Today: A Game About the First Day of the Rest of Your Life
Everyday someone in your city, your town, is on the edge. You can’t always tell by looking them over, but if you look into their eyes, their souls, you can see that something inside them is in danger of breaking. Pain is a part of the human condition; no one can avoid it. But sometimes the Pain becomes overwhelming, it consumes everything that is good, blots out the sun, and threatens to swallow your entire life. Sometimes this overwhelming Pain is fresh and fiery like a fever or an open wound, other times it’s an old festering sore that is slick with the pus of curdled memories. It doesn?t matter, one day will come when the Pain is brought to a head. On that day, your ability to Fight, to stand strong in the face of your Pain, determines whether you live or die. Of course, the physical death may not come quickly, but the spiritual one will be immediate ? there will be no more Fight in you, you will be only an empty shell drowned in Pain. A Pain that will only be extinguished in death.
Today might seem like any other day, but today is the day you face your Pain. Maybe it’s a choice you made, or maybe it’s a series of rude coincidences ? either way, today you Fight or give in, break down or break through. A part of you already knows which way it’s gonna turn out; it?s been written in your eyes for a long, long time.
