A downloadable game for Windows

What Never Was.

A short story-driven first-person focused on exploration and puzzle-solving, developed in Unreal Engine 4.

- Sometime in the late 2000s, Howard James Wright - an old but kind man - perishes. Leaving behind him many adventures, relics he's collected over the years as well as books authored, he is also leaving Sarah, his granddaughter behind.

Having to shoulder the arduous task of clearing out her grandfathers attic, she is soon to find that not everything about her grandfathers attic is what it seems. -

I WAS AMAZEDDDDDDD BY THE VISUALS AND THE SIMPLE YET ASTOUNDING STORY AND PUZZLE ELEMENTS!!!

really enjoyed this Fantastic Game! I’d love to see a full game. Also I think this would be awesome in VR

Thanks for making this. It was a surprisingly emotional experience, and there's so much detail in the attic, and even nonessential items have voiced flavor text. The amount of effort you put into this really shows.

Bonus: I'd love to see hidden Mr. Piggles references in whatever worlds she visits next, like crudely drawn cave art, or a real pig named Mr. Piggles, or an NPC with a name like Mr. Squiggles who snorts when they talk. He's just a cool little guy.

Edit: Ooh, what if the actual Mr. Piggles shows up and Sarah's just like "How did you get here?"

Loved this. It was a great story. I would love to see the adventure Sarah went on in the future or more to this story. This game left me on a cliffhanger of what she went through.  I really look forward to seeing what is next.

I enjoyed this. Begs the question of what may come in the future, or if nothing ever will be continued on the story. This was a nice little story/demo. Would be interested to see it expand further.

Beautiful. I love it. Really hits close to home, I lost both of my parents last year and I know the struggle, the hope and the dreams. Seriously, great work.

A SUPER well done, short (<20 minutes) game that I REALLY hope has a full length follow up! Well done Acke and team!!!

Awesome work with WNW. I hope we'll get to see Sarah's adventures in the future. :)
