This week’s featured Indie Freebie is 2D platformer I’m Alright. I can’t really explain why, but I was drawn to this game by its curious name and cover art while perusing the catalogue on Game Jolt. But I’m glad I checked it out, because it’s a genuinely intriguing creation.
The game commences with you, an unknown female protagonist, awakening in some kind of hospital or clinic. It’s light and colourful, the sun is pouring through the windows, the birds are chirping happily outside, the music is pleasantly relaxing. But as you attempt to further explore your surroundings, you’re suddenly plunged into a sinister alternate reality. You reawake in the same place, but there’s a very different vibe. Now it’s darker and your character is panting audibly; everything is dilapidated and in ruin, even your own garments are in tatters.
