I liked the game concept, but I feel that some words can be interpreted as both negative or positive which makes the game a little confusing, if you get my drift. But I lasted way longer than I thought I would, so hooray no depression!
Positive Thinking is key to escape Depression. Thinking creates emotions so choose good thoughts to create emotions that make you feel good.
Use the arrow keys to clear the mind from negative thoughts. Use the Space bar to activate the Flauros to clear every thought on the screen, beware you only have 3 of them.
You can use the visual assets on your own personal or commercial games.

Interesting game idea. Thanks for sharing.
I'm left wondering why "occultism" is considered a negative thought. Actually, a lot of the words in the game have both positive and negative connotations to me, so classifying the thoughts involves a lot of guesswork.
So curiosity is there a win condition or is this like an old arcade game where there is no end.
Hey, being chased by Pyramid Head is a cool idea.
Wow, I lasted more that I expected lol so I guess I'm cured? :D
Man, "Ugly" appears like negative, I don't deserve to live.
LOL, I mean "Ugly" as a perception not objectively . The way we see things . Cause many see ugly in beautiful things.
Optimism is seeing things positively... Why wouldn't optimistic be positive?
Great game with unique game-play i went in thinking it would be a 2D Silent Hill game instead it surprised me in a good way. A very interesting take on the themes of Silent Hill 2 and what James wife is experiencing in the game through James Story.
Hey there! The visuals look amazing, I really like your work! Player experience - wise, however, I think this game achieves the exact opposite from what you're saying.
As a player, you don't pay attention to the good thoughts - it's the bad ones you have to focus on. A couple minutes into it, I found myself completely ignoring anything positive, and struggling not to be overcome by the negative ones.
Other than that, great work!
TBH i think that was the point, the game tells you to focus on the good thoughts but the gameplay requires you to focus on bad thoughts so it makes the player think the good thoughts are the point, however this is a Silent hill demake meaning its going to be dark and sad.
You are right.I noticed that once I finished the game. Maybe playing the game will stress you more but at the end the message is that you need to get rid of the bad thoughts.
Focusing only on the positive might give the message that you should ignore bad thoughts, which is not at all how you should deal with them. Although I do agree, that focusing only on the negative is also not healthy.
