2015 Non-VR Nevermind Trailer (Win & Mac)
As a horror game, Nevermind is a bit mediocre. While there's a well-built uneasy atmosphere throughout the main levels, the lack of danger does remove a lot of the potential for being scared. Perhaps this could have been improved somehow with the bio-feedback but it looks like we'll never know on Xbox. An interesting premise mixed in with the aforementioned well-made atmosphere means that the game may well be worth playing for some, but we'd just recommend waiting for a sale considering the game's short length.
Nevermind is a game unlike any I have ever played before and one that is worth experiencing. I would have preferred it to be much scarier than it is, perhaps turning to cult classic Eternal Darkness for inspiration. Once you complete the five missions there isn’t much incentive to collect all the memories, aside from achievements/trophies. The game is also a bit pricey at $19.99 USD, which may turn some off. Even though I didn’t get scared, I never knew what to expect when probing the mind of the next patient. If you are up for trying something new and have some extra cash, Nevermind will definitely get you thinking.
