An Interactive Exploration into Alzheimer's Disease
A Project By: Christian Hughes, Dylan George, & Katie Kristiansen
Falling Up is an interactive story game designed to raise awareness and empathy for sufferers of Alzheimer's Disease.
Falling Up was originally developed by the KSU Anthropology Department. We have improved upon the original version, and added support for many different platforms.

Falling Up tells the story of an elderly man (Floyd) living in the Meadowlark Hills Retirement Community. For years, he has lived with Alzheimer's disease. He relies on the instructions of his wife to perform even the most basic of tasks, and has forgotten much of his past. The player takes the role of this man (Floyd) as he explores Meadowlark Hills, and rediscovers forgotten memories.
Traverse the halls of Meadowlark Hills in search of forgotten memories. Interact with objects in the environment to reveal details of your past.
