“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.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Про цю гру

“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.

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.

After playing this for a while, first let me just say, I feel for this dev. Second, buy this. It is a lesson in empathy. If you have friends prone to depression and you could never really get inside their heads and understand what they were thinking, buy this.

Before I begin (and you buy/play it) keep this in mind: This is not a normal game. It is an interactive text-based story.

The gameplay is a very little exploration (but if you aren't interest you can go straight to the objective), walking from one place to another. The music and sound effects are ok and the graphics is good, it was made in RPG Maker Ace, so you can have an idea about it.

The deep, dark and sad (and maybe dangerous) story is presented in many text screens, but very well organized and written. You will want to know more and more as you play it.

It has a short story, about 1 to 1,5 hours of gameplay, and I was pretty surprised in the end. That's all I can say without ruin your experience.

If you have some depression problem or your life is not ok, you should prepare yourself before play it.
If you are ok in those areas, it's definitely worth try this title.

I suggest you play this game to understand what it's like to have the entire world breaking you down emotionally & physically, what it feels like to have no soul mate because you felt too ugly for any girl to date you, What it feels like to have a deadbeat job because some ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ boss doesn't like you, What it feels like to get picked on by some other ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s because of their sadism or so called "perfection" & finally if you like a well written script then this game is for you but be warned this game does deal with serious subjects like suicide for example so be prepared for a very mature story that has no happy ending. (Before I end this short review be prepared for a lot of reading in the game just so you know what the gameplay is, the music is awesome to listen to & screen tearing is the only con I can address because it happens a lot)

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. :)
