Alone in His Mind

by 89cookies - 48 Hour Compo Entry

John travels through is mind drowned in insanity. An introspection about himself and about both his past and future.

The game is incomplete. There was a lot more that I wanted to make, but as first time with Unity and a to greedy game design the game ended up not being completed.

But there's still the soul in there and I hope that you can see what I intended to make.

WASD - Movement
Left Mouse Button - Touch
Right Mouse Button - Pick Up

Note, when you touch something the area around iluminates, you can use it to your advantage in dark situations.

I made a build for MacOS but since I don't have any Mac computer, I'll have to blindly trust in Unity. I made a Universal package, but if you need something specific, just leave a word in the coments.

Sorry for Linux-only users, Unity doesn't provide Linux binaries. I'll try to confirm on my PC if the game works in Wine.

I think with more time and development this could have been pretty interesting, especially the switch of game mechanics per level. although i fell out of the world in the 3rd level (went through the doors) and stopped playing, i felt like the 2nd level was a bit unforgiving. also the ambient music in level 3 was a good choice.

Similar to Redwind, with a bit more work, this could be quite nice. Personally, the player speed feels too slow, jumping too high and the mouse movement feels off. Keep at it though!

I would like to have been able to move a bit faster, perhaps holding down shift to run or something.

Wow. I was going to complain about the lack of sound in the first level, but the play on sounds and music you did in the 2nd and 3rd levels is beautiful. Really, really well done. Somehow the almost completely darkness of the 2nd level made me feel the mood of loneliness and despair. At first I was all lost, then I noticed how I could follow the music and manage to find my way. I suspect I was able to do so because I have an habit of using headphones; I am not sure if I would be able to find the music sources with regular speakers.

I hope you find the time to finish this game. With some polish (I concur the the player needs more speed) this could be very good.

I'd suggest making a web build to save having to install it, you'll get a LOT more reviews that way...

does not work under WINE unfortunately, game loads but can't grab mouse, so it's impossible to do anything (or exit the game for that matter, it has to be killed from another shell). Sorry but can't rate :/

I couldn't touch things... I think... I don't know, it was lighting up but nothing happened when I pressed the red buttons...
