A game by Bentosmile (ported to Flash by Raitendo)
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. :)
I really liked all the alternate endings. =) I'm gonna play it over and over lol
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
I am honestly so in love with this game, I clicked on it at first thinking this would be about a boy and a girl falling in love in a plane or something sort of dumb like that. However, what I found was a game/interactive story that has so much meaning behind it.
I have a (pretty for sure) hypothesis on who, or what Leigh is. I think that she is the manifestation, or WOMAnifestation (sorry about that, I had to) of cutting and/or self-harm. Some hints right off the bat are: Since I was a teenager, most self-harm cases begin in a person's teenage years. Attached to my left arm, most commonly, people cut on their arms, and since most people are also right handed, it's kind of common sense to think that it would be on his left arm.
He also mentions relying on "her" through the duration of the game, and depending on the outcome, he either gets over "her" and faces life, nervous like anyone else. He could also stay with "her" and in the end, wake up in a hospital, thinking about how secure "she" makes him feel.
I believe Leigh isn't a real person because toward the end, when your thoughts about her waver, she has pixelation mixups or whatever it's called, and I don't think it's a glitch since it happens with every path (I've taken so far.) Another thing, if she were a person, what could she have done to get you in the hospital? I don't think she would have taken your arm and sliced it (ever so nicely as not to hit nerves or arteries) with your consent, I mean... That's just kinda weird.
Well, to sum up this long review, I absolutely love the symbolism that this game shows and just the different paths you can take are even expanse. I could easily recommend this game to just about everyone I know.
I do agree with Missalij. Oh, yeah, I also think in the hospital he might've stabbed her.
The first playthrough I was just looking at it globally seeing her as his girlriend but the 'bad' ending in the hospital made me think and I replayed it.
Then I noticed the intro with the 'wrapping around my left arm' part, and then with the dialogue throughout the game made me understand the real thought behind this game.
People it's not about relationships, car accidents or suicidal stuff, it's about a heroine addict.
Keep it up Bentosmile!
