Nevermind’s Past

Nevermind started as a 2012 MFA thesis project at USC’s Interactive Media Program, led by industry veteran Erin Reynolds—who returned to academia to pursue new ways to create “positive” games for traditional gaming audiences. After an academic year, Erin and the Nevermind student development team were able to create one fully-functional level—a proof of concept that demonstrated Nevermind’s unique vision and the feasibility of the core technology.

Nevermind has since been featured in numerous festivals and nominated for several awards for innovation and technical achievement, including at IndieCadeGames for ChangeSIGGRAPHUnity Unite Awards, and the Serious Games Showcase and Challenge.
