By the skin of its nose, Neverending Nightmare, Matt Gilgenbach's psychological horror game inspired by his battle with mental illness, has been fully funded. As of Friday, the game was around $20,000 below its $99,000 funding goal on Kickstarter. Neverending Nightmare's Kickstarter campaign ended over the weekend. By the time it ended it had managed to raise $106,722 from 3,608 backers.
The game will launch in August of 2014 for Linux, Mac, Windows and Ouya.
On September 29, Gilgenbach wrote an update to the Neverending Nightmare Kickstarter page, thanking the community for making his dream of creating a nightmare a reality:
"Thank you everyone so much!," Gilgenbach wrote. "I am super exhausted because I barely slept last night, but all I can say right now is thank you. I will be sure to have a more coherent update tomorrow."
"Thank you so so so so so so much from the bottom of my heart! You guys are the best, and I couldn't have done it with you!"
