theasylum.gifJohnBThe Asylum: Psychiatric Clinic for Abused Cuddly Toys finally has another cute little patient to treat: Dub the Turtle. Just like the previous toys, Dub has a problem and can't be his normal cuddly self. It seems something happened to him with his previous owner, and now the poor turtle can't stop exercising!

Using your masterful skills as a psychiatrist, work your way down the checklist of therapies and get to the root of Dub's problem. Dream analysis, an interview with a sock puppet, musicotherapy and more are all at your disposal, and each one reveals a little more about the toy's history and current mental state. Can you help Dub take a chill pill and stop skipping rope?

JayJay - If you have never played this game you are in for a real treat, as there are now 5 animals to cure and each with its own engaging story to tell through nicely animated cut scenes. The Asylum delivers one of the most emotionally moving interactive narrative experiences I have ever encountered in a Flash game. And it still remains one of my all-time favorites to this day.

Play The Asylum

Cheers to thecritic and moo for sending this one in!

I love this game!
It's got such cute characters and is really original
I like finding out each ones different story
Kroko is my favourite ^^ I'm gonna buy him

WALKTHROUGH
(please try really hard and use professional assistance to help you out before reading spoilers)

Kroko:

Give him a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and he'll get out of his box

Use ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS to calm him down a bit

Then DREAM ANALYSIS(I usually do to first but i couldn't this time

He's still nerous so he needs MOTIVATION TRAINING

Use MUSICOTHERAPY and he'll get a flute

Try DREAM ANALYSIS again...He lost his flute ;_;

Now DESENSIATION to cure his fear of water

Now MUSICOTHERAPY to get another flute

Nearly done, just DREAM ANAYLYSIS again so he gets his hot water bottle and he's cured!

Lilo:

Use DREAM ANALYSIS to see what he's thinking about

Then ring the CRISIS LINE

Then use PLAY THERAPY and give him a gameboy (he looks like my little brother when hes playing his gameboy lol)

DREAM ANALYSIS again (if it's not the bit with the big equation do it twice)

Give his a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Now for some MUSICOTHERAPY

Use PLAY THERAPY and he'll have a flashback, (how can he fit all that stuff inside him!) then

Use CRISIS LINE so he can phone home.Yay he's cured!(Let's just hope no one else needs the phone for a while)

Sly:

Let's see what he's thinking with DREAM ANALYSIS

Now for ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS

Let's try some MOTIVATIONAL TRAINING...does anyone else find this one a bit strange?

Let's see how he feels after that, more DREAM ANALYSIS ahh lots of tails!

use MUSICOTHERAPY and give his a rattle

Then use the THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and DREAM ANALYSIS until he has the flashback where he's thrown out of the car

Then you can use the SURGERY option to fix his tail. Cured!

Dolly:

Firstly DREAM ANALYSIS

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW...

Another DREAM ANALYSIS (I don't know why Lilo's theres with a sock on his nose :P)

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Then she does some knitting in OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY and makes a nose sock

Then DREAM ANALYSIS (Lilo in the background again) and then Dolly's inner wolf breaks out (She's one of those reversible plush animals)

Then use ADMINISTRTION OF DRUGS so she'll stop panicking

Then use DREAM ANALYSIS and she'll have a flashback, and finally

use TRIGGER STIMULUS so she can put her nose sock on the dog and make friends with her inner wolf

Dub:

First use DREAM ANALYSIS

Then use MOTIVATION TRAINING

Next take away his stopwatch with CONFISCATION so he isn't distracted

Then DREAM ANALYSIS again and he'll retreat into his shell

Then look under the bed and click(If you can't find it click PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE)and electrocute him slightly until he comes out (thanks Channy)I don't really like this bit :(

Then use EXERCICE THERAPY yay a balloon!

DREAM ANALYSIS again...

EXERCICE THERAPY...and then he'll start to cry for a while, and you'll have to wait a bit. Then wait until there are no tissues left in the box

and finally use DREAM ANALYSIS.How cute is that? Cured and finished ;)

STORIES

Kroko:

He used to be a hot-water bottle cover, but his owner took away his bottle and used him as a mop cover, which was the cause for his hydrophobia. The pattern on the lady's dress looked like eyes so he was afraid of the eyes.

