I just ‘played’ Depression Quest and I’m nearly in tears. I’ve been at quite a low point the last few weeks, and answered honestly out of morbid curiosity of where the story would take me. This hits so close to home it hurts.
This isn’t really a ‘game’, and it’s not really fun, but it’s something I think everyone should play, especially if you know someone suffering from depression. I feel like it’s a really accurate representation of living with depression, it’s well written, and accompanied with the music, it’s easy to lose yourself in the story as it’s unfolding, to really feel what’s happening as you continue through it.
I wish this had been around when I was first diagnosed to show to my parents, this would have made a great educational tool for them to understand what I was going through.
