was a fun 100% p good game too!

this game has a really bad influence on my mental health

more than 70% of the fanbase hasn't even played the game

half the people who say they like this game don't even know who p-chan is but ACTUALLY if you take the time to play through a few endings it provides some good commentary on some hardships that streamers face as well as struggles with mental health and co-dependency, etc. the gameplay loop might be an issue for people with youtube shorts brains but i didn't find it to be too much of a problem. and the soundtrack goes CRAZYYYY

gralam w to majac jakis mega insane epizod zycia moze dlatego mi sie podobalo i troche zem porelowal takze mega fajne nie polecam

Needy Girl Overdose or Needy Streamer Overload (depending on the localization of your region) is a rather short indie visual novel or as the developer calls it "multi-ending ADV" about the mentally ill streamer OMGKawaiiAngel (Ame irl). Her goal is to reach one million followers in just a month of time, and you (a character named Pi) are the one who is going to help her achieve this goal.

Ame can only stream at nighttime, so you get the time before that to bring her to do various things, like gaming, watching streams, browsing the internet or consuming drugs, which may lead to new stream ideas but also control her three different stats: stress, affection and mental darkness.
Depending on your choices, and/or her stats, you will unlock one of the 27 endings (2 which are optional/secret and one true ending which can only be unlocked after every none optional ending has been reached).

The game, including the dialogues, possible streams and endings do depict themes of depression, drug abuse, self-harming and suicide and is therefore not for people, whom have problems with these kinds of topics.

Graphically, the game is presented in a cutesy pixel-art style. The user interface is designed like the more classic version of Windows, like the login screen of Windows XP (the game even calls the OS Windose 20). There are a lot of references hidden in the game, including icons in the menus, background elements of Ame's streams and even dialogues and chat messages. The game also includes various real fan-art of the main character, which sometimes are posted on the in game version of Twitter.
The soundtrack itself is also very cool. The themes playing on day 1 to 10 and day 11 to 20 are quite cutesy and hype, while the theme between day 21 to 30 is more serious. The streams are also accompanied by tracks reflecting the mood of the stream, with some being hype, some being dark and some being more emotional. There aren't a lot of other sounds besides the music and various UI sounds, but that's not even necessary.

All in all a very good game, but rather short, and I can see if someone has its problems with it, if they have problems with the depicted topics.
