about the game

Nevermind is developed to help players become more mindful of their feelings of stress and anxiety levels and help them practice managing those feelings of fear and stress

In Nevermind, you are a Neuroprober – a unique physician who, through the use of cutting-edge technology, is able to venture into the minds of psychological trauma patients for whom traditional treatment methods have proven ineffective.

As such, each “level” in Nevermind takes place within the surreal subconscious of one of these victims. Your goal is to explore the often dark and twisted world within, solving abstract puzzles as you recover fragments of memories (represented by photographs) surrounding the traumatic event.

Traumatic experiences, especially those left untreated, take their toll in countless ways, often triggering other serious problems as the victim’s subconscious desperately tries to cope. As a result, the patient’s mind doesn’t take kindly to those who attempt to peel back these layers, often prompting it to lash out in terrifying, unexpected ways.

Playgrounds

One of [Flying Mollusk's] intentions in creating Nevermind is to bring awareness to the prevalence and breadth of psychological trauma and PTSD.

The game currently responds to emotion-based biofeedback with a standard webcam via Affectiva’s Affdex technology and/or physiological-based biofeedback via a supported heart rate sensor.

  • "And it works. Not only was the game obviously tuned to my emotional state, by the end of the journey I found myself pausing and taking a deep breath to slow my heart rate and more calmly tackle the nightmares that confronted me."
