This was unbelievably thought-provoking, touching, inspiring, and interesting. The atmosphere of the game is conveyed in such a way that it can be taken in a few different ways. There is a wealth of creativity in the Ludum Dare game jams. If you’re big into indie games (especially free ones) you’ll find plenty of treasure if you follow that link. Check out these brilliant designers games, or enter the competitions yourself if you’re a developer or game design hobbyist.
Particularly, The Lions Song is a must play, game time is estimated at 10 minutes, and it gets deep.
Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
Bless whoever made this.
