*IMPORTANT NOTE*

This game was a text-based story demo for a future game. That full game is now available here and on the app store for free. We would like to thank everyone for their feedback on this version and we encourage you to check out the full game But You Seem Fine!


Rae Kim is your average 14-year-old dweeb, but at the beginning of her freshman year in high school, she suddenly gets sick and doesn't know why. Follow her journey as she and her mom struggle to find out what's wrong.


Invisible illnesses, which we define as chronic illnesses that do not present any visible or outwardly identifiable symptoms, are underrepresented within media. In order to create this representation, tell more diverse stories, and raise awareness about the experience of invisible illness, we aim to create a video game following Rae’s story.

The text version is so good too!

Did you use twine for this? I recognize the layout from twine!

I CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE! I have never enjoyed story games, but I just couldn't stop playing this one...the story is tres magnifique (like what Sadie would say). The story was engaging, and more importantly relatable and understandable. It emotionally touched me. 

I was smiling like an idiot at the picture in the end. I'm conflicted whether the story should have more visual cues or not. The picture at the end had a profound effect because I didn't expect an image, and also having just one image brings about more emotions than having multiple visual cues throughout. So that's a tricky balance you'll have to figure out. 

All in all, sign me up for every other update, and every single thing you guys do, because this was just beautiful! Looking forward to the future! 

Thank you so much for your comment! We will be sure and let you know when there are updates.

It appears I am the first one to comment this demo. I really did enjoy it and cannot wait for future builds. I enjoyed the small, yet emotion stirring journey the story gave. It was short, yet very interesting to me.
I don't exactly know how much this game will change between builds, but I can only see things going up from here.
(I do hope that there are plans to add more visuals throughout the story in future builds, that way it's more attention grabbing for some people.)

Can't wait to see how this game grows, and I wish you the best of luck with the creation of this!

Thank you for playing! Our plan right now is to add more interaction and visuals are we move from a Twine game to a Unity game. Thank you so much for the feedback!
