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. :)

is does not a drug,She is "Self-Mutilation." Notice in Ending 1 when the nurse says "You're lucky you didn't hit any nerves or arteries." In this ending you also become "Closer" with her (deeper cuts). She also has "wrapped herself around my arm and never left" (scars). If you play through the game again with this in mind it all starts to make sense. The game sends a great message about the dangers of self-mutilation, and is also very well put together. The music is also very deep and relaxing. 5/5 for sure.

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.

Why they hell was he in the hospital. Dumbest Question : Did she beat him up?
