This is an MiniLD70 submission.
Note: The web version has most of the visual effects turned off.

Negative is a game based on Determinism that feels as though it's driven by fate. You could say this game is a metaphor for trying to work your way through the machine of reality. It holds no ill-will towards you, it simply functions... and you're trapped inside.

This game started with an awesome track from https://twitter.com/Mixolydian101. The game is based on phases of the track, so make sure you have your sound on!

7 stages total to match the 7 phases of the song plus an outro on the win screen.

Any feedback provided will help roll into the next versions :D

Future Plans

  • Collision system for non-rectangular objects (opening up a vast new palette for level design)
  • Shaders for lighting and level effects
  • Sync better with the music
  • Powerups/Points/Etc
  • Rewind music back to the checkpoint and quickly play the level backwards
  • Black/White Overlap to create impassable areas
  • Web Version
  • Mobile-friendly version
  • Revisions based on feedback
