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
