What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are a development team that prioritizes fun, the most important value of games. Platformer games are a quite common genre, but there aren’t many games where a player alone controls two characters at the same time. While going through Early Access and getting feedback from players, we would like to check how the game can bring the most fun to the players and try to supplement and correct the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently we are considering an early access period of 3 months to as long as 1 year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Over the early access period, more difficult maps will be added, together with many additional functions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, we have completed 5 stages of 1 level of difficulty. There are three modes to enjoy these stages. If you are a normal player, it will take 2-3 hours to clear all stages with the most basic difficulty level. If the game feels too easy, try Hell mode!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will not be changed even after the game is officially released.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

About This Game

Brain Meltdown - Into Despair is a platformer game with a unique concept, where you need to control two characters by yourself. (This is not a co-op game!)

Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot. – Charles Chaplin

To clear the basic difficulty level of Brain Meltdown - Into Despair, you may play 2~4 hours and try 300~500 times. It is no wonder you die several times in this game. So, do not despair in any circumstance. At first, you would feel difficult to just move two characters at the same time but after hundreds of times of despair, you will find two characters happily hopping over our beautiful map!

Into Despair is also a fun game to watch others streaming their gameplay! In our game, there are several serious obstacles that may hold back players, but in the eyes of viewers, those obstacles look not that serious...well, they look so easy peasy lemon squeezy! Viewers might scream, "What an idiot! Why die there!"

Never be afraid of trying this game! Even my mother cleared all stages after hundreds of times of trial.

Give this game as a gift to your friends or favorite streamers!
