A very poignant game that will hopefully help people to speak out about their struggles, as well as showcase just how important storytelling is in games.

5/5

To say I enjoyed my time with Indygo doesn’t feel the right way to describe things, but I came away feeling that it was a respectful and carefully crafted game that tries to portray one man’s particular reaction to depression and, by way of the gameplay, ends up teaching the player about certain things that aren’t helpful when someone is depressed. It’s not very long, not very cheerful (obviously), but if you have any interest in depression, as a sufferer or an “outsider”, you might want to take a look at Indygo.

  • Deep, melancholy atmosphere thanks to high quality handmade art and originally composed soundtrack.
  • Intriguing story evolving at every subtle, seemingly trivial decision.
  • Engaging narrative with multiple endings depending on the decisions made by the player.
  • Unique, ever-changing room which reacts to the mental state of the main character.

Indygo is a narrative game with point ‘n’ click elements set in one room only – a painting workshop.

Indygo tells the story of a painter who suffers from depression. One of the symptoms is proceeding isolation. The main character hasn’t left his room for more than 3 months. The person who helps him live through this hard time is his girlfriend Anna. It became obvious for both of them, that this situation can’t last forever. The time has come to look for a solution. It’s up to the player to decide how the story will progress.

The main topic of the game is depression and isolation. Indygo attempts to illustrate what people affected by mood disorders may experience. The game counteracts the stigmatization of those people. During the game, you will see the world through the eyes of the main character. Many puzzles await to be solved and many letters await to be read. The painter’s journal gives us detailed information about his mental state and thoughts. Inquisitives will be able to find additional hints binding the story together.

Handmade graphic and music are important elements that add depth to story. The room changes accordingly to the mental state of a character. The game has multiple endings. How the story ends depends on the seemingly trivial decisions made by the player during the
