A downloadable temper tantrum

Buy Now$7.50 USD or more

This is a game about throwing a temper tantrum, or multiple temper tantrums, and what that feels like. It is a reflection on the fact that a temper tantrum is both involuntary and calculated - that it feels like a series of moves you can take, none of which are the right answer.

This game is by an anonymous ex-problem child. It has been published with the kid's permission by Possum Creek Games, with the help of Jay Dragon.

I love your work, and this is no exception. This actually helped me a lot with sorting through my feelings and why I'm feeling X way. Having a list of actions and being able to feel understood through that made me realise a tantrum is just allowing oneself to feel. And it sounds like an obvious thing but I just realised it now. Thank you for making this! The design looks very neat as well.

Thanks! I will say I didn't write this one – one of my campers did, and I published on their behalf. It's a really powerful and impactful work though, and one of my favorite lyric games.
