OMG this game gave me headaches :( Subscribe: https://goo.gl/g492qF GAME: https://alienmelon.itch.io/everything-is-going-to-be-ok Outro Music "Digital Hug" by Vexento: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dq8fJVxRrUY ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GAME DESCRIPTION (Itch.io): It is a collection of life experiences, commentary on struggle, and oddly enough my own version of a power-fantasy.

We teach people to be perpetual survivors. We live with pain, but no way of transcending it. I think a lot of this can be credited to how we view "strength". I don't think the icon, epitome, of strength should be how many people you can hurt, conquer, overcome, but how muc…
