Cave Adventure

Heartbeat based cave adventure. An adventure in colour and lighting techniques.

WASD movement, space bar to jump, left click to increase your heart beat. It will return to normal over time.

The idea was originally developed while discussing the theme of a recent Game Jam. The idea being that you are blind and ‘see’ by your heartbeat. being in a state of calm or melancholy gives you a faint blue sheen, and an awareness of other creatures around you. B raising your heartrate you become more aware of your immediate surroundings but you loose your connection with the life in the cave.
