You know know these fake 8 bit games are really getting old. They're not original and come off as pretentious. Just sayin'

i dont mean to come off as pretentious

Kind of messed up, a huge point though. Manic Depression/ Bipolar do not go away, and the only treatment is medication. The guy in the game did it to his own self, no one should feel sympathy. A trip to a pyscitraist can manage it. It's legit the only known way, chemicals in the brain release and it creates a manic state, when used, they go into a depressive mode. Many project their illness onto the world around them, so they never get help. The messed up thing is, many think it will make them no longer be themselves, they don't know what it's like to feel normal, so they think they're losing something. People with the disorder need to see a doctor, period.

This game, as short and simple as it was, impacted me on a great level. Rarely have I played something that I've almost truly cried over. The minigame where you avoid the smiles, I feel like that represents something. Anybody who is truly so deep and submerged in pain, depression, anxiety, and anything else, they try to avoid things that will supposedly make them happy. But they avoid them because they know that those things won't do anything for them, so what's the point anyway? I feel like that's what the falling smiles represent. And the frown faces that you collect that further your score, they represent something too. In the midst of everything, the only thing that somebody will gather, is more hurt, more depression, more pain. Because that's all they can gather at that point. It only collects and furthers your hurt. This game truly hit me on a level that I rarely ever experience. You realize how so many lives today are... You realize how much pain so many people go through... And rarely do we ever even blink an eye about it. Rarely does it ever cross our minds. And so many people suffer until the suffering becomes too much to bear. It's a deep and cruel lesson to learn. But this game is so built in that. I'm glad this game was created. I'm glad to have played it. Please keep up the amazing work 08jackt. I look forward to more splendid work of yours.
