Global Game Jam 2018: Mellowdy

“Mellowdy” by Léo Marambat-Patinote, Martin Jacob & Eléonore Chaumont.

“A smooth musical game[,] [where] you [have to] gather all the notes[.]”

In “Mellowdy”, you guide a heart on its way through a wonderfully drawn world, which seems to be inspired by old Japanese legends and sagas. The heart has to collect notes, which will be gifted by mysterious animal musicians like a xylophone playing mouse. The goal of this game is to make it to the exit to present the love interest of a songwriter his composition.

But be aware of the dangers of this world, as enormous stone hands want to crush you, while the blowing winds push you towards the walls. Square clouds and prickly branches will be a common obstacle, too. Whenever they are successful in their venture, you will lose one of your notes. That will not only diminish the love song and the reaction of your adored one in the end of this marvelous adventure, but also your playing experience as well, as the background music dynamically changes whenever you collect or lose one of the notes. >>PLAY
