Anchors is the result of a decade of self examination and processing of a very real period of my life where I was passively suicidal. This project is me coming to terms with those feelings and finally expressing them in a constructive way. 

Obvious content warnings for themes of suicide and suicide ideation.

Thank you for creating this thought-provoking game and having the courage to speak out about it. I was in a similar situation too last year during the pandemic. There are so many people who are or was in the same boat who may not be able to voice their experiences and feelings but this game gives them a voice and raises awareness about this issue. 

I'm proud of you for hanging on through the storm and I'm proud of you for being here. You are an amazing person, you deserve all the love and support you need and you matter. I hope you're doing well and wish you all the best in life.

Keep on going, take care and remember to look after yourself <3

This made me cry at the end when i realized what i was walking to i looked behind me in the game and back to it and i said awww and put my hand over my mouth and cried and as i tapped it and saw the words and read it i was like wow i got on pills when the thoughts grew so big that i was not afraid that the thought actually made me happy that  despite having people here the pain so great that no pain than what youre feeling now can hurt than going.

I hope your doing better now.

Damn, hope you are feeling better. Impactful stuff, especially considering it’s a true story. You did a great job at marrying mechanics to story and the entire thing gave me Edith Finch vibes.

Short but good atmospheric and psychological game

Thank you for sharing your story and being brave enough to express your experiences in a creative way. I hope things are better on your side. 10/10
