I'm done with Depression!

My event download is up. Now I'm hoping there won't be any important bugs, spelling errors, missing files, etc. If you find anything, please report.

I had a lot of fun making this game. It's actually odd how I really like this game and enjoyed making it, but at the same time I feel like no one else is going to like it. I could be wrong. Hopefully I am!

This is not a game meant to be fun and enjoyable, though. It could have its fun moments, but that was no the point. What I tried with this game was to use traditional RPG elements as metaphors to what I believe are the components behind depression. It's a game to be played and experienced. It is a very experimental idea, probably riskier than anything else I've ever made.

Also worth noting, I enjoyed using RPG Maker VX Ace. I had use RPG Maker VX before, and it wasn't an enjoyable experience. But this version is so user friendly, so open to customization without being too complex. I'm definitely getting the full RPG Maker VX. That's goodbye RPG Maker 2003. I'll miss you... we had great times together!

I don't plan on changing this game after the contest, only if I need to fix any errors. I don't expect my download count to go wild either. But some feedback would be nice!
