A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Cadence is a stage-based platformer following a child recently diagnosed with a chronic illness.
Navigate through treacherous levels where your vision is limited to your heartbeat. Uncover the thoughts of this child through photos and diary entries.
This game contains a seizure warning!  The heartbeat effect may trigger those with photosensitivity issues.  I played with other options during the limited time we had at the jam, but ultimately they all compromised the design of the game.

Cadence is a game I made for Global Game Jam while at SCAD, with group of people. As such, payments are disabled. If you would like to support my personal work, check out my other games, like Fragile Soft Machines!
