Thank you so much for making this!
I also struggle with chronic depression, and have always wanted to make a game to communicate how it feels. I think you nailed it.
When you start the game, it feels hopeless, like there's no way you can manage it all, but once you pick up a couple of recovery techniques, you start to feel like there might be hope. Each recovery ability you master even makes it easier to get to the next one. Once you get 4 or 5, you barely even need to struggle!
I honestly had a lump of dread in my gut going into this game, but by the time I finished, I was feeling happy and hopeful. Great work, and congratulations on 3rd in mood!
