A dark, sad, funny, weird 1st person exploration game in which you play as a man obsessed with the meaning behind a painting. More of a story game in that it emphasizes mood and character over gameplay. Features 3D computer graphics in hundreds of colors (blue and pink to name a few). Contains explicit handling of suicide, so be warned. There is also a shrimp tank with pet shrimp.

Download for windows, mac, or linux and play with the lights off and headphones on.

Takes about ten minutes to play. It's free, but donate if you like it to support future games! Also follow me on twitter at @jessebarksdale to hear about new things I'm working on.

THIS JUST IN ===> 'the static speaks my name' posters, t-shirts, mugs, and pillows are now available for purchase. Makes the perfect gift for that girl or guy you're crushing on. Check out the store here: thewhalehusband.storenvy.com
