Estimated play time: 15-20 minutes.
Please note that this game deals with depression, self-harm and suicidal ideation. Player discretion is advised.
Please Hold Me is an interactive friend that really needs you. Meet Olivier, a lonely man that is in dire need of a new friend. You will be able to talk with him about a variety of different topics and forge a meaningful bond with him.
Please Hold Me is a small experimental game about the true meaning of being empathetic. It was developed with the intent of rethinking how we interact with conversations in video games. The non-linear dialog systems does not work with the usual structure used in such systems and create unpredictable conversations for the player.
I'm pleased to announce my second small game: Please Hold Me.
Please Hold Me introduces you to Olivier, your new virtual best friend. He really needs a new friend, please be there for him.
I have uploaded my first Devlog talking about the process we've used to develop the game. You can watch it here (please note there's a slight jump scare in the video):
