Bitsy Jam (oh no): Treasure Chest #41

What’s a “Treasure Chest” article?

It’s a short text and video compilation of three to five small jam games we really liked for some reason (like core concept, artwork, effort etc.).

The amount of possible different crime mystery stories in this little Bitsy game is astounding! The game has its own special, weird and funny vibe.

A story like a circle made of water drops: Life meets death, over and over again, authority leads to the wish for freedom while you get thrown back to your cage again, seeking for the source of it all.

Some small, well placed events making it possible for this game to tell a empathic story about depression. Charming in its own way.
