A year ago I got to illustrate one of the endings in Ryan North’s brilliant Hamlet choose-your-own-path book To Be or Not To Be. These are all things you may be able to find outside right now (if you can bear to put down this amazing book).
I found a creepy game entitled The Nightmare Maze. It’s found on the same site as Alter Ego.
You play as a man with horrifying, confusing nightmares. However, they do have a meaning. You choose your path and actions as you traipse through a tormented subconscious. A choice can raise or lower your stats. You can play as many times as you like, but the ending will only be revealed if your insight reaches 100.
(EDIT: friend pointed out that I should say it’s completely jumpscare free)
Throughout your life, you will be presented with many opportunities. It is important to know that not every opportunity is YOUR opportunity. Be wise and choose your path. It’s a prerequisite to happiness to be content with your decisions. And someday, someone may follow that path you paved. Be an inspiration towards greatness and happiness.
