She Remembered Caterpillars is a game about handling grief. Not solely, and not aggressively, but through the player's work in helping tiny, adorable forest creatures find their way through these twisting maps of caterpillars and fungus, they share in a story of loss, confusion, sorrow, and death.
People handle grief in different ways at different times. Some want to get away from it. Others seek to confront it or feel guilty about turning away from it. Dealing with it requires many things at once, and Creator Daniel Goffin and writer Cassandra Khaw worked to create an experience that would help in multiple ways.
Whether through escaping to a world of cute creatures who need help with puzzles, or by embracing the story and sharing in the pain of someone else who has suffered, She Remembered Caterpillars is a game that can help soothe the sorrow of loss.
