That makes essays on empathy especially

That's why: The essence of essays on empathy can be severely summarized as it is a total of ten games that could hardly be different. Each tells a completely different, very human history in different settings. SuperContinentent Ltd. Playing in front of a cyberpunk background, Dear Substance of Kin has a gloomy fantasy setting, Behind Every Great One is anchored in our reality. Also in terms of gameplay, a lot of variety is offered, although reading the well-written conversations are always in the foreground.

In the game Eternal Home Floristry, for example, you compile flower containers for different emotional occasions. In Behind Every Great One, you must divide your time and energy in a dysfunctional relationship to throw the budget and constantly encounter your limits. De Tres Al Cuarto is a small deck builder in which you collect the GAGs for your stand-up program. In the Bookshelf Limbo, on the other hand, you mainly read bookcover in search of a suitable gift.

That's how the game goes with the Mental Health theme

The different games in essays on empathy have a whole range of topics. Among other things, it is about dysfunctional relationships, misogynia, queerphinality and depression. Certain situations are taught and described reliably. A woman breaks crying crying because her male partner dominates the relationship ruthlessly and lets more like a prison. A comedian tells his stand-up partner of maltreatment that he has experienced as homosexuals. Another figure struggles with mating comments that attack your sexuality and the queere community.

For whom is essays on empathy interesting?

Others in turn are almost too short, small gorgeous pieces. Who topics such as depression, LGBTQIA + -urony, abuse or sexual violence cause difficulties, should make a bow around the game collection. Anyone who wants to throw an experimental view of the narrative possibilities of Games and wants to expand their own empathic horizon, gets an versays on empathy a versatile game package.

Conclusion of the editors

Michael Beck @ bossinsky

Even if I could not finish some games due to bugs, I find essays on empathy great. What should I say: I love the pixel style of deconstructeam, the musical accompaniment and the unconventional stories you tell. Above all, however, that the team does not shrink from unpleasant issues and tries to work up them. It was great, in SuperContinentent Ltd. to play the protagonist brandeis from the deconstructeam game The Red Strings Club again. And Behind Every Great One is one of the heaviest games of all time for me, but in a positive sense. And so I do not mean the gameplay, but the toxic relationship of two people worked out there, and how well that succeeds.

An important request: Since our articles from the Mental Health Week are more sensitive topics that have partially requested us a lot while writing, we ask you for a friendly and understanding comment culture at this point. Thank you and have fun reading!
