A Psychiatric Story

an interactive novel on survival in the psych system

Pay What You Can (or play for free!)

Inpatient is the culmination of over a year of writing, editing, and coding in the game engine Twine. This work included many long days, late nights, and more coffee than I'd care to admit. It also involved dealing with flashbacks and reliving my trauma.

This game will always be free for those who can't afford to pay, but if you can pay - especially if you're a mental health professional or academic who finds this helpful - please consider chipping in.

Thank you for supporting the project.

Saving Your Game

Your progress will automatically be saved to your browser's storage. That means that if you close the page while a game is in progress, it will remember where you left off the next time you play.

While this works reasonably well, there are a few quirks.

  • Your save data does not transfer between devices. If you start a game on your laptop, you cannot continue the same game on your tablet or phone. Start playing on the device you want to use.
  • If you clear your browser history or cache, you may lose your save data. Be careful!
