Happy Place

Your rating: None Average: 3.1 (10 votes)

In this intriguing platformer, you control a boy, who for some reasons has problems coping with the real world. So with your teddy bear in your hand you go to your Happy Place, where the problems are REAL problems - monsters chasing you! If the monsters get too close, you can let Teddy go and return to the real world - but not for long, as the problems here are greater than any monster! Time your actions wisely, and maybe the Happy Place can be your home forever!
