OverviewOverview

Adventures With Anxiety is a mini-adventure where you play, as a red dog who is the inner protective voice of a young person. Your role is to guard them against danger, although as you do you cause them anxiety in different ways.

You can play it right in any web browser on any device. It follows the narrative of the young person as they navigate a day at school, parties and other social settings. Play is light touch as you choose different ways to interact with them. These interactions come in the form of battles where you try and wear them down enough to "win" the round.

Each chapter has two different endings based on your choices and calls back to themes you have highlighted as the narrative develops. It's a simple experience that shares what it's like to suffer from anxiety as well as some of the games we play in our heads.

It's an unusual way to engage in the topic of anxiety for older teenagers, and creates a context for nuanced self-reflection and conversations on the topic. The developer created some additional resources to support the game as well.
