Global Game Jam 2018: transball

“transball” by solosloth.

“[T]rans ball to target[.]”


What I really like about “transball” is the fact that you can interpret it in dozen ways. Of course, it could be just a platformer game with some neat handdrawn art, and maybe it’s just about the transmission of the ball from the beginning to the target. But why are then images of a boy and a girl included? Did one of them drown in the water and it’s about their transmission from life to death? Or is it maybe some kind of story about a kid, which feels the need of changing their gender? It’s possible at least, and I love that “transball” gives me the opportunity as well as the freedom to think about it. Its vagueness is its biggest feature. >>PLAY
