A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

An abstract one-against-many struggle to maintain position.

You have an ever encroaching sense of being unwanted, and you must face it with all of your energy. The weight of ideas wrestle, and multitudinous small thoughts topple heavy truths. Shoving your own way, or fleeing in circles, neither is a home. There is space for many to enjoy the pedestal, but suddenly everyone has started pushing.

For my development I used the following diversifiers.

This is how it Feels

The game raises awareness of how hate speech or unfair accusations feel, and what kind of effect they have on their targets.

Nevertheless, She Persisted

A character stands as one against many.

Thanks For Playing!

Install instructions

The game was designed with gamepads in mind but also works with standard mouse/keyboard controls (WASD to move, mouse to look).

If the controller does not seem to register, try unplugging/replugging it in.

If Mac gives security prompts just follow their instructions until you are able to launch the downloaded file.

Linux/PC are untested, please let me know if you have any issues with the builds and I will address them.
