The Jigsaw Puzzle of Suffering

Suffering is the mind attempting to solve a jigsaw puzzle that has no pieces.

I like that one.

Someone write that down.

Why is this in a games forum (instead of the one on silly things people say whose name escapes me)? Are you planning to do a game on suffering like the game on that problem, Depression Quest?

What would a game about suffering be about? Trying to stop it or making more people feel worse?

I can think of one. An enemy has bombs that give off a gas that causes suicidal depression so you have to fire rockets at them lest their missiles get through and cause massive depression in our cities. Sort of like that game where someone was throwing nukes at your citis and you had to shoot them down before they MIRVed and became too many incomings to stop.
