This interactive thing is based on a vignette by 72Kilos.

Made in a couple of days by Ludipe.

It's endless and there's no goal.

Once dialogues start repeating you've seen it all.

Love it

I love it. I've been trying to translate psychological phenomenons into games recently and this piece does that brilliantly. Inspiring. Thanks. :)

I gotta say, this is an amazing game. I've been wanting to create games with meaning in them/moral of the story, but nothing seems to work at all. Then I found this game and became good at typing perseverance whilst understanding it. Thank you :). You made me continue on.

Hi there! I'm really happy you liked this game.

This is really cool! Is there even a end?

(+1)

Glad you enjoyed it!
The game has no end. I thought it didn't really make sense given the theme.
As the description says: "Once dialogues start repeating you've seen it all"

Oh ok I didn't see that.

If you want to see them climb the stairs faster download 'Auto Hot key', and save ".ahk" file with the following script. Press "0". :)

----------------------------------------

Numpad0::
 {
    Send, perseverance
    Send, {Enter}
    Return
 }

I've felt like this while making video games, until I reached a point where I couldn't keep going up anymore, I gave up. Now I'm standing on the stairs, trying to decide if it's a good idea to keep going up, or if it's better to go down. Also sometimes constancy is not enough, you need to choose the right stairs.

Just make whatever feels good to you and remember that there's no shame in stopping something if you need to.

Really nice !

I really wanted to see if this had an end, so I wrote a Python script to fast forward ^^

Also, it made me think about Turbo Media comics : https://www.catsuka.com/turbomedia/

Hah—same, but JavaScript (so it works in the browser version): https://gist.github.com/jsejcksn/c0e75bf6c772e016560757b29f7f3792

Check the comments at the top for how to use it.

I think it's amazing you both made this.

Perseverance!

awesome graphics ^^

Perseverance is such an annoying word to type which made the game a lot more thoughtful. This is such a good game- it made me feel good and motivated. It was also thoughtful and I loved the back-and-forth dialogue.

Thanks! Happy to hear you liked it :-D

this is really great, sort of feels adjacent to getting over it but with a different mode ~

It's great! A moment stuck with me. I got really used to write 'constancia' (I played in spanish) and started writing it really fast and mechanically. At some point I stopped advancing and had to think about what was failing. One of my hands was misplaced on the keyboard and I had to take a moment to put back to it where it should be.


I don't know, it just spoke to me.

Amazing job Ludipe. I would suggest sharing it in Reddit's /r/getMotivated 

(+1)

Thanks! I don't have tons of experience on reddit, I tried sharing it there but it got removed right away.

(+1)

it's marvellous!

Wonderful. It's like Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" meeting Camus' "The Myth of Sisyphus".
