Actual Sunlight: A Video Game About Depression
Video games about depression are not common. While most games are fun because they create fictions around powerful characters in fantasy lands, depression games do the opposite, making a game about a character with a real life issue in a real life setting.
Actual Winter is an interactive story about depression in which you play as Evan Winter, a man who is suffering from depression. Actual Sunlight is a thought-provoking game in which you experience the thoughts and decisions of a man suffering from depression. While the game itself is minimal, Actual Sunlight sheds an important light on an important subject and does so admirably.
