Take control of (N)PCs, enemies and bosses and use them to solve puzzles in a retro platforming adventure!

Other Minds is a pixel art style game where you play as Ed and Sage. Ed is your human who you can use for your standard platforming action, whereas Sage can fly around freely and take control of any other character.

  • Use Sage, a floating green consciousness, to possess and take control of basically anything that moves
  • Loads of secrets and collectibles which are used to unlock time trials and rhythm levels

Key information:

  • Available for Windows and Linux for $8.00
  • 6 worlds to explore
  • 4 hours+ gameplay
  • Project first started on 5th May 2019
  • Released 30th November 2020

Current Status/Future Plans

Other Minds is a complete experience, however it is not completed as originally intended.

The player is able to finish the game to 100% completion and view the ending, however they might notice that the story doesn’t really go anywhere and there are a few loose ends left in.

Development of Other Minds has now halted indefinitely.
