Timothy Leary’s Mind Mirror

Timothy Leary’s Mind Mirror

I absolutely recommend anyone with even a slight interest in psychotherapy to try this game out, not because it’ll blow your mind or because Leary was some kind of genius, but because it’s a solid example of what I believe to be a therapy-oriented game.

Somewhere between interactive fiction and gestalt therapy (not mention the weird words and “archetypes”), this program is for all I have read basically a reproduction of Leary’s PhD thesis. It might well have been a facebook quiz if it was written two decades later! It’s not particularly avant-garde or exceptionally brilliant as far as I’m concerned, but it’s neat to play through.

Linda & Joan

Linda & Joan

Linda & Joan is a forthcoming narrative game about a British family. You play as Russell, Linda, and Joan — son, mother, and grandmother — switching between them to help the family cope with a series of traumatic events. Based on a true story.

The main game is scheduled for release in 2022. It will be part two of the Linda & Joan story. Part one is Prologue: “Four Months Earlier” which is available now.

Players experience the events from the perspectives of Russell, Linda, and Joan through exploration, conversation, and tasks designed to give emotional insight into the themes of caregiving, dying, bereavement, and homeland.

What sets Linda & Joan apart from other branching-narrative experiences is that while the player has many choices to make, nothing can change the core events that follow — there is only one ending.

However, actions, dialogue choices, and task completion, do affect the characters’ perception of events. By spending time with happier memories, taking care of themselves, and choosing the right things to say to each other, the characters — and therefore the player — will find themselves able to deal with the impossible.

The characters’ emotional states will be graphically represented in the game. The player will have to carefully balance the needs of the characters to progress, sometimes requiring difficult zero-sum tradeoffs.

These mechanisms attempt to mirror the real-life feeling of being powerless in the face of looming trauma, when you realize that no decision can affect the outcome, but you can affect how you and others feel about it.

Even when life’s story feels like it’s on rails, we still have some power over our own realities. There is still room for dignity, compassion, honesty. For fear and for love. There is a time for self-care. There is a time for duty. The choices we make will define the memories we hold for the rest of our lives.

Nott Longa

Such a unique narrative game, the closest thing I can compare it is something like ‘Doll’ by Braisque, it has that gloomy theme to it with philosophical vibes and many strange characters, but with a pretty unique story, something about the game world being a purgatory, a metaphor for being stuck in a nostalgia perhaps, unless maybe I missed the point. Sadly there seem to be a few translation issues, some intentional, some probably not, it’s hard to say because the game uses glitchy dialogue for the immersion. I was about to write a very positive review for this game, but then it softlocked near the end, and being a narrative game that nobody plays, I can’t even look it up, not to mention it leaves me without an important part to reflect on this experience (I liked the story, I still want to see the #$#$ ending though). I guess I could replay it, it’s not very long once you know all the answers to the tricky puzzles, about 2 to 3 hours with no hints, not that any were available when I needed them, but some of the puzzles were pretty creative, like you might have to do things outside of the game, cough cough. It’s one of those ‘cerebral’ games if you know what I mean, weird narrative, strange world, very atmospheric, maybe even experimental to some extent, it has a certain level of escapism which I really enjoy.

Absolute solid game for the bit i’ve played so far.

I’m going to continue to play more of it and keep updated.

I love the atmosphere and just everything about it.

It’s very unsettling. You go around doing quests for the people for those who have been sucked into the video game, which now is forever their norm day by day home since they can no longer escape from it, and eventually then turn to ghosts.

I can’t stress enough how wonderful this game is.

It’s like nothing i’ve played before.

Psychedelic and philosophical.
