"CardioCasino" is a small game about a slot machine that's tied to both your childhood and your heart -- from experiencing a stressful home life to being born in a well-off family, your slots decide what your childhood is like and what the physical consequences will be. try your hand at your slot machine and see where you end up!

roll 2 or more of a slot and you'll gain access to an interactive memory from your childhood, plus a memento.

maybe the mementos mean something; what would happen if you collected all 8?

music: "good night" by micco.

source code is here.

based off of research examining how negative psychosocial factors in childhood can lead to higher risks of cardiovascular disease later in life.
