‘Climb’ Won’t Take Much of Your Time, But It Might Stay in Your Thoughts All Day


I can’t say much about Climb for fear of spoiling a profound experience. It’s free. It’s a text game that’s as short as you choose to make it. It’s ultimately quite beautiful. You’ll see what I mean if you play it until it comes to a proper end.

Climb’s creator, Savannah Ferguson, recently wrote a powerful piece about The Cat Lady for Swine Magazine. As any discussion of The Cat Lady must, it includes the topic of suicide. If you’re interested in Ferguson’s thoughts on mental health when you finish playing Climb, this article might be a good next stop.
