I made All The Dead Bones a couple of years back. It's a candid, honest autobiographical account of growing up with a disability which also went hand in hand with a very visible deformity.

Many years after the condition was first diagnosed, I was able to have corrective surgery. This changed things, but not always in the ways you'd expect.

This is a deeply personal, extremely open piece of non-fiction from someone who normally prefers to disguise autobiography through allegory.

I've remade it slightly for 2016, including a new introduction and epilogue, and further details on the reality of my situation.

My aim with this game is to simply let people experience what I went through, in a safe and comfortable format.

I can't decide if I like it or not.

Wow. That was.....awesome. I think the piece you wrote is something that will be different for every person that plays it. We will all take away something different depending on our own experiences. It resonated with me because I too deal with some of the same issues. 3 years ago after dealing with terrible back pain most of my life was diagnosed with lumbar spine stenosis which has left me unable to stand up or walk without he support of equipment. 

At the same exact time I was hospitalized  with a severe case of hypothyroidism which hadn't been caught and left me in a coma. I'm somewhat better now, but still suffer the effects of it all and most likely always will. I'm no longer the person I was, but I AM the person I am now if that makes any sense lol.

Anyways, I really dug your game and hope to see more from you. And I hope life finds you well Ms. White. You deserve it.
