JimJam 1: Litbub’s Idea Delivery Service

“Litbub’s Idea Delivery Service” by Andrew C. Wang.

“[A game featuring] an “idea light bulb” trying to transmit inspiration from person A to person B, with a social network maze of people in between. Storms of distraction and negativity can sap inspiration and break the trail of inspiration, so you must build a robust and redundant network of inspiration.”

“Litbub’s Idea Delivery Service” is a fantastic visualization of the spreading of ideas as well as inspiration between humans. You have to jump from the starting mind to another one nearby, to get your idea from one person to another. Your task is to guide the light bulb character from the starting point to the blue head.

While that sounds easy, there are two things working against you: First of all, the time, as you only have one to two minutes to finish each level, and secondly the dark clouds of negativity. They will afflict the former creative minds, so that they will not have the idea anymore, and by doing so your carefully built network may collapse. So better be quick to spark the people with your beloved ideas. >>PLAY
