A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

You are a prisoner on an intergalactic mining vessel. That is, until a swarm of vicious quadruped aliens attack! There are escape pods.. but you do not have the authority to use them. Can you and the other three prisoners manager to escape alive?

  • WASD to move. 
  • Space to jump.
  • Mouse to look and shoot. 
  • E to interact and talk.

Big Mood was originally going to be a cross between Doom and a Dating sim. However, this is what we ended up with! Not so much dating... as it is just visual novel inspired.

There is five possible endings based on your choices in game.

We were also part of a local game jam that started at 10 am on Saturday and ended at 9 pm Sunday, with the theme "Life is Bad" 

Post Jam Changes

  • You can now press (ESC) to bring up the options menu while playing, which also allows you to return to the title screen at any time.
  • Default mouse sensitivity is lower (Sorry about crazy settings in jam version)
  • Mouse sensitivity sliders have been added to the options screen.
  • Holding down shift will let you move slower

Just played it :-D Is this... the only ending? Great job for an LD entry, clearly created by those with experience!  Love the FPS aesthetics & must have been so much to make.. the pixel characters + Probuilder level design + chill color scheme, all things that stood out to me :-)
