While I put other things that I posted here previously on hold, until I can test and fine tune them on actual hardware (I am group 2, so can't be too long anymore), I put together another game idea in the last few days, that I would like to share.
Again, I do not have a Playdate yet, so there is a good chance it is awfully slow on the device, and some things are broken, but it's running fine in the Pulp simulator.
It's more of a game mechanic so far, and lacks a proper story, but the idea is that the protagonist has to make it through all the rooms by using their one power: shifting between phases (think liquid phases from chemistry/physics - once you try, you'll know what I mean)
The controls are explained in the game and introduced bit by bit, so I am not saying anymore about them.
Additionally (B) brings up a menu, that allows you to prematurely turn on certain controls, but this is just for myself for testing, so please do not touch this unless you want to spoil part of the fun.
There are currently 12 or so rooms just to introduce the game mechanics, and somewhat of an ending (It will also say "THE END" so you know you made it there :))
Here are a few screenshots and the Pulp file. Feel free to try it out.
