Project Background

This was a Global Game Jam 2017 entry. We tried to focus on some diversifiers that we thought would be fun. The game supports up to 8 players, those which have only one key to control their character. Players can chose their input method as they like.

Source code is available for download through the GGJ site . Along with the official jam site, Brainwave was also released on in January 2017.
