In My Mind
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
In My Mind is a small games experience designed to represent what it’s like living inside my head. The gameplay involves the player walking around a room and interacting with furniture to talk out loud to themselves. This is a direct representation of how I talk to myself to sort through various thoughts and problems I am having.
All of the dialogue has been pulled directly from my own mental health blog, which I’ve kept since I was first diagnosed with Bipolar. The game doesn’t follow any sort of linear pattern of events and each person would experience my thoughts in a different order. This is to represent the disjointed nature of my own thoughts. I have aimed to create the experience of the player having to put these thoughts together themselves to better understand my experiences.

All of these can be filtered out of the experience in the settings.
If you can only afford the minimum price, go for it! If you could afford to give me anything higher, that'd be grand! If you want to give a little extra to also help cover people that can't afford it, please do!
