love the game!


i would love a game where you just get those "10 more fruits" for like an hour, cause this was enjoyable and i only got 1 fruit!


The relatability in this game is unreal


this is a really good game but I'm not going to lie the fact that i cant speed up what they were saying was a little frustrating, like omg why you talking so slow???

It was good fun though and i liked jumping around all the mushrooms and bits and i like the visuals, very bright and cool to look at :)

that i cant speed up what they were saying was a little frustrating

That was very much intentional and part of the experience 😄




What I liked about this game is that it really gave me a sense of resignation and lack of confidence, like "ok, what will happen this time?"

the changing locations is not 100% relatable, but my adhd is not severe (or at least I am medicated)

some of the notes things are kind of relatable though

speed-running this game is kinda fun though.

you can walk with the notes open by the way.


playing this again after over a year and its just as relatable as the first time, really nailed the adhd confusion

thanks ☺️


exactly !


yea, that's how it goes :(

 nice game i also have ad hd


Cat giving thumbs up : r/confusing_perspective


Hehe Relatable


you talked about it in the making of talk you linked in the description but I still want to ask what was the process of coming up with the game's mechanics that portray adhd? I really liked how simple but effective it was at making its point.

10/10 great game


There wasn't any process, I just wrote ideas down whenever, after a week or two there were enough ideas for a game


very charming little game, could relate to the dinosaur


This is way too accurate. 10/10 love it


i hate it(in a good/nice way)

On a parlé du jeu dans notre podcast #68 :)

Et, pour les fans du jeu, ce sweet shirt semble parfait


love how the dinosaur just wanders around when you talk to an NPC

The notes hit me soooo hard. Great game.


i was mad but also having fun, great game god job 


This is so incredibly frustrating and creative! I enjoyed hating it!


i feel bad for the dino TT


So original!! cheers!



this game is so me 90 outta 50 snowcarrots

me... starts playing... wait lets look at the comments first... oooh spoilers maybe? lets go back... starts playing. tries to pretend to ignore the fact that it says adhd, so then i can compare my life with it, gets distracted by that fact.

gets to that digit thingy, tries to press esc, pushed the button that makes the page go back. Now im writing this to say that wow. i got distracted by writing this.

didnt read this whole thing? neither did i, so i might have grammer problems.

either way, LOVE IT


this is why i get frustrated getting multiple tasks at once

for ex, someone asks me to get them water

completely forgets they ask, and when i do fill it, i give it to the other person beside them



this game literally just sums up how i feel sometimes: unorganized, bored, and overworked. a very nice experience, i give it 4.48 pineapples out of 5.


"why do you look tired, you've done practically nothing" :/

I'm not diagnosed with anything, just symptoms but either way i relate in a few ways. this game was good and lightly annoying but really fun to play


Loved the story, the graphics, and the representation!

I feel bad for the dinosaur though, and I can kinda relate ngl.

The poor dino really needs new friends that respect him or at least some rest :/

(Bruh why did this take 30 minutes to post smh I hate it when this happens >:( )


as a person with adhd wo got a 9/9 on the ad part i can say,

you got it super right with the forgetting and the walking wihle talking :I

also, make it easier to not get stuck.


This game is SO RELATABLE, I personally have ADD and this is exactly how I act and think in real life, very well done

i like this game but i have a smaller 80hd where i am hyper without caffeine


Okay so, the part when I opened the notes and saw that giant mess of stuff hit so hard, like... yeah. I felt that.


bro, me too ;_


They're just like me fr


Dude! this was so much I had a blast definitely a great game!


i dont know if i have adhd but i am autism 

You are autism? :0



I have ADHD myself; and this whole thing is 100% accurate lol. very nicely done!

Forgetting what you were gonna get while you're going to get it. I thought I was just stupid, but it IS my ADHD! Some things were a bit exaggerated, but fair enough, comedy is comedy. 10/10 game, based af ngl,

Shit what was I gonna do again? Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu


i have ADHD, but i dont think this is really close, but i see how it all gets together, the rage you get and how people say its so easy and stuff it's just so annoying but thats it. BTW it said "things i forgot about" and he said "can't you just remember that" i thought it was funny still cant beat that part though

you mean the notes? there is a note labelled "password" your meant to show the doorkeeper


and yes this isn't an educational tool to explain adhd or anything, just a way for me to express my feelings on the subject

oh alright


even if i dont have ADHD i can relate to the dino.
