Denial is an interactive story in which you lead Lucas through his camping trip. Meeting Arith, a weird man inside the woods, it is your decisions that decide what will happen.

At best, you will have a nice trip. At worst, it will be your last day on earth.

And if you watch your words, you might actually come to accept the things you refused to acknowledge. And finally set things right again.

Denial is a short game (10-20 minutes, depending on your reading speed) that has a number of branching paths. Explore the different possibilities to find out other things and maybe the single right path to the true happy ending. Hints and walkthrough are included under "What is Denial" in case you need help.

If you find any bugs or are having trouble, feel free to talk to me :)

I'm actually really enjoying this game so far! I found the concepts introduced interesting- what mysteries could there possibly be on this guy's camping trip? What's with all these strange, tense tips to keep in mind in the hints?  How will "denial" play into all of this?

I was surprised when I died the first time around, incredibly early into the game.  It really set the mood for the rest of the experience. I was actually scared of Arith and put a lot of thought into the choices I had to make, taking my previous mistakes into account. Things were unpredictable.

There isn't much gameplay with visual novels, but in this one, you made sure that the player's choices were the main source of tension and replayability. I'll definitely be searching for the best ending!

Thank you for your comment! I'm happy that you like it so far :) The good/real ending is rather hard to find on your own, so I hope you'll find the ending and conclusion worth it :D
