World Autism Awareness Day giveaway (a little over) 24 hours only [Ended]

Next week it is World Autism Awareness Day 2018 Monday 2 April

What is autism?

Therefore I want to giveaway 5 copies of this nice little game, where you can learn about autism. Its a fun game to play even if you do know enough about autism The game has a really nice dev. I asked him if the game could go on sale, and he put it on sale right away for this week because of the Autism Awareness day

Some may already have this games because it has been in a bundle, therefore I’m giving away 5 copies of the dlc also

Many people who have autism love gaming, like me :slight_smile:
I have Asperger.
For me there are a lot of pro and cons to having autism
One of the pros is having a good memory
One of the cons is the Sensory overload like in this link:

Yoshirules, you are a legend, and If I could give you a mega-super-uber-likety-thanks then I would. In fact maybe we should have a Gifter type user title, because you’d certainly deserve it.
Autism is very misunderstood and anything that can raise awareness is definitely something worth supporting. I’m not entering because backlog, but I just wanted to say thank you.

God damn @yoshirules, there aren’t even words in the english dictionary(or any other for that matter) to express your amazing-ness. :sunglasses:
You have the bravery to share something really personal on a forum you haven’t been on in more than a month.
Even with the stigma there are around autism in gaming.
You know? I’ll just get it out there. I have autism too.
Not to the extent you have, if it’s anything like that video you linked.
Thank you @yoshirules for giving me the courage. :sparkling_heart: :sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart:
Ohh. Yeah. I guess i’ll enter for the main game.
Kinda obligated to at least give it a try.

Good you say it in the open, because its nothing to be ashamed off
I dont have it always like in the video’s but I do use meds before going into a store. Its because of all the noises and crowds I get overwhelmed.
Also when I have a busy day I get overwhelmed pretty easily
But when I am at home, I am just like everyone else.
Most people with autism do have difficulties with social interactions, I dont for me social interactions arent scary/difficult at all

I’m currently enrolled in Psychology at a great university here in Brazil. Ever since I met one of my nowadays best friends, Asperger and autism in general have been great points of interest in my studies. I feel that, even among Psychologists, facts can be riddled with misconceptions and half-truths when it comes to autism (and I reached that conclusion merely from experience, not literature).

As I talked in length with one of my teachers, the whole idea of an “autism spectrum” seems awkward when we take out the far edges of it and compare them. It feels like a lazy attempt to clutter together completely different experiences, and although I understand how useful it can be to brand one big phenomena the same, it can also be harmful to the individuals enclosed in that seemingly arbitrary space, especially when calling someone “autistic” has been widely used as a form of name-calling rather than clinical diagnosis.

It doesn’t matter who I ask for more information regarding autism – and trust me, I’ve asked some pretty renowned professionals – the answers always seem to come out slightly muddled and some times even arbitrary.

I wonder if that isn’t the bane of human condition, if all other mental phenomena studied in psychology and psychiatry are stated in such shifting terms and I only noticed that negligence with autism because I’m paying close attention to it, and even if the best we can do is just try to make do with the quicksand we’re slowly drowning into, lest we rewrite every mental health book that ever existed or abandon them all in the Bermuda Triangle and never look back.

Aaaaaanyway.

Enough contemplation on my part I guess. I’ll shut up now.

I’d like to enter. Yup. For the main game.

Thanks for another splendid giveaway, @yoshirules. You’re my spirit animal. :yellow_heart:

kinda agree with you, autism and asperger now both exist on the same spectrum (they always be) instead of individual diagnosis… on the positive note it might help ppl to actually come into sense about what autism and asperger is, downside is the unique trait for each own might become clouded since you’re more likely clump them as one instead of separate them as different diagnosis

and yes “autistic” term is widely degraded to some extend as name calling which is pretty concerning especially for the “aspie” since they don’t face (not always) the same harsh treatment as autistic ppl might actually lead to more problem

as for facts misconception and truth, that might actually come from the base of psychology itself, every case is unique you hardly met ppl that show exactly same symptoms with the same treatment, like cooking same ammount of ingredients don’t always lead to same edible food, there is way too many factor to count for
