Description: Nevermind is a biofeedback-enhanced psychological thriller that takes you into the dark and surreal world within the subconscious minds of psychological trauma victims.

As you explore twisted labyrinths and solve the puzzles of the mind, an (optional) biofeedback sensor will monitor your feelings of fear and anxiety with each passing moment. If you let your fears get the best of you, the game becomes harder. If you’re able to calm yourself in the face of terror, the game will be more forgiving.

Nevermind’s goal is to create an unforgettable gameplay experience that can help teach you to be more aware of your unique internal responses to stressful situations. If you can learn to control your feelings of stress and anxiety within the disturbing realm of Nevermind, just imagine what you can do when it comes to those inevitable stressful moments in the real world…

Review: Nevermind is a biofeedback-enhanced psychological thriller / adventure that puts you in the role of a doctor who has just signed up to become a Neuroprober. A Neuroprober is someone that will ‘Enter’ a patient’s mind and help undercover some deeply buried memories that are causing the patient to suffer PTSD. Psychological story put aside you get to explore dream-like lands and dark memories all in the name of trying to help the patient recover.

This is not a game you can rush around as you are limited to one speed only, but this means you take the time to look around and really feel those scary moments. While exploring you will come across several puzzles that need to be solved, but they are nothing that most people won’t be able to handle. Other than that, it is a matter of following the path and finding the clues that will lead to understanding why the patient is suffering from PTSD.

Nevermind is a crazy and often scary adventure that will get your heart racing and your own mind (let alone the patients) working overtime. When this game looks good it looks very good with pretty scenes and wonderful sounds, but when it gets dark and scary it really does look and sound very creepy indeed and will have you fully immersed in the patient’s nightmare. I would like to see more patients to help, but for now, the ones you can help are well worth experiencing.
