For those of you fortunate enough to not know, NeverDead is an action game built around the titular conceit that your character is immortal. As you hack and slash your way through hordes of undead creatures, you'll inevitably lose an arm, leg, or even your head. At this point, you're then tasked with roaming the chaotic battlefield in search for the missing appendages. Maintaining your limbs is a Sisyphean task, as even the slightest bit of damage ends up removing a handful of bodyparts. NeverDead isn't the first game to employ an immortality mechanic -- the Wario Land series has been handling this concept with creative grace for the past 20 years, and Planescape: Torment set the standard for "immortal protagonist" back in 1999. But for every way that Nintendo succeeds, NeverDead seems to fail.
