“The Biggest Challenge In This Game Is Preventing Your Character From Committing Suicide”
Kotaku

“Actual Sunlight Is The Hardest Hitting Game About Depression I’ve Ever Played”
Indiestatik

“Actual Sunlight is a brutal depiction of a man’s life self-destructing, and it’s a game whose central character can only find hope in his own death.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Acerca deste jogo

“I know what you’re thinking: Why keep getting up, day in and day out, even though your life is going nowhere?”

Notorious: Widely considered to be one of the bleakest and best-written experiences in indie gaming, Actual Sunlight challenges you to confront the life of Evan Winter: An overweight, lonely and severely depressed young professional.

Fear the words, not the reading: Presented almost entirely in text, a mixture of sharp observation and pitch black humor captures your interest from provocative beginning to shattering conclusion.

Prepare yourself: Actual Sunlight is a uniquely unforgettable adventure that will etch itself into you as one of the most difficult, haunting and beautiful experiences you have ever had as a gamer.

Key Features


  • An intense, heartbreaking story with themes of video game addiction, unsatisfying work and miserable solitude.
  • Beautiful, original pixel and CG artwork invokes the streets, offices and sanctuaries of Toronto, Canada.
  • Dark and moody original music sets a proper tone for the brutal indifference of real life.

Important Notice


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.

An interesting perspective on depression, one of few games that feel like you're totally inhabiting another person's mind and thoughts

This game shows people who cannot understand a mental illness in friends and family. It gives good insight to what its like to be depressed. This is mostly a text based game, though there is little interactions through out. I enjoyed playing and reading along. Worth the buy, I only wish i could of helped evan.

There's not much to Actual Sunlight. You can't win. You can't lose. All you really do is walk around and examine things or talk to people in an extremely linear fashion. But following along this haunting story of Evan Winter is one you won't soon forget.

It was an interesting experience that made me a little bit uncomfortable, which was the intention of the developer, but I don't feel like the price tag was worth it.

Very well made game, you have no choices, it ends the same every time. If you've ever had to battle with depression this game will effect you a lot. It's a sad but expected ending, a must-buy for anyone who hasn't experienced depression before or for anyone who has.
