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. :)

Considering drugs have brushed my personal life, I should know that drugs and self-mutilation are like parasites that should be cut out, no matter how painful the process.

But.

If you portrayed the addiction as a monster or a maze, it would've had less effect on the player, and make it easier to beat. But you portrayed it as a loved one, making the challenge not for skill, but for emotion and conviction.

THIS is how addicts see it, they don't see it as a danger to destroy, to overcome, they see it as someone close to them, someone who helps them when nobody else will.

Leigh seems to know just the right thing to say and do to unnerve you and make you more compliant, employing everything to keep you with her, at that point I could only tell the difference between the good and bad endings because everyone had put it in their reviews.

Even though I knew I had to get rid of her, I had nearly cried in the "good" ending.

Five stars isn't enough.

This is very nice. Very deep and beautiful. I liked the fact that the player had no known name. So there are three endings. The girl is some kind of addiction. I believe it might be drugging, drinking, or cutting. Either way, the played can take a route towards three different endings.
SPOILERS
One ending is where he finally admits and agrees to never leave her again. He/she is later in the hospital discussing a wound with a nurse.
Another ending is where he admits that he had taken the relationship farther and deeper.
Final one is where he actually makes her leave. I guess he ditches his addiction.

Overall, really really loved this. A good game to come back to.

At first i thought "Oh, must be another generic Sim-date" but DAMN was i wrong!
It kind of make me wish that the decisions we make in life would show up in front of us so we could make a clear one and not on impulse.
