A game by Bentosmile (ported to Flash by Raitendo)

Bentosmile's comments:

Air Pressure is a visual novel game that I've been working on on-and-off for a while. It has only three different endings, but a lot of branches!

I hope you enjoy it. It is quite a serious game, I guess. :)

Huh...

I believe Napaz is right about his predictions. The girl will fade and blur at times, this shows the answer: SHE ISN'T REAL. Show by the way he talk about her and the way she talks about him. They both say "relyed on" you don't usually talk about someone like that do you? But you do talk about a drug like that. The confusing part make sense too when you find the true ending of the character leaving her forever. A real eye opener, The arteries thing and the getting closer in the first ending has made sense: if the girl isn't real he can't have sex with her but him can inject a deadly amount of the drug into a major artery and then make himself with more drug then ever.

The 2nd story is that they just keep going the same way, this is the live with the drug forever scene that means that he will keep going with his normal dose that make him hallucinate of a girl. In the go outside part, he talks of being normal, couples and friends are normal, so why isn't he normal. Drug users aren't normal and therefore it means that the girl is a drug.

A different kind of game

Nice game but, was I the only one who instantly believed Leigh was a drug when I read "she stayed on my left arm ever since"?

Not that good...

I couldn't connect with the character we were to play. He talked like he was a depressed loser. I think it would have been better if the game let you determine whether or not you were depressed about your relationship instead of just reacting to a depressing relationship.

Also, some of the responses were a bit vague and prompted responses from her that I felt should have been different - especially during the time she went sketchy.

Nice game

Very nice game, the flickering of her image confused me, as I wasn't sure if that was part of the story, but I think she represents his self doubt, which is why he's so happy when she's gone, and why he tries to commit suicide by cutting himself when he embraces her.
Thought-provoking

This is quite unnerring...

I'm going to give this a ten just because you managed to creep me out. I believe i understand the reason and metaphor behind the 'girl' too.
It is, in my opinion, a metaphor for heroin
Which freaks me out, because me and my girl are like that, if you choose all the nice things to say.
Kinda means that love is like a drug, addictive and mysterious.
But yeah...Awesome flash, made me really want to play the old pokemon games again. =]
