About

“We are all human” – You.. (WARNING: This game has imagery that potentially can trigger seizures for players with photosensitive epilepsy) About One day your roommate Leaves for no reason. You’re left to face the outside world alone, but everything is difficult when you have a disability. Just because you have a disability, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy life. It just makes even the mundane parts of life, an experience. "An Aspie Life" is an experimental adventure game that deals with the topic of Asperger's Syndrome. The game is centred around having to live with this disability. The players actions in the game will have to adapt to how an autistic person sees the world. Every element of this game recreates how people with autism perceive the world. All forms of sound, graphics and interactions are intentional. How it represents parts of Asperger's Syndrome. There’s a lot going on in An Aspie life that is meant to make players feel like they are on the spectrum. It’s a little easier in a list: All character in An Aspie Life are black outlines. By doing this, players can’t read body language. Just like with someone with autism. Some characters that the main character knows well, are not black outlines and have some detail. But they are still darkened. This represents how some with autism can learn someone’s body language if they have known them for a long time. In the game every environmental sound gets represented on the sound sensitivity meter. The player must keep this under control, so the main character does not become overwhelmed. This represents Sound sensitivity in autism. In conversations, the player again can’t read body language, as they are all black outlines. But they must try and figure out how to respond with limited vocabulary. This represents the difficulty Aspies have in putting thoughts into sentences that people can understand. Also in conversations, the player’s feeling meters of stress, happiness, courage and uneasiness will affect how a conversation plays out. For example, not much courage means you can’t look at the other person. To regenerate the feeling meter, players must go into quiet places or do things that the main character enjoys. That being, playing video games. The game’s art style of blue and purple, represent not just the 80/90s feel of the game but also social isolation. Some items in the game that hold great importance to the main character are not in blue/purple but are in full colour, because of how important they are.

Early Access Review Bad game. You Don't understand what you're doing. The part of the hike keeping the button seems to do nothing and really annoys you. Dialogues are certainly the worst part. You Can Write but do not understand anything except for "OK" "yes" and "no". For that not implement a system like that. Stats don't seem to make it clear what to do to raise or lower Them. I Don't recommend it to anyone under any circumstances. A waste of time.

An Aspie Life-adventure game with a very unique storyline, the fact that we have to play a guy suffering from autism. It is Also worth highlighting that the game is completely free and you can play if you want everyone. Although The game has a visually pixel look, and the gameplay is to move right-left with the interaction with objects and people, it is very reliable. Yes, one of the main features is that the developer has made the game, regardless on his personal experience, on what he experiences in life. To some extent, he shows his life, as well as wants to convey to everyone that two people are two visions of the world. According to the story, the roommate of the main character suddenly leaves without even warning us. And here we, the person who is not used to do everything himself, remain alone with himself, with a list of cases for each day and a clear schedule. We need to gain strength and cope with all the difficulties, because you are unique, you are not like everyone else. And here is our first day, a simple task-to buy products and return home for a certain time. What could be simpler? Maybe It's just, but not for our hero, constantly be on the street does not turn out, from the noise you have wild headaches. And Here comes one of the most interesting aspects of the game, the study, of course you will go to various buildings to catch your breath so to speak, and all of them are unique, they have something to look at, they are filled with secrets and references, also be able to conduct dialogues with People who, in turn, will increase or decrease your characteristics, such as happiness or irritation. But don't think it's hardcore survival, No. This is the life of a man who like all teenagers loved to play video games, by the way, you will have the opportunity, you can play and home on the console, and the Game club. You will meet a girl who fall in love and want to achieve. The Game will show the main thing that is not like everything-it is not necessarily bad. The Main thing to prove it to yourself. A Unique adventure from a developer who shared his personal experience, gave a piece of himself. In Other games you will not meet such a plot, and the main way as the author presented it. Remember, each of us is unique and everyone sees life differently.
