Hikikomori's Journey wants to show you how it feels from a hikikomori's point of view.

Fears take shape..

This is a point and click narrative videogame that will make you understand (We hope at least a little bit) how and why you become a hikikomori through the relationship the protagonist have with the few people he comes into contact with.

The issue of bullying that afflicts many young people is also discussed in this experience.

During the dialogues in the game you will be called to make choices that will reveal different facets of the characters. In this game you will not be able to save, because the experience takes about 30 to 60 minutes.

What's it based on?

This video game is based on studies, books and experiences available online. This game is intended to be an help to understand the phenomenon and should not be ignored.

great jobs. ciao


Thank you SO MUCH for making this game!! It is a heartbreaking but very important message! Unfortunately the final part of the game glitched and kept switching from English to Italian but I managed to translate it so I saw the final screen. Really great work!!

I'm really glad you liked my game. I uploaded the game build again because I solved (at least I hope) the translation problem in the final scenes, thanks for reporting it.

BEL GIOCO, costruito bene e la storia fa molto pensare; ti fa capire come si sentono queste persone e il rapporto che hanno con i genitori. COMPLIMENTI.

Ti ringrazio.
