Time to sit down and write the best novel you can, but there's problems afoot!

In this weird shooter-style game from Sylver's Edge, take control of the main character's brain as he pens his debut novel!

Fire off synapses and destroy bad influences (and power downs), while letting the good influences and powerups through!

Fill up the progress meter while all the crazy brain activity happens, and unlock various endings depending on how far you progress!

Created as a project for my Creative Media Portfolio II course which I was a part of during the summer of 2015.

Of course, the main character is a self-insert since I am planning to get started on a web serial project for the latter half of this year. The game is also a bit of a riff on how I tend to struggle with getting myself to do copious amounts of work, as well as my procrastination habits and my own past failures with writing novels.

I'm hoping to make even more games that are about facets of my personality, and ongoing struggles, so follow me for more content!

Also, there are a few personal "easter eggs" I slipped into some of the endings.

Another video of WB-Project in action. I can't play this with one hand at all... #gamedev #altgames #HomeKeys #SylversEdge
