Epitaph on a Hare

Epitaph on a Hare is an experimental exploratory game made in 48 hours during the JamIT Global 2013, a small game jam which was part of the Global Game Jam 2013. The theme for the Global Game Jam was the sound of a heartbeat.

The game was inspired by David Lynch‘s work, H. P. Lovecraft‘s work and William Cowper‘s work and aims to be a surreal exploratory experience. It is inspired by the life of William Cowper, an 18th century poet who suffered from recurring bouts of depression and suicidal thoughts. He took solace in his 3 rabbits Puss, Bess and Tiney. You control William Cowper and must help him restore his sanity.

The game was created by Sune Weber Pedersen, Morten Schnack, Astrid Sønderby Lamhauge and myself. I was heavily involved in the sound design.
