“Wittle” presents both real and raw anecdotes from comedians who suffer from depression. Their stories are transformed into short animated stories and casual games that can be played for free on any device without downloading.
Brian shared a story about how negative self-talk made him feel dislocated from life. In his game, titled Drift, his head literally dislocates from his body and players must navigate it around life’s pitfalls.
“Wittle” creates awareness about the effect that depression has on those living with it. Depression is serious; our objective is to collaborate with comedians, artists and game developers to transport audiences/players into individual worlds that touch on how comedy helps people cope with their depression in an entertaining, engaging and informative way.
Wittle is currently in the Development phase.
The producers are collaborating with two comedians to transform their stories into short animations and quick to play casual games.
