Other Minds Demo | Xbox One

Other Minds Demo
Xbox One

Join Ed and Sage on a puzzle platforming adventure!


This is an early demo build to showcase Other Minds - a pixel art style platformer with possession mechanics which allows the player to control enemies, (N)PCs and bosses.

The demo has 8 levels, including a boss fight, one secret level and a hub level. The game focuses on exploration, finding collectibles and solving puzzles. It also features a playable and pettable cat!

Other Minds is still in active development. I aim to release incremental updates to add large chunks of content at a time. Save data will be compatible between updates.

As I am still actively working on the game, any comments about anything you think would improve the game are highly appreciated. I have already made many improvements based on feedback I've received.
