This was very well done. Thanks for this. I made a similar game (I'm grateful it's linked in the comment below this one) but you've captured depression much better here.
Wow. This is a very powerful game. The changing text really helps show what it's like to be depressed or anxious. Kinda reminds me of another game in the jam: https://itch.io/jam/twiny/rate/22558.
I was really happy when they smiled at me, and when my character saw beauty in it. Thank you for making this.
(I'm also in this Twiny Jam, by the way. My game is HCF.)
i can definitely relate to the game. The 'you need to do this' sections are exactly the kind of tiring self-enforcement that I do daily. And half the time my nerves defeat. Very good simulation of that feeling, and done with admirable terseness
Lovely little game, very clever use of the text in such a short space but really made an impact. Thanks for sharing it.
As someone who suffers from bipolar disorder and social anxiety, I could relate to this a lot.The use of alternating text for the actions that caused anxiety was a clever way of showing the thoughts an anxious, depressed person typically thinks in those situations.
