Humble Bundle of Love for Brandon Boyer - just a few days left...!
Actual Sunlight on HuffPost Live!
Description
Release date: May 2013
Actual Sunlight is a short interactive story about love, depression and the corporation.

The game puts you in the role of Evan Winter, a young professional in Toronto, as he moves through three distinct periods of his life. The story is linear, unavoidable and (hopefully) thought-provoking. You experience his perceptions, fall under the consequences of his decisions, and meet everyone who didn’t change him.

Gameplay is minimal, and serves only to move from one part of the (admittedly) text-heavy story to the next. The game fiercely attempts to be worth it.

A NOTE ABOUT ACTUAL SUNLIGHT

Due to explicit language, Actual Sunlight is not appropriate for players under the age of 18.

It also deals with extremely mature themes, including depression and thoughts of suicide. Similar to other forms of art that tackle these issues, Actual Sunlight can be an extremely powerful emotional experience – before downloading it, please first consider what your reaction to a book, film or piece of music in a similar vein might be.

Don't let the depression aspect fool you; it's freaking hilarious! But in a kind of dark, meaningful way.

I think the idea of a game being used as a tool to help combat or cope with depression, or even to educate, is an excellent use of the medium.
