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. :)

Ok, IT'S A SPOILER. DON'T READ IT :)

I understand now. The guy feels dependant on his girlfriend. His world would collapse if she would leave. but if he has enough courage, he can make the right decision and not be dependant on her. This dependency is so strong, that this guy even feels physical uncomfortability from time to time. A marvellous work, a touching story. Every couple sooner or later goes through this. What is funny is this: the guy always is happy about his choice, even if it is a good one or not :D

Another deep hidden message

It's amazing how many people don't understand your work. I won't spoil anything, but I've narrowed it down to the girl being a couple different things, just haven't quite pinpointed which one yet.

this one's not exactly my work though, I just ported it to flash.

The meaning behind the endings/game

First off, I am going to explain whats going on in the third paragraph. If you're a newgroundser and want to avoid the ***HUGE SPOILER*** then don't read that last paragraph. Or just jump right to it if you dont get what the story is about. Extremely extremely well done and interestng way to approach this all. I was so confused til i got my first ending (the hospital one) scratched my head for a minute and then figured it out. Being mean to her just further illucidated what was going on and that my original idea was right.

love the graphics. love the minimalist music because it is both very pretty to listen to and sort of sets the vibe correctly for what this guy is going through. all in all extremely pleasurable point n click game.

Now what is the story about? The girl is a physical embodiment of an IV drug addiction. Thus why she is quite literally affixed to his left arm and how the nurse comments hes lucky he missed his nerves and arteries. Try being mean to her and her comments definitely make this quite clear.

well

It was a pretty cool analogy for what I'm sure a lot of people go through. Although in my experience with addictions, this isn't really how it plays out in my head. Either way though, you took a classic plot device and turned it into something pretty fresh and added some nice aesthetics as well. Good job!

Genious

I've watched all the endings, and I finally realised who is this girl, and how does getting closer to her relate to waking up in a hospital.

That certain thing he doesn't want the others to find out.. amazing..
