A short game. Well more like a short film. Well more like an experimental short film in ever-so-slightly interactive of a format.

Enjoy your walk. Interact with your surroundings. Or don't. Have a forgotten, but hopefully not forgetful, experience.

I think this was ok. I enjoyed the art style a lot, though all the shifting around and such hurt my eyes. My main problem is that its well, so short. I think the idea of playing a game that puts you in the place of someone suffering through or caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease could be really interesting, educational, and thought provoking. This short game only skims the surface of that idea, though I guess its a nice place to start.

Game jams don't generally provide enough time to create a fully-realized, feature-length narrative. Always better to create something short and leave you wishing there was more than to write a novel that you'll just close halfway through. I'd rather do this topic justice in a short piece than fail to give it gravity in a longer one. I'm happy you enjoyed what was there.

I do look forward to exploring this topic more in-depth when the time constraints allow it.

*never mind, the game jam is actually a month longer than I thought. All questions against length and my intelligence are valid.

Very interesting game you have here, The music here is beautiful and the game makes me wonder what would happen if I was a man that had Alzheimer. You did a very good job and it is one of the most interesting games I have ever played.


dylan responds:

The way you phrased that made it seem like my game had made you wonder what it would be like to be a man. For a minute or two I was really impressed that I had swayed someone's gender identity with a video game.
