A reflection on a past life experience and how I changed because of it.

Note: Please use a desktop browser. There seems to be an issue with some of the links on Mobile. If you get stuck on 'That's it.' at the start, that means you have an incompatible browser. I'm looking to fix this issue soon, but for now this may not work on a mobile device. Sorry!

Very interesting take on the theme, and a very touching story. Visuals are also quite minimal and pleasing.

Can someone please explain the "That's it" part? I clicked it around 1000 times and all it does is creating lines.

I'm missing something...

That hit me pretty hard, I'm well accustomed to the feelings the story describes :c

If anyone else hits an issue with 'That's it' not continuing the story, could you please let me know the browser you're using in the comments. Thanks!

Ah. That's it doesn't work on Safari, OSX.

Thanks. Must be an iOS/Safari bug.

Gosh this is a very familiar situation to me. I like the focus on planning, and the ambiguity about whether making plans really makes a difference, because in truth it is hard to tell whether you are beating depression or not sometimes. The parallel with state space simulations mentioned at the beginning is very interesting, I wonder if in some runs it's possible to come back to that in the resolution? I'd be very interested to know if treating one's own health instrumentally in this way is part of the ambivalence being explored here. In any case, very thought provoking work, thank you for making it!

Fixed the bug. Thanks for letting me know about it. Please leave a comment if anyone's still having trouble with the game.

Oh man. That was intense. I hope you have reached a place where things are looking up.

Excellent use of the medium to tell a story, and a unique take on the theme.

Really interest way to interpret the theme. I love story games, and this one was no exception. Reminded me of Depression Quest, but better. Great job!

The layout really fits your story.
It tooks me to the guts and I kept playing it a few times. Thank You.

I was put off by the title at first but I gave it a chance and wow, this was powerful stuff. 5/5

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
