This is a game about growing up. This is a game about veering off the path – or what happens when the path doesn't make sense. About pain and suffering and how only one is optional. About taking care of yourself and chronic headaches and sick days and letting go a little bit even when every neuron in your brain is gripping with all its might.

It is a game about your inherent worthiness, your value, and your compassion for yourself.
