Neversong offers a mix of action, exploration and puzzles that everyone will like, together with a compelling story and a moving ending you will remember for a long time. A pleasure for both eyes and ears that will also thrill you, despite the controls being a bit inaccurate.

It’s a new example of what can come from Kickstarting gaming projects, and will likely remain a bright-spot in gaming’s memory for the foreseeable future.
It has just enough bells and whistles to suck you into its world, but not enough to compel your immersion.
Neversong took me about three hours to complete, but its message resonated with me for far longer.
Neversong is a beautiful and enjoyable title that tells you the story of a boy named Peet who is on a search to find his lost friend. Excellent art direction along with a skillful voice acting and a suitable story have made for an amazing game. Furthermore, other aspects like metroidvania elements and puzzles have made the game even more entertaining. Of course, these entertaining features makes it a shame that the game’s short playtime is so short. Finally, while the game is good, it is held back by its lackluster combat

Neversong did nothing but impress as I made my way through its weird and wonderful world.
I was pleasantly surprised by Neversong. It’s another Kickstarter success story where the developer has made full use of their abilities and talent to create a wonderfully creepy but memorable adventure. The music, the graphics, the gameplay its all just so well polished despite the adventure being short. The game is due to release on Nintendo Switch in the future (as well as other consoles). This adventure moved me and did horror in just the right way. But don’t don’t let that put you off. Neversong is a game not to be missed.
The game perfectly balances its emotional undertones with excellent pacing, a vastly interesting world, and clever puzzle design.
Less-than-decent gameplay nearly spoils a quality narrative.
For me, the story and theming of Neversong embody a two-thousand-year-old statement of wisdom for us all: You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
