Depression Quest

One of the most interesting “choose your own path” games that I have played is the Depression Quest. It’s a game where you put yourself in the shoes of a depressed person and make daily life decisions. I loved how well-constructed the situations were, they make you relate so well if you have been there before. If you haven’t, the details will bring you so close to being inside the shoes of a depression victim and how they think. Unlike the rest of the games, depression quest has a set of rules and boundaries to cross out the options/ solutions that a non-depressed person would have taken. What I found surprising about the game, is that even though it is supposed to feel depressing, but in some  situations through the game I felt better to know that I am not the only one who could possibly feel this way.

The only thing I did not like about the game is that if it falls in the hands of a depressed person it might make them feel even worse.
