NSFW language in game, FYI

Welcome to PSYCHIATRY, a game flawlessly simulating the experience of being a Psychiatrist.

Each patient you see has a unique mental disorder which can be cured by responding with the correct replies. Some disorders prefer to be placated, whereas other prefer to be told the harsh truth. And then some just want praise. Your goal is to diagnose and cure as many patients as possible in one work day. Enjoy!

Gameplay Notes:
- A workday lasts 52 seconds.
- Right-click to skip through dialogue
- 16:9 only (sorry, but here's some common 16:9 resolutions you can easily select): 1280x720, 1366x769, 1920x1080.


CODE EDITOR: Visual Studio
MUSIC: FL Studio

Please don't look at the source. It's the ugliest code I've ever written. Dear god it's like a hurricane went through.

LINK FIXED! Sorry, was set to Draft, not Public.

Windows link is broken! Is it set to private/draft? That happened to me earlier.

CannibalHolocaust/10 - would help no one and drive an old man mad again.

Nice idea! But yeah, maybe just 1 second of extra reading time would be helpful

Really funny game, I spotted the jumper cables reference. Nice innovative gameplay. I enjoyed the music too. Only problem was that once you figured out what was the right answer for a given person you could just spam that answer.
