a game of grief

Author Comments

For the last 4 months I have been working on my bachelor project, which is a concept for a game that would help teenagers deal with grief.

What you see above is a small introductory game that just explains the premiss for the game. If you would like to know more about the concept, please go to http://sylvesterhansen.wo rdpress.com

As a couple of people have commented o the same things, I will just explain myself. this project is glitchy as hell, I know. I am not a very skilled programmer, and have focused mainly on the visual part of this project. This game was never intended to be more than a quick demo illustrating the story of a much larger project. I am really happy that so many people have been possitive about the project, though. so thank you for all of the comments


I like it but helping teenagers with grief? I dunno bout that lol I felt like shit running past a crying baby and not being able to do anything T_T

i like it, just release the whole thing soon, the grittyness is awesome

Really liking the style and mood of this project so far. The only thing that seemed slightly off were the background noises. They sounded pretty loud before you even saw what was causing them; maybe you could have them start faded and slowly become louder as you reach the person/animal making the sound.

This looks like a great game in the making. I enjoyed this demo and am really looking forward to the finished project! Good luck.

I've always had a taste for abstract, unusual media, and this precursor for your game is no exception.
I really enjoy the mood you captured with the sound score, and of course the pixelated graphics (as I am old school gamer with an appetite for nostalgia).
After visiting the link you provided I must say that I am still unsure about what goal you're trying to achieve initially, but if any of it includes entertainment and an odd sensation of cerebral stimulation, you have indeed done so for me.
As you stated above, yes the game is glitchy thus far (I basically moonwalked through the game), but with some polishing I have no doubt that this project will be nothing far from awesome.
Please continue doing what you do, as I can't wait to play the final product!
Any idea on when that might be??!!
