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. :)

Subtle, well-layered

Hanged on his left arm in particular for years, circular dependency issues, hospital issues... Neat way to discuss addiction.

What I thought worked pretty well is how manipulative the girl tends to be during certain dialogue options. For the most part, she seems to be just a needy girl, but for others, you can really tell how she preys on the protagonist's fears and dependence.

On the surface, it comes off as a very shallow and simple thing, but the subtlety hits you once you realize it.

my theory....

my theory on the story is that the guy started doing drugs when he was a teen, and the girl symbolizes the drug that he's addicted to. The hospital one is probably means that he got closer to her and overdosed and slit himself or something like one of the guys before me said The one where nothing changes meant that he was still on drugs and nothing bad or good happens and the one where the girl leaves him probably means that he quit drugs.

O.o

At first i would have given it a good 8/10. It was kinda boring and always seemed a little awkward. This isn't exactly a genre I like. But its a well written story, the choices feel real, and so does the pressure.

But then i started looking at the reviews, and it slowly dawned on me some of the symbolism within this game. I played it again twice more through to get the other two endings and i was amazed at the depth of the game and the depth of the story. I must give this a 10/10.

This is my Guess

The girl isn't real (obvious) so she is an hallucination , a persistent one at that.If this is true drugs are unlikely , because it isn't like if your on drugs your high all the time. Altough , it could be a psychic delusion that is kick-started by a drug (multiple personalities i.e.) .This would make sense because it would still carry all the drug hints in the game (the hospital , if she leaves he becomes happy again (drugs make you depressed(ALL drugs in the long run)).

Great idea , like the story you put in there. idk if i was right , but the message your trying to get over (if im right) is dont do drugs (except for weed wich is retarded to be illegal (long live holland)) wich is a good message.

remember you can NEVER (completly) rehabilitate from a cocaine or heroine addiction , the damage will always be there , Under the surface maybe but there nonetheless!!
