People usually play video games for fun. They want to experience joy, excitement, or any number of other mostly positive emotions. They maybe want to escape their everyday lives and go somewhere new, or be someone else. Depression Quest therefore seems like a bit of an anomaly. It isn’t fun in any sense of the word, but it needs to be played. It does not allow you to escape reality, but instead forces you to accept it, and come up with a new understanding of yourself and the people around you.
This is the game you wish you had in high school when you felt that nobody understood your pain. Maybe it’s the game you wish you had right now. If you know somebody who seems down, or if you are that person,Depression Quest is something to be played.
