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

“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.”

關於此遊戲

“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.

For anyone who has ever suffered through the many stages of depression or felt like the world was crumbling around them while you just sat there and watched. This is the game for you. It's also for the people that have friends going through this.
The game is very text heavy, there is no gameplay as such. It's more an interactive story on social commentary, past events and life as some people know it. It's a work of art. And no, not that 'Dear Esther' kind of art.

It will be different things for different people, but if you relate at all to the subjects this game covers you can expect it to deliver in spades.

Thank you so much for sharing Will O'Neill. :)

As a person that suffers greatly from depression, this game was highly relatable. Feeling like no one understands you or bothers to even care about your issues. Kind of having deep conversations with yourself, and fighting with yourself. Depression is terrible and I wouldn't wish that on anyone...so to see this kind of scenario actually laid before me in such a well written manner was refreshing..but also saddening. Although I wouldn't handle most of my situations like the main character did, I could still empathize and actually feel care towards the character. In my opinion this game is something everyone should play and give a thought to..even if its only just once. There's a bunch of reading..well its basically an "interactive story", but it was well worth the read.The author makes valid points towards the current state of society, how we treat our fellow man, and things that most people wouldn't publicly say. I honestly hope whoever reads this will pick this game up and see for themselves.

"Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem." Right..?

Depression can be incredibly destructive. Some of you know really well how it makes everything worse. You don't enjoy things you liked. You don't want to do anything, it doesn't make any sense to you. In some cases you want to die to run away from your depression.

This game... or an interactive story... is about this.

Don't go to the roof. Life is cool.

First of all, this is a mature game. I don't mean mature as too much violence mature. Actual Sunlight tackles a very tough subject. Depression. If you are depressed, don't play this, because it will get you even more depressed. Even if you're not depressed, this game will very likely make you sad if you pay attention to its story.

My hours played do not seem like much here, but I bought this game before it's steam release and played it through, and it was amazing.

Actual Sunlight is probably the most accurate depiction of depression in a game to date. It can hardly be defined as a game, really. It is more of an interactive story. Don't let that stop you though, if you're not depressed, you'd be doing yourself a favour by buying it. I can't go into a too in depth review without giving to much away, but it is about a young man named Evan Winters who is suffering from depression. I believe that a lot of people can relate to what he's going through, even if not depressed.

The game was made with RPG maker, so expect the graphics you see in the screenshots. If you don't like reading too much, you may not want to buy it, but that would be a mistake.

At this price, this is a story worth reading and seeing.

9/10

An honest, heartfelt, and visceral depiction of what it can be like to be depressed, and how self-perpetuating and destructive it can be. Highly recommended.
