Neverending Nightmares is now slated to launch on PC, Mac, Linux and Ouya simultaneously, following changes to Ouya’s Free the Games Fund program. Yesterday Ouya announced that developers contracted to receive matching funds via Free the Games Fund will be able to launch on PC platforms at the same time as Ouya, among other loophole closures.
Neverending Nightmares creator Matt Gilgenbach says he never had a problem with Ouya exclusivity in theory, but it doesn’t make sense in terms of Kickstarter:
“I feel (and always felt) that making backers wait six months to get the game they funded was not cool. I expressed this to Ouya before our campaign launched, and they understood where I was coming from and wanted to address my concerns. While there has been some negative press surrounding the FTGF, in my own experience, Ouya has been amazing to work with. Those of you who know me personally know that I am honest to a fault and am perhaps a little too reluctant to give out praise, so that means a lot.”
Neverending Nightmares needs $99,000 by September 29 to fulfill its Kickstarter campaign; it currently has $46,110. We took a look at it in a video preview before the Kickstarter launched and found its Gorey-inspired, macabre art style to be rather horrifying, along with the game itself.
