Background

From January to June of 2018, I worked on an honors thesis project through UC Davis’ design department. The goal of the project was to create a number of autobiographical games about my experiences being mentally ill, to explore media representation and how such work might be therapeutic to the creator, in a manner akin to art therapy and journaling.

What is it?

Escort Yourself Out is an escort-mission-style game in which you (playing as me) escort your younger self through triggering situations. The game also features a handful of reflctive text-based scenes, in which I discuss my reasons for making the game, and my frustrations during the development process. All illustrations for the game were made using Illustrator. You can download the game for free here.
