A new narrative-driven platformer that deals with depression, self harm, and the search for deeper meaning in a new game from indie developer Freaky Creations is now available for PC via Steam.
The game, To Leave, puts players in the role of Harm. He's a character who is suffering from manic depression. In possession of a magical flying door, Harm makes his way through expansive, vivid levels akin to an Ayahuasca trip in order to fulfill his Plan (which is a way to harvest the souls of his homeworld so that everyone can leave this world and enter Heaven).
“It was liberating to embark on To Leave’s development without concern for what was thought possible for a small Ecuadorian studio," says Creative Director Estefano Palacios. "I’ve never done anything more difficult in my life! To Leave is a deeply personal experience. Sometimes harrowing, often puzzling, it gives players something they don’t expect in a self-contained, interactive narrative.”
To Leave is now available on Steam for $7.99 – a 20% discount. The game will return to its original price of $9.99 on Oct. 11 and is available in both English and Spanish.