Lilo:

His owner used his zip mouth to keep her things in, and she hid the answers to a test in his mouth, but the teacher found out and took away the answers so Lilo feels he has to work out the puzzle himself

Sly:

His owners used his tail to keep drugs in, but they saw a police car behind them so they threw him out the window. His rattle got run over so his rattle broke and the drugs got crushed and made him go crazy

Dolly:

Her owner used her as a chew toy for her dog which made her have a fear of dogs, and also a fear of her wolf side. She's afraid of letting her wolf side get out, but she's sometimes confused between her sheep self and her wolf self (hence the barking and howling when she's still a sheep)

Dub:

When his owner was at the airport on one of those escalator things she dropped him and he couldn't catch up with her. A health club owner picked him up and turned his shell inside out because it had a racing stripe on it. Dub is obsessed with training now because he's afraid of being left behind if he's not fast enough.

Once again, the soulful story of a lost/abused stuffed animal makes for an interactive tearjerker. It hit home especially hard for me, as I nearly lost a favorite plush toy in a similar fashion to Dub. His treatment includes one element of timing, as well as another which made it look as if I went wrong somewhere. However, that's the only complaint I could find.

With everyone else, you have to resort to electroshock therapy if you screw up somehow. Here, it's necessary at one point. It made me think I missed something until I reluctantly did it.

I'm stuck.

He's out of his shell, and he remembers being left behind, and now he's sitting on his shell, crying his eyes out. I've done EVERYTHING and nothing is working. The help book says that he needs time and a way to express himself that is integrative instead of suppressive. What am I missing?

It seems kind of silly, but one of my favorite parts of The Asylum is piecing together the story of what caused each patient's condition. This review kind of blew that for me right off the bat. Would it be possible to alter it to prevent that from happening to others?

I know a lot of work goes into these reviews, and I feel bad complaining, but a spoiler is a spoiler...

This patient is really different from the others.

It made me feel really bad for him.

Warning: spoiler about plot

I got stuck, but by then I had figured out what the problem was. At first he seemed homesick with the paintings of home, the flashbacks, and later the dream analysis. But then it seems more than a case of very bad homesickness, he basically got lost and I guess was wandering. Then found a new owner (maybe?), then fell into a state of really bad depression as I could tell that he was very depressed about it.

Ok, is anyone else awful at this game? Every time I play, I lose. With the turtle, apparently I analyzed his dream "too early" after confiscating his things, and now he is immutably retreated into his shell. I don't understand why I lose with every, single, animal.

You're not doing anything wrong at all, actually. You're not out of options.
The game is also nice enough to literally point you in the right direction...

On another note:

In regards to Gar's reply (3rd from top): I've never had to resort to electroshock therapy with the other patients. In fact, I didn't even know that option was there until Dub came up.

you are not doing anything wrong. when the progress bar turns red, you have to hit reset -- it's a thing underneath the bed. they didn't make that obvious enough... it took me awhile to figure out it was there.

awww, that one was so sad!! That is pretty much how I think of any lost inanimate object :'( That secret under the bed though.... so hard for me to do! This one was definitely the hardest, both logically and emotionally.

This game is certainly one of the best produced, right up there with Samorost.

Actually, Nic, if you do something deleterious(as I found out once with Lilo), you have to resort to electroshock to get the patient out of their "Red zone". Since I never had to run electricity through any of the plush toys before, I thought I must have done something wrong.

If you seek Professional Assistance - which usually helps give an idea of how to approach the current situation - it points out that something is under the bed, thanks to the little illustration in one corner.

The next part is filled with spoilers so don't click if yu want to figure things out yourself.

Alright, there are several points on Dub where you may feel like you've done something wrong/missing something obvious.
1)

This is the only time when electroshock is actually necessary for the treatment. When he get's into the red simply give him a shock and you'll be able to continue

2)

When he gets depressed just give him time. When he runs out of tissues he'll be ready to continue his therapy.

