Game: ektopy

ektopy is a game about a system being torn apart by your illegal birth. It uses a microphone to pick up your breath, which the player must regulate: firstly for the ordeal of birth, then to sustain your field of vision as you flee the system purge. We didn't quite finish in the time limit. There was meant to be another gimmick that would have added a lot more to the later stages, and we also meant for the heartbeat (and therefore the required player breathing rate) to change situationally--but there wasn't time to test that. Partly inspired by the 1984 speccy game Deus Ex Machina. Check it out.


True Colors: The game uses only the basic 16 colors: black, gray, silver, white, maroon, red, olive, yellow, green, lime, teal, aqua, navy, blue, purple and fuchsia. See color chart
Approved for All Audiences: The game must not show any violence, not even cartoonish. Stepping on living mushrooms is off the list, as is killing any type of enemies, not even undead, though we know they’re already dead…

Lovely aesthetic! Pretty confusing, though... it restarted for me, which I'm guessing is because I failed somehow.
