Description

Max, an Autistic Journey is a retro style top-down turn-based RPG filled with mini games, monsters and most of all, heart. Developed by Stéphane Cantin, who is just a devoted dad who made a game about his son’s autism.

During the game player’s step into the shoes of Max, a ten year old boy who must find ways to deal with everyday life while being diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Many players will discover a world familiar but alien to them. Some may relate to Max's story all too well. Regardless where you fall in the spectrum of life, Max, an Autistic Journey delivers an entertaining, imaginative and informative trip worth taking.

This retro-inspired RPG gives players not only a unique gaming experience, but an insight into a world many people have never seen. While the visualization of the beasts may be fantasy, the emotions and frustrations they represent are very real for a lot of people.


There are few greater inspirations in life than one's love of their child. Max, an Autistic Journey is Stéphane’s inspired interactive love letter about his son Max who was born with autism that he worked hand in hand with throughout the development of the title. While there is a wide spectrum of autism, this game focuses on Max, where he falls in that spectrum and how he experiences and deals with daily life.

In no way do I mean to be offensive (*cough* Autistic comment hunters *cough*) but I kinda find it like an autistic joke. Being diagnosed with autism I personally know about this and make autistic jokes (I don't care about other people [Donald Trump *cooooougggggghhhhhhh*]) but I find it sort of offensive. {Im not offended just seems a bit offensive to how it portrays autistic children}. But this is just my silly little personal opinion and I don't want autinazis reporting me for crappy reasons by reading the first 2 sentences. Also hardly anyone knows about this game and will get sucked into the void of crappy/good/IDK/IDEK (if you know what i mean.................)
