A look into the mind of a person surviving in a bleak world, September 13, 2023

This is a Bitsy game, a kind of game that uses arrow keys to control minimalistic pixel images.

In this game, you pass through the mind of someone who is deeply concerned about the world. Passing through the mind once gives one thought, which can stick in your brain (usually only bad things) or pass through. The background images change depending on the person's reaction.

Topics include things like dating, climate change, police brutality, and others.

Overall, the concept works thematically. There's not really any kind of choices, though since it's in the One Choice Jam it might have made sense to have a decision at the end. Overall, everything that was here was well-made, it just felt a bit light overall.

The jar that keeps on fillingÖ, August 21, 2023

Seeing the news, it sometimes feels like the world is a shitty place, and things keep getting worse. Itís not hard to drown in negative headlines and feel bombarded by tragic events left and right. And no matter what we do or say, things donít seem to change.

And, even with positive things happening around us, negative thoughts will often linger, sticking for a while, until the sheer size of it all overwhelm us. This is what this entry manages to evoke with the visual of the bitsy engine, with the thought bubbles sticking around, piling onto one another, until it fills up the screen.

While I did somewhat expected it to happen, since the same thing happens to me, it was still distressing to have these feelings visualised before your eyes. The entry is devoid of any meaningless words and descriptions, only leaving the pure unaltered thoughts on the screen. The Good. The Bad. And the Ugly.
