Remember a few weeks ago, when we reported on a status update about COMA: A Mind Adventure? Well, it’s time to reveal what that project has become over the last year and a half.
The developer for one of the most popular Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns of all time titled Warcelona, Carlos Coronado, has revealed his first full indie game project called MIND: Path to Thalamus a, “First Person Puzzler that throws you into a fantastic and surreal environment” where the player can “bend the natural elements to your will in order to progress in this emotive, mindbending tale.”
Coronado was previously working on COMA: A Mind Adventure, which is now classified as an unreleased project. Some of the assets have been transferred to MIND: Path to Thalamus, but the project is now solely being developed by Coronado. Below you will find an official description of the game along with an all new set of screenshots and a gameplay trailer which shows off the true beauty of this project.
Currently the project is confirmed to arrive on the PC, but Carlos has shown interest in developing it for the PS4 with Project Morpheus support. He also plans to make it Oculus Rift-compatible as well.
Wrapped in a mindbending tale, the gameplay of “MIND” focuses on changing the very weather in order to solve puzzles: the player will cycle between day and night, modify the levels of fog and rain and even travel in time between seasons, changing the environment to advance the gameplay-driven story —indeed, the mechanics are directly related to who the protagonist is, what has happened to him and everything he is doing: a man trapped in his own mind, he must use all the tools at his disposition to escape to reality. Accompanied by the snarky yet heartfelt narration of this comatose patient, the player will guide him through fantastical forests, dark caverns and deceptive worlds of water and ice that directly relate to his emotional state at each point in his journey.
We’ll be sure to try and line up an exclusive interview with Carlos to learn more about MIND. In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with all the latest on MIND: Path to Thalamus.
