This game is a ludic illustration of some of my thoughts on living with depression. If you feel that you might be experiencing something similar and you haven't approached anyone about it, please do. See your doctor, approach a local mental health charity, talk to friends or family. Please do.

(With this being a 72-hour jam game, the quality is not what I would have hoped. In particular, I'm sorry about the colours. I made an early choice to solely use GameMaker's inbuilt palette and regretted it.)
