Let’s Play Indie: Auti-Sim

by on April 4, 2013
 

It’s Autism Awareness month and we wanted to keep relevant and try to help spread awareness.

To that effect, this week’s Let’s Play Indie will focus on the free indie game, Auti-Sim.

If you’re interested in giving the game a try, head on over to gamejolt.com.

Please keep in mind that this game can be very uncomfortable to play and, as a quick heads up, you may want to mind the volume of your speakers. But it is a wholly unique idea, that we’ve not seen before. It may actually be slightly upsetting to some viewers/players, but it’s a very interesting game.

Don’t forget, you can grab all of our video content direct to your iOS device if you subscribe via iTunes.

    This is fascinating…if a little upsetting.

    My wife is in the children social services, I’m going to tread lightly when I show her this. I may not even tell her what I’m showing her, and just let Ben’s audio explain it.

    Her first job out of college was at a private school for mentally challenged kids. She was responsible for a 16 year old autistic child. He beat her up every day. Scratches, bruises, bites. She last a couple of years, and went onto what she’s doing now. Eleven years later, and we can still see some of the scars from that time.

    I’ll let you guys know what she says.

    Please, please do! That would be interesting. My wife used to have a similar job, now she works with adults instead. Her job used to break my heart, every time I saw the kids.

    Yeah, when I played it the sound just got louder, it was like everyone was screaming at me. Was uncomfortable, horrible, and…yeah, affecting.

    As a sister of someone with autism, I’m glad you reviewed this game. It was actually scary watching the game play. It’s horrible thinking that that’s how my brother feels in those situations.

    I know. It was so unnerving.
