A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
In Differentiate, you play as November, a young woman sorting through trauma on her path to discovering she's an autistic person.
During her journey, November meets Mana, who's learning more about their D.I.D., as well as Johannah, another autistic person. Together, they face their Inner Demons...
- Turn-based Battles: face off against foes with magic, equipment, and consumable items;
- Meaningful Choices: determine equipment and bonuses prior to challenging your Inner Demons;
- Video-enhanced Research: learn more about the autism spectrum condition while unlocking videos of November's interests.
DEMO CREATED FOR THE Autistica Play Jam!
We were inspired by the theme "hidden in plain sight," since the developer wasn't diagnosed with autism until her 30s. Mental health and trauma-related issues are explored throughout the story.
Due to the sensitive nature of the game's content, please be mindful of the trigger warnings provided on the title screen, including suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, trauma, and bullying.
THANKS FOR PLAYING
Made in RPG Maker MV with plug-ins and assets—including the pack we released for Asset Jam #6—we hope you learn more about neurodivergence through our 30-minute demo!
