An Ocean of Thoughts

by Ellian - MiniLD 56 Entry

I was too busy this month to do a proper game jam entry, so I made this in a total of 3 hours!

I went with both Awww for goals, Most keyboard keys and Only one mechanic for challenge, and Fishing for theme. :)

It's not really good, it's very artsy, but I hope you like it!

Love it! How many levels are there? I've only got to level 11 but I am really curious how the story goes!

An interesting way to tell a story. It's a bit too depressing for my mood though. :D

I like the concept, but I'm not sure if I have much interaction with the plot. I tried many things but it always ends with a downer ending around day 6.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a good or at least bitter-sweet ending I missed?

Yeah, I am curious if there is a "good" ending...?

Interesting concept, played through a couple times and police keep coming after me? Maybe a little more instructions could help but great game and good job with the theme/goal/challenge.

Thanks everyone!

And no, there's not much more to it... again, I only gave myself 3 hours to do this.

Basically, your only control over the story is to try to delay the inevitable; the only thing that change is how fast the story is told.
Ultimately, if I could, I'd do different endings and a real difficulty balance, but... eeeeeeh. :)

Hello !

I find your story interresting, the way you have to write the thoughts of the character is kind of unusual, well done.

You nailed it, and deserve even more since you did it so fast. Congratulations !

The.. best.. game.. ever. I can't relate to all of it, but still xD

Nice concept, really deep. I included it in my MiniLD #56 compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out!

I also included your game in an article of my favorites!
There is now a trophy on your profile as well :)
