About the Story

This is pretty different. I heard about the tragic suicide of Aaron Swartz last spring and made this game in ten hours. It loops around a lot; thereís some debate over what the ending of the game is, I guess, but my point is that thereís not an ending.

When I was twelve, I tried to kill myself. Iíve dealt with depression my whole life, but that was the last time I succumbed to suicidal ideation. Itís been nineteen years. This game discusses a lot of things pretty franklyó completed suicide attempts of friends, being rushed to the ER, using Christianity to prop up my self-discipline for a while, my fears for my children.

You can argue whether or not this is a GAME, I guess, but itís definitely me.
