"...Abide With Me"

Author Comments

Eric hasn't seen his parents in ages. It's due time for a visit.

ABIDE WITH ME is a short story/game/visual novel about Eric and his troubled relationship with his family. It's a story about his inability to communicate, and the disconnect between what he thinks and says.

Playing in full screen and with headphones is recommended.

UPDATES: Thanks to the community, some changes have been made to the original version:
- Text scrolling has been removed and replaced with instant dialogue, to better accommodate players.
- The second chapter has received addition to the intro sequence, as some players thought the game repeated itself.
- Minor fixes, such as text not appearing clearly and certain sound effects not being mastered.

Thanks for everyone's feedback and kind words!

Excellent game. In the beginning I was very sympathetic to the parent, projecting my own positive relations onto Eric. The second time through the different options made realize that Eric has a very different relationship with his parents. I found myself getting more hostile at the end. This made me evaluate how other people might feel about familial relationships. I want to share this story with lots of people.
