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 return to the corner, and there's nothing there. Nula gets out the car and looks closely along the length of the pavement for a shape, a body, maybe some blood splatter, something.
She walks up and down for 10 minutes or so. The comfort raises slightly, but butterflies remain high and the tolerance bar shrinks, she drives back to the house.
