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. :)

Deep

I have seen all three endings, others say the girl represents a drug addiction/something that messed him up or he was cutting his wrists. Well, all I can say is that it is deep and probably does represent some problem and the girl represents something. That the boy need to get independent of. 10/10, amazing song, amazing story, well written and such. 5/5! I wish I knew for sure what this meant.

My interpretation

For the review, this game is one of those art games that show a simple dilemma at first, but one's perspective on the story changes when you find out what it could represent. It was short but very good despite that.

*SPOILERS*

I believe like others that the girl represents heroin. I'm guessing "wrapped herself around my arm" implies that since heroin is injected in the arm, and I'm not sure if the marks ever go away or not. Like any addiction, she constantly nags him, like a heroin addiction would nag someone else. If the person gave in, they would be sent to the hospital due to being "too close" or overdosing. If the player tries to break away, she persistently derides him, and calls him useless. This shows a person's experience from quitting once they're addicted, as they heavily rely on it. Her fading away shows that the player is steadily overcoming the addiction.

Hidden meanings.

This is not a game actually talking about having a girlfriend, it symbolizes his addiction, you can see this from the very beginning, "From the very second we met, she wrapped herself around my left arm, and has stuck there ever since." It isn't apparent until you finally get the Hospital ending, but once you do you start to realize that the girl doesn't exist, go back through and think of everything said in a different light, as an addiction to a physical substance.

I think this game does an extremely good job of explaining a difficult topic in a way that people can relate to instead of just plain and simply talking about it. It may mean more to people who have had this type of problem and it may be more apparent to them also. This is a beautiful creation and it deserves a 10/10, please read this and think about what I've typed here before you give it anything lower, it really does not deserve that.
