ward 6 environment drawings

This may seem a little odd, but it's an example of one of the levels, in which the main character explores the mind of a patient who only communicates through abstract drawings in black ink. Her "world" is very 2-d, flat, and much like a really disturbing version of Harold and the Purple Crayon. The main character too appears differently in the levels, depending on how she is perceived or what role she is playing to help the patient.

These two images address the "sanity meter", seen upper left corner, which indicates both the state of sanity of the main character and also indicates to what degree the "real time" (as opposed to the in-the-minds-of-the-patients levels) world is distorted and nightmareish. There are a variety of scenes and story tidbits available depending on the level of sanity, insanity, and there are also ways to help or hinder yourself in that regard (opening a door that looks normal, picking up something that shouldn't be there, ect.)
