What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We find it that it might be difficult to make a game about Social Anxiety Disorder, so during the development we want to hear as much as possible form the players.
We want to create SAD RPG close to the community, we want to make changes based on your feedback and we want to constantly add new content based on players reactions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At least five months, it will depend on how much new content (quests, places, enemies, items, skills, minigames...) will be created based on the players feedback.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“In final version of SAD RPG we plan to include: main storyline, new unique locations, new items, new enemies, new side quests, new minigames and upgrades to the game mechanics based on the community feedback.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“SAD RPG in Early Access version is fully playable with functional RPG systems, inventory, combat, main storyline, side quests and minigames.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to increase the game price based on the amount of new content added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are very curious how the community would react to our game and the way it shows the social anxiety problem. We want to hear people's opinions, suggestions, interpretations and react to them in our development of SAD RPG: A Social Anxiety Role Playing Game.
Please feel free to give us your feedback on SAD RPG Steam Discussion Board.”

In SAD RPG: A Social Anxiety Role Playing Game the protagonist, since the very first moments of being awake in the morning, has to face the challenges of living in an odd vaporwave world of its own. Although everything seems to be more or less fine in the comfort of your bed, soon every move turns out to be a trial and there are anxiety monsters to battle at every corner of your town. Deep down you know it all exists only inside your head and in your heart but you play along, choose your path and put up a fight, but can you win, and how? The game explores the ups and downs of dealing with Social Anxiety Disorder, presenting a totally subjective and impressionistic depiction/view of the inner fight against it, based on real life experiences.


If you suffer from severe anxiety or you were diagnosed with anxiety disorder, please, approach our game with caution and proceed with care when you decide to play it. If experiencing too much unpleasant reaction or troublesome symptoms, act accordingly and do not hesitate to leave the game. Take a break now and then when needed so you won’t get too overwhelmed or upset while playing - it can also be a good idea to play the game in the company of a trusted friend/s.

We believe in you!
