A downloadable game for Windows

A day in the life of a hardcore gamer with a serious problem.

Today will be different. You can make that happen. This game was inspired by hundreds of stories people have shared - including those who struggled with MMO addictions. Our character has thankfully overcome that problem, but their life hasn't gotten any better.

I want to stress that this is *just* meant to represent a day. Depression can't be cured in a day, and it won't be in this game. It probably isn't fun to play. It isn't meant to be.

"Depression Level 50 is what happens when you realize you can't finish your IGMC project on time. You don't get a cool medieval space expedition game called Merlin's Explorers and the Mysterious Planet. You get the crushing despair of doing all that work only to come up short. You get ...this."

Hello. A great idea and nice execution. I've played your game, and as someone who used to suffer from depression, I thought it captured it very accurately. Good job!
