About

AShadowWithoutLight is a walking simulator/platformer to experience the states of bipolar disorder. You control a being, set into a lonely world with abstract structures and atmospheric lighting. Days passes as seconds and you need to handle your mental state while exploring the world. You are constantly switching between periods of mania and depression, also your stable moments in between seems to keep getting shorter. You can find mood stabilizers and antidepressants all around the world, however, the the dose of medication is on you – watch out!

Your mood is constantly going up and down, but not in any linear way. You can not predict when your mood switches, however, you get a feeling for it if you play some time. If you get to far into mania, your screen starts shaking and you get unpredictable fast. Too much into depression and you start to move slow and your the gravitation is weighting your head. But good news! You can keep stable if you correctly dose your medicine! Overdosing, taking the wrong or to a wrong time are increasing the negative effects on you, so watch out!
