Depression Quest

Now that we’re done with the indie games, if any of you want to explore more games but don’t want to pay or download, I suggest looking a Depression Quest.  I know both Steph and Brad mentioned this before, and after just posting the article from The Guardian about the creator, Zoe Quinn, I decided to play it.

As someone who’s been there with depression, between friends, family and personal issues, I find the game amazingly represents how people feel when they are depressed.  It’s one of the hardest things to explain to someone who doesn’t understand how it works.

At the end, there is a nice post from the creators that offers a feeling of “you’re not alone.”

    I actually downloaded this after Steph talked about it in class. It was a strange shift from the FPS games we’ve been playing in class to the “choose your own adventure” style of this game. I have to say I wasn’t all that impressed with it (though the intent is obviously admirable). Throughout a lot of the game, there were obviously good and bad choices, and after one play-through I was basically just making choices to see what would happen.