(based on the posts above it sounds like you can speed this process by ending the session and then starting it again. don't worry your progress is automatically saved)

Also, the review has spoiled nothing about the plot. This is all said in the book under "help". You get a patient history (and a clue as where to begin your therapy) at the beginning of each session.

Okies, I have for all you lovely peoples a Dub walkthrough of sorts.

First, just give Dubbie the old motivational training, then take his little stopwatch. Next, try the Dream analysis thingie. He'll pull into his shell and start to lay very very still. Don't worry, you didn't kill him! I thought I did until I got a hint. Then you zap the poor little guy. I feel so bad doing it! But it gets him out. Mouse over the side of the bed on the left, and the bedspread will lift up to reveal what looks like the earpieces of a stethoscope. Click on it. Then just go with what happens. It makes me sad that in order to help the little guy, you have to zap the crap outta him. Then give some dream analysis, maybe some paint therapy. Eventually, he'll start to cry. You don't have to end the session, just wait. Eventually he'll use up the tissues. Then give him a dream analysis when all the tissues are gone. And he's cured!

This is my first time posting a walkthrough, and I know it's vague, but here it is! Thank you EMDF, by the way. I stole a bit of your ideas... But since I admitted to stealing them and I gave you credit, don't get mad at me! And thanks to Charmander as well, for revealing where electroshock is!

Not only do you gradually discover what went wrong with each patient, you also discover the special talent (read:function) of each one. That generally has something to do with their situation. That makes the patients feel less like stuffed animals and more like living, thinking creatures (albeit ones stuffed with fluff).

Someone should thank that lazy Dr. Kinderman, for introducing his theories and his clinic, then taking off for an extended "conference" and leaving us to handle the new inmates. I'm just glad I could help them, all during my breaks between classes.

I did it, but there's a thing I don't understand.
Can people explain it to me? (contains spoilers)

Apparently, Dub got lost in an airport, found another owner, and he is constantly training because he feels it is his fault that he could not catch up with the girl (first owner). But why did he turn his shell inside out? That was the manifestation of his problem. Why did he do that, it seems illogical...

Werevixen, here's how I took the ending:

His shell had the racing stripe on it because it's like workout clothing; he's constantly in training to try and catch up with his owner. Once Dub makes peace with his owner during dream therapy (after using up the tissues), he no longer feels like he constantly needs to train to prove anything, so he reverts back to his non-workout shell, freeing himself from his guilt-ridden workouts.

I agree that this is a great game/interactive story. I didn't find it too difficult to "solve" the other toys' problems, as I only ran into one situation where the therapy (not shock therapy) caused a bad ending.

I'm hiding this just to be safe, but it'll help with all the "Dub's regressed" problems:

After subjecting him to that scary allegorical dream, it scared him so much that he withdrew from the outside world. He actually needed pain to force him to cope with reality. (I'd have preferred a means other than electricity, especially with its "you screwed up" connotations in the game)
Once you've shocked him out of his shell, why would you go right back to that nightmare? You haven't progressed any further, so that same dream will have the same effect. There are other ways to help him that are available at that point. Try things that might calm him down, or show him that things aren't hopeless.

I have finally signed up, I felt it was time since I constantly use your site, Jay!

I LOVED The Asylum animals... they are not only adorable, but also very intriguing characters.

The only criticism I would have is that you cannot save the game progress (as far as I know?), you have to leave it running overnight or until you next come on the computer, which wastes energy.

But I am just being a bit picky, really.

For once, I did not use spoilers at all until I got Dub stuck in his shell-- I had no idea such a violent therapy was available! But I think the game is more about finding things out, and having a go rather than "finishing the game" or "winning".

It's just nice when you know you have helped them.

I think this is particularly emphasised when:

Sly the Snake hugs and kisses the sock puppet as a thank you!

I know that wasnt much of a spoiler, but I didn't want to ruin it for anyone!!

