If you’ve been a Cliqiteer for a while then you know that we’re fans of Nevermind, a psychological horror game that reacts to the player’s fear level using high-tech doo-dads.
I was a bit cool on the game when it hit Kickstarter, but that was until I checked it out at GDC earlier this year. Even though I only played it on a laptop in the chaotic world of GDC, Nevermind really stuck its claws in me. The last time a video game messed with my anxiety so much was during late night sessions of Thief: The Dark Project back in the late 90’s. Needless to say, it’s something I encourage you to experience if you ever have the opportunity.
Conveniently enough, if you’re in Southern California you can give Nevermind a try yourself this weekend. The Halloween themed ScareLA convention hits Pasadena on Saturday and Sunday and Nevermind will be available to play. The best part is that you’ll be able to check out the game with both the stress-sensing bio-sensor and Oculus Rift VR display. Sure a combination that will spell disaster for some unfortunate soul.
While you’re there be sure to check out the ‘Interactive Scares: Total Immersion” panel on Sunday. Nevermind’s creative director Erin Reynolds will be on-hand discussing the finer points of getting people to involuntarily pee their pants.
If you’re not the outdoorsy type you can check out Nevermind on Steam where it’s available on Early Access for $24.99.
