Ranked from 1 rating. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your submission match the theme?
On a basic level, a single button (the spacebar) is used for all actions. The player must press the button at various beats to produce different actions, so the rhythm of the game becomes multi-purpose. On a deeper level, we attempted to make individual actions dual purpose on an emotional level through both relieving and inducing stress.

Interesting and trippy game! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)
