Actual Sunlight is a short interactive story about love, depression and the corporation. The game puts you in the role of Evan Winter, a young professional in Toronto, as he moves through three distinct periods of his life. The story is linear, unavoidable and (hopefully) thought-provoking. You experience his perceptions, fall under the consequences of his decisions, and meet everyone who didn't change him. Gameplay is minimal, and serves only to move from one part of the (admittedly) text-heavy story to the next. The game fiercely attempts to be worth it.

Thanks, Butterblade!

To answer your question, an in-development version of the game was free to download for several months. Now that the game is finished, however, that version is no longer available.

Please consider supporting me, however, if you enjoyed that version! Thanks!

Thanks for the comments thus far, guys!

Cyrax, the game is probably about an hour or so. Depends if you do everything and how fast a reader you are. I'd say take your time with it...!

When most people play a game, they get a few hours of entertainment out of it. They save the princess, or shoot the bad guys, or level up their warrior. What I got out of Actual Sunlight wasn't entertainment, or a thrill ride. Instead, I found a reason to live. This game is about the thoughts of a depressed and suicidal man. I've struggled with depression for years, and I've thought about taking my own life countless times. When I played this game, I saw a reflection of myself in the main character…
