On this grounded episode of the Whispers‘ podcast, Kyle and I talk about the portrayal of mental illness in horror games. Prepare for some heartfelt criticism of the genre for demonizing illnesses that still lack full understanding in society. We talk about our personal experiences, examples of poor representation, and resources those suffering can utilize (like Take This). The horror genre needs to get past asylums and “schizos”, right? Better games will come out of leaving those tropes behind.
