This Intellectual Odyssey is a submission for Ludum Dare 45. View all gamesView submission

Inspired by the entire history of mankind, Big Brain Boy: An Intellectual Odyssey (abrv. BBB) chronicles the collective cognitive evolution of our species, exploring how our attention turned from what lies beneath our feet to what lies beyond the stars. You begin as Doug, a humble man who quite literally knows nothing, and share in his elation as he discovers sight, smell and speech for the very first time. No game before has so viscerally and accurately captured the magic of learning.

In BBB, curiosity is your guide, as you explore you surroundings and activate segments of your mind through pulse-pounding bullet hell gameplay. As Doug’s intelligence grows, so does his confidence, leading him on an earnest crusade to become the savior of humanity. Is your brain the brain of galaxies?

Created by Nathan Smith, Alex Weiser, and Dominic Napoleon.
