A downloadable Playtest Module

Tower of Smoke is a Souls-inspired 2D side-scroller that puts you on a perilous journey in a tower of battling mental health. By using coping mechanisms as temporary upgrades, they both improve and damage your performance in various ways, and it is up to you to take on this tower through fierce combat.

You have a health bar, a willpower bar and a numbness bar. Your coping mechanisms will impact your willpower and when it's empty you will not be able to use the coping mechanism.
