Incel Syndrome is a freeware video game. It's available in early access starting Spring 2021. The full version of the game is set to be released in Summer 2021.


Through it's narrative, Incel Syndrome explores misogynist currents within contemporary internet-culture. It contrasts them against the theories of Otto Weininger, a young Austrian philosopher who tragically ended his life in 1903, shortly after completing a 500-page treatise on male-female relations.


Incel Syndrome is an interactive visual novel. The player is able to freely explore two timelines. The PRESENT, which documents Sam's current interactions and activities. And the PAST, a manifesto-style account of his life until the present day. At the end of the game both timelines converge in an unprecedented display of phantasmagoric apotheosis.
