Engine: Game Maker 8
This year I participated in the 2013 Global Game Jam. Myself, along with thousands of other designers across the world, spent 48 sleep-deprived hours working on a game themed around the sound of a heartbeat. My friend Vincent and I created a spooky Pac Man type game in which you must find your way out of a maze guided only by a heartbeat in the distance. Or maybe that heartbeat is your own? It’s not certain; what you do know is you really don’t want that ultra scary triangle catching up with you.
Vince and I wanted to experiment with creating a spooky game that juxtaposed simple geometric greyscale graphics with well refined sound design. We are extremely stoked on the result!! It’s a very suspenseful game. We even got runner up for a sound design award (though everyone I know says we should have won that category).
Here’s a link to the .exe game. Remember to wear stereo headphones with the left & right speakers on correct!!
