Depression Quest is a text-based adventure game that aims to offer insights into the plight of people suffering from severe clinical depression, a crippling disease that is often misunderstood by those lucky enough to be not be afflicted by it.

The game is available on the Steam platform and also works on web browsers. It opens with introductory words before jumping into a storyline filled with stark text and disturbing situational questions.

Players are presented with general life events which they must navigate using the options offered.

Depression Quest is available on a pay-what-you-can basis with no minimum fee, so you could play for free if you like. A portion of the game's profits is set to be donated to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline in the USA. Stats for Depressing Adventure Games Trending: Older & Warm
