A new retro-style, turn-based RPG has released on Steam recently, titled Max, an Autistic Journey. Developed by one man, St├ęphane Cantin, this game is designed to put the player in the perspective of a 10 year old whom is diagnosed with autism, based on his son in real life. The game focuses on Max’s journey as he fights monsters that are personifications of his fears and anxieties of the world around him.

The game features a turn-based retro-style battle system featuring weapons and abilities, mini-games including picture puzzles as well as Steam Achievements, Cloud Saves and Trading Cards.

The publisher of the title emphasises that although autism is a spectrum and there are many different perspectives that those on the spectrum have, this game focuses on Max and and his perspective of life and autism.

Also worth noting is that a portion of the money earned from the sales of this game will go to the Miriam Foundation, an organsiation that helps those with autism spectrum disorders and other intellectual disabilities lead independent lives.
