There is a game about living with depression.

There is a game about living with depression. Depression is one of those illnesses which tortures human mind, but it leaves no bruises or scars. Therefore it is difficult for non depressed people to grasp the seriousness of depression. And due to all misinformation presented by the media, it is also often difficult for them to understand it. The game is called depression quest. Depression quest is an interactive fiction game where you play as someone living with depression. You are given a series of life events and have to attempt to manage your illness, relationships, job and possible treatment. This game aims to show other sufferers of depression that they are not alone in their feelings, and to illustrate to people who may not understand of the illness the depths it can do to people. Since the aim is to spread awareness there is no minimum amount you have to pay to play the game.
