New Video Game Captures the Battle With Mental Illness

This looks so cool. I’m glad these issues are being brought forward in a way that can be experienced. Such a clever idea. 

Mental illness really is a battle and a huge journey. One that perhaps never ends. 

As my favorite professor always said: fight the good fight.


About rachelmeeks

My name is Rachel Meeks. I have endometriosis, an incurable pain condition, IBS, a digestive illness, and PCOS, which causes irregular periods and infertility. After keeping my illnesses a secret, I started to get upset about how my fellow sick people were being mistreated because of ignorance. I knew that I'd need to stand up, make some noise, wear my heart on my sleeve, and admit that I am not well to make a difference.

  1. It was creepy starting out, so I didn’t watch all of it. I’ve been off seizure medication for a year now, but I still can’t tolerated certain sounds or flashing lights. That growling was one of those noises I freak out over.

      I also should have written more about the game development, since that’s the really interesting part. The game developers teamed up with mental health professionals and patients to give a visual to the various ways each illness “feels,” a concept I found very intriguing.
