Niche Spotlight – Neversong


Today’s Spotlight is Neversong, a 2D action-RPG by Atmos Games and Serenity Forge.

Originally Kickstarted back in March 2018 under the title Once Upon a Coma, the game follows Peet, a young boy that has just awaken from a mysterious coma.

Unfortunately, the world he wakes back up to is far different from the one he left. His childhood crush is missing, and the town’s grown-ups have become violent and disturbed.

Team up with your band of fellow childhood misfits to uncover the mysteries surrounding the dark turn your hometown has taken. Fight monsters with your baseball bat, and solve music-based puzzles across six different levels.

You can find the launch trailer below.

Neversong is available on Windows PC, and Linux (both via GOG, and Steam) for $14.99.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

Upon waking from a coma, Peet’s girlfriend is nowhere to be found. Thomas Brush, creator of Pinstripe, invites you to investigate the screams coming from the heart of Blackfork Asylum, the increasingly violent behavior of the grown-ups, and the strange truth about Peet’s past in this hauntingly dreamlike fable. Discover what’s lurking beyond the doorbell in this strange tale that started almost a decade ago.
