Discover a world filled with loneliness, anxiety, fear and depression.
When the Darkness comes is a free-to-play indie game made and published by Sirhaian. Discover a world filled with loneliness and fear. A world where despair breathes and hope dies. A world about you, about us. A world about humanity and about life. It is a walking simulator whose glitchy and dark tale tries to illustrate the hardships of depression and anxiety through a variety of imaginary digital landscapes. A clock, a piano and a girl. What do they all mean? What is meaning, anyway? What has meaning? Do you have one? A path, a goal, something determined, pre-determined? A light to follow?

When the Darkness comes Review
When the Darkness comes is an existentialism simulator. It’s a remarkable experience that’s full of breathtaking imagery and interesting surprises. This game does an amazing job of turning this philosophical concept into an experiential reality in a virtual world. It is really hard to put into words exactly what the game is, but if you have ever dealt with, or experienced depression or anxiety, the hopelessness of life sometimes, then please play this game. A beautiful and bizarre collection of contemplative digital dreamscapes. The level design differs, and even the gameplay within is variable, some puzzles require thinking, others platforming and others reaction time, for a free game I was very impressed. I recommend playing this to those who are suffering from depression and nearly having suicidal thoughts. This might change your outlook in life.
