Game for UE4s 2018 Epic Mega Games Jam (11/8 – 11/15): link
As a spirt, you must collect enough whisps before dawn so you can pass on from the physical to the spirit world (or else you’ll just turn to mist). There’s also a bit of stipulation that as a spirt you can cross water… I’m totally making that up but it helps with the game.
To move around the physical world, you expel energy by collecting whisps will help you regain energy. The level has lots of streams in it, which is inconvenient since you can’t’ cross them. You can, however, use some of your spirit energy to move logs around and make bridges which, of course, uses up energy.
It is a pretty simple idea but I think the puzzle aspect and setting will make it fun. I’m also going to utilize a low poly style to keep things simple and visually appealing.
