Not sure how it ties to the theme, but excellent mechanic! This could really be made into a killer game. Keep going with it.

Wow, such great shader work. Really appreciate different feelings each of those person's world gave me.
Doesn't fit the theme at all. Maybe just write down some backstory, to set focus for the player.
Where is he, who are those people?

This is really good! I have a hard time connecting it to the theme, but the music/sound and graphics design is really good. Now you need to gamify-it some more so the different minds give you abilities to solve puzzles and traverse the maze/room/world further.. Good potential in here.

Oh my god this is lovely. The mechanic is great! :D

Beautiful work, good concept which could have conceivably been linked to the theme too. Something to definitely develop.

Really interesting mechanic. However its not related to the theme at all.

Very interesting concept that could develop into an awesome puzzle game. Great visuals and audio design. I loved how the music changed with the graphics. Definitely turn this into something amazing!

I spent a lot of time wandering around the worlds and just looking at them in silence. It's an absolutely beautiful game and I love the experience. Right now it doesn't seem to tie in to the theme at all - I wasn't harming the humans from what I could tell.

I think there's tons of places where you could go with this. Please, please develop it into a full game with polished graphics and a game UI. Playing this game felt like playing a Myst game for the first time - just discovering the world as I walked through it. It's one of the rarest experiences in games for me, and I can't remember any other LD game where I've felt the same way.

So yes, it doesn't link the theme that much, but it was an absolutely stunning game and a beautiful experience. Please continue with it.

Very interesting effect, shame that's all this was, no real game or objective and wasn't related the theme either :(

I would love to see this developed further however. As others have suggested a puzzle game with objectives to achieve in each possessed person's perspective to solve a larger problem could be awesome.

You are incredibly good at visualizing emotions. I love that.

Minor remark: please capture the mouse cursor, I hate when it wanders out of the game (two monitors).

Interesting concept! I thing I discovered all the minds available. It would be sweet to see some more complexity on the gameplay, maybe some minigame or mechanic tied between minds, or story. Has good potential!

Superb mood and visuals, and audio to that. Very interesting stuff. As a concept game I'd say it is close to perfect. I'm quite envious, wishing I had similar CG skills. Just add a cursor lock to the web-version and more exploration candy. If there was a way to combine this with procedural generation of content, it could become something truly amazing.

I think you've got a nice mechanic for some mind bending puzzles here. And it's fun just on its own !

Great job. Very nice mood !

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
