A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Android
This is pretty different. I heard about the tragic suicide of Aaron Swartz last spring and made this game in ten hours. It loops around a lot; there’s some debate over what the ending of the game is, I guess, but my point is that there’s not an ending.
When I was twelve, I tried to kill myself. I’ve dealt with depression my whole life, but that was the last time I succumbed to suicidal ideation. It’s been nineteen years. This game discusses a lot of things pretty frankly— completed suicide attempts of friends, being rushed to the ER, using Christianity to prop up my self-discipline for a while, my fears for my children.
You can argue whether or not this is a GAME, I guess, but it’s definitely me.
