Game: nightlight

I attempted to address positive ways to deal with depression and fear through gameplay. Mainly, focus on the good things and collect them (blue lights) and rely on the things that you love/make you feel safe to protect you from negative emotions. This game uses AR technologies. You must also download Reactivision found at http://reactivision.sourceforge.net/ (also included in the build) Place the glyph (included) on something that you love or makes you feel safe. You may hold it up to the camera at any time.

Diversifiers

The Truth is Out There: Some external real world element, such as weather, time of the day, etc, affects gameplay. It MUST affect gameplay and can’t be only a scenario element.
No cheating (please): The game system relies on willing player participation to enforce the rules of the game world (e.g., hold your breath, close your eyes, etc.).
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…
Bigger Picture: The game touches on a political, environmental or social issue.

Executable or Installer

Start Reactivision (included) and place the glyph on somehting you love (or makes you feel safe). Hold that up to the screen during gameplay.
