Neversong pulls inspiration from many great works to create an equally wholesome and terrifying examination of human Guilt.

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.

Neversong is an amazing adventure through a world that feels uniquely crafted. It stands out in its genre because it takes platforming, thriller, and side-scrolling game elements, mashes them together, and what we get is a well-balanced narrative adventure game.

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 is a psychological platformer about depression and grief trauma. Its story accurately demonstrates the extreme feelings of someone who lost a loved one. The game’s art style and music are in complete harmony with its atmosphere, and it also features well-designed gameplay. There are some technical issues in the game’s physics system, and its difficulty may be very casual for hardcore platformer fans. Nevertheless, I can recommend Neversong to the players who like games analyzing psychological and mental health problems.
