Embol

December, 2017

Embol is a game I made about social anxiety. Made for Ludum Dare 40 (theme: The more you have, the worse it is).

The title of the game was inspired by the word embolalia which refers to certain verbal expressions such as pause filters (e.g. "Like", "Um", "Uh") and other formulaic speech.

Embol has been my most complete and fun game I have created for Ludum Dare. I am very happy with how it turned out.

UPDATE 01/09/2018: I wrote a post-mortem over on my blog about what went right, what went wrong, and what I have learned from making Embol.
