Indygo Reviews

A very poignant game that will hopefully help people to speak out about their struggles, as well as showcase just how important storytelling is in games.

Indygo, while certainly nothing groundbreaking with mechanics, is a frightfully accurate portrayal of what happens in the mind of someone suffering from depression. The narrative is clearly more important than the game's mechanics, and that shows at times, but the combination of mechanics, dialogue choice and acting help to push the message about how devastating depression can be for an individual suffering from it.

Despite some missteps with its gameplay, Indygo is a deeply immersive, realistic, and nuanced depiction of depression.
