Bonbon: it’s not about the rat

Scary robot with red eyes in the dark.
Things are always scarier in the dark.

I thought one childhood was enough but, as an adult, I understand sometimes it’s worth voluntarily experiencing unpleasant things to explore new ideas and old feelings.

Bonbon seems like a monster at first, then a friend, then a threat. Then you realize it wasn’t Bonbon you needed to worry about all along. This game brought up some feelings I kind of knew went back a way, but the direct connection to childhood trauma was revealing in ways I don’t plan to explore out in public.

Bonbon is worth your $3 and 40 minutes.
