Sound Mind

Sound Mind

Made by Chuck Jordan

A two-player hide-and-seek game for Playdate.

From the Last Will and Testament of Richman Q DeSeese:

"Being of sound mind, I hereby bequeath my entire fortune in unnaturally heavy doubloons to my selfish and conniving children, Kane and Mabel.

On one condition: they must spend the night locked in my haunted study, with its cursed grandfather clock that stops time for one person every 30 minutes."

Why settle for half of a fortune, if you could have it all? You and a friend (or a bitter enemy) take turns using a variety of hiding places, secret passages, and traps to make sure that you end the night with the entire inheritance, and your sibling ends up with nothing.

But be aware: your opponent can hear every single thing you do, and they'll be eager to steal the money back on their next turn!
