The Networked Empathy Bank (tm) is a space where they upload  and de-fragment the world's jumbled consciousness. Remna-Bot-2k finds and collates remnants and fragments of memory from across TNEBs archive zones, recreating person specific empathy archives. Its subject today is AG1970TQQ+. What does AG1970TQQ+ have to say about the different spaces and communities they occupy in their life and why are other Remna-bots trying to subvert this project?

TO PLAY

  • Collect all the memory fragments.
  • Deliver them to the subject's personal empathy archive folder.
  • Avoid other Remna-bots corrupting the remnants and fragments of memory.
  • Use cursor keys to play and Z X to move through title and about screens.

This narrative based arcade game was created with Pico-8 for Rainbow Game Jam 19(a jam exploring LGBT+ themes).

This game was really fun to play! I love that it had a deeper message about transphobia. It reminded me of pacman with the thrill factor of trying to navigate this maze without running into one of the red figures. The ever-changing maze showcased the tumultuous nature of navigating a world that is so ridden with transphobia. I like the contrast of the colorful figures against the background! 10/10 :)

Thanks for the great feedback. I really appreciate it. :)

I like the idea of the game, although it was a little difficult to navigate because it was very easy to get stuck in various places in the map. The idea of the game is really nice, relating to the real world of how trans people can easily be put down by comments yet built up by uniting with other people. Eventually, they will reach a point where they are satisfied with themselves, and even when they are hit with something negative their emotional state will not break. 

Sorry about the sticky maze. I struggled to get it right, but it didn't work as well as I'd hoped. Thanks for the positive feedback, though. :)
