"Everything can be taken away from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedom — to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way." -Viktor Frankl

Tragedy strikes, or maybe it creeps up on you. Someone or something important is gone — it left suddenly, or gradually. Every day feels the same. Those around you try to help, but they are not very good at it, are they? You are trapped in a rut.

You feel that one day, maybe soon, that things might be different — better, even. You don't know how or when it will happen; you don't have the perspective or energy to figure it out.

In the meantime, you need to make it through the day — you need to survive.

How do you do it?

You just cope.

lost a friend to suicide recently and this felt very close to what my brain looks like right now. my only criticism would be that it needs more options and paths, at the moment it's a little too simple to accurately show what it feels like to grieve quietly.

I gave it a three and a half cause I can tell it would be a good game if it worked for me, but for some reason it gets stuck on certain things like "going out for drinks" or "how have you been?" I'm on Chrome btw. Thanks for taking the time to make a game though! I liked the parts that actually did work.

Omg, I was in tears at the end! Just being lost not knowing where to go through a cloudy haze. We've all been there. I really loved it

wow. This deserves the 5 out of 5 I gave it.
It makes everything seem so real. Its like your there, and thats you going through your problems. Your depression, your anxiety, every problem you have and just living it and coping. It really makes you think. It makes you feel the pain that you are going through right now, and also the pain the character is feeling. Telling yourself that your okay. Telling them what they want to hear. Pretending that your not falling apart. Lying to yourself. Everything.
In one experience.
Wow.
Thank you <3

This game definitely makes you think. Fantastic job
