Welcome to Mind Boggled! You play as two halves of Johms brain, trying to fix his mind!
WASD/Arrow keys to move Z/Enter to select That's about it!
What does this game have in store?
Thank you for asking, me! This game includes...
A unique movement system!You move both brains at once, causing for some fun challenges!
This is Johm.
These puzzles include doors, timers, buttons, turrets, and moving platforms!
A fun story!
Last but not least,
I hope you enjoy playing this, because I sure enjoyed making it!
I gave up on the vertical level with turrets in the middle because of the inconsistencies between the two sides. And when I finally had my two halves at the top, some frames dropped for some reason and blue barely missed the jump, landing on the spiked. This level was hell because everything started moving but you had to press z to skip the textbox, which, if you forgot, meant you had to wait for the platforms, and the timing was all messed up and you got shot. The timing in the middle section is also way to strict, and with both brains having different gravity, it's really hard to get them to jump at the same time here.
Apart from that level, I thought the previous one were fine, it had some interesting interactions, and it wasn't too complicated either. One this though: clouds as moving platforms may not be the best idea when you also have clouds of the same color in the backgrouds.
As for the story, I wasn't a fan of the humour. The fact that it felt kinda broken didn't help, with textboxes going in and out for no reason and brains changing side, it was a little hard to follow. But the different facial expression were great.
PS: gender =/= sex.

The story and personalization of the halves of the brain were great. However there have been way too many "control 2 characters at once" games in this jam to be original :/ Also that final level was kind of annoying with basically a starting auto-kill.

This was fun. The platforming could get really fiddly at times though. Also, I really love the narrative elements, but the chat frames were really inconsistent, where the red and blue brains would switch sides, or sometimes be on both sides at the same time. This makes it seem like that side of the brain is talking to itself. It would be better if the red was always on the left and the blue was always on the right (or vice versa).
Gameplay was pretty good. I wish there was a bit more of a puzzle element to solving the stages though, or trickier movements required
I guess humour can be pretty hit or miss depending on the person. Not sure how I feel about the humour in this game, some of the stuff weirded me out a little

Good game with funny idea. Difficulty is balanced - not too easy and not too hard. I appreciate the story cutscene.
Those dialogues between levels were rather pointless.
