Game File: 

Breakout as a metaphor for therapy.

Play through over *5* different therapy sessions with unique clients and their medically fascinating problems. Uncover their traumas from breaking down the "wall" of repression, but make sure to listen to what they have to say, unless you dig a little too deep...

Based on a parodic therapy site I made in high school which was hacked and taken over by a minor religious fundamentalist and the times I feel fed up with therapy. The satirical aim is diffuse and muddled.

Hahaha, that ending! I like the voice acting, how it's a brick and ball game that doesn't get bogged down by tasking the player to destroy every damn brick on screen, and how the game's therapy narrative supports a metaphorical reading of KNP's bouncing ball behavior getting stuck bouncing up and down.
