Beautiful game. Just like everyone else iI loved seeing what i wrote actually be integrated. It's pretty much what im going through in my life right now and I could actually see a bit of myself in the game.
Very well done and I loved your writing. Nothing too cheesy or fancy but still deep enough to make you really feel it

wont open :( when I open the html its just a blank white page

I got the same blank page, im just writing this down in case the author finds a solution to this, it seems like a really amazing game.

As someone with severely painful Crohn's Disease, Generalized Anxiety Disorder with panic attacks, ADHD, and suicidal ideation, who has almost successfully killed myself when my Crohn's was at its worst and I was almost out of opioids to help with the pain, this game was something I could very easily relate to. My partner of 15 years has PTSD because of this.

My best friend killed himself by hanging himself in his garage back in November 2017. He told me he was going to do it about five minutes before he did it, although we had both talked about killing ourselves for about a year beforehand.

Nothing about this game shocked me. This is pretty much my reality. I deal with it day-by-day and try to struggle through. One day I am sure I will probably end up killing myself, but that day is not today.

I wrote an article about this game! Truly fantastic :)

An amazing look into life with depression. I personally do not have depression, but this gave me a new perspective and a better idea of what my friends and family feel. Thank you, seriously.

Great story telling.feel like i connected to it on a deep level.

A+, would feel targeted but also less lonely again

As someone who has had these sort of thoughts, it has really opened my eyes. I managed to survive though, just like I am now...

I've played the same way I'm managing my real life depression... I didn't last long.

This game felt quite accurate, amazing storyelling!

Loved this game played through it 3 times. I hope you make more games like this!!

I... I'm in near tears.

I just finished playing for the first time. I... I didn't expect to be shown that at the end. I don't want to leave spoilers for those that want to play, although it's pretty short, but... I... said yes to everything, and to be shown that...

Wow.

Kudos.

This game is very interesting and fantastic in it's presentation.  It's super unique and I very much enjoyed the story.  A little unfortunate that from my understanding the ending is unchanging, but overall a great message over the difficulty of anxiety/depression and what it feels like to have an anxiety attack.  You did a fantastic job with this!
