A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Have you ever felt disconnected?

(Developers note: I hope this game will help to spread awareness of a little known personality disorder called Alexithymia, the inability to feel or express ones own emotions properly)

Great job! I love the story and message here! Deeper than it originally appears to be, which is always a nice touch! Thanks for making a great game! :D

Great little game! Well crafted environments, attention to detail, and introduced me to Alexithymia, which was an interesting condition I had never heard of before. You have my vote, best of luck!

This game has an amazing story, one that can make you laugh and cry. Memorable characters and scenes, beautiful maps, easy gameplay. 

It will open your mind to Alexithymia, a personality construct difficult to relate to... Understood is a must play.

Thank you so much for playing the game, I'm glad it got it's point across. :D

nice!
