Brothers - austinbreed - 48 Hour Compo Entry

This is a game about brothers who share a bed.

Use the mouse to nudge the colored dots away from their bodies. Try not to let the dots come in contact with the opposing brother.

The narrative poetry was provided by my friend, Matthew Hocker. (dearmeat.me) Everything else is by me.

Newgrounds is currently having some issues with their portal, so I'm temporarily hosting the game on their file dump.

The dots only move one direction. Seems to limit any sort of 'gameplay'. But the general feel, music and graphics are great. I tend to wonder, though, if collaborating (even just on poetry) isn't technically breaking the rules.

I think it was great, the music was nice and fit well, the gameplay was easy to pick up, hard to master, there are different levels as well so it progresses nicely, and it really captured the mood

Thanks for the game. It was an interesting mechanic. Even if the dots only move in one direction, there is the need to touch them with the right amount of force. I had fun with the challenge.

It seems that even if a brother disappears, the dots still affect him. Also it seems that you lose life by pushing a dot out of the game area, even if that dot does not touch a brother.

The poetry was kinda weird :-/
