(Downfall deserves a quick blurb from me. To put it simply, if this game is the reason I didn’t quit doing art. At the time of it’s release, I hated my art and was full of stress over the future. Playing and experiencing this game gave me hope and made me believe art was truly worth pursuing)

I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream
