On September 7th, we’ll finally get to play Please Knock On My Door. This exploration of life with depression has been on our radar since early last year. It began as a personal story of the mental health experiences of its creator, Michael Levall, and has since grown into what seems to be a broader game of choice, relationships and mental health issues.
Today, the game has the ambitious goal of creating empathy for those issues:
Please Knock on My Door is a story-driven game which gives you control over a person suffering from depression and social anxiety. Help them get through work and reach out to friends while desperately trying to survive. Experience the frailty these themes bring and gain a better understanding of what it’s like to live with some of the most common mental health issues today.
