You Will (Not) Remain

You Will (Not) Remain was made in just 48 hours for the Women Game Jam 2021, and is a 2D narrative game that takes place in an abandoned apartment complex. Haunted by their previous mistakes and growing loneliness, the player must navigate a strange world that isn’t all that it seems. A world that makes them question their reality while the city outside succumbs to a nameless terror.

“Stay inside. Stay safe. Don’t let anyone in.” That’s what they told you to do, and now you’re alone. You’ve been alone for a while, well… except for Lambshank, the strangest dog you’ve ever seen. Taking on the role of an unknown person stuck in an apartment building with a horrific purple presence looming in the distance. How long have you been here? Weeks? Years? Each day blurs into the next, time-stretching between the world before, and the world now. You try not to think about the creature in the distance, the whispers in the walls. You ignore the ghostly glow it bathes the city in, violet spreading through every inch of the sky. Is any of this real? Does any of this mean something? You’re not sure if you want to know the answer.

You Will (Not) Remain felt like a dark game that really delves into mental health; the anxiety, depression, and sometimes suicidal ideology. Whilst the game has dark tones, it displayed these issues in a creative way and left you wondering what could possibly be going on in this world. Is the world a representation of how intense mental illness can get for many or are we really in an apocalyptic scenario?

Please Note: The game has a content warning due to its dark nature and associated feelings, which may be a trigger or risk to some players. We urge players to consider their vulnerability before playing.

GamesAid Mental Health Jam

GamesAid Mental Health Jam is launching 17th February 2020,  all aimed at driving awareness and helping support people with mental health problems.

In the last couple of years, awareness of mental health has been increased. However, there’s still lots of work to do. In the workplace, mental health illnesses still not recognized the same as physical illnesses and the talk is still difficult for many people. With this game jam, the teams want to keep the conversation and encourage games around this important topic. Which we think is fantastic!

Anyone can enter the Game Jam and there is no specific theme; it’s all just to raise awareness and help those who struggle with mental health problems! If you don’t wish to join the Game Jam that you can still help by spreading awareness of its existence with the hashtag #GamesAidMHJam.
If you wish to get involved you can do so HERE.
