When the Darkness comes is a walking simulator whose tale tries to illustrate the hardships of depression and anxiety. Taking around an hour on the first play-through, "When The Darkness Comes" feels like you’re wandering around a glitchy hard drive full of abstract dreams and beautiful nightmares. The narrator initially makes it feel like a comedic game, but it soon starts to take a darker tone as you travel down the bizarre broken rabbit hole that explores the darkest themes of the human mind. The second and third playthroughs change slightly depending on your choices, ultimately leading to different endings.
