About the Story

A text adventure about living with obsessive compulsive disorder.

This game was created for the Global Game Jam 2016, and was written in under 48 hours. The theme was "ritual", and we used the diversifier "Do you even care?"

Sympathy, February 4, 2016
by SeanStark (Probally in a library; they have computers too!)

This game, although simple gives the player an overwhelming sense of what it must be like to suffer from OCD. I smiled the first time when I (Spoiler - click to show)couldn't get out of the shower because my feet weren't clean enough but soon enough I felt the anxiety come back. My only downside I can see seems to come from a few little bugs, but that is understandable as it was written in 48 hours. I don't think any player could figure out (Spoiler - click to show)how to get into bed and sleep since I don't think a bed was put into the room.
Still this game had a great concept and with a few tweaks might be very great.
