  • No "Game Over" screen, only alternate endings that tie into your choices.
  • A soundtrack that has been tailor-made for this experience.
  • Relationships that can be developed or broken.
  • Game length varies depending on your choices, ranging from 1-3 hours with enough content that you can come back and explore different parts of the narrative in consequent playthroughs.
  • As in real life, all of your choices are immediately saved. There is only one save.
A note from the developerPlease Knock on My Door has been in development since autumn 2014 and was initially supposed to be a 6 month exploration of my own experiences with depression. A word of caution; this is a game that might be difficult to play for those who have dealt with psycological issues such as depression and anxiety. That said, I truly believe that through entertainment we are able to understand topics that would otherwise be too foreign for us. I hope this game can help you better understand what it can be like to live with these issues, like it has already helped me.

Please Knock on My Door reviews and comments

Please Knock on My Door is a short game with little gameplay. But those who are interested in narrative games or more Instropectivos or who have suffered or lived close to depression, I highly recommend. It Shows an emotional and real way to a person trapped in a routine and in their problems and fears. It catches You immediately and, if it has any purpose, this is to create catharsis.

An interesting recreation of what it is to live with a condition like depression and social anxiety. It is Not a game for everyone but if you have ever suffered from a similar condition you will feel identified, while relieved by the message that the game gives. If you have never suffered from any of these ailments but want to empathize with people who do, I think the game does a great job.

"Please Knock on My Door" is a depression simulator, as well as direct. The developers put us in the skin of a male suffering from this disease (yes, depression is a disease and increasingly frequent, by the way) and has difficulty facing a life instrascendente and anodyne. The aim of this study from Sweden is no other than to understand a person who is going through such a difficult time, and manages to perfectly recreate many of the situations that, although for an emotionally stable person would be extremely Easy, for someone who is in the middle of a depression, they crave life difficulties. Insomnia, loneliness, anxiety, negativity, hopelessness, lack of motivation, loss of appetite or fatigue are some of the symptoms that the protagonist will suffer during this short journey (since the game is not very long). And Now you're going to ask yourself, "Why would I buy a video game that simulates a guy who's torn apart by a depressive process?" Well, from my point of view, it's good to know the sensations of this experience. The day May come when you have to help a loved one who is depressed or you can experience the disease yourself, so it is never more to learn about this subject to realize how bad we see someone who is sunk during to Do the day. Detecting in time and making sure that a person is in this state is the first step in initiating a recovery that normally takes its process, needs certain tools and takes quite a while. It's Not exactly a game, so don't expect mecáncas that require some skill. You Simply live the day to day: you get up in the morning, you make breakfast, you go to work, you hold the boss, you go home, you play or you chat in front of the computer, you go to bed... It May not sound very interesting, but what is really important is to realize what comments the protagonist performs and how he faces his own life when he is totally devastated. Please Knock on My Door May serve to help treat depression, so I recommend buying it when it can be useful for our own real life.
