A downloadable game for Windows

A short narrative game created for CareJam 2021! Play as a caretaker balancing social life, caretaking, and self care. This may be a difficult story for some, as it shows the struggle, and how things do not always pan out.

Content Warnings: Sad ending, loss of friends, pill bottles shown, alcohol shown.

Our game was made to evoke the emotions and show the struggles caregivers face. While the ending is dark, both in game and here, we have links to resources if you are a caregiver in need of help:
