I'm gonna have to say that I don't quite get it yet...

I like how you approached the theme, but I couldn't seem to find any gameplay.
It was quite unsettling seeing his "mind" shrinking like that, even with these simple graphics. I wouldn't call it fun, though.
Endurion says ...
Interesting take on the theme.
erik says ...
I like the interpretation of the theme. Had trouble figuring out the gameplay though.
HybridMind says ...
Well.. managed to get 4/13 tokens after a couple more play thrus. Seems that I can't quite figure out how to make the text stay long enough to read it once you've triggered a token. I want to be able to learn about the story so this seems like a little bug or maybe I'm just not getting how it works. It is strangely sad and compelling to play this game so congrats there. It isn't really fun at all but that is fine by me. I'm glad to see what you did with the theme. I also gave you a 1/5 on Food.. because your name is hamburger. :)

I didn't get it until I read your description. Before that I was just trying to slap the guy as hard as I could :).

Sadly fading.. Those words popped into my head when I played this. It's the name of a SID-tune, which is now playing in my head. Starts out with a long solo and then gets some really nice bass and melody just as it ends. Funny how the mind works.
Feels more like interactive art than a game. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing.. I wouldn't call it fun though =]
DrPetter says ...
I don't get it. It's confusing and disturbing.
nilsf says ...
Quite bleak. As mjau said, it's more art than game.
The best I could get was two tokens.

i like that this is about an internal wall of doom - cancer - rather than an external one. i think it might be presented in a way that keeps it from being as effective as it might be, though. if it played for longer, i think it would give players more time to get a sense of what was going on by flailing, and would be more suggestive of the slow creep of this particular kind of wall of doom.
Hempuli says ...
Very interesting entry. Requires a bit too much reflexes, perhaps, the best I could get to was around 9 tokens.
jsb says ...
Sorry, I didn't know what to do. Found max 3 tokens by clicking random parts. Couldn't find any difference between the two playing modes. :/

Here it is! Enjoy yourself!
For those of you who haven’t been keeping up with the progress of this, I won’t spoil it by telling you what it’s all about.
Coded in ActionScript 3.0 with Tweenlite, with art drawn in Flash CS3, and sound created in sfxr.
Good morning friends!
For anyone who feels like playing a very unfinished game, here’s the state of mine as of last night. The beginnings of the gameplay are there: notice now as you switch between your senses, sometimes you experience portions of the outside world. That’s what the deathbed experience is all about.
I have like 10 things on my list for the next 12 hours, so I better get to work.
Gosh, I’m moving really slow. I’m going to have to start working harder.
My game is sort of playable. The game is about being on your deathbed, and in this build you can experience yourself slowly dying. You can focus your energy on different parts of your body by clicking, which has no effect right now except clicking on the brain, which slows down your death.
I guess you guys are going to want me to make this more GAMEY now. Fine. I’ll add points and crap. That’s coming up next.
OK, with 33 hours remaining, hamburger’s finally going to start thinking about getting started.
“Advancing wall of doom” is a pretty morbid theme, guys. I feel compelled to make a game about the original wall of doom, that one that is advancing upon us all – death, of course!
I picture myself on my deathbed, waves in my head slowly shrinking to whispers, then nothing. I have a little bit of energy left in me, but not enough to run the whole machine of my body. Should I focus it in my eyes, to see my loved ones around me? Or in my ears, to hear what they’re saying? Or in my hands, to feel when they hold them? Or should I focus all my energy inside my head, to keep those waves alive?
Is this a game? I hope so. I’m going to try to run with it. If you have any suggestions, please make them.
