“We are all human” – You..
(WARNING: This game has imagery that potentially can trigger seizures for players with photosensitive epilepsy)
One day your roommate Leaves for no reason. You’re left to face the outside world alone, but everything is difficult when you have a disability. Just because you have a disability, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy life. It just makes even the mundane parts of life, an experience.
"An Aspie Life" is an experimental adventure game that deals with the topic of Asperger's Syndrome. The game is centred around having to live with this disability. The player's actions in the game will have to adapt to how an autistic person sees the world. Every element of this game recreates how people with autism perceive the world. All forms of sound, graphics and interactions are intentional.
How it represents parts of Asperger's Syndrome.
There’s a lot going on in An Aspie life that is meant to make players feel like they are on the spectrum. It’s a little easier in a list:
An Aspie Life is now OUT! After a year and a half, we are finally here! An Aspie Life is now done… well mostly (still expect support and a bug fix every now and again).
Welcome to the thank yous!
Well, thank you iAwards, ACMI, Young ICT Explorers and the teachers of Mansfield State High School for all the help to get me to where we are Today. Thanks.
Also, thank you, the members of the indie game groups. Again thank you for helping with the development.
I’m not expecting An Aspie Life to be a break out success. It’s not meant to be that, it’s goal is to portray Asperger syndrome. So because people keep saying "thank you for making this game, It means a lot" Then I think it’s successful in its own way.
In term of failures. I’ve learnt a lot from this project. Mainly, work out the UI and controls before the graphics.
Well, where now… I’m going to take a break for a year or 2 while I focus on Uni. That being said I’m going to be still making games… smaller games, going to game jams and learning Unity. plus developing the next game’s story and art… a game set 300 or so years after An Aspie life… But tackles a Sci-Fi topic.
