One More Week
Created in one day "One More Week" is a Twine game where the player takes on the role of a high school student during their week of exams. The player is tested through a variety of narrative puzzles in the form of tests. As they go through their final week the player is exposed to the stress and emotional turmoil of a high school student as they watch their work and social life fall apart in front of them.
We were tasked with creating a game that evoked an emotion, for us this was sadness. We worked to explore a small portion of mental illness respectfully. To do this we added tests that were meant to inspire a sense of dread. This did not seem to be enough so I added a character for the player to connect to. This was a friend who would start to distance themselves as the game progressed, and in the end the player would be left alone.
