Nula: Butterflies Rise is a decision-making game that explores the experience of living with anxiety.
Inspired by puzzle adventure games of the early 90s like Myst, the surreal comedy of Flann O'Brien, and the author's experience of living with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Nula creates an immersive textual experience, an insight into the daily struggle anxiety can be.
You look down at the floor, strewn with the remnants of ancient ready meals, wrappers, dirty clothes, tissues.
As Nula scans across them, half visible faces appear accompanied by dissonant sounds, half heard conversations, but never enough to completely understand.
There are some islands of clear floor amid the mess.
