3 MINUTE WALK: A Personal Simulation Game, where Pandemic Meets the Creator's Own Anguish
3 Minute Walk is a short psychological horror simulation game produced by serif_ and published on July 8th of this year. The game is purely based in a personal experience and basically portrays themes like anxiety, mental health and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic. The author's intention is to have you experience these themes on a journey from your apartment to your car in the parking lot outside the condominium.
In more technical terms, the game features a simple low-poly look, but very well done in a way. What we have here is basically a 3-minute walking simulator (hence the name of the game), with the function of experiencing the same sensations experienced by many people in a turbulent period like this one in which the world is going. So don't expect anything too active here, as you just move around with the WASD keys and look around with the mouse.
Despite being extremely short, the game presents an interesting and valid experience, which could be a little better worked, and can even extend to something like "a whole day", focusing on situations that the author could have gone through being in places like a supermarket, for example, as well as the return home and the events of the rest of the day. It would be an interesting idea to see the creator's point of view.
