This is not a horror game. No... It is accurate simulation of schizophrenia based on empirical data gathered by psychologist and psychiatrists.
My goal was to create an accurate atmosphere and perception of reality of schizophrenic. During the game you will come through all symptoms of progressively aggressive schizophrenia: anxiety, paranoia, nightmares, delusions, amnesia, sound and visual hallucinations.

Schizophrenia may have different symptoms. This game recreate rare schizophrenia with almost all possible symptoms to show the whole problem of the disease. 
Of course, comparing to the real schizophrenia all simulations are poor representation.

I personally suffer from shizophrenia the game showcases the symptons correcting just not completely accurate but its still really good

As much as I wanted to try this experience, I simply could not get this working on Quest via Oculus Link. It makes me sad that a lot of these older experiences are going to have compatibility issues with newer headsets as the technology changes.

Great game and very effective. I agree it's impossible to duplicate it perfectly but you did a good job in creating a game that's both fun to play and gets the point across. I had an extended conversation with someone last year who suffered, and it was a surreal dialogue. Thanks for creating!

This game was amazing, scary and with a deep story. We don’t suffer on this illness but we can imagine how stressful this can be. Nice work! 

I can only get about a minute into the game and then it closes completely, I have no idea what's happening, help pls


Would love to see a linux release for this one to see how accurate it looks but it's probably unlikely. Either way it seems like a cool project.

This game was very stress inducing. Good job!! 10/10 would reccomend to anyone interested in phsyology based games.

So...I loved it. If it's accurate, then my god I hope to never have schizophrenia. Anyways it isn't a horror game but by god does it make you uneasy. Anyways here's the video, give a sub or a like or something I dunno. Good game and hope to see more from ya!

 i played this game in my channel on youtube, i'm from brasil and i liked so much how is angusting to play and how is terryfying

and, what is the code of the safe? kkkkk

What's the music in this game?


i get scared easily... i want to know if the game is scary... someone please help lol


It is scary, but it's not too bad. Although it takes a bit for me to get scared, this one gave me a few lil spoops

The game is a little scary but and it might give some nightmares if they get easily scared but in general this game is great

It scared the crap out of me lol

This was quite an experience, the game has some interesting designs, and I love the blur effect in the maze that makes it appear something is around every corner.

It keeps crashing for me, does anyone know how to stop the issue? It lets me play for about a minute, the furthest it let me get was the stairs.


Since I have Schizophrenia, thought I would review this game on how accurate it is! (I also played the game :D)

creepy af... love it


I have done one Schizophrenia Simulation before, but it was solely audio based and it lasted about an hour and a half. I learned a lot from it, but based on this simulation, I would say I am more empathetic and know more about this now than I ever have. This was marvelously constructed and it's very nice to see something so serious being taken serious, and being talked about in a serious light. I recorded my experience of this simulation, but I would highly suggest experiencing this yourself before watching any video on it at all.


This game is a really intense simulation. I felt fear and sadness when playing it, things I've never felt before with another game.

I'm diagnosed schizophrenic so I decided to check it out. Even though every schizophrenic has a different experience, it is a very accurate representation of the illness and I'm glad I was medicated and stable before playing.

I got sooooo lost in that maze I thought I was never going to get out. Really good game though, very unsettling.


I downloaded the game but there's no app for it. just a .rar file and it doesn't do anything. any help?


you have to unzip the rar file into a folder and it will give you the .exe

ooooooh ok


I've been trying everything and it doesn't give me an option to unzip the rar file :/


download rinrar and make sure you have it set to unzip .rar files in the settings then open up the file and extract it and it should wourk


that worked! thanks for the help

I wish if I could support you awesome game

I think I saw vr-related stuff in the game folder (openvr).. Does that mean there's a way to .. erm.. experience it with, say, oculus rift?

(I'm actually scared of the thought :'D)

Oh, you even made a drug simulator. Let's see now.

It was a good simulator, never had schizophrenia, but it has done a great job to show what it feels like. The camera field of view, random locations, not being able to sleep and be at rest was just amazingly interesting. It was all dynamic and smoothly made, not being weird just for the sake of being weird, i actually think it was all well crafted.

I enjoyed playing it, really fun game


I'd like to ask @ChappyPine for some more information regarding this simulation, could you please suggest a platform for me to contact you on? Many Thanks - Eddie

It was an impressive game.

That felt very specific, random and story-based...like it's a game, not so much a simulation...but that was cool

An amazing simulation, although it isn't very clear what to do or where to go sometimes to progress.

Very creepy indeed.

When I click the .exe file it shows UE4 crashing and it doesent let me play...

I can't say we understood it but it was an experience :P

I played this a while ago and it really helped me understand how bad schizophrenia is for someone suffering from it. This game put me in their shoes and it did not feel good. Thanks for bringing more awareness to this topic!

It was REALLLYYYY laggy for me :(. I don't know how to fix this.

Unfortunately the game is poorly optimized for middle range computers. There is a few mistakes in code. Sorry.
