  • Survival horror, as a genre, has grown and diversified quite a bit since its introduction by the likes of the Resident Evil series. Whether tilted slightly more towards action or less in the direction of outright scares and leveraging more of a feeling of foreboding and dread, the genre is varied. In the indie space a somewhat popular way to attack the genre has been to go with more of a walking simulator feel, having you navigate a landscape, or sometimes a single house, while discovering dark details and sometimes eluding horrors of some kind. Nerved is definitely in that vibe but cranking the visual quality down to perhaps a decade ago with not just many relatively primitive models but a lot of spaces that simply feel empty and offer very limited opportunities for interaction. There are threats out in the world, and if you’re not cautious they will find you, but in the end they aren’t enough to make the wandering you spend so much time doing feel more interesting or rewarding and the pretty threadbare story with very few beats isn’t enough to be terribly compelling either.
