Relapse: The Story

This game reflects the mental state of a human being, which is being developed through life. The challenge for the player is to keep the mental state positive so his lifespan will be the longest and experienced to the fullest. This is reflected by the player’s score. The player’s score is based on the combination of choices made.


As a player you are controlling a memory of someone’s life. This memory starts at the birth of the player and progresses along the lifespan of the memory. The game ends when the player dies. During the lifespan the player learns to differentiate between good and bad. This is visualised through objects, people and choices. Every choice the player makes creates an impact on his mental state.
