Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Cost of Recovery is a narrative adventure where you play as four different people, one of whom has a stroke. How this impacts each of them is experienced first-hand. Can they all get through this together or will everything start to fall apart?

You play Abigail, Noah, Hailey, and Liam and explore the world with puzzle-solving, talking to other characters and small contextual games that reflect their emotional and mental state.

It creates a mature, personal, and nuanced story that digs into our internal conflicts when life falls apart.
