Very accurate game about depression and anxiety, I really like what you did about finding the key to move on and figure it out
Please wait for the game to load!
Scroll down if you want some instruction, or just play the game and get the full, blind experience.
Before playing, ensure you are clicked into the browser, and your keyboard is working. A main mechanic of the game involves figuring out how to move, so don't worry, nothing is broken.
(If you REALLY can't figure it out or get stuck, keep scrolling. Some of the experience may be lost, though.)
The controls will randomly switch between A, D, Space, Left, or Right. Occasionally, you will be stuck for 8-15 seconds regardless of input. This is to simulate both debilitating intrusive thoughts, and the anxiety of moving forward in life while facing problems caused by mental illness.

i LOVE IT. gOD.Whoops caps lock but it's so similar to my own experiences it's scary
i love this so much. from the intrusive thoughts to the partial hospitalization program, it's really accurate and portrays the struggle so well. (I think it was a php, if not, it's real similar)
