A downloadable game for Windows

We have all crossed paths with depression in our lives, and this development team are no different. We owe it ourselves and each other to be honest.

This is a brief and simple game that tries to communicate how isolating life can be through the eyes of depression. Any kind of illness takes its toll on a family, especially in cases were a condition can last indefinitely. This is a story about two people.

There are some simple puzzles in the game, so don't give up! Also keep your eyes open for an alternate ending: even in melancholy, little choices do add up.
