The skinny one.

About the Story

You take up too much room. You are so heavy and solid and real, and you don't want to be. You wish you could be like a child's balloon at a fair, drifting, attached only be a thin string. And you wish the child would let you slip from their hands, and you'd float off into the atmosphere.

Even if everyone would shout below for you to come back, you want to let go. And be free.

A longish Twine game about anorexia with a few bugs, November 16, 2017
by MathBrush
Related reviews: 15-30 minutes

This game is purposely modeled after Depression Quest. Instead of Depression, it models Anorexia, and was constructed as part of an academic sort of study.

This game is fairly long; if you load it up in Twinery, it has a huge amount of nodes and more than 5 endings.

However, the game often felt detached to me, and I ran into several broken pages that I had to back out of.

a bit buggy, October 24, 2017

I think it would be a very good game in the style of DQ. But there are bugs at certain points, which made unplayable some branch of the game.
