“The game is supposed to reflect the inner struggle, depressive feelings and the emotional journey of a woman and well, if being a woman feels even remotely like this I can only condone with you ladies.”

“The Lady deceives you with its simplicity and reminds you with its brutality that some things are not easily overcome.”
Lady Wasd

“A true indie game, The Lady gives players a peek at how scary mental illness can be and provides a strange, yet comforting source for those who may be struggling with their own mental health.”

About This Game

“The Lady” is an emotional 2D Surreal Puzzle Horror adventure.

The Lady is a surrealist emotional journey that takes The Lady through a series of fever dream hallucinations, while being at odds with inner struggles of anxiety and depression. She encounters multiple versions of herself throughout the game, unsure of which versions to trust. From the initial confusion, to all out anxiety that one would experience with panic disorder, it's all there for you to explore first hand through the eyes of The Lady.

The Gameplay Mechanics are inspired by classic SNES and Turbo Grafx16 type games. The gameplay difficulty is brutal, just like life itself.

The game is displayed in a “waist up” cinematic style, for a more personal experience. Gameplay features side-scrolling exploration, puzzle solving, retro arcade-style boss battles, and plays in letterbox full screen HD.
