The Grief of Quetzalcoatl

Game Information
screenshot
Short Introduction: 
"The ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow." - Carl Jung The Grief of Quetzalcoatl is a metaphorical game where players have to guide the main characters through a series of memories to confront the haunting "Ghosts of the Past". Players have to Absorb the ghosts to overcome them, however, absorbing Ghosts damages the player but also raises their maximum health in the long run, in reference to the rather ambivalent nature of facing up to one's inner Ghosts. Coupled with a reinterpretation of the Quetzalcoatl legend, the game spurs players to ponder deeper about the game's metaphorical meaning through its mechanics and its meaning.

Pursuing the Infinite

Game Information
screenshot
Short Introduction: 
To me Ouroboros represents eternity, the infinite, and cyclical systems. In my game you are moving a head around space. Life is constantly draining, but collecting blue life-force keeps you alive longer. However, it also puts you into a higher momentum and high risk for encountering red life-force, which greatly detracts from your overall life. Balance the system to the best of your abilities in order to collect as much blue as possible in this infinitely large, procedurally generated game. Some may recognize the title of this game as the title of Adam Saltsman's talk at Indiecade in 2011, and for those who may be concerned, yes I do have his permission to use it as my title here. :-)
