this game reminds me of a song that I hear at least one time every night. "back, in the 90's I was in a very famous tv show" what I mean is, this is like if bojack horseman was a newgrounds game. and in a way, I hate for the same reason I love it. its human. and I mean, truly, human. and being human means being sad. thank you for this.
Oh boy... I'm a queer neurodivergent homeless dude. This game is practically my life. I've definitely struggled with suicidal feelings a lot. But playing this game, I felt like, "Oh! I actually know all the answers". Because I've been through everything already. I've talked myself down, others have talked me down, and occasionally I meet people I can help too...
Being a lifeline isn't hard either. Most of it is just reminding people who have forgotten that there is always a way forward. They just need help figuring out what it is. Often they already know. They just need to speak about the topic to remember. This game perfectly encapsulated that.
The second one made me cry. Even though I started it thinking, "Oh, I'm sure his problem isn't relatable at all." You did a great job. I like things like this, that desensitize people to the fear of interacting with a suicidal person. They don't need an angel, a miracle, a genius, a doctor, or even often a therapist... They just need simple, open human contact. Suicide is only a symptom of stress. When the stress fades, the mind clears, and better things become possible.
this game makes you think, about many things including, how important life really is, how to pull yourself back together when everything is looking bad, how YOU can help those in need with depression and anxiety, where the hell you are, and thats why i love this game, it has my favourite things about games and also i have friends in need of help that make me feel like i could do a difference in there lives, play this game, feel like we could all help and make a difference, welp thats just my opinion
This was a wonderful experience. As incredibly simple as it was, it accomplished it's goal- It made me FEEL stuff. Helping these people despite the forces fighting against it made me feel powerful and motivated! The music choice only added to that sense of hope.
Short and sweet.
