The Light Within is a prototype created as part of an exploration into how video games can help mitigate symptoms of chosen mental health illnesses. You will need to guide the main character’s representation of their conscious mind inside a dreamy landscape as you try to reunite their conscious mind with their unconscious counterpart to begin a healing process to overcome their mental health illness.

Not all design features were able to be fully implemented in time but I hope it is still an enjoyable experience!
