Congrats on getting greenlit, I'll try to pick this up as soon as I can.

Don't let the depression aspect fool you; it's freaking hilarious! But in a kind of dark, meaningful way.
Dorny Mar 8 @ 8:31pm 
Awesome idea! I need this for my life.

An incredible interavtive short story! But, get ready, it is hard.

good graphics doesn't mean a better game,like this game shows perfectly.The writing is incredible in my opinion!

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.

Amazing! I really hope it gets added to Steam!
Merlandese Feb 26 @ 7:06pm

It sounds great, especially because it is such a different type of game!

Got a copy with the recent event. Great game.

Voted. I played the Unity version and, even though it has some bugs and you can't skip the pages of text you've already read, I really like the story and the writing.

There is a Linux version on the developers website.

Нет Linux версии? Я буду голосовать назло нытиков как Shizz
No linux version? GOOD. I will up vote just to spite whiners like Shizz

I can see a lot of familiarity in the game and points in my life in the past.

Sad how some people may look at this game's character as some sorta cliche depressed guy withouth realizing that he could be the exactly portrait of a neighbor, coworker or college friend. This game isn't for everyone as it shouldnt be. Upvoted XD

I logged in and did the stupid steam verification thing just to vote for this game. That's saying a lot, as I'm very, very lazy. This game is an incredible experience. It manages to be both blunt in its theme and subtle in its nuances. Actual Sunlight is an incredibly well written and immersive exploration of a tragically depressed person's mind and the psyche of the contemporary white collar corporate organism.
Upvoted, I played the RPGMaker edition in March last year, and it hit me like a truck. I personally feel like the game was one of the strongest to surface during the last year. Should def. be on steam.

To the people saying this isn't a game: Fuck off and play some more CoD, yeah?

I was really excited to try this, it seemed good... then the plot came. I'm usually not one for picking at long intros, but when it's text it gets boring. AND JUST WHEN YOU THINK IT'S DONE, whatever you click on always brings up some other ridiculous text story that you can't skip. What I gathered is this is basically the cliche depressed guy who has no life, except this time he's fat and a complete pervert. Everything is very polygonal and choppy, and usually don't complain about this, especially since it's on the Unity Engine. Keep this away from gaming platforms in general and make a short movie or book.

Nope nope nope. Enough of these non games. Make a film or write a graphic novel. This isn't a game and doesn't belong on Steam.

This isn't a game, it has no place on steam. It's a half arsed attempt at grabbing money. Make a short film.

Get it!

I never have upvoted a VX game and I never will, get or design a better engine, as VX is a toy.

Asymptote Jan 8 @ 8:07pm 
wow... I'm about 5 minutes in and the narrative hits very close to home. I'm looking forward for the rest of the game

GL!

This is a very daring way of making a game, and it's all too infrequent that someone puts this much effort in to a storyline. Looking forward to seeing more media.
