Pathos is a short and dark interactive story from the developers of gnop and Chaos Invaders. The game follows a boy who ignores his mother, and continue to play on his computer after hours.

Created in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 19 but only just now released, it appears that you're leading the boy to safety at first, yet it soon becomes apparent that you're not supposed to be his saviour. The stop-start nature of the dialogue can be rather annoying, and I'll not entirely sure I understand the moral, but perhaps you will get more out of it than I did.
