UPDATE - V1.1:
Thanks for all the plays and feedback. I'm very happy with the reception this game has gotten. This game seems to have resonated with a lot of you, and that's very cool.

I realize that many of you are getting frustrated with the game, but that's the point. Many people who are disabled in real life do get frustrated. Life isn't always fair, and I wanted to try and portray that in this little game.

Changes:

- Added a way to restart with a different disability from the first room
- Made it so you respawn on the side of the room you came from
- Got rid of unintended annoyances while playing Spastic
- Added an indication right before a tic when playing Spastic
- Made lava bubble hitbox a little smaller
- Shameless self promotion links when clicking "A Game By Cory Martin"
- Fixed a typo
- Other minor tweaks
- Secret

BACKGROUND INFO:

i had a couple more disabilities planned and their systems in place (scared of socialization, armless) but I couldn't work them in the actual levels in time.

On the second day of Ludum Dare, I wasn't really happy at all with how the game was turning out; it was devoid of character and the level design was haphazard. I decided to take another day and try and fix it up the best I could and submit it in time for the 72 hour jam instead. After not sleeping and spending the whole day introducing new mechanics, designing levels, adding in all the dialog and thematic elements and other miscellaneous things, I think I turned it into a decent game.

The game is potentially very unfair, especially with certain disabilities, but I think that fits the message of the game well.

this game made ​​me react, people hard his life is and complains that he does not realize ... some people have worse lives and the disabled such as ... I had to become a sexual "object" to help him but had hoods that made him start again or "end their suffering" when he had no problem doing anything to reach your goal

people born with a normal body and state ... and complains that it's hard when your life turns around to see the other people around ... this game ... I made ​​myself sad but not for people with DISABILITIES, if not normal people when they do not feel like "trash or unusable" and people feel and is DISABLED ...

This game genuinely made me cry. I could only finish the game as crippled, if you can call it finishing the game. I felt like I was the character, and each insult by the people "helping" me actually hurt. The part that really set me off was when your character has traveled so far for freedom, just to have no way of climbing a ledge that anyone could climb, and had no choice but to jump down into an awful place. this is an amazing game and I can't describe the emotions it made me feel. 5 Stars.

Most of you guys are complaining the game is too hard.
That is the point. Living with certain disabilities can be rough, and not a walk in the park.
Also, for the one who complained about getting stuck on a platform with no one to transport you, you probably talked to the wrong guy who purposely put you there. It's all about trial and error.
To the person who complained about the Spastic disability, of course it's going to be a game of Russian Roulette, people who have that type of disability are going to have attacks that will cause them to hurt themselves, the creator even made that disability a bit easier to cope with by adding in a cue for when the character is about to move by himself.
Overall, this game is well made, at least to me and I hope to see more like this.
You have to look deeper into the point of this game and not complain about the difficulty.
