ABOUT THE GAME
Sheltered - GGJ 2019 Submission
https://globalgamejam.org/2019/games/sheltered

this year's global game jam theme is "what home means to you". while a lot of people made games relating to family values, nostalgia, and homelands, we made something a little bit more personal.

the comforts of our home often make us feel safe and secure, but it may also become a crutch that prevents us from living

me (@Snackbyte) and alex (@Xelalanana) made a short game (around 5 to 15 minutes long) over 48 hours about what it's like. it's not exactly fun in the traditional sense of the word, but nevertheless we hope that the game is engaging and makes those emotions more understandable

holy sh*t "you don't deserve this" freaking scared me

I like the concept I just feel as thought I wanted to see more from the game but I get that that's kinda the point. However for a game that was made in 48 hours I think it was a interesting game to play.

this hits so close to home. i absolutely love it!! the pixel art is amazing

An interesting take on the GameJam's theme, and personally very relatable to me.

Honestly, I almost closed the page when the counter showed around "day 14", as the actions seemed pointless and repetitive. but i'm glad i decided to stick around though, as even though this wasn't "much", it's something that i could relate to.

it's a nice simple "game" that gave an insight to how people with depression or anything of that sort feels daily (at least to me), with the option of distracting ourselves on social media, gaming, as well as staying in bed the whole day, doing nothing at all (which is basically the cycle that i myself went through last time). i really liked this!

p.s. the kid looks like frisk from undertale, it's nice!
