An interesting idea that can be a little frustrating when you don’t know the difference between the protagonist’s mental state and the game just not liking your answers.

i love artsy fartsy bullshit but this game is a big heaping case of whatever

I fuck with the visuals, the aesthetics, the vibes, the twisted horror of this world that feels impossible to truly engage or interact with. Vague in presentation, other beings feeling so alien and disconnected, doing your best to stay focused on whatcha need to get done. I liked how the intrusive thoughts were interspersed with the nicer options, not blocked off to show you how the MC is doing her best to hold on with these meds that just aren't working that well for her. Working just well enough to function and get things done but not enough to stop the pain of the awful shitty thoughts at least being there. You have to see them even if you don't want to/don't pick them. Empty vacant holes within the self you constantly are stepping over to keep functioning.
Simplistic tasks made seemingly herculean by anxieties driven via trauma and continued loops driven by conditions both within and outside of yourself. Agoraphobia transforming others into insurmountable obstacles with nonsensical rules.
I don't think it's necessarily perfect in everything it tries to do. But I dig it and its structure. I dig the separation between the thoughts and you yourself as the reader. I dig the way it tackles disassociation especially. I dig the end and the dread instilled by it. Exhausting and continuous, seemingly never ending in its cruelty. Gotta get that milk.

A short and haunting game, really recommended, but tackles some serious topics and themes, so be weary of that before going in.

Interesting, short concept VN, deals with a lot of heavy topics like depression, suicide and anxiety. Heavily relatable topics and if you are dealing through something like this, I'd recommend causation. The story is fairly simple, you help a girl go buy milk, the rest of the story goes on from there.
