    "We need to talk..." Those words shattered everything, ruined everything. Alone with your darkest thoughts, you find yourself in a waking nightmare. The world is broken, fragmented, and your memories inescapable horrors. Sinister whispers bombard you, the world nearly impossible to navigate, and creatures move in the shadows. As a voice you thought long buried goads you, a simple light shines. A glimmer. Hope. In Passing is a first-person 3D platformer set within the confines of a broken mind. Undertake a harrowing journey of recovery, tackling the relentless throws of toxic thought as you make your way back through fragmented memories. Jump, dash, and race through a mind intent on destroying you, pushing against the insidiousness of depression. Duck out of the way of turrets, vault over chasms, run along walls, and re-assemble the shattered pillar of self at the center of the maelstrom of melancholy swirling around you. Featuring striking visuals, a gripping tale of a broken mind, challenging platforming, and a beautiful soundtrack from Lucas King, In Passing challenges players mechanically and mentally. With care and poise, even the most broken mind can be healed.

    Dog Days of Fall
    Date updated: 2021-01-26 Category: Miscellaneous

    Ten years after humanity was mysteriously transformed into human-dog hybrids, society has collapsed. Buildings are falling apart, and the systems of the human world are largely lost thanks to a decade without thumbs. Following such a devastating change, society has largely given way to a network of warring city-states. Outside of the city confines, some people have given in to their new feral instincts, becoming more dog than human. These so-called "Wilds" are savage, predatory beings, completely lost to bestial savagery. Leila, an accomplished martial artist and aspiring veterinarian before the fall, has found work for herself as a security guard of sorts. Making her rounds one night, Leila finds an impossibility -- a human girl. Realizing the danger a human would be in not just from the Wilds, but from the dystopian government that has risen in the wake of mankind's fall as well, Leila takes the child in, determined to protect her.