This is definitely one of the best games out there! I just replayed all five patients after several months. Last time I muddled through, thinking of the the "professional help" as a last resort source of hints. This time I read them each time, and I enjoyed it even more than the first time. I love the writing and subtle hints, as well as the psychobabble.

Die Anstalt is such an amazing game; I sent it to all my psychiatrist friends and they love it. How much am I really learning about therapy? Not sure. Why do I have such a soft spot in my heart for these crisis-stricken stuffed animals? I'm sure it has something to do with my childhood. Saying goodnight to each one so they all felt special was a moral dilemma when I was six or so... Anyway, I hope they all feel better after all this healing activity. One thing is sure, there will always be some need for this kind of, how do you say, gestalt? If any of them are looking for a good home or respite destination, they can come to my house, for sure.

I lovethe way Dub walks (crawls) on all four legs after he talks to the sock puppet thingy and he crawls off the bed to try to pull it. I cannot get it to load; when it finally gets to the next page of avaliable therapy actions, it just says loading in a bubble when I click on it!!! It is SO frusterating! It's been doing that for a long time, since the first time I saw there was a new plushie patient (which was like, three weeks or more ago).

So... when you finally cure all 5 patients, there's no closing cinematic? No reward for finishing it all? You just get the empty waiting room and go outside to talk to the nurse?

Well, granted, the five patients each have their own ending and the journey is really the reward, but I was at least expecting some acknowledgement that you beat the game.

I am amazed by this game. Never have I been this happy about finishing a flash game. I also left a comment in the guest book (Dr. Matthew Robson Leadbitter) which should get you thinking. If not, then you didn't get well enough into this game. Retake the exam, earn your psychiatry degree then play the game. You'll then see the depth of each of the patients. Overall, it was very carefully produced, well thought out and a great concept. Score: 9/10. Anyway, I'd better be getting to bed, it's late and I'm starting to sway here. Later. *yawn*

Just wanted to ask if anything special happens if you cure all five patients? I was playing earlier today and it took forever to cure Sly and Lilo. I closed it to get some homework done and I want to play again but I don't want to try to cure them again. Is it safe to assume that nothing really happens when all the cuddly toys are saved?

no, carmini. in previous posts people have been discussing that, but, finishing the game myself, i say that there is no final scene. The ending scene(s) are the ones you get every time you cure a patient completely

and for your closing problem, my walkthrough might help you.

This game was VERY FUN. 9/10. Hard, and I needed a walkthrough, but it was fun.

Although, its strange how there is no ending, ya know? No...Ending movie....And stuff. I also laughed when in Dolly's dream where Lilo had a sock on his mouth. Then he just bumbled into the woods.

It was still very fun.

I love this game!
It's got such cute characters and is really original
I like finding out each ones different story
Kroko is my favourite ^^ I'm gonna buy him

WALKTHROUGH
(please try really hard and use professional assistance to help you out before reading spoilers)

Kroko:

Give him a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and he'll get out of his box

Use ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS to calm him down a bit

Then DREAM ANALYSIS(I usually do to first but i couldn't this time

He's still nerous so he needs MOTIVATION TRAINING

Use MUSICOTHERAPY and he'll get a flute

Try DREAM ANALYSIS again...He lost his flute ;_;

Now DESENSIATION to cure his fear of water

Now MUSICOTHERAPY to get another flute

Nearly done, just DREAM ANAYLYSIS again so he gets his hot water bottle and he's cured!

Lilo:

Use DREAM ANALYSIS to see what he's thinking about

Then ring the CRISIS LINE

Then use PLAY THERAPY and give him a gameboy (he looks like my little brother when hes playing his gameboy lol)

DREAM ANALYSIS again (if it's not the bit with the big equation do it twice)

Give his a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Now for some MUSICOTHERAPY

Use PLAY THERAPY and he'll have a flashback, (how can he fit all that stuff inside him!) then

Use CRISIS LINE so he can phone home.Yay he's cured!(Let's just hope no one else needs the phone for a while)

Sly:

Let's see what he's thinking with DREAM ANALYSIS

Now for ADMINISTRATION OF DRUGS

Let's try some MOTIVATIONAL TRAINING...does anyone else find this one a bit strange?

