Now available on Steam by indie developer Flying Mollosk is biofeedback horror title Nevermind for Windows and Mac The videogame will eventually support the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) as the developer confirmed on a blog post earlier this month.
Currently Nevermind is on offer at a discounted rate until 6th October. The title is currently priced £13.49 GBP for the standard download or £17.09 GBP for the soundtrack edition of the title. These prices equate to a 10% discount off the normal prices of £14.99 and £18.99 respectively.
Nevermind takes players into the dark and surreal world within the subconscious minds of psychological trauma victims. One of its main features is the use of a biofeedback sensor. The sensor is only optional and isn’t needed to play the videogame, but if players do use one it 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.
The Oculus Rift version will be available when the HMD is on general sale, in Q1 2016, although Flying Mollosk hasn’t yet said if the title will be available at launch. The developer has stated: “We’ll be using the extra time to continue the development and optimization of the Rift version of Nevermind to ensure it’s the best experience it can be in virtual reality.”
VRFocus will continue to follow any progress updates to the VR version of Nevermind and report back.
