I used to speak to the wall

by Gib - 48 Hour Compo Entry

I used to speak to the wall ( a game about Schizophrenia ) is my second participation in the Ludum Dare. Like the first time, it was a total blast !

IUTSTTW is less a game than a short interactive story with no real goal. Find your way in the mind of the subject, and make the good choice. The story has three different endings, either good or bad.


There are many things I would have loved to add, such as music or more interaction, but ultimately ran out of time. I also apologize for the english mistakes I left there and there :/

IUTSTTW has been made with FlashPunk.


Feel free to discuss about your understanding of the story in the comments !


EDIT : Like rawbits pointed out in the comments, the game is more about DID than Schizophrenia, sorry for the misunderstanding..

EDIT 2 : Seems like some people on Twitter are searching for the 3rd ending without success. Actually, it doesn't come exactly as I would have wanted to.. This will be corrected in the improved version.

For now, I can give you a ( big ) hint. Try ( and I said "try" :p ) to kill both personnality, then search for a special object.

I loved it! And I found the third ending quite easily. Of course, some music would have been fine, but I know what it is ^^

Your game is really good, but you have some confusion in mental diseases. Schizophrenia HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH multiple personalities!

Please read these to clear this out:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizophrenia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissociative_identity_disorder

Anyway your game is ok. And it's about DID...

Hum.. ahem.. yeah....

Well, I learned something. I feel quite bad now. Since I had the intention to make an improved version, I'll correct that mistake. Thanks for the heads up man ! :)

Schizophrenia and DID are often mixed up because the symptoms are rather close, though there's indeed a difference. Maybe this could clears things a little bit :

http://www.thebrainhealth.com/schizophrenia-vs-dissociative-identity-disorder.html

The "Confusion or disturbance with identity" paragraph shows the most patent differences. Based on these statements, I'd say this game is about Dissociative Disorder.

I like "character changing" idea as you walk through different rooms and that dialogs are awesome!

Good work! ;)
