Critic Reviews for Actual Sunlight

Not a title for the faint-hearted or for anyone who may already be depressed. However, if you're looking for an experience that will yield an understanding of those who suffer from debilitating depression -- and that is a worthy goal -- then Actual Sunlight may be the right choice.

I get that this is more like an interactive story than an actual game. But I'd like some more interaction and less story. The reality of Evans's life is just a little too close to home for me, but this would be a good learning experience for someone trying to understand depression and other mental health issues.

Certainly not for everyone and absolutely not your typical game, Actual Sunlight provides a deeply emotional and occasionally difficult narrative to wade through on a dreary afternoon.

Actual Sunlight is a story worth experiencing, even if the format chosen to tell this tale is a little rough around the edges.
