The whole idea for this project was to find out the effect of gaming in relationships to show in a comic format. I wanted to draw awareness of these issues of effects such as obesity, anxiety, depression and lack of real friends. There are many gamers who also experience a demand for companionship when playing games (Colwell & Payne, 2000) There is research found that there is positive as well as a number of negative effect from (overindulgent) gaming on interpersonal relationships, this project is focusing on the negative effects in games within a relationship.
