This week’s Apple Arcade release, Neversong, has just now snuck its way onto the App Store. Formerly known as Once Upon a Coma, it sees you playing as a young fella named Peet. After waking up from a coma, he finds that his girlfriend has gone missing.
Troublingly, the adults around him are all behaving rather strangely, and far off in the distance, he can hear screams coming from the heart of the Neverwood. Could it be that his girlfriend is in danger? What on earth is going on? I’m sure all will eventually be revealed.
It’s said to be a dreamlike fable packed with surreal visuals and encounters. Early on, Peet heads out on a grand adventure from the Red Wind Field to the haunted halls of the Blackfork Asylum and beyond, all in the hopes of uncovering the truth and breaking free of his never-ending nightmare.
Unfortunately for lovely Peet, he won’t be alone in the game’s six moody levels, with various monsters and the zombie-like grownups skulking his picturesque surroundings. Thankfully, he has his trusty baseball bat at hand, childhood friends at his side, and handy pet bird to help him out and keep him company.
It looks super stylish and interesting, all told, and I know that it’s been in development for a fair while now. If you’ve been waiting to give it a go, you’ll find Neversong available for download now over on the App Store. That said, you’ll of course need an active Apple Arcade subscription to play.
