TESTIMONIALS

Bipolar is a unique experience that helps the player better understand the frustrations and hardships of living a life dealing with Bipolar disorder. The deckbuilding mechanic helps highlight some of these frustrations because you are starting the game with a hand full of triggers that, if left unchecked, could lead to greater problems. Knowing that there were things I wanted to do in the game but was unable to achieve until I had worked on my problems was a great simulation of feeling burdened and unable to control my situation. Bipolar is a great simulation and education on what somebody with Bipolar disorder might experience and a theme I haven’t seen represented better in any other game.
