About This Game

What's Cordychosis?
Cordychosis is a point-and-click adventure game that takes place within a single room! While you can't leave, you can certainly adjust your surroundings using your trusty (makeshift) time machine. However, due to certain structural limitations, your time machine can only travel backwards exactly 5 years into the past, shortly after you had been initially imprisoned. But no need to despair! You can travel back and forth between the past and the present, so use your powers of time-travel to collect a variety of objects, alter the course of time, and find a way to escape the room (and free yourself from your own madness).

Small Changes Can Have Big Consequences
By making tiny adjustments in the past, you can make some pretty substantial (and potentially horrifying) changes in the present. Leave a rotten apple in the dirt and it might grow into a beautiful tree. Or it might cause a terrifying infestation. Who knows! You have nothing to lose so you might as well find out. The consequences of your actions are a problem for future-you.

Be Kind To Yourself
In Cordychosis, you begin the game with only one friend, a highly neurotic version of yourself from 5 years ago. Enlisting the aid of your previous self will be imperative to your progress, but earning your own cooperation may prove to be a challenge.

While the possibilities of the future are endless, Cordychosis is a narrative game with one definitive ending. However, the path to reach that ending may not be a linear one. This is a game which encourages exploration and messing around with the timeline, just to see what happens! You can always undo your actions later should they have horrifying consequences. (Probably.)


Find Secrets and Solve Puzzles
Cordychosis contains a variety of puzzles. Harness the power of time-travel (how does leaving objects behind in the past affect the future?) or partake in more traditional puzzles. Unlock unusual contraptions! Find hidden messages and combinations using helpful tools! The lens from a giant eyeball monster, for example, may allow you to see things you may have missed when you were using your normal, inadequate human eyeballs. Solving the problem of who's leaving these clues behind and why, however, is a mystery in and of itself.


In Cordychosis, you can collect teeth! All kinds of teeth! Decorate your room with teeth! Hang teeth up on the walls! Give teeth to your past-self to play with! Something special might happen!

Cassette Tapes!?
You may also find old cassette tapes strewn about the fabric of time, hiding within its mysterious folds. Want to change the background music? Just pop open the lid on your handy-dandy cassette player and toss in a tape!

Decorate your journal with fun, adorable, and mildly disturbing stickers! Stick them all over the settings menu! Stick them on each other! Find new sticker sheets hiding in the world for even more (slightly chaotic) sticker fun!
