Ascomycota is an interactive fiction game that aims to emulate the experience of having an eating disorder and how that can make one feel as though they're trapped on one path, with one set outcome and no exit in sight. You begin in a hospital, being told you're dying, and throughout the majority of the game slip in and out of memories from the past that give insight into your downward spiral. However, all is not so bad, as if you make the choices that open up discussion and the opportunity to accept love, as well as really explore the world, you may just find your way out of the destructive cycle and into the true, happy ending. Two Endings.