Let's see how he feels after that, more DREAM ANALYSIS ahh lots of tails!

use MUSICOTHERAPY and give his a rattle

Then use the THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW and DREAM ANALYSIS until he has the flashback where he's thrown out of the car

Then you can use the SURGERY option to fix his tail. Cured!

Dolly:

Firstly DREAM ANALYSIS

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW...

Another DREAM ANALYSIS (I don't know why Lilo's theres with a sock on his nose :P)

Then a THERAPUTIC INTERVIEW

Then she does some knitting in OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY and makes a nose sock

Then DREAM ANALYSIS (Lilo in the background again) and then Dolly's inner wolf breaks out (She's one of those reversible plush animals)

Then use ADMINISTRTION OF DRUGS so she'll stop panicking

Then use DREAM ANALYSIS and she'll have a flashback, and finally

use TRIGGER STIMULUS so she can put her nose sock on the dog and make friends with her inner wolf

Dub:

First use DREAM ANALYSIS

Then use MOTIVATION TRAINING

Next take away his stopwatch with CONFISCATION so he isn't distracted

Then DREAM ANALYSIS again and he'll retreat into his shell

Then look under the bed and click(If you can't find it click PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE)and electrocute him slightly until he comes out (thanks Channy)I don't really like this bit :(

Then use EXERCICE THERAPY yay a balloon!

DREAM ANALYSIS again...

EXERCICE THERAPY...and then he'll start to cry for a while, and you'll have to wait a bit. Then wait until there are no tissues left in the box

and finally use DREAM ANALYSIS.How cute is that? Cured and finished ;)

STORIES

Kroko:

He used to be a hot-water bottle cover, but his owner took away his bottle and used him as a mop cover, which was the cause for his hydrophobia. The pattern on the lady's dress looked like eyes so he was afraid of the eyes.

Lilo:

His owner used his zip mouth to keep her things in, and she hid the answers to a test in his mouth, but the teacher found out and took away the answers so Lilo feels he has to work out the puzzle himself

Sly:

His owners used his tail to keep drugs in, but they saw a police car behind them so they threw him out the window. His rattle got run over so his rattle broke and the drugs got crushed and made him go crazy

Dolly:

Her owner used her as a chew toy for her dog which made her have a fear of dogs, and also a fear of her wolf side. She's afraid of letting her wolf side get out, but she's sometimes confused between her sheep self and her wolf self (hence the barking and howling when she's still a sheep)

Dub:

When his owner was at the airport on one of those escalator things she dropped him and he couldn't catch up with her. A health club owner picked him up and turned his shell inside out because it had a racing stripe on it. Dub is obsessed with training now because he's afraid of being left behind if he's not fast enough.

Dolly didn't fit a wolf in her belly, she's a reversible stuffed animal: you unzip the belly and turn it inside out. I think the way she was dealt with was one of the most interesting (even if the trauma was telegraphed pretty early on) ways of integrating the psychological aspects with the toy aspects. Very clever.

This is manifested in all of the actual plush toys (i.e. they each have some of "special feature) and usually has something to do with their problems. Only Dolly struck me as particularly clever though.

Note about Lilo:

After giving him the game boy, use Dream Analysis QUICKLY, while he's still playing Tetris, before he turns it off and takes the Gameboy cartridge out of the Gameboy. If you trigger the Dream Analysis while he's still trying to get the cartridge back in the Gameboy, you'll get a different dream and have to do Play Therapy again, before trying again.

From this point I can click the menu and go back to one of the other screens and everything else works fine. What am i doing wrong??? :,(

Okay, this is gonna sound mean, but I enjoyed seeing what happened when I administered drugs to the patients at various points of their therapy. Like,

when dub retreated into his shell, a magic butterfly flew around and turned the room different flashing colors, but got mad when it could not change dub's colors, and turned the room gray instead.

Great game- yet needs more sounds. Some places have great sounds, like sly's dreams, then some are almost completely silent, like Kroko's.
