Providing Emotional Relief Through Video Games

Mission Statement

We create video games that provide a safe platform for emotional release and self-discovery.

By creating video games that provide emotional release, promote self-discovery, and allow self-expression, we can help people relieve stress, and understand themselves for a better future.

Game Jam Releases

Our jam games are not as refined as our bigger projects since game jams are timed challenges. But we still aim at our goals and many players love them!

Carl's Tea Party

Carl the spider is having some of his friends over for a tea party. This is fine. He planned this it should be fine...

It most definitely is not fine.

Carl the spider suffers from anxiety attacks. Help him manage his anxiety and have a good time with his friends as they come over for tea.

Carl's tea party is a visual novel made for Mini Jam 124: Warmth - itch.io.

Controls: Use the mouse to select dialog options and to fill teacups when prompted to.

Content Warnings:

ANXIETY: This game deals with a spider who suffers from anxiety. If this is a trigger for you, please keep in mind the quit button is always a way out. It is just a game; you don't need to worry about Carl.

SPIDERS: This game has spiders. If you are scared of spiders, you might want to avoid this game. We don't have any jump scares, but it will have a lot of spiders as main characters throughout the game. Keep that in mind before playing.

TEAPOTS: This game has a potentially scary tea pot in it. We are not responsible if you develop a fear of teapots from playing our game.

Kobold Fishing

Jam release. Desktop PC recommended, but some phones can play it with random success.

Phone play is not guaranteed. (We didn't actually aim for phones when developing due to the jam having limited time. It is just a happy accident that it sometimes works there.)

Description:

Assist the kobolds as they search the ocean for fish with the help of a magic orb that uses gold. As you catch fish, they become more valuable but catch too many of the same kind and they will go extinct. You will have to manage the fish and your gold so that you can keep fishing. If the orb runs out of power, or you run out of fish it's the end of the fishing trip.

Use the mouse to direct the boat.

Stop to catch fish.

Have fun.

*No kobolds were harmed to make this game.

Our Projects

Seek

A VR experience about seeking objects, self expression, and discovery.

Screenshot of a virtual room with objects scattered about, and a panel with what objects to find.

This is a mockup screenshot, final game graphics and interface is still a work in progress!

Alpha Version Features

  • Explore a single house with randomly hidden objects inside!

  • Seek out the stray objects hidden within. Use a bracelet interface to track what items you still need to find.

  • No time limits, mistakes, or speed run scores. Just relax and enjoy at your own pace, regardless of skill level.

  • Use a magical dowsing rod to find those more evasive items. No penalties for using it, because everyone needs help sometimes.

  • Collecting all items will celebrate your success.

  • The experience resets on completion, allowing you to play as many times as you need.

Final Game Features

All the above features of the Alpha Version, and then some more:

  • Open up magical gates into alien homes by selecting sets of magical runes. The same code will lead to the same place, so you can revisit all your favorites!

  • Decorate your own alien house! Express yourself and enjoy your second home!

  • Receive thank you letters from the aliens as you help them out. They also give you keys that can be used to unlock more decorations for your own home! It feels good to be thanked for helping others and see the buildup towards a larger goal of collecting everything!

Additional information on how to buy the game, proper screenshots, and so on will be updated onto here soon, the above design is still in progress.

Doing Dishes

A VR and traditional desktop dish cleaning experience.

Alpha Version Features

  • Relax by cleaning the dishes. Put them in the soap, rinse them off, and place them on the drying rack.

  • Smash dishes by dropping or throwing them. Watch the dishes shatter as you relieve your aggression (or just make mistakes).

  • Press a reset button at any time to clean everything up and get a fresh set of dirty dishes.

  • Enjoy the act of cleaning, or the act of destruction. There is no win or lose to avoid feelings of judgement. Just do whatever you feel like doing with the dishes as you relieve emotional stress and relax.

Final Game Features

  • To be determined. We are still at work designing!

Additional information on how to buy the game, proper screenshots, and so on will be updated onto here soon, the above design is still in progress.
