Part of my thesis this is a "not game" as they are referred which uses the guise of a video game to tell a story. No objectives. No sound, play as Nadia as she confesses her daily discomfort. But then she meets Meira.

No Genre for this type of game so the genre selected is really no appropriate! Apologies in advance.

Beginning steps to making a much longer more interactive "not game"

TFowler responds:

Thank you very much

I can't believe i'm saying/typing this but... I can relate. Not necessarily the same exact thoughts... but I am also going through a depression from which only one person seems to be capable of dragging me out of... Because of this game/art I just remembered that I never really thanked them. I'm going to go and do that tomorrow. For now, thank YOU for showing this to me.

TFowler responds:

I hope you find your happiness. I'm with you - and I'm glad you enjoyed the "game" :)

That is just... amazing.

TFowler responds:

Thank you very much.

seems so depressing.. like me

TFowler responds:

I'm sure you're so wrong. <3

This is so good! I can't wait to not-play the whole thing. I like how the text feels like completely natural thoughts (idk if it's common to hold inner monologues all the time, but i sure as heckaroo do) and come together in a lovely poetic way. I've been looking for games, and no-games, about depression and sadness, and this is one of the most relatable ones. Heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once. Keep up the good work!

TFowler responds:

Thank you very much for your very lovely response. I will try to keep up the good work, thanks for playing!
