    Here is an interesting idea, I was wondering if they would help anyone? I figured this might be an approach people can relate to more.

    I think this is definetely a good idea, even if they are not perfect. Anything that makes it more visible and helps people understand is important. I started playing depression quest and it seems to get a lot of things right. However it made me a bit sad when playing it as even the computer game had a partner and i dont :(

    but the truth is this game is meant NOT for people who have depression, but the people who are trying to help those with depression. So be careful if you have depression and want to use these games as it might be triggering. Very good idea for the family and friends tho.
