Thank you so much Becky! I’m thrilled to see enjoyed the game so much, and it was great hearing about it from the perspective of someone who’d never played before, too.

I agree with everything in this review, after the disappointment that was Moebius I was really pleased to see Phoenix online Studio managed to release a game that remains faithful to the original and enjoyable to play, even though there are some bugs that remain

Very well written review Becky and it pretty much sums up my view aswel. It’s also good to note that PO studios actually did some post-release updates, correcting some of the missing shading, weird animations and the option of a schattenjager library with all the behind the scenes stuff at the end of the game. That coupled with the extra content offered during the 10 days prior to release is an example of a developer that went just the extra mile to please both long time fans and newcomers alike. A job well done and also in my book an 8.5 - 9 out of 10 game!

For newcomers it’s a 4 stars adventure nodoubt,but for old players without the aura which established at a higher level at the original.

They’ve taken an excellent series and improved it even more.

I personally didn’t have a problem with the loading times although there is a lot of travelling between locations that makes it seem worse than it really is.

5 out of 5

One of those rare situations where I have to agree with everyone here.

Incredible graphics, immersive story but a few directions at the beginning and sprinkled throughout the game would have helped a lot.

About a 4.5-5 hour game, expect to be confused but well recommended - 4/5 as well.

It’s strange there is no version of Neverending-Nightmares sold specifically for tablets PCs (i.e. for the iPad or Google Play store), because it is straightforward 2d horror walk ‘em up. It is also only approx 90mins for a non-rushed 1st playthrough, 5hours if you are a perfectionist. As a PC horror game it is far too short&simple; despite that Neverending-Nightmares is a lovingly crafted horror experience.

FWIW If you like Year-Walk you will love Neverending-Nightmares.

Ah, that makes sense, thanks for your answer!

I would really be interested in knowing more about the creation of these type of games, they’re all so similar, often with assets reused from one game to another.

Won’t stop me from enjoying playing them once a while haha

@Miranna

You’re right, although they’re not technically translated, many are made in Eastern European and South American countries by people for whom English isn’t a first language. Dialogue is very low on the list of priorities.

The games are designed around scenes, a map, and puzzles - rather than around a story, characters, or scenario. The story is literally just there to plug the gaps and tie together the artwork.

I don’t understand why so many of these casual adventure game (hidden objects or not) have such nonsensical stories?

Is it bad translation? Or maybe they don’t care and just focus on the graphics? It’s weird

Yes, finally! After playing the first episode, I was eagerly waiting for the next chapter. Now it is here, looking (and sounding?) even better, but obviously not missing the pioneer-like charm of the beginning. Can´t wait to download the update, the price is very reasonable for having a good time with such a game. Thanks to the developers for keeping up the nice work. This is an indie game I can really appreciate.

I asked about that, and the developers said that “at this stage it is Xbox only”, but then, like all developers do for every game, added in “but things could change.”

@Marquillin, I think there is a very good chance they will port to pc later, a large number of Xbox 360 exclusives were and the Xbox One has already had Ryse ported to PC. I think the main factor that decides if they will be ported or not is whether it was made by Microsoft of a third party.

Aw no - please don’t just be on the X-box.  This looks amazing - like there’s hints of LOOM in here too - but I’ve never owned a console. 

One day maybe - they’ll either port it to PC or emulators will be able to run the X-box one.
