I love the idea of bringing game devs and musicians together to jointly promote one another. I'm all for that and would love to see more of it!

HOPE is a simple game that deals with complex issues, and it does it in such a succinct, fun and yet fabulously hard-hitting way. Depression and anxiety are issues that so many people deal with on a regular basis, and any game that helps spread awareness of how that feels, and also the best way to help, is a winner in my book!

So play this. Enjoy the great music (maybe check the band out too). Lean back. Take a breath. Think about whether anyone you know might need a helping hand with something. Or whether you're the one that needs a helping hand.

Honestly, games like this uplift me so much and fill me with... funnily enough... hope. Great stuff, really enjoyed it, hopefully many other people come across this and feel the same way!

What did you use to make it?

hi! i used bitsy: https://ledoux.itch.io/bitsy

Somehow this really hits home, I had to pause for a minute.

I really loved this game. It spoke to me very personally. It almost felt like i was the character. I cried during the panick attack scene. It was really well done, good and simple design with a short and beautiful story. I also love the message in the end. Thanks for giving some hope !

Really Cool little game, enjoyed messing around with it

So sweet and evocative! The music didn't play for me but it might be something to do with my settings. I love how much you were able to do in bitsy, and the retro look! The panic attack was so relatable, great job of evoking those feelings while keeping the game still hopeful overall. 

Stuck on the title screen,; kept clicking & refreshing. It isn't working.

have u pressed WASD or arrow keys at all? 

I believe you press E instead or a certain ke

An aesthetically pleasing game. I love that…

i’ve had a few panic attacks lately, and the way you captured that encroaching feeling of panic was so brilliant. i knew it was coming when i saw all that clutter and the walls closing in. so good. thank you for this :)

thank you so much for this beautiful, hopeful game <3 <3 <3 and for the precious reminder that we don't always have to do everything by ourselves or face anything alone, and that it's okay to rely on others and be helped <3  I love your work so much and am so happy to be able to play another game by you! :D (also, the music/song by Cable Ties at the end of the game absolutely rocks, it makes me feel so free <3) thank you!!!!!

A relatable experience and a good game to cheer those in doubt of themselves.

This was an awesome game. While the music at the very beginning hurt my ears a bit but everything else was awesome. Thank you.

thanks for the appreciation. would you be okay editing your comment a little bit? i don't really appreciate random mentions of/making light of sexual assault in my comments, even if that's not the intention. cheers!

(+1)

Done. I'm sorry for that.

(+1)

I got a good chunk of confidence after playing it.
So ... thanks for this.

This is so good!!

I liked it very much, loved the music

This was probably the simplest game i've ever played that left a mark on me. The art style is so simple, yet so stylish and nothing like i've ever seen before. The music is on a whole nother level, tying along with each part with the story and impacting the experience in the most desirable way possible!

I didn't just make a gameplay video like everyone else but also added a bit of depth to it, so as to tell the same story, but in a video format. For anyone who's willing to spend a few minutes play a game but dont know what to play, stop looking, here's where's the gold's at.

thanks so much for playing! just watched the video— it's great! really love the little changes you made to fit the video format. love your interpretation of the friend too, i laughed a lot!

Thank you for taking time to check out my video! I'm definitely drawn more towards games made on bitsy than ever before. Thanks again!

Amazing solutions and tricks for a Bitsy game. So much to learn from! The art is fantastic, and the music is really cool (a great initative to bring indie bands and indie game developers!)

(+1)

Loved it! The illustration is super creative and fitting for the game's themes. Great music as well!

(+1)

Outstanding job Cecile! I adored this game. It was short and sweet and the art is aaamazing bro. <3

(+2)

The dialogue, music, sfx, game design, all of it is so good. It felt natural and the music makes me feel a certain emotion, not sure what, maybe nostalgia or the dread of growing up idk. For a really short game, it's got a lot of depth, so much story to tell. I was immediately drawn to the mc's thoughts and  I absolutely loved how they interacted with that other guy, even though they were just talking and packing it brought a smile to my face. It was quite an interesting experience. I hope you get all the love for making this game!

(+1)

The part of packing is really sweet and clever! And the music is perfectly matched the game.

Eu amei esse game, é tão maravilhoso e as musicas são excelentes !!!! 😍💜

Parabéns e obrigada 💜

loved it, absolute vibe city.

The game had just the sound of the door and the milk. We didn't heard any music :(

(+1)

uh oh! did you play it on mobile? i need to fix the audio for mobile in particular, but it should be working fine on desktop (do let me know if you're having this issue on desktop though!)

It was on desktop!

(+1)

damn ok i'll see if i can look into fixing it this weekend, thanks for letting me know!
