows that we might be living with somebody that has the OCD symptom or we ourselves are a victim of this illness. In Neverending Nightmares, that’s where you get to experience a life of a person with OCD as he go about his daily routine. This isn’t your typical horror game. It’s not about startling you with jump scares. It’s about creating a tense and oppressive atmosphere that mirrors my experience with mental illness.

The game itself is not very long to complete. You will likely to finish an entire play through to one ending which typically takes between 1.5 to 2 hours. However, with the 3 different endings with unique content leading up to them, this will add another hour or two to your playtime.

At the end of the game, you will surely feel for Thomas as well as other sufferers of OCD. Having to go through their experience would make you understand what they are going through and at the end of day, if you know somebody with OCD, you will bound to appreciate them a whole lot more.
